Got home at 10:30 to 60 degrees
I tried to keep your roof from dragging on that tree but unfortunately couldn't do it.
I tried to keep my skid plates from dragging unfortunately
I couldn’t do it
Valiant effort Gary. Thank you.
Thanks to everyone who helped us navigate a couple hairy spots. Could not have made it out with no damage otherwise. I was very impressed with the truck in stock form to say the least. That being said- the lift is in the mail!
Was it AARP day at Rausch? Who's that old F'er in the yellow jacket?
Escapee from the local sanitarium!
Nick actually rode most of the trails with his helpers spotting from the sunroof! GX's are roomier inside than they look.
Few more I don't think I posted...
It didn't take long for a failure so epic that the camera couldn't even cover the whole thing.
"The legend lives on from the Rausch Creekers on down
2 wheel drive Pacer's getting a tugging." (bonus points if you can name the song I'm using here)
Gary continuing to walk us down the first real obstacle. He made me make it look easy, even though my brakes sounded like they were bowing the lowest cello note for half of it.
I think Onur claimed responsibility for this one...? My only damage for the weekend, thanks to a tree at the bottom of the descent above and below.
Yep, right about here is where the cello serenade started.
@CatskillsRunner attempting to steam clean the 100.
Only two people played. Onur lost. Note the light colored rocks center bottom of the shot.
I couldn't pass up taking a full stuff selfie.
The Swisher Sweets dispensary.
I won. Note the rocks again. Granted, the ruts and the gods of not enough clearance actually won.
Random cesspool that I managed to NOT fall into.
Onur leads the way.
I need to remember to wipe the headlights before leaving the restaurant in the dark next time.
@landwagon showing his bottom.
Tim gives a ride to The Backseat Strangler.
Doing what it was meant to do!
Pre-dinner grub and glug at O'Neal's Pub.
Tim enjoyed getting fudged.
Just a pic for reference of the angle. There was a nice muddy 90-degree left at the bottom of this hill. Then came that damned Time Waster Rock. Yeah, I know this pic is out of sequence.
We decided to start Day 2 with a trip to the mall.
Tim didn't have to look like an idiot just to point to his right... Couldn't have hurt, though.
Seriously, dude. Shortcut to the mall.
The end of Day #2. Actually, just the end of my photo efforts for the day. We dropped Nick's GX off at the parking lot and his wife and him rode shotgun in other trucks for the harder stuff.
I'm paranoid. And afraid of fire. Damn right I made sure the flammable ground cover was well below the cats!
I had a great time with everybody on this trip, even "Jimmy the truck driver who was getting an unplanned engine rebuild on his semi and had to spend about a week at our hotel, and only had one set of clothes, and wore his safety yellow jacket at all times, even inside, and loved to talk more than I do during my happy moments, and who I thought was part of our group when I met him Friday morning hanging out at our trucks talking to Tim so I just acted like he knew who the hell I was talking about when I mentioned people or trucks". You know...Jimmy.
One of my favorite moments was Nick finally asking to take me up on my offer of letting him drive my 80. Turns out there was only about 50 feet of trail left...and he stuck it pretty much immediately! He still smiled the entire time, even when apologizing for 'breaking my truck' while it was hung up in the rocks.
^^^ True story there ... just two tough rocks and it being a little slick on the incline. I think Nick liked the puddles. The ones on the NE side don't hide big rocks in the water like the main property does.
Great moment for me was looking at a larger rock obstacle with John and suggesting he could alter his line to bump over it more easily and he smiled and said "yeah, but that would be cheating".
Awesome pics John.
The lex’s little 8” bottom is cute,
But she’s going to need a bigger one to keep that stuff up.
Even better picture description.
This made me laugh... nice caption.
