Big thank you goes out to everyone who came out for a great day of wheeling.
We had a large turn out with over 20 rigs over half of which were female drivers. We also had many new wheelers one of which was just 16.¬† We split the group up between newer drivers and those who have more experience. Call out to Ashley who despite the fear of god in her eyes tackled the trail like a pro.
The day was full of learning.¬† Moose demonstrated how to navigate the rock garden.¬† It is ok it is not his rig.¬† Jake had two educational contributions to the run.¬† The first was driving a JK through a rock Garden while flying a drone.¬†¬† The second was how to use a high lift jack to get your Jeep off a big rock in the rock garden because you were flying a drone while driving.¬†¬† (Actually I don’t think it had anything to do with driving and flying at the same time but I like my version.)
Both groups met up at mud lake for lunch where several jeeps rolled through the water.¬† At least two got some water in the intake but were able to get running again after some wrenching.¬† A JK also got high centered on a stump I guess while trying to show flex.¬† Curt grabbed a hand from one of the Yotas and pulled the jeep back over the stump.¬† Curt collected the tow fee right there and handed it to Moose.
More education and learning came when Dirt Ball and Jamie¬† demonstrated a winch recovery when Curt got his wife’s new Rubicon stuck in a muddy rut.¬†¬† Jamie was way to excited about using her new winch and was hoping that Curt would get stuck again.¬† No luck as Wendy soon took over driving.
Thank you to Moose, Jake, and dirtball for bringing there trail expertise and making sure that everyone was having a safe and fun time.
We did have a little trouble on the way back with navigation but we all made it off the trail.¬† Lots of smiles in the parking lot as we aired up all the rigs.
Lots of new faces too which was great.
