South Texas Canyon caliche pit

Had a blast today as we were priviliged enough to wheel with some guys who pay to play at this caliche pit. Yeah its caliche but its local and a ton of fun!!! Didn't get much pictures as I forgot the camera but used my phone with what little battery I had. Here is what I got. Pictures do no justice whatsoever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!










Nasty crazy climb.........possibly the craziest my brother has ever done down here. Too bad it was loose and my brother knocked the high parts down so its not as hard. Only rocky at the top. If you have ever been to the orginal Katemcy it kinda reminds me of baby hueys crack (I think that is what its called) but worse cause there is no traction whatsoever!!!!

Looks like a decent place to wheel. I bet stickies don't matter out there though.

Haha yeah stickies didn't mean crap out there.........all loose dirt and some hard packed dirt that seemed like rock. No traction out there whatsoever so hardly any way to break except for the fact you have to use the throttle all the way up everything haha........

That skinny pedal/loose dirt combo is what broke all my stuff down there at the other place.

Stop being scared to come out of the closet. We all know you really want a Yota.
