Hot Springs run

Yet again we had another great weekend riding up at Hot Springs. There were more rigs there than I've ever seen and some high dollor rigs as well. (aside from the PIG)

Me and the old lady pulled in camp around 9ish and it wasn't long before the fun started. There was only three of us in our group but it helps to cover some ground faster that the 20 plus rig caravans you saw around the park.

We started off on Hummdinger which is a cake walk if it's dry. The very start of it is realy the only hard part of the trail.


After hummdinger we crossed over to Ingrids Revenge and walked it as well. We did have to stop a few times due to the Built Geo was over heating.

Here are a few pics of Ryns monster. He just opened up a new off road shop and has put out some killer buggies so far. Kryptonite Kustoms






Jonas in his unstopable Zuki.


After that little cake walk we headed over to Four Fingers. As luck would have it the rain came in and got this suker slick!!!! There was a small hold up when a few other rigs where haveing hell getting up the slick ledge.







Sorry Jonas, didn't get any pics of you on this one.

I'll post more in a little bit. Time to feed!!!!

Feedin time is over!!! lol

After Four Fingers we looped around and ran Gregs Rocks. This trail is one of my favorite trails since it's full of huge rocks and a few good ledges to climb.

Here is the built to the hilt GEO flexin it out!!!!!






Then it was time for Jonas to walk on up.




Now it was the PIGs turn.(for all you tree huggin hippies, I was not on the dead tree!!!!)






After playing on Gregs Rocks we headed over to Too Easy!!!! There is nothing easy about this nightmare!!! Jonas and the built Geo were able to get to the huge ledge but ellected not to pull cable and turn back around. I had no chance of getting the PIG up that trail since all it is was loose rocks, mud, water, and more loose rocks. I would have struck oil before I found some traction. No PICS

After being denied on Too Easy we ran over to Vertical Challege and this trail freakin rocks!!! It's short but has a very good entrance that gets the adrenaline flowing. I had my front passenger tire five feet in the air before it finaly came back over. The wife was in with me so no pics on this one either. I'm the only one that ever brings a digital camera with me!!!!

After a late lunch we moved over to Slammer where the Geo had enough and called it a day with over heating problems. So it was up to me and Jonas to climb this one. Jonas never spun a tire and walked up to the top but I had other plans. I got hung up to where I could go forward or reverse!!!! After some helpful spotting from Jonas I found some bite and made my way to the top.





But it came with a price!!!!! This ram lasted all of 8 hours before I smashed it!!!! It wasn't working very well so no hard feelings.
Ram for sale (cheap)



After crushing my rear ram I was done so I just rode around take pics of some of the cool buggies.

I think this might be a coleworks knock off. Either way it was nice!!!






This thing was sick!!!! Coleworks buggy I think.


I've got a video of the Kryptinite buggy bouncing up this hill. It's STEEP and the pics or vid does not do it justice. I've only seen a hand full of rigs to go up it. Most that try it pull out their sissy card and back down. I won't even try it!!!! lol



I've got a few vids to upload so I'll be back.

LOL i didn't think about that. i'm sure most of the runs/parks i end up in will have been wheeled by the rig first.

It took forever but I got a few vids to load.

This one is of Jonas on the water fall at the end of Ingrids Revenge.




This one is the PIG on Four Fingers. This part gets stupid slick when it's wet and this is the only way you can get up it. There where some Toyota's in front of us with crawl rations of 2 million to one and they tried to crawl it for ever with out luck. They finally put it in a higher gear and gave it hell with all 25 horses they had on tap.

The PIG is use to having to hammer up everything.



This is Ryan in his monster buggy clawing his way to the top of this nasty hill. This one needs to be seen in person because it's scary steep. You get out of shape on this one and it's roll baby roll for you!!!!
