Here are the few pics that showed up on my camera. Didn't take many

Overall a *decent* event with very mild wheeling. With no recent rain, the trails were rather dry and uneventful. There was one challenging section of a trail that of some of us, ahem, had to winch through.

The Wilds has a new zipline tour that was pretty cool.

The trails changed in 10 min today with the rain!
Too bad everyone packed up and left before the rain.

Thank you to everyone who came out!

The first photo speaks for itself.

While the trails were dry and not slippery, I thought it was really cool to see how extreme an angle and how much grip my truck had. There were a few short dips at serious steep angles that I clung to like spiderman.

RE: L8 soft shackles -> true believer.

Oh ... My kid thought the animals were cool too.

Was Justin still having belt issues (with the truck, not those tight shorts)?
