Went out for a drive today...

Testing out my new build on local trails. I never actually got to wheel it before taking it for a weekend at Rausch Creek where she performed flawlessly. Nevertheless I wanted to give a few local spots a shot. Literally walked right up everything.

One of the hardest climbs we have. The slick rock is hard to get traction on and it's starting to break away at the bottom.

Just for perspective here is it from another point of view, I've done it a few times before but it was always hit or miss depending on conditions and had to keep wheel speed up a little higher. You can see me slip and slide around a little bit on the slick rock, lol.



Of course I took some nice poser pics while I was up there (the whole 5 minutes from home and all).






Amazing the quality of photos an old Iphone 4 can take cameras are really amazing these days even on phones.

Thanks K9dozer! It's about a 5 minute drive from my home, I guess I take it for granted sometimes
