I just realized you are from Texas... I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know about snakes... lol
Holy crap was it fun! And VERY slick. It had rained the night before for about 12 hours. It was muddy as can be. And the picture of my jeep doesn't come close to showing the slope we were on. It was pretty steep.
For my first real outing, it was a huge challenge. It was an even mix of mud and rock crawling, but Muddy Mudskipper performed better than I could have expected!
I remember every switchback, I would look up the hill and say "Aw, hell no.. there is no way I'm making it up there."... Then next thing I know, I'm bouncing and scraping my way up.
I'm going to try to get more pictures up tonight.
This was a place here in North Alabama called Hollytree ORV Park. He has over 400 acres of trails. Many are serious rock crawling trails that only the most modified of rock crawlers could even stand a chance against, but there is a good mix of medium to advanced trails as well. There are a few novice level areas, and a few man-made obstacles and mud trenches in a field too.

Looks like you had a great day! Congratulations!

Hopefully it did some good!
My new avatar shows a bit of what we accomplished.
Here, I was teetering. On the driver's side, there was a flat, blade-like rock sticking out threatening to cut into my door like a tin can.. Every move I made caused me to slide ever closer to it. At the closest, I could reach out the window and touch it! I was eventually able to back up and take the right-most line around. WHEW!
Then, for the big pucker moment of the day! My buddy almost stepped on this guy when he got out to spot me up a rocky hill. He must have been right in the middle of the trail as my buddy passed over him and was about 2 feet behind the jeep when he got out to walk back.
My buddy got on the radio and said "I'm back in the jeep... there's a big rattle snake up here, just follow my tire marks up the hill and you'll be good". lol
Mr. No-shoulders went his way... we went ours.

With the amount of sacrificing that my friends and I did this past weekend everyone's Jeep should be delivered and I should have a new one on the way.
