Wife and I took the Rubicon and one of the bikes to Rush Offroad for labor day weekend. It was a gr... Ahh... Who cares?
There was a BUNCH of people there:
We camped in the farthest corner we could get our trailer/bed (some people's Jeep is a trailer queen... Ours just TOWS a trailer
View from the campsite was nice. Being next to the trail we had a LOT of traffic until 3 in the morning or so but we weren't there to sleep anyway and it was kind cool to see the HUGE variety of rigs from Tim-Camron-eque buggies to 6 year olds on pit bikes we saw a little bit of EVERYTHING. Also cool to see who came back at the end of a tow line and who didn't
Finally some JEEP action! Wife was in the Jeep pretty much the whole time.. Her bike cylinder is out getting replated and my bike is a little tall for her. Just as well... I swear she's better at picking a line than I am. I've spending too much time on the bike... Got rusty with full sized vehicles:
The longest/most scenic trail in the park is called "powerline" (although there are not actual powerlines over this portion obviously). Its basically one long series of climbs and descents... Many 1000ft+. They range from mild to wild with most having multiple lines of varying difficulty as well as bypasses. In some cases even the easiest bypass requires lockers and a bit of skinny pedal. Some of the hard lines are rockbouncer only... And even then its a MAYBE.
Victory! Well... Still a few miles to go but we're at the top of this one anyway:
"Ford" made his feelings about the dirt bike known at every opportunity:
Hmm... That one is a NO from me:
Lots of SxSs driving around... Which is only unusual because normally you only see them parked drinking beer at various spots. So much so that the wife and I joked that a SxS trip consists of arrive, unload, quickly teleport to a random spot in the woods, drink beer. Not so this time:
This rock is about to be no match for my Tractor Supply ball hitch:
This is the life!
Heading toward the far end of the trail and the really wild climbs:
More to follow...
