Head up the hills to meet up with Jason (DOT), Eric (CoTacoTRD) and Matt (mreimann) to run Red Elephant Hill>Mill Creek>Bill Moore Lake. Unfortunately we came across a delay at an obstacle on Red Elephant Hill so we had to scratch the Mill Creek portion, but still had a great time and enjoyed a great early fall weekend with the crew...
beginning of REH
there were some fun obstacles that weren't real difficult but were fun none the less that unfortunately i did not get any pics of...next time i will make sure to document the early section more..
on the the part that gave Eric some trouble...
these were taken after an hour or two of stacking rocks and inching Eric back onto the trail and up the rocks
Eric ended up 4-5 feet to the left of Jason (silver taco) under the trees closest the camera about to slide off the trail...the ground was completely loose and traction was hard to come by...so we had to back him onto stacked rocks in order to stack rocks infront of the tires for traction...we did this countless times to inch him back onto the trail...we used a strap on his rear bumper anchored to Jason's front bumper to help keep his ass from falling down further..this also helped to kick his ass back on the trail once he was able to get forward momentum..got him back on and running without any damage and lessons learned (BUY A WINCH! haha)
more of the obstacle past the slide off
Matt on the rock that kicked Eric off the trail
the pit that Eric got sucked into
shit was at a good angle too
the remaining portions of the trail were scenic and fun to drive through
on our way over to Bill Moore Lake
