    Race at 11,200 feet. Who makes it to the top first?

    Results posted when trip is over.

    TRIP IS OVER; STORY POSTED
    September 20, 2019.

    ...Eventually, we found ourselves at the top of Cottonwood Peak. -ish. There are a couple caveats here worth mentioning. First, no road actually went to the top. Second, even the highest point of the road wasn't technically the top of the peak - it skirted along the southwest side by a few hundred feet - both horizontally and vertically.

    And that was just fine with Brett - more than fine in fact! He jumped out of his truck and immediately challenged Monte to a race to the top. Of course, Monte being only slightly competitive meant that we really had to twist his arm to get him to accept the challenge.

    Right. And on the count of three, they were off.

    Find out who wins in Redhead Down #5: The Race

    Squeaky is in brown.
    Backdawg in white.

    Is anyone supercharged? I know Monte has one but also has a couple other Tacomas

    LOL never mind, didn't see the photo at first. Thought we were talking about a truck race

    My money is on Squeaky, but history shows that 10 feet from the top he will break something.

    Kidding, he lives at elevation, so he has the advantage.

    Given the lack of updates on this thread since it was posted, I'd say it doesn't bode well for anyone involved

    Or they're still trying to make it to the top

    Must be no service at the top.

    In reality, I would guess that the results will be released when Turbo releases the blog post on his website, https://adventuretaco.com

    I was going to post the results when I got home from the trip, but I like this idea better!

    The poll results are awesome. ;)

    And remember, we're all winners as long as we try our hardest.
