Paul did indeed get stuck three times. May be the pilot not the rig that is the problem.

Wide Gertrude is a little wider and has less grippy tires but your just better at choosing the prefect line. That Harley rig is indeed a nice looking outfit and can handle the trails just fine from the looks of things.

It was fun times. Next years ride will be at about the same time and I think it would be totally fantastic if there were a few more hacks, oh and they love to give away door prizes!

By the way I am Paul and I have a hack that likes to get dirty.

It was a fun ride for sure. I think the best moment of insanity was when the German decided to log a little. I thought my monkey was going dive out of the car to avoid wood splinters. Why either of the ladies consent to being passengers is beyond comprehension.

On the way back home some dude was looking at the cow dung and wood mixture on the struts and asked what it was all about. It is rather hard to explain.

Never did get to use the winch, maybe next year!
