When I finally got the bike rolling, I had no intention of stopping until I was on top of the hill. I fully expected to get hung up in the vines but luckily I had enough momentum to break through them.
We were both pooped.. That thing was STUCK all three times.. our size gave us an advantage, but a winch would have been Ideal. When I saw DQ lay down in the shade, I still had to walk over and try to sneak the other bike around. Thankfully I was able to get around most of it, but still pushing the Husky from the side working the throttle and clutch. When the back tire hit hard ground, I jumped on to try to conquer the last 400 feet of steep climb.-- Side hilling, because it was too steep to go straight up. But I would try it again in a minute..

First video of beginning my ride to my riding area. Just a nice jump in it is all. This is from several days ago, got more videos to get on here but one needs editing because I left the cam on while taking a leak

Stream sound is intoxicating for sure. The shore power cord has one of those nema ends I think that's what it's called. Long story short it didn't make a good connection when I first plugged it in to the camps power. AC popped off first which I thought was campground breaker. Nope the power cord nema end had started melt. I caught it in time and next morning sourced a new one for $35 bucks. Everyone in this part of the world is so helpful really was taken back by that.

We are good now no more issues.
