    I hate to say it, but Colebatch has been toppled from the raw balls he-man pinnacle of ride reporting. This RR featured some of the most daunting terrain I've ever seen.

    Well done.

    In the 4 wheeler audience, this report is viral. My nephew sent this to me a long time ago, he is a total jeep guy. I have yet to read a report as comparable.

    Totally different league, but then this report is in a league of it's own.

    this ride report was inspiration for my own adventures there, thanks for taking the time to write it all up
