Nice driving @theksmith, Gadget's a beast! I mean that in a good way mind you, I do NOT want to hurt her feelings.  😆

Nice job driving @theksmith and great capture @SonoranWanderer! That obstacle is trickier than it looks on video.

I have always had an issue trying to get video and pictures to show "reality". Trying to pull real texture out of images and video has me stumped.

Here are some select pictures I took while on the run. /bad pun

 

Break time after the recently plowed part of the trail. (Plowed for fire access?)

I didn't mean it as a critique of your video, obstacles never look as gnarly on film as in person, at least in my experience.

I didn't take it as a critique. I was agreeing with you and lamenting that what I see is not what I am able to show.
