Elbe is definitely tight at times. I have a few battle scars from Elbe.
In my opinion, Elbe is better when it is dry out, not soupy mud.

I plan on making a run to Evans once the snow is gone.

Elbe isn't that bad you just gotta make a weekend of it. i think I have taken my truck on every trail there some are just way slower than others (little body damage here and there) I also bring my bike to scout the trails first. Not very easy to turn around in a truck if something is blocking the way.

Get a B2 :D...

No seriously, My first "real" time out in my B2, was with Hahns and Totalled on mainline, and all the damage I ended up with, was a plowed in rocker and door, and thats when I had no sliders or bumpers.

There is definately worse things out at elbe though, from what I hear, mainline is fairly timid compared to the rest...

Yea elbe can be crazy at times ! I've seen people go in and come out in pieces
and I even seen a guy come out with his whole rear diff ripped out of his rig so
if your not shure of it stay away unless you have a guide is all I can say about it
but the easyier trails are ok tho. Just my 2 cents.
