From what little I experienced with it, the cement made it harder not easier.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
That concrete was grippy. I kinda liked it.

Maybe @85_Ranger4x4 can show @ericbphoto how to upload photos to google drive so I can get a copy there instead of him sending them snail mail.

I was really hoping someone had video of TRS-2 climbing.

If that works good for you, I can do it.

This was a fun playground. Might have onboard video later.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

You did much better the first time you went through.... and everyone did better than the guy who went right before Jim.

The patch I hit was just a big glob at like the worst possible place to put it. I kinda wonder if they tried to fill a hole and the soil eroded around it.























Amanda has that video on her phone, I haven't got there yet.

Got the camera card unloaded. Between that and the phone, I have over 150 pix to sort through. Here's a taste.

I met up with 85 Ranger and his family for my trip across Illinois on Friday. Baby Yoda kept an eye on me all the way.

If you can't tell, Jim was always up to something...











Cool 2.3T truck, I guess he bought it from someone on the site.















Amanda wanted to go back and check on how little guy was doing so I had the lunch of champions in a room with a view

@85_Ranger4x4 @ericbphoto

If you're able to upload the original file sizes to google drive then that would be awesome. It would allow me to download them for use on the site and videos in the size I need without losing quality.
