We meet up at the Slab around 11 am on Saturday December 8th, 2007. It was great to see so many Eastern Washington Off Road members come out.
We started off with a group photo but did not get everyone. A few more joined us during the day.
We headed on out and did not make it to far before Bobsracing broke his T-case in his K5 Blazer. He parked it and rode in another K5.
We first hit Flex Canyon. A few rigs in the group followed the Tweety Jeep through. BenW making Flex Canyon look easy. Lil sami came close to flopping over backwards climbing the wall. His hitch saved him.
Next we headed over to Power Pole Canyon. Two rigs didn’t make it that far. Blackdog’s Ranger broke a front hub and this Blazer (I can remember his name) got stuck. Fraidenburg winched Blackdog up the hill. Blackdog took his rig out to the parking area and then rode with BenW. Scumby winched the Blazer out.
Next we hit some of the climbs in the middle of the ORV area and then went on over to Roll Over Hill.
BenW wanted to climb the hard part of Roll Over Hill. I pointed where it was. BenW climbed the hill on a hard line but not the one I meant. I told him that was the wrong line. You should have seen the look on Blackdogs face. BenW then said show were it is because he wanted drive up it. The look on Blackdog’s face then was of someone getting the extra pucker factor. I drove over and show BenW where the line was. He climbed it and made it look easy until the top. His rig was searching for traction and did top the hill after a little hoping. I am not sure how Blackdog was doing.
No one else wanted to climb Roll Over Hill. We drove over to the next canyon and did those hill climbs. It got pretty cold quick so we headed on home.
This was a fun little run thanks to all that came out. I hope to see more of you come out for the Slab ORV Meet & Greet on February 16th, 2008.
