I'd say it's about time for an update, so here it is...Episode 3 - I'm going to call it..."Geez. We need to workout!"

The S-22 obstacle course is no joke people! :eek: The pictures that have been posted do the obstacles little justice, but...if you've ever met me, you know that I'm game to tackle anything. :D

First order of business was to do some wrench practice! Let me tell you (and my co-driver - Melissa, will agree wholeheartedly) that tires, a-arms, axles, etc...heavier than they may look. Let me also tell you that we are some bada$$ wrenching gals - we've got several axles changed under our belts, along with tires, drivebelts, a-arms, tierod ends, balljoints - you name it, we can do it. Feel free to bring your RZRs by for some service with a smile. :)

Alrighty, on to what you've all been waiting for (drum roll please!) --- rock training!

With a new winch, fuel in the RZR and carne asada in our tummies courtesy of CiscoKid (shout out to Cisco!), we were ready to slay some rocks! We practice crawling over rocks, driving over logs, winching over tires, launching the car over concrete pipes - if it was in the way, we got over it. :cool: Pretty awesome getting through obstacles that larger vehicles have problems navigating across. Go UTVs!

Can't wait to do some more practicing! Stay tuned...

Real rock practice time folks, not those "fake" rocks they've got at S-22. Hehe. So, here it is - Episode 4, Entitled "Rocks? What rocks?"

As anyone who has done any rock crawling can attest to, rocks can be pesky little buggers or large buggers depending.

Here's what goes through your head (or, at least, mine) as you roll up to a pile - "Cool! Gnarly rocks! This looks easy peasy, just take this line, followed by that line, then that one and that one there. Hmmm...what about that giant rock in the way? Oh, nevermind...totally do-able, just floor it or maybe winch? Let's see...I can roll the passenger tires on top of those rocks there, slide the driver's side tires across that rock over there. Avoid that pointy rock. Keep some tires on the ground, eh? Rinse and repeat. Cinch." :)

From Turkey Claw to Elvis to Martel to ______hammer to...the rocks just flew by. Actually, I think that was me flying by. There's nothing like the feeling of seeing something gnarly, something that you'd have to be a little crazy to attempt and conquering it. King of the Hammers? Bring it!

Speedy.

p.s. Thank you to all of the Peanut Gallery for hanging tight during the crawling in the snow ;) - Nothing like watching some crawling with snacks, sandwiches and beers by the warmth of a makeshift fire, eh?

p.p.s. Promise to make you all proud in the Hammers! Lots of love!
