A few videos

Went back to Tellico with a few friends. We had a great group with about 7-8 rigs. It was the Tellico I remember from years ago. The last few times I've been it's been dryer than a popcorn fart. This time it had rained the night before and things got interesting. Anyway, I'll keep posting up but here's what I got so far.

Nice videos I like to see that a FSJ is wheeling with the little guys.

Good times! Looks slippery.

I like that sideways action!

Upper 2 was nasty last time I went. Did y'all hit it too?

Well, I didn't. At about 2 in the morning some others did I had already headed to the house. We hit Guardrail last about 6 and it had already gotten dark. I have more videos but I need to edit them. The last stand on Guardrail was in the dark and all you can see is my headers glowing under the hood and a screaming 360.

I'll try and get more up as the day goes on. BTW, the blue bronco has competition compound Trepadors and I have standard IROKs. Once I get the Guardrail vids up you'll see how slick it really was.

I've been wheeling it pretty hard as of late. It's a metal top. I stitched it in after a few rides.

Guardrail

Thanks for uploading all those. Guardrail looks tough with that Passenger side undercut.

I have a video of me walking this obstacle at the beginning of October like it was nothing. A little moisture goes a long way there. The leaves and cow crap mud made it a whole new obstacle. We had guys not even attempt it b/c it looked so bad. I've got a few more from there but photobucket likes to take it's sweet time. I'll try and get a couple more up before the end of the day.

I noticed how that narrowed Bronco walked that spot on school bus. That was some good drivin'.

Thanks for sharing.

I got excited and went ahead and got the last one finished. You can't see much but you can hear the 360
