Jack Hammer (12/20/2020)
We ran Jack on Saturday 12-19-2020. The trip was amazing, the trail is hard and was a blast! We started at the bottom by the Jack / Sledge sign and did not skip anything. None of us made it up the V Notch waterfall but not for a lack of trying, I pushed it as hard as I felt it was safe without breaking an axle, The climb for the rear tires is ridiculous on that, tried multiple approach angles but no matter what just had to push too hard against it. Ed skipped it all together after none of us made it, but he has already broken an axle on that one before! I believe Ed is the only one that made it up the left turn waterfall without winching, he made it look easy! We made it most of the way up it in the four doors just needed a little tug to get over the undercut and dugout! Overall I felt pretty good, I thought my jeep did well being a four door and completed the trail while only winching twice!
Wrecking Ball (11/22/2020)
11-21-2020 Wrecking Ball Trail, Johnson Valley We had a great run, took a group of six full body jeeps with experienced drivers up Wrecking Ball today! this is the first time we have run this trail, but these guys have no fear. Not knowing what lie ahead just added to the excitement, a new challenge around every turn leading up to the big waterfall at the top of the trail. We spent about six hours, took every Hard Line and did not bypass anything! All six rigs made it up the Big Waterfall at the top with no winching or any help! As Joe Verastegui said "this is a BEAST of a trail". I am very fortunate to have such a great company of friends that are crazy and willing to do this extreme off roading. I had so much fun on this trail I went back on 12-12-2020 with two jeeps and ran it again, this time in just under three hours!
