Headed out last Sunday , to catch up with the guys running Fuct..I wanted to get out and test my new to me GoPro Hero3+ [36] I ended up finding them and we went and ran Grotto a couple times and a new trail I named "Grandmas Cottage". Was a wicked day with a solid group of wheelers, that ended with a gnarly trail and a rollover :whistle: made for a lonnnnng night , glad we all made it out okay !

The go pro worked out well..still need to fine tune it and not use the wifi as it drains the battery. It died pretty quick :whistle:

Anyways heres the vids and pics I got [cheers]...The last trail was a winch fest in some parts..some deep stinky mud holes and tight trees, there is alot more gnarly trail than whats on the tape, but Rons a union worker so he didnt believe in photographing on his day off :dontknow:

Well he clipped the stump after hitting a large pothole has no rear shocks...lost it

And it remains "Grandmas Cottage" to us...was a fitting name for a run like that

Been trying for years to get to cedar plank from there or cedar plank to somewhere, finally worked our way into the weird trees there and found a way out one day and that's as far as we've gone so far

Love it a LA mode if Ya know what I mean[36]

But really, I did clip the stump, after catching the soft shoulder, the harness bar saved my life. Stopped the windshield from clapsing on me cause the b pillar didn't crumple sideways when It hit. No injuries, already got a line on a rubi and have a synergy rear coil over kit and 12 inch travel coil overs for the new jeep.

Icbc gonna let me have my seats and brand new maxxis treps. Nice start, I'll be back in no time.
