View Full Version : The First (Annual ??) Can Opener Challenge

That's right folks. The first, maybe annual, Can Opener Challenge is comming to a mountain near you.

Kevin has put out a challenge to anyone brave enough to attempt the Can Opener (upper section) without backing up, winching, or rock stacking.

The bet; his 6 beer to my 1 (cold)

So far I am the only one brave (aka dumb) enough to accept the challenge, but am anticipating more participation.

When: Next Sunday the 13, weather permitting. It should be a nice day so we can hang out after and drink my 6 beer and maybe have a Q.

Come one, come all. Everyone is invited to accept the challenge (depending on how many beer Kev has) or just come out and watch.

Rich.[3]

you cant bet once you get there. The challenge is that you make it up on your own without help. If you put your truck into reverse it's game over and I will only take the first three challengers.

GAME ON!!!!!!!

I have driven up this trail once and made it look easy other times it's really tough. I'm only betting the most I'll loose but I think I'm pretty safe. the best tasting beer is won beer!!!

hmm... I would say no problem if it were dry but shit, when its wet it is definatley a challenege especially that first damn rock the left.. no sure why but it likes to piss me off

ROCKDONKEY
03-05-2004, 10:22 AM
should be a good spin fest , he who uses the right-foot the most may have the luck. But i might still be confused , are you talking about the wall on the right just before you go into the mud and trees to exit the trail?

Someone else has to volunteer. It's only a beer and just think; if 3 people volunteer, Kevin will have to bring at least 18 beer to cover the bet, plus whatever he wants to drink. So, even if we loose, we can get Kev drunk and he'll give us beer anyways !!!!:D

Ps. Sorry bout the screw up on the date.[1b] It is the 14th.

Should be a good day!! I'm sure a few people will drive up it even though they're not betting. By the time we get there and set up the Q there will only be enough time for about 4-5 trucks to run it.

If we leave Bruce's at 9:30, we should be at that little school on the corner no later than 10:00. If we're not there follow that road to the gravel and we should be there airing down for a while.....
