Here is our camp the next morning before heading out. You can see the red Jeep in the background.
Here I am driving up was is affectionately known as "Titanic". It is that steep for about 100 yards, plus roots and rocks all over. If you think the camera is tilted, think again. That is the trail we are driving up. CRAZY!! If you dont beleive me, look at the trees, particularly the one above the hood.
So it you are wondering why he took that thing so fast, we were wondering the same thing. He was riding his brakes really hard at the start, as you can see why. As we got close to the drop he was thinking, "What did I do? Why didn't I look at that first?" But it was too late. Then because he was riding the brakes so hard he was sliding, but did not want to do that. So he let off for just a second and when going back to the brakes ally hit the gas with his extra wide boots. Hence, the loud revving noises and the accelerating through the turn. Dont get me wrong, the man knows what he is doing. He has even built his own off-road vehicle from scratch (The Berry Bug). He has been off-roading his whole life. I could not believe what happened. Hence I am busting a gut at the end, and Landon looks back scared for his life. If you did not get any of that watching the first time, turn the volume way up and watch it again.
This is our one and only dirtbike picture, just at camp. All I will say is that we went down the same stuff on the bikes as we did the Jeep. CRAZY. Its a long story, but somehow I landed on a felled tree about 3 1/2 feet off the ground. CRAZY.
Overall the trip was AMAZING. I may never get to do something like that again, at least not for two whole days without any kids or obligations, just ride ride ride, laugh laugh laugh, ride ride ride. Thanks Dad and Landon for showing me a good time. Thanks Mom and Tiff for watching Owen while we were gone. THANK YOU TELISHA, for letting me go and treating me so well. I love you tons and cant wait to figure out a way to pay you back for this incredible gift.
