innocent enough. A small connecting stream between the upper wooded area and the
creek. The first 5 vehicles through the dip and over the logs had no problem.
But as every vehicle drove through and up the other side the embankment got slicker and
slicker. This in turn forced the later rigs to have to apply some horses to get
through. That only made it worse. Eventually we were looking at a 35 inch hole
and some very soft, goopy mud. The logs we threw in were swallowed up and actually
just got in the way, threatening to jam into a wheel or hold back an otherwise valiant
attempt at powering through the muck. Eventually everyone made it though, most with
some assistance. Some used a well placed log, a good approach and some plain, simply
petal to the metal to get through. It was one of the highlight events on the trail
runs for the day. Everyone was having a great time watching one vehicle after
another do their best.
