Re: Crozet Open Wheeling Weekend
We enjoyed some great weather for wheeling this past weekend, with temps in the upper 80's low 90's both days, it was on the warm side, but staying in the shade on the trails made it pretty bearable.
Day one saw a smaller turn out than most Saturdays, but still not too bad, I started off leading a blue group up Pastoral and around the usual blue circuit, with some side trips to play on close by obstacles.
In between Pastoral and The Tool, we stopped to watch the Black group play on Endo Alley, and Matt from our group joined them there as well.
After the tool, we ran back to the field for a quick bite, then headed back out to do some higher blues in the afternoon, we hit Heckler's, ran the stream down, and a few other obstacles. Noboody in our group suffereed any major damage, and everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves.
Sunday was an extremely small turnout, just Rich and Me in the Waggy, Phillip and Krystal (Hope I used the right spelling on those!) in the Toyota with the hole in the Hood, and Rob in his JK Rubicon.
With this small and capable group, we were all ready for challenges.. We started off going up the stream and taking the tough lines where available.
Everyone handled everything we tackled pretty well, and everyone suffered a little. On the trail up beside the slippery slab down, Rob lost his passenger side Door surround to a tree, and right before we ended the day on Heckler's, Phillip noticed his drain plug on his front Diff had worked loose, and he couldn't tell how much gear oil he'd lost. It was about this same time while he was at the bottom that we noticed a fairly large puddle of oil under my rear diff at the top of Heckler's, I pounded my cover, which now had a big gap at the bottom, back into place, but I too didn't know how much oil I had lost either. It was about 1:00pm anyway, so we all packed it in and headed back to the field. Everyone was able to get their rigs back under their own power, so another successful weekend of wheeling was completed!
