Talking PoorBoys Memorial Wknd 2008 at Rausch Creek

Got a few pics from our trip to Rausch Creek last weekend. Had a great time with minimal breakage. Ran a lot of hard stuff on Saturday. Really enjoyed the new camping, comp playground, parking at Rausch Creek...they've come a long way.


On the way up 81:



The camping/parking area:









I think this was Friday morning on trail 21:

Friday we had a grenaded axleshaft in the JK that we got changed out on the trail, and my trackbar kinked and pitman arm bent. I was able to limp it back to camp where we took the BFH to the pitman arm, and the winch and some angle iron to the track bar to get me back on the trail Saturday. 18V angle grinders and ready welders are the shit...



Saturday morning we headed over to CV trail, Donny hit the left side first and put in work:









I went right and kept binding up under the big rock front-driverside...we'd unlock the hub to save the shaft, I'd wiggle out in 3wd, but kept sliding back over. Eventually pulled winch after doing that 6 or 7 times...

Billy hit it next and made it look easy:







Donny on the exit at the top:



We hit the trail 5 hillclimb next and played there for a bit:

Eventually we made our way down CV some more and hit some pretty sick stuff I'd never seen before. Donny walked it first, but I don't have any pics... I hit it second, got caught up in the middle a bit, but then popped out the top:









Billy walked it next:

We headed back over to the S trail to take on a new Quarry trail they told us about at the front office, we were told nobody had made it without winching, so we had to give it a try. Pictures don't do this one justice, but it's a steep - off camber climb into a 10-12' wide ditch full of rocks. Then you drop off into a flat and have to climb back out the other side. This was one of the funnest trails of the weekend.

The climb in:

Lastly, a couple comp area pics. The traction on the concrete is crazy.

Looks like a great time! They have really come a long way since even a few years ago! I just hope this park stays since they are making great progress and have something for everyone! Are you going to be at the comp on June 14th at all?

In post #5, that is O Trail. It was made about a year ago. The climb you guys went up is the original line, but I've gone to the left where everyone is standing in those pics along that big ledge.

Cool pics, looks like you guys had fun.

Right, right...I couldn't remember, thanks. We saw the line on the left, and talked about it looking technical-left vs throttle-right, so we all went right. Definitely like to try the left side next time.

Also like to try that v-notch to the left at the top of the CV trail red section next time. That looks real fun.

Yeah that V-notch to the left at the top is really fun! You can get all kinds of twisted up in there, especially at the entrance.

That climb out of the quarry is a bitch when its wet or covered in snow. I made it all but up a few times then slide right back down off that slab in the middle. It looks dug out alot compared to what it was then.


Cool pics for sure

The big V-notch at the top/middle of the CV trail is called The Crack. It's hell on the rear tub. lol

Is that Billy's YJ that had the claws on it in Tellico last year?

Picked it up stock last summer and did the cage, seats and boatsides right away. Did the rest over the winter, have a bit left to do, but this was the first outing. It's got 4cyl, ax5, twin stick 300, trussed and shaved toyotas, 3link/4link, 14" swayaways, 37KM2s, tmax 6500, homemade fuel cell. A budget build for sure, but I was really happy with how it worked.
