    My Tellico connection dropped in last night with a ton of video and pics, scanned a few in for you all to check out. I'm putting together a streaming clip from the video. I'll post it a little later.

    I have passed the second one on the trail before. They are pretty cool. Some of those things are spotless. A guy in our club has one on 44's.

    That Tacoma hybrid had a 454. I like the work on it, reminds me of those icelanders rigs trying to climb vertical cliffs!

    Mad Max doesn't have anything on these guys. The one with the 454 would be fun to play with I bet

    I'd love to do this too, but wont, so you better take pics!

    Butch - wait until you see the video of these guys hitting the trail, its great. What cracks me up are the VW dune buggy's trying to get up the trail... /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif

    Have you ever hear the phrase "Good initiative, bad judgement"? We had one of those VW guys trying to be helpfull after a friend in a K10 w/ a broke front axle got high centered. Hooked up a strap and tried to pull him off. There was dirt flying & bug was bouncing all over the place, the truck didn't move an inch.

    I guess those buggy's can make it up tellico but how frustrating it must be. The have to spin the tires on a rock untill the tire gets so sticky it finally pulls the buggy over... but thats like every 4 feet. I hear it takes a complete day to make it through, dawn to dusk.
