    This past weekend in NE OK. Had a great time even though I tore up my tranny. Here are a few pics. I have vid too if I can figure out how to post it so you guys can get to it. These first ones are just a little playing in the mud at the start of the day before the competitions started.

    These are what they call "The Money Pit" because in their words "YOU WILL BREAK YOUR STUFF!" Guess what they were right! :doah:

    The body damage is doesn't really bother me, but shortly after the body damage the tail-housing of my tranny snapped in half while trying to get out of the spot I was in.

    Yeah that hole was pretty deep. It was just about all he could do to keep is head above water.

    That money pit looks harder than the ones I've been to around here.

    After watching some of the other people I knew I would have to hit it hard and figured I would tear something up. Maybe a few more dents maybe a front axle (i just had my brother replace one the day before) but I had no idea my transmission would break in half. Oh well nothing I can do now but find a replacement and go at it again. Can't let the pit get the best of me ya know!

    Here is a link to their website. There is a map on there of the exact location. It is in extreme NE OK just SW of Seneca, MO.

    http://www.dday4x4.com/

    They had one of these events in the spring as well. The pictures on the site are from the spring event. They are open the last weekend of every month for anybody to come and ride the trails, play in the mud, or do whatever else you want to do.
