Here is the slide show from what few pictures I was able to take. I have a few shotty videos that I am trying to clean up and put together, but thought you would enjoy this for now:

The course was A LOT more difficult than I thought it would be. Even the entrance was a bear, it was this "winding staircase" where you couldnt make the corner without backing up, and if you backed up too far, you rolled. From there we had massive rain, so big ruts and lots of sliding and mud. The XK had no problems whatsoever and impressed a lot of people. At one point in the course my nose was sticking up in the air right before I took this steep hill, and by the time I got the the bottom the trail split in 3 directions. I couldn't get anyone on the CB so I took the trail I thought they were on, bottomed out the front end and then dragged my rear through the mud. The JK behind me said "Dude, the only thing I saw of your Jeep was the rear tires and undercarriage, you went straight down". From there, either mud got in my fan or something happened and my jeep started shuddering when I idle. It goes away and comes back, I have no idea. It is like the fan is off balance for a period.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites. I will get the video up soon:


60+ Jeeps and 25+ Hummers









This hill was more intense than it looks, the second slide was a huge gradient

They call this course the Jeepeater. I went out with my friend in his CJ but here is a good shot of an H3 taking it:

Here are a couple video from someone on my forum that popped up today. I took the first trail in the XK, but they came across it in the afternoon (right after we had the downpour):

This was the first time I saw "stairway to heaven" looks like fun:

I came across the Jeepeater when I went out with my buddy in his CJ (he works there and is a trail leader).

Thanks for sharing! In the fist vid above I bet the hummer driver has to change his shorts after that near miss...

Not only was this for a good cause but it looks like you had a ton of fun supporting Autism. Is this going to be an annual event? I may just have to schedule it for next year!
