The hardest part in writing these trail reports is a good starting sentence. As promised, my trail recap from this weekend.

Thursday morning I had most of my gear packed and ready for Big Dogs Main Jambo. After a few last minute tasks I was on my way around 11am to Gore, VA for a great weekend of trail riding. The truck did well towing the Jeep, I had a brake controller malfunction and did not have any trailer brakes for a portion of the trip. The truck is in need of a tuner to help pull the steeper grades.

I arrived at the Cove Campground around 2:30pm and started to get camp setup. I was expecting my friend Will and his wife Steph along with my buddy Brad to get there later that evening. Cell service is almost non existent but I was able to get in contact with Brad and he would be there early tomorrow morning due to a heavy rain storm near his home in Annapolis. Later that night I had gotten a call from Steph that their RV had broken down (CPS) a few miles from the Cove. I had spent most of my afternoon with my buddy Sailor Jerry :cheers2: but would gladly let them borrow my truck if they wanted to come and pick me up. A local ended up using his backhoe to pull the RV off the road and they would fix it in the morning.

On Friday morning I met Will and Steph at their camp and we decided to hit the trails. Brad was running late and would be at camp around noon. Will took lead and brought us over to Trickle and Wahoo. Both of these trails follow a creek bed, they are not difficult but a good trail to start the weekend. After quickly navigating both, we decided to head back to camp and check for Brad. We did stop at the staging area for some flex shots though. :laugh:

We found Brad back at camp and decided to run a few more trails before the sun started to set. We ran Boulder and Death Valley where I took over as trail guide. More difficult than the previous mentioned trails but nothing extreme. (I will add pics when they are available.) We made our way back to camp for burgers and brats before stopping by the Camp 6 mudpit. No one made it through the pit, but the guy who won the bounty money hit the pit sideways foot to floor v8 screaming rock bouncer style and destroyed his front D60. The recovery rig almost rolled it over but hit the throttle at the last second and saved it. It was awesome. Eugene Rose called it the "Hillbilly Condom" as it was wrapped in saran wrap. :rofl:

On Saturday I continued to be our trail guide and wanted to start the day with Pennsyltucky. I had ran the trail last year and I knew it would take a few hours to complete. A group of about 15 rigs were already ahead of us so I made the decision to run a few different trails instead. I led us over to Cobra, a rocky uphill trail that eventually brought us onto Corum. I smashed my cowl on Corum at Spring Fling, so it was nice getting revenge and running it without trouble. We circled back around to the top of Cobra and then crossed back over Corum to shortcut to the Mine Spring trail (access road.) We then followed Mine Spring to Sissy and up Nasty. We had lunch at Camp 8 (small clearing at the top of the mountain) and took Timber back to camp. From there our group went down Berkeley Springs and stopped at V trail, but Will and Steph needed to leave to go to the Brantley Gilbert concert in Frederick. We headed back to camp to relax before the Saturday night celebration at the staging area.

I decided to go and explore while Brad chilled back at camp. I visited one of the overlooks that I have never been to and ended up meeting a club buddy while driving around. This was his first Big Dogs event and it wasn't off to the best start. I decided to show Ray around and led him up to a different overlook. We took Berkeley Springs towards V trail and cruised it without trouble. Another trail I got my revenge on! (Fall Crawl 2013 / ARB Locker) The Saturday night celebration was a good time, a Samurai buggy on 54s got stuck on the rock pile. That was an interesting recovery.

On Sunday I met Will and Ray for a few trails before we packed up and headed home. Will took lead and brought us over to Pennsyltucky. There was no one ahead of us this time so we committed to the trail. We ran the trail without any issue, alot quicker than last time as well. Ray made his way back to camp and Will and I continued on. We had noted a new trail near Nasty yesterday, so we made our way there. It was a fun rock trail that went up and down the side of a hill, Will ended up smashing his finger very badly though. After finishing the trail we packed up camp and had Sonic before heading our separate ways. See you at Icebreakers.
