One of these mornings …

Summertime is rock crawling time … and Nampa is rock crawling country.  The North Idaho 4×4 group attends something called “X-Rocks” … extreme rock crawling contests.  Lets go … camp out, get up in the morning, and watch the mayhem.

In the wheat fields ...
In the wheat fields …

It IS summer – it’s hot!  The field we’re in is dry!  There is no breeze.  The earth is soft, and everything naturally sinks down a few inches. But that’s perfect for crawling over rocks.

This is part of the course ...
This is part of the course …

Yup … we’re going to drive over collections of rocks that most of us wouldn’t walk over!

Here's our #1 - Eric.

Hey, this doesn't look so bad ...
Hey, this doesn’t look so bad …

Just follow the instructions from the guy out front … and hopefully he knows what’s going on …

Oops ... roll over ...
Oops … roll over …

Push, pull and get ‘er back up.  There are rocks to climb.

Door looks a little worse for the wear!

Hills to climb ...
Hills to climb …
... paths to blaze ...
… paths to blaze …
... and finishes to finish.
… and finishes to finish.

A dusty summer day indeed.  Summertime, and the livin’ is easy … (or for some, not so easy).

    1. Every kind of 4×4 … from RC’s (and an RC course), and mildly built vehicles on 31’s to a huge all-wheel steer monster (it didn’t do so well – too heavy). Fun.

  1. yep…I would not walk over those rocks either. sometime we have got to go and watch an event like that. it sure looks like a great time. thanks for sharing it with us.

    1. You guys would love this … relaxing on the edge of the course with something cool to sip … Cody sending the RC’s around a track of his own. I’ll keep ya posted on the next one!
