The purpose of this challenge is to make your way though a set course, making your way from one GPS coordinate to another. At each GPS coordinate location, you will receive the next coordinate.

If you are new to this type of challenge, please practice entering coordinates such as N49 05.092 W122 00.641 into your GPS and using the seek function to make your way to them. www.geocaching.com is an excellent site for doing a similar sort of challenge.

A quick call on the VHF and I was on route from town with a ball joint kit and the tool/press was just a phone call and 10 minute drive away from the trail head.

I dunno though. Been wheeling on that mountain for years and never seen that kind of carnage before... the trails are not that hard. Its just a maze up there. I have quite a list from my participants... i am glad hey all signed the waiver :)

Everyone came away with a big grin in their faces, all good.
