Verdant Vale(Uphill) Grade
3rd March 2013
The day started off late with two members form TTORC being shane and myself.
We met up with 5 other off roaders , collin and Kervyn (both with 1.6 vitara
turboed suzukis), Cindy and Blacks (both with swift GTI powered samurais)
We entered V V from by the cocoa house and it was uneventful until the river
crossing that leads to a steep uphill that makes a sharp right. The same
area where uncle gauf had problems going up and where my cooler and tools
went flying out last year. Collin broke his front drive shaft cross and had
to winch up. This was replaced. Blacks also broke his front axle and had to
winch most of the uphills.
Shane did well and did not have to winch the entire trail. He also did not
turnover like last time and have his sandwiches go pelting on da ground. I
now know why he was eating them out real fast as soon as we entered the
As for Monster duck there was no repeat of January's mishap and we did not
have to winch and made it out in one piece.
At the end of the trail TTORC parted ways. Shane, Amar, Ralph, and myself
then had some beers on my front lawn about 5.30pm.
It was a great day!!!
