Attica Saturday, 09-03?

After getting Kathy's Aussie in this weekend, all she can think about is getting revenge on the hill at Attica that tried to eat her last fall.
So, we're headed up there Saturday for a little fun and anyone who doesn't have Labor Day plans really ought to join us.
Originally it was going to be Haspin, but with the 3+" of rain we got today, I'm pretty sure Attica would be a much better place to play. And as I said, she has a score to settle.
So far it's just us and Dale, and possibly one or both of his boys. I also think a couple of FatBoys are going to be there too, but I don't know that as fact yet.
This was already discussed in the "WooHoo" thread, but I figured I'd make a new one regarding the trip for those who didn't read the other thread.
Post up if you can join us.
We might stay and wheel Sunday also, if anyone will join us.

Understandable.... but you would have had a swell time Jim. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Seems that little to none of that rain in the past week bothered to fall on Attica. You know that great tire/brake wash puddle that the kids play in behind the office? It was down to a mud puddle about four Jeep lengths long by ten foot wide. The typically large pond down the hill from the office (across the road from the snack bar) was also dried down to a booger pit that even the ATVs seemed to avoid. Heck even the creek was down to a trickle.

Now that is not to say that you couldn't find a few really smelly mud holes to waller in. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

But the place was so dry and there were so few people out there, not even very many ATVs. We went places that normally Jeeps don't go.... Off into the ATV trails in the bottoms where some days a air boat might be better bet than a heavy old Jeep.

Actually got bored running the creek and pulled up and out in different places just to look around.

Circled the quarry a couple of times trying to remember all of the trails and how they were when it was wet out. Would have been a great day to map with a GPS (sorry I don't have one).

Did some of the power line and wondered around just to the north of the main gate. Thanks Joel.... I would likely have never even gone into that area... Thought it was all hard core or ATV trail. There is some easy and fun stuff back in there for everyone (even wet).

OK, OK.... enough of why I had fun...

Sweet Pea's rig has had some mods and that was the point of todays ride. The ole YJ worked wonderful all day (when the four squirrels were not on break, silly squirrels). And then even when the darn squirrels did take an unexpected break Sweet Pea hung in there and drove out (a couple times dead stick).

I didn't get to take any pictures, dead batteries. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

It was a swell day.

I had a blast as always with Dale, Jackson & Daniel. Now those are some good people! I wish the rest of the usuals could have made it. Can't wait to go again.

P.S.
Rio & Patty, I slapped down the hill that tried to kill me! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/owned1.gif[/img] : [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]

I got just a few pictures, for anyone interested.
Several are captured from video, so they a little fuzzy.
