This was a comp right? Someone has to win and someone has to loose. So what if jason won, he deserved it. I think as far as driving, jason did the best job. Fishmaxx, and Xtreme did a hella job driving too! but.....i got beat by a shafty!!! and im not complaning, CSR wooooped me like a lil' kid(lol) That damn hole screwed me too!!! I think i made a few newbie miss-happs. But I liked all the gates. If it wasent hard it wasent fun. I diddnt see anyone driving over the eazy stuff after the comp. I switched tires and killed those too big ol' rocks and i did it before anybody stacked rocks under it bottom line is........IT WAS A COMP!!! IT HAS GOT TO BE HARD. I had a great time and cant wait to crawl with you guys again!!! Highmark you did a awsome job!!!! i gotta remember to bring sun screen next time!

Yeah, the line you took after the comp over that section was nuts. I never thought about taking the gate marker penalty and going for it up the big rock face on the left.

GR is an awesome place. I hope the next time the river is down...there's tons of cool obstacles under water right now.

Dude, don't be like that. Everyone appreciated the work you put into it, and I think everyone had a good time.

You can't please everyone ALL the time. Don't let a little criticisem get you down like that.

Doing what you did, putting together the comp, is what's growing this sport so fast.

There could have been some improvements...... But there ALWAYS can be room for improvements....that will never end.


So chin up lil' buckeroo

I agree with Heavy Highmark. Yes.......there were a handful of folks that didn't think too kindly of the one obstacle on the first course of the day. Perhaps a few trucks cleared it but the majority either pointed out and broke trying, or by-passed it. No big deal, as stated elsewhere ya can't please everyone. I do agree this IS a competition and if all the trucks could clear everything it wouldn't be much of a challenge other than from a points standing. I for one can say you take the cake for making all this go smoothly. Months, weeks and days before the event your keeping everyone updated here on the board was perfect. Letting us know how the river was doing, etc is what was needed for the long haulers to see if it was worth a trip down. Don't bail on us due to our voicing our opinion.........it is what makes these gatherings better and flow easier each time. Your staying focused on keeping track of points was good from what I saw/understood. The second course, I also liked that you told people when they got a reverse penalty, sure helped me .
We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Making the little 4 hour trip from St.Louis was well worth it. Meeting everyone we could was awesome and hope we can make it to the next event that is close to us. Was a little peeved about our truck that I put SO much time into, how it faired. Then when I think about it, figure it was the first REAL rock running it had and it was pretty impressive...........for me at least. Was good for me because me truck shall now be improved.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Highmark and I tried to be organized. We were thrown a few curve balls that got us both rattled. The river was up, and our score sheets were missing in action. We had a large number of drivers with most never competing before which added to the confusion.

Hindsight is 20/20, so YES we should have had a drivers meeting! I think we were too obsessed with trying to get the event started so we could get two runs in. Sorry about that! I donít think a group of crawlerís this big has ever been put together!

Highmark was a little tight on the scoring of the first course, but I think he judged everyone the same. Thatís all you can really ask of a judge! The next one I am a part of we will have a Judge and a Scorekeeper! Believe it or not its hard to do both at the same time!

As far as course design I think the goal should be about 50/50 on the more difficult obstacles. Half make it Half donít Each course should have at least one of those! Obstacles can be made easy to drive over, but difficult to get between the gates! If you are sloppy you hit Gate Makers thatís were the challenge can be. Competitions that large have to have some flow or else people get bored.

If it werenít for the drive I would be back this weekend! Whipping some more shafty butt!

highmark, it would be a sad day if you eventually get out of crawling. it's been great having you as a fellow member and it would be a loss. i hope you stay in it.

putting on comps is work, especially if you get slammed with allot of competitors and your not prepared. I know how you feel highmark. I've found that if you have allot of drivers, it's allot less work if you have 3 people helping you out full time. The staff needs to know the rules and how the comp will run.

To keep the comp running smooth and get drivers through the course quickly:

Make sure whoever is up next knows it before the previous driver finishes. we tell the next driver he's next when the previous guy is starting the stage. we also determine a good point on the stage (usually half way) when the next guy can start, so there are two people on the coarse at one time.

we always make sure the courses are setup before we need them. setup just before the comp, or setup before the previous stage has been completed by all. also, we try to setup the first stage so it's fairly easy, the second stage intermediate, and the last stage difficult. this way everyone can get through the first stage and have fun and so on.

good score sheets and a way to organize them is important too! anyway, i feel your pain highmark, i know it can make you dislike the events. and sometimes crawling for fun is that, more fun than comps. but people have a tendency to make sure they make it to comps. if it's a get together, it's optional to them, and you don't get as many people. anyway, the comps are allot more fun when you have more people helping so you can take a break. take it easy man.

Running comps is tough. I know all the bitching I've seen at comps makes me leary of running one.

I've come to the conclusion that when I or Griz and I run one this summer, I will of course listen to the griping but will try not to sway.


It seems about 5% of the people always ruin it for the rest (life in general) and people in charge tend to listen to those people because they are the loudest.

What I'm trying to say is don't let the 5% get you down cause the other 95% had a blast and really appreciate the effort!


The last Moab course people bitched that the 1st course was too tough then the organizers let the competitors lay out the 2nd course and people bitched cause it was too easy!

Errrrrrrr, nice pics. Wondering, did anybody happen to get any pics of my truck running either of the courses? I goofed and didn't do any poser shots while we were there. On the way home, somewhere in Indiana........my Dad was like "MAN, you should have showed me how to use your camera". Ack. Lemme know. If not, no biggie.

Gee, thanks Jason.........and you're supposed to be the big fancy magazine photographer. Would prefer a picture of the truck running the course. However I do appreciate your documenting the carnage. Got a picture for you too:
