Cougar Buttes - 2017

Good trip! After a morning of various technical challenges at Cougar Buttes and one near flop saved by Bill and his trusty winch, a few of us went tearing across the desert to see some really old graffiti.

Here is a link to some pictures and videos that I took. I will be posting more videos as I get time.

And here is Marc's link.

I never seem to get any pictures or videos of myself for some reason. So please - post em if you got em.

Cougar Buttes video

Here is the DropBox link to the video. I ended up compiling all of them into one video.

Great trip and pictures/videos!! I'm so glad that the run happened because my son and I enjoyed it out there. Did not take to many pictures but I'll post them later.

All I have to say is -

Daaaaaaaaaaannnnnngggg!


I'm really glad you guys had a great time. I'm sorry nobody from Staff was able to make it out there. Whoever took the lead did a great job! There were a few obstacles in there that I've never seen. Guess I need to spend some more time in CB.

Awesome pics and vids. The drone footage is insane! Thank you for all your hard work putting that together.

I requested the day off 1 month advanced to see you and you were not there! Hopefully be out there to see you again. Always learning with the staff and I can see the difference in skill with the veteran wheelers. (Bill on this trip) Going to grad school soon so hopefully I can work it into my schedule for future trips.

Hey ... Any more videos? I saw Alex taking quite a few. I would like to see my truck from the front to see how my suspension did with the sway bar removed.

Apologies for the lag.

Was out of town all week for work.

I'll see if I can't get them uploaded today.

Ken,
The video that you took of me almost went viral on Instagram last week. Your video garnered over 10,000 views on my Instagram page and I didn't even put any hashtags in the post. Crazy. Thanks for making me famous for a few days!

Okay everyone!

Better late than never I hope!

Here's the link to the google drive folder where I uploaded all of the videos. None have been edited and some haven't even been watched so fingers crossed that there's some good stuff in there for everyone!

Does anyone still need access?

If so, if you give me an email address then I can add you manually.

I approved all of the permission requests so I hope that everyone has gotten access by now.

If not, please let me know.
