This was just some good times, up in NH and WV last time I went. The mud pit toward the end I won when the competition started for 2 wheel drive. And the truck and trailer in the first couple of shots is my hauling set up.

The mud pit was in the Hatfiel McCoy trails. I went to some event last summer that I can't remember the name of down there, and they had this sweet mud pit. I was the first one that attempted it (the 4x4's didn't even want to try it), and after I did it about 4 times the day prior to the actual race in it, everyone else figured they would try. It was mad fun, but I have to admit, they found two water mocasins in there, and that turned my night sour until I was sure they were out, LOL. The guy I was doing a tug 0 war with had a raptor 700, got stuck in the first corner of the pit, and I killed him the three times we drag raced, but he was a good sport. I was looking at the GoPros, but this was all done while being chased, and mostly a little drinking, so that could be why its a little shaky ;)

The air was on a 84ft single to table top, and it was with my 450R. It is a lot of fun once you learn how to hit it, but it is scary b/c the landing off the table top is more of a straight down angle, so it is very easy to over shoot it like I have done once or twice. I dont think I would attempt that on the 700 unless I had some better shocks lol.

Oh Yeah. When I flipped over inthe mud, the lap before that I actually landed it, but no one got it on film. That mud was a mixture of sand as well, so Ijust wore everything into the showers, including my helmet, and it took forever. I am hoping Nikki to go again. That was between the two big towns down there, it was called Dirt Days I believe.

you look like you were having a blast!!! I use to tie a milk crate to the back of my atc was a great time till the bottom blew out and my lil cousin Becky went crying to our moms... there is some pictures and videos of xx700xx (I think it is) getting some good air on his 700xx wonder what shocks he has...

theres a good question wonder what is the best air anyone has gotten on a stock shocks?

I did about a 71ft drop off in a gravel bed. The day that I burnt thru my carharts actually. We found a sweet drop off, and we paced it out after I went down, well the best we could anyway considering it was kind of vertical, but to our estimate it was about 71ft. I hit it in 2nd gear and just tapped the back brake to bring the nose down. Went out about 8 feet total to give you an idea of the horizontal distance. Wish I had a camera that day though, so much happened, especially when I caught on figre :)

Yeah, it was a drop off in the gravel bed where they were using a PAN (I think is what it is called over, like a crane over an edge). It is a straight drop off for about 40 feet, (a guestimate as we couldn't measure) and then it goes ou gradually in a downward slope. So trying to calculate going out about 8 feet, and landing down, we pace about 7 times up the slope before the straight vertical section, so we figured it out to be about 71 feet. It looked scary from the bottom, but from the top it didn't seem so bad. The downward angle provide a nice smooth slope to land on, and how the XX jumps I was sure as long as I hit the edge straight it would even out in the air if need be. Just had to tap the brakes to get the nose down.

YES 71 ft to be calculated. Some guy on a dirtbike (KTM 525) told us he was hitting it earlier on in the day as we were doing donuts on the ice below it. I said no way, and then looked closer and found a few tracks from where he landed. He did it again to prove to us he was doing it so my cousin and I looked at each other and were like, why the F### not. It really wasn't that bad, just something I wouldn't be the first to do. It had a sweet landing for what it was, better than most table tops I have launched the XX on.
