We started day two with the obstacle course. Unlike some events, this one is kept hidden until you start, but you can see a map prior, so memorize it. First you must descend an extremely steep hill before turning into water holes. We floundered but eventually worked the bank down enough to launch out and onto the rest of the trail. Unfortunately a now wet boot slipped from the brake pedal and sent us through a low-hanging tree branch, which cracked the windshield and had driver and copilot laughing like lunatics as we bounced through the steep holes, tight corners, and twisty notches. A tight, quick-turning rig with gobs of power would outdo a monster truck in this episode.
