Defense Mine trail is about 20 miles from Ballarat, Ca. Out of the 3 runs the Clampers put on on Saturday, this was the most difficult one.

That looks awesome john, we have to go wheeling together, what do you think your next trip is going to be?

By the way that place looks like it has some fun optional lines :)

No idea when the next trip will be. They fired one of the other managers at work and so I'll be ending up on Catalina for most of the spring until they replace him (he and I would switch off out there).

It had some cool optional lines, one called the Jeep Eater. Here's a vid of it:
