Marlin and I were in charge of working Posi Hill which is one of the more difficult areas of the trail. There are a couple less challenging ledges to the left but to the far right is what many refer to as the "Buggy line": Two big ledges that are a wheelbase hole for many vehicles. It's pretty nasty to the far right.

The Crawler Truck and my Tacoma ready to provide assistance.

There were some people definitely using too much skinny pedal resulting in some carnage. This was the only roll over pic I got, this one a UTV. There were three or four roll overs. When you don't have low enough gearing, the only option is to gun it and hope for the best. It's unfortunate.

There were lulls from time to time when we'd be waiting for different run groups to make their way to Posi. During one of these lulls I decided to give it a go in the Tacoma: Attempt Posi Hill on the left side without having any posi lockers!!!

After I made it up this diesel-powered military Hummer came up to attempt the same line. He was also open-open... and... he... failed... over... and.... over... again... and... again! He must have tried for a solid 10 mins. He then turned around and left the area and people came over to me impressed how my Tacoma was able to make it up. :D MAN I love what the Marlin Crawler TacoBox Dual Case setup has done to my Tacoma!

And that's it! We got back to camp about 1:45am and enjoyed the raffle the next morning. Not sure when I'll be able to attend Moonlight Madness again but it was nice to support a local event for a change!
