The 5ft pit - pics and discussion
« on: August 22, 2007, 03:04:58 PM »
The 5ft pit  (Pole Line) has been notorious in the past for drowning rigs.  Let's see your pics of getting thru the pit, or at least how far you got!

I'm not sure who this is, but I took it last year while watching and waiting to make a run on the pit myself. This is a prime example of there's two lines in that hole!

5 foot is to the top of my rigs hood.
In the ruts, it's about 3 feet.
(or about 4 feet after I ripped through it 3 times)  :nana2:

The depth of it seems to be pretty dependent (like all the holes) on how much previous rain the park had.  First weekend of August it wasn't very deep at all.

Last time I went thru it was only up just past the Blazer's rocker panels.

Can't wait to get out there this weekend and make a run at it :O}
