Absoulty try!

Its only like a 3-3.5 hour drive. super easy. Head down 96 until you can't go any farther, then up 31 until you find a silver lake sign.

Riding a quad out there is much more fun then driving a truck. Mainly because you dont have to worry about breaking your ride home!

I would like to add, in a stock truck make sure you slow down near the top or else you become airborn...

Yea. I found out the hard way. most of Test hill was pretty steep last year. Only later in the day did part of it get knocked down.

You, Matt and Aaron had me freaking out after cause Aaron thought it would be funny to yell
"Dude! your trucks leaking now!"

Also, We watched a 4 banger Kia Rondo or w/e try for about an hour Saturday night.

Remember those middle eastern guys in the Chevy try forever? I think they also had a foreign SUV. I don't remember saying things are leaking though.

I don't know if you were standing there or not, but it was Maly and Aaron.
Right after i came up test on the side like 2 feet from the fence. I jumped it a bit on the top cause i was doing like 30 when i hit the top

I had brand new hole shots on mine and I did fine. I was down to about .5 PSI. The only thing, if you start to dig in, STOP! you will sink like a rock.

I would suggest bumping your front sprocket up a tooth or 2, and then keeping the RPMs as has as possible.

That is some good stuff. I would be willing to go half on a keg.
