ABC at KOH, ..

Recommended Posts

Did 5 days in Mother G, week and a half later did 5 days in Johnson Valley for KOH. I accidentally crossed the course about a 1/2 dozen times. Sometimes it was super obvious, my passenger and I are like, oh SH_T.. we're on the course!... we did a lot more mobbing around than spectating, except at night.

Got this KILLER view (again whoops... crossed the course) just prior to the trophy trucks going out. It was choice.  Once we knew where we were we just stayed for about an hour or 2 until the trucks came, watched them, then went down when they were done. ..  sat up there and ate my chicken wrap and slogged beers...

We got stopped  WAY far away and there were no markings by LEOs on 2 wheelers,.. they were cool and got us back to 'safety.' 

This is the 3rd year I've gone (not consecutive) and I don't plan to miss it again.  Actually  my next trip will be to Johnson Valley (no offense Mother G).

 

So much there to explore.. and I only tossed 1 belt   😛

Looks good but where are the dunes?

I watched a documentary about KOH last night and told myself I'm not missing it next year. Last weekend I went to help pit for @Reece at the SNORE 250 and it was a blast. Looking forward to getting into more dirt related off roading soon. I actually spent more time in the dirt than sand when I was younger cuz Johnson/Apple/Lucerne valleys are much closer than the dunes and I wanted to race long distance on 2 wheels. But after a big crash when I was younger that landed me in the hospital I put all my focus on Sand. Definitely not reeling back on the time I spend on sand moving forward, but would like to put some emphasis on dirt as well.

I went to KOH this year. This was my 4th consecutive year and I don’t plan on ever missing one in the future.   Actually shopping for a rock crawler this summer so I can start enjoying the trails instead of watching everyone else have fun. 

But still had a blast in the prerunner while it lasted.

See I don’t need to upload... my peeps do it...

It was very cold even in the daytime we would make fires even in the day time.

My buddy rolled his four seater on its side at around midnight Saturday night and we drove around lost in the flats since I don’t know any markers around there and was towing him for three hours. .. blind.. ya know. .. I kept falling asleep  when I was getting towed cause we switched, drivers/leaders... it was pretty funny/sad.... Eventually I started to hit my truck alarm which is a train horn and that’s how we found camp ...  like 3 AM ....

I was ready just to sleep in the car… LOL 

Still an awesome trip!

PS. Right after this video, the choppers are following the Trophy Trucks .. there were 2 like 50 feet above our head .. so it seemed..

Yeah I like my trailer warm as well. In five days I went through 8 gallons of propane for my little 25 foot trailer.

I knew it was going to be below freezing so I  brought 10 extra gallons and ended up giving one to someone in camp we didn’t bring enough .

Everyone  in my camp was making fun of me because I brought a scarf from our snow gear but I can tell you it was a lifesaver along with the three layers top and bottom, mechanic gloves to hold my beer and a beanie and a hoodie .

Car never overheated… LOL

Yep long johns at night and a rainproof windbreaker over all your warm layers make it barrable.

Russell L4 fleece long johns kept me warm working 12 hours a day in -15*F (after windchill) Connecticut.  Essential.

Yep, KOTH was once again a good time.  I haven't been in about 10 years so decided to go Thurs/Fri.  Had a blast and "accidentally" got nice and close to the course during the trophy truck race.  It lasted about 30 minutes before the "officials" moved us back.  Definitely going again next year.

ABC, thanks for your cool photos and videos.  To get to that excellent lookout spot you had in your first photo, what kind of climbing did you have to do?  Like easy, moderate, or difficult?

Ran 4 high most of the time, but better on the motor and drivetrain to be in 4 low for that hill or any steep hill up or down we’re youre not going to exceed 25mph IMO.

Razor scooted up it no problem it was a slightly sandy dirt hill with small rocks.

we saw the trail and scooted up it no time.

Thanks,

abc
