The Tennessee Off-Road Challenge
Monteagle, TN - June 23-25, 2000
was the second navigation event and was run similar to the first. Some
of the spots were easy but if you wanted the big points you had to head
down the Stage Coach trail. Well-known as one of Monteagle's toughest
trails, not all drivers ventured in or all the way.
The Bronco team
got pretty far but decided to turn back once they saw Brenda's Hill.
The Suzuki team
did the same. However, on the way back up they busted their rear
Team 19 came
down Brenda's Hill but before hitting the last section, they stopped.
The nav. point in this area was very well hidden. We weren't sure
where it was, either, but after they went on down the hill, we found
it right around the corner! oops!
were the "pros" of the competition. With ralley computers,
laptops, and just about every other goody you can imagine, it was
amazing they actually couldn't find the one nav. point!
This was the
last we saw of Team 19 that day. They got deep into the trail and
overheated. After hours of waiting, we all got nervous and went
on a rescue mission. Thanks to PRS radios, CB's, cell phones, and
GPS's, we found them safe and sound and got them back to town.
On the way back
up, we found the Bronco team stopped to help out the Suzuki. We
let the Bronco guys go on so they could continue competing and we
towed the Suzuki back up to town.
