    I drove halfway up F trail just to catch a sunset, and check for erosion, but the trail looks good.
    Everything is green .

    Bond extension on home approved for the fuel cost to cover the trip (just kidding, but not really)
    Just need to psych myself up for the long drive and hope the little one behaves or sleeps.

    First sleepover stop, Keimoes, then we hit the dirt and take the back roads to Klein Pella and setup camp.

    H trail day 3. Highlighted obstacle was Moon rock, the surface was smoother than silk, I tried, did damage, no chance I would make it up unlike the first few who I will leave Jors to reveal. Especially after vehicles the wet sand made a mess of the traction. But even if I was the first to attempt, my vehicle would not have made it.

    Luckily I had a friendly jeep with a winch to pull me up.

    H Trail is not a walk, or crawl in the park. I made it through but consider myself defeated by it. I was snatched, winched, bumper grinded.

    Next up was obstacle XXX. I wish I could of had a bypass route and chickened out.
    That was not an option.
