longview daily newpaper route owner falls asleep at 3 am last week .
State Patrol called several tow operators all declined the tow unless
state would supply a diver . The State gave the owner of the car one week
to get the car out of the river . If he did not get it out the state would
hire a recovery company to do it and then bill the owner . I told the owner
if he could get a chain onto the car I would make an attempt to remove it
. This wreck happened 60 miles east of my shop in Wakiakum County . The
owner Greg and his friend Josh did all the rigging I just told them
where to hook the chains . They save a lot of maney by doing all the
dirty work . The owner was excited to find all his cash and coins were
wtill in the trunk of the car . He had oabot $50 in change and cash in a
box locked in the trunk . He went off the wesst side of the bridge with so
much momentum that the car made it within 8 feet of the east bank . before
the sank Greg got out on the roof and jumped to the shore . He only got
his shoes wet . The river is at least 150 feet across . He also was
wearing his seat belt and upon impact the airbags deployed . The damage
to the windshield happened when the car hit the water . Greg is a very
luck man .
Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
The Obstacle Course begins with a shockingly tall and long slippery hill
descent known as the "first hill" and it ends with a nasty dogleg gully
that's tantalizingly close to the finish line. In between is a treasure
trove of terror. The "lower section" forces competitors to navigate a
360-degree turn through three deep water holes and sand. From there,
competitors travel up a hill to the "upper section" that includes a
deceiving off-camber U-turn (known as "U-turn Hill"), two deep water holes,
and numerous tight turns. This event has a 10-minute time limit, but speed
is the enemy. This is because the course is marked with numerous cones and
each one hit adds 20 seconds to the overall time. If all four tires of a
rig travel outside a cone the rig is disqualified at that point. Safety
violations net a whopping two-minute penalty. Clearly, accuracy is the key
to success in the Obstacle Course.
Think back to those hillclimbs you've done in your 4x4. Yeah, the TTC Hill
Climb isn't like that. The Hill Climb is built specifically for TTC, it's
approximately 600 feet in length and it has an average angle of
approximately 60 degrees. It twists and turns as it winds through the
poison oak and it's peppered with strategically-placed deep holes and dirt
hills. Yes, we added hills to our Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is loose,
steep, and unpredictable. Naturally, we don't let drivers see it before
they run it because that would ruin the surprise. The Hill Climb rewards
those who can think on-the-fly and punishes those who are thinking about
the next event. We allowed each competitor 5 minutes to tackle the hill and
during that time they could stop, reverse, or winch. If a competitor
exceeded the time limit, traveled out of bounds, or violated a safety rule
they were disqualified at that point.
The Mini Rubicon, a staple of Top Truck for years, was a brutal event that
forced competitors to fight for every inch of forward progress. It was
tough and unforgiving. We wanted something tougher. So, for 2013 we
replaced the Mini Rubicon with the awe-inspiring Coal Chute. This event
uses a newly developed area (Rock Rash Ridge) at the Hollister Hills SVRA
that contains an amazing collection of man-made obstacles. Naturally, we
tweaked it to make it exclusive to Top Truck. Our mind-bending course was
approximately 525 feet in length, and included steep walls in excess of 7
feet tall and jumbles of rocks and cement tubes. We even brought in a water
truck and created a waterfall on the final cement climb. The course was
broken into four distinct sections. We threw competitors a curve ball and
allowed them to skip one of the two first sections. However, we penalized
each competitor 10 minutes if they bypassed the first section and 6 minutes
if they bypassed the second section. Strategy was a major player at this
event. There was a 20-minute time limit and safety violations netted a
two-minute penalty. If two of the vehicles tires traveled outside of the
cones the competitor was disqualified at that point.

Long Subaru hill climb
Kinda long hill climb, its me in Ricks wagon. Lift was done recently(right
before the video) and wasn't quite perfected yet. He has no shifter
bushing in the car so the gears are very hard to actually find. I had some
trouble getting it into reverse, but I managed... See the shortened
