The final info has been processed for the Chile Challenge. Almost 200 vehicles passed through the registration & inspection so you can figure well over 300 people were in attendance. Well organized and fun events. A lot of new trails were run and the new ratings (similar to MOAB) have made it much more challenging. I found the Moderate trails (rated 6) were very challenging! Great fun, but it did take much longer.
I'm home to rest after attending the Las Cruces Four Wheel Drive Club's "Chile Challenge" at Caballo Lake State Park. I'm guessing about 200 people attended the event and drove the new and old trails laid out for the event. Great week of off road fun! The ratings for the 28th annual Challenge were changed to better reflect the rating system in use at Moab. Makes it much more challenging for all.
