RECON G6 Presents
Paranormal Scale Activity
Haunted Rock Park, Sparks, Nevada
October 19, 2013
This was the third year that the RECON G6 held an event at Rock Park. Each October in conjunction with the Halloween spirit, the RECON Crew hosts a spooky event to entertain their loyal followers. This year the theme was the paranormal as the title implies. Many eager G6ers came out to experience chilling fun.
Jesse, aka Fliptout808, is the newest member of the RECON G6 crew. He handled the check in.
Broken Clothing came and hung out to support the G6ers.
Some Axialfest attendees represented with their Axialfest Banners and window stickers.
Since there was paranormal activity reported, the Ghost Busters showed up, who else you gonna call?
This apparition was pretty for a ghost. From the skull, I deduced that she was once on a pirate ship. She haunted this JK.
Alright, enough talking and gawking. Let’s get this drivers’ meeting going.
A ghost must have stolen Parker’s voice, because I have never heard him this quiet; even after Axialfest. He enlisted the help of Erik O’bien, aka Tree, to relay the rules and his message of fun.
Of course no G6 can begin until the National Anthem is played.
The first Trail Marker was through the mud pit. It’s better to get the dirty part with over quickly.
Most rigs took the first pass in the mud a little daintily.
These guys were happy to get in a little Truckee water to wash off the mud.
Because the RECON G6 is so much fun, lots of families come out and run as a group. Here the Meeks clan begins their day.
There were several pink kits on course, most of them driven by females. We love to see the ladies at the RECON G6.
This guy’s smiling because he knows that finishing a RECON G6 is like winning a RECON G6. Here he is just taking a minute to readjust his beadlocks.
I know these guys are RECON G6 vets because the one on the right is wearing his G6 Certified shirt. Look at his smile. That’s why he came back.
Tree roots are like stairs.
If you see a stamp on a RECON G6 trail, stop and stamp your log book.
This pipe was easy if you were the first few kits through. It got a little dug out and became tricky quickly.
Not only was the pipe tricky, but so was the footing. The ground was a little steep and this unlucky fellow took a face dive into the Truckee.
Luckily, Tree was there to lend a hand to his fellow G6er.
I see another one of those pink kits back there.
Ahh, spider! Wait a minute; that’s a fake spider. If you see suspicious things like this at a RECON G6, pick it up and drive it back to G Central. You get a little bonus for it.
Team Scuba tried not to get fully submerged this time.
TM79 was the turnaround point.
Back a G Central, drivers got to do a little hopscotch.
They also got to tackle the Bautista Terror.
Drivers did 2 laps, so another pass through the mud pit was necessary.
Not a Conga line, but still more fun.
The Hobbit section was tight going, but by the second lap, the G Trail had been cut in nicely.
The trees around Reno were starting to turn a pretty orange for fall.
Pooped Parker chilled by the pit while Anthony, aka Rivas Concepts, did work.
Those lights tell me it’s time for the night stage.
This pink kit is ready to conquer the night.
Pink sweatshirt, you know what that means.
Yup, females representing.
Uh oh, help a brother out will ya?
Of course, helping is what the Spirit of the G is all about.
Up the rocks…
…and down the rocks
Time to go Boony Bumping in the Rip Rap.
This Wraith makes the Truckee River glow green.
This is what it looks like before you get run over.
Lots of fun is happening here.
Rivas Concepts is trying to figure out where the 1.9 and 2.2 lines are.
Darkness makes water even more treacherous.
There’s a lady doing work.
Another family getting in some drive time.
The Tree Crotch of Doom. That wire hooked a few kits.
What the heck is that?
The Glowing, Smoking Mud Pit. Party Time!
Like an alien crossing.
This guy tried to jump the mud. He almost made it.
The highlight of this little guys night was getting to drive the mud pit.
1.9 Driver of the Day
2.2 Driver of the Day
Broken Clothing Driver of the Night
Another Broken Clothing Driver of the Night
