Hey y'all.

I just found out I'm off Thursday and Friday which will give me ample time to finish up my 2.2 tuber. I plan on going out to Veterans Park to test it out as well as possibly scope out some locations at River Legacy. If anyone else is interested I'd be glad to meet up with some folks. Also open to other locations Veterans just has a large mix of terrain.

*edit* I forgot to post the time.

I usually drive early mornings right at sun up or late evenings, like... 7:30-dark. Call me a wuss but I don't feel like standing out in the sun all day in Texas in the summer. If anyone else is interested let me know so we can work out a time.

The address for the park is:

8600 W. Arkansas Ln. Arlington, TX 76016

Here's a map:

I actually meant for the run to be on Sunday. I was just saying 2 solid days of work should get my rig ready to test.

Time can be agreed upon by those interested, I'm pretty flexible but prefer mornings and evenings.

When driving down spanish trail to get in to the park enter your 2nd parking lot on the right, it's about 3/4 mile south of arkansas and spanish trail.

We can meet in the parking lot or there's a concrete path that borders the field and we can meet at the gazeebo. Everything cool starts there.

Updated a couple posts with more info.

And a pic of the place to kind of give an idea, this is by far one of the more mild spots although it is still fairly steep. It's difficult to take pics and drive at the same time. I really need a gopro.

My apologies to anyone who is on their way to Veterans Park. I had an emergency come up last night and will be unable to make it to the park today. If y'all are at the park wondering what the hell to do, follow the concrete path on the north side of the open field to the gazeebo at the top of the hill. On the back side of the gazeebo is part of the disc golf course, starting from the top of the hill everything off down to the right of the hill has really cool terrain. If you have any questions while out there there's a bunch of disc golfers who'd be glad to point you in the right direction.

Man, I feel so bad. I just couldn't drive on a hour of sleep. I didn't feel safe getting home.

On the bright side, since my day got ruined today my girlfriend insisted I went out and test drove the rig this evening. I got a good hour and a half out of it, no lipo cut off even set at 3.5v/cell. No broken tubes even being not complete and no broken parts so I'm super happy. I took a few more photos of the place so if you ever do want to come back down you'll have an idea of what's there.

My roommate also brought out his scx10

My phone died before it as all said and done and the good camera accidently got left at home.
