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.

DSCF0003

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?

DSCF0017

This apparition was pretty for a ghost. From the skull, I deduced that she was once on a pirate ship. She haunted this JK.

DSCF0021

Alright, enough talking and gawking. Let’s get this drivers’ meeting going.

DSCF0023

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.

DSCF0029

Of course no G6 can begin until the National Anthem is played.

DSCF0032

The first Trail Marker was through the mud pit. It’s better to get the dirty part with over quickly.

DSCF0033

Most rigs took the first pass in the mud a little daintily.

DSCF0041

These guys were happy to get in a little Truckee water to wash off the mud.

DSCF0042

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.

DSCF0044

There were several pink kits on course, most of them driven by females. We love to see the ladies at the RECON G6.

DSCF0045

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.

DSCF0047

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.

DSCF0049

Tree roots are like stairs.

DSCF0050

If you see a stamp on a RECON G6 trail, stop and stamp your log book.

DSCF0052

This pipe was easy if you were the first few kits through.  It got a little dug out and became tricky quickly.

DSCF0053

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.

DSCF0054

Luckily, Tree was there to lend a hand to his fellow G6er.

DSCF0056

I see another one of those pink kits back there.

DSCF0058

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.

DSCF0059

Team Scuba tried not to get fully submerged this time.

DSCF0064

TM79 was the turnaround point.

DSCF0067

Back a G Central, drivers got to do a little hopscotch.

DSCF0071

They also got to tackle the Bautista Terror.

DSCF0072

Drivers did 2 laps, so another pass through the mud pit was necessary.

DSCF0077

Not a Conga line, but still more fun.

DSCF0081

The Hobbit section was tight going, but by the second lap, the G Trail had been cut in nicely.

DSCF0083

The trees around Reno were starting to turn a pretty orange for fall.

DSCF0085

Pooped Parker chilled by the pit while Anthony, aka Rivas Concepts, did work.

DSCF0086

Those lights tell me it’s time for the night stage.

DSCF0088

This pink kit is ready to conquer the night.

DSCF0114

Pink sweatshirt, you know what that means.

DSCF0094

Yup, females representing.

DSCF0109

Uh oh, help a brother out will ya?

DSCF0111

Of course, helping is what the Spirit of the G is all about.

DSCF0115

Up the rocks…

DSCF0119

…and down the rocks

DSCF0121

Time to go Boony Bumping in the Rip Rap.

DSCF0124

This Wraith makes the Truckee River glow green.

DSCF0129

This is what it looks like before you get run over.

DSCF0133

Lots of fun is happening here.

DSCF0134

Rivas Concepts is trying to figure out where the 1.9 and 2.2 lines are.

DSCF0141

Night bath.

DSCF0144

Darkness makes water even more treacherous.

DSCF0146

There’s a lady doing work.

DSCF0149

And another.

DSCF0152

Another family getting in some drive time.

DSCF0153

The Tree Crotch of Doom.  That wire hooked a few kits.

DSCF0157

G Train.

DSCF0163

What the heck is that?

DSCF0164

The Glowing, Smoking Mud Pit.  Party Time!

DSCF0166

Like an alien crossing.

DSCF0167

This guy tried to jump the mud. He almost made it.

DSCF0176

The highlight of this little guys night was getting to drive the mud pit.
