Ohio Beast and Sprint Weekend

Southington Off-Road Park, Garrettsville OH - 06/02-03/18

The Beast is by far my favorite race. Having the Sprint on day two is nice and helps work out some of the stiffness. Weather held out again and both days were great. This race was at an off road park, so if I can sum up this weekend in a few words it would be "tire ruts". Spend a lot of time running in or between tire ruts.

Saturday’s Beast run was great. I only failed SpearMan. Tried twice than gave up. The course was nice a flat so it was an easy run. Sunday’s Sprint was fun also. This time I nailed every obstacle including SpearMan. For some reason this coarse tore my hands up a bit.




 

RV/Camping:
Friday night I camped at my favorite spot, Walmart. My spot was off the side of the building and right by a large grassy area. Must have been a pond nearby. Lots of wildlife noises all night. Was sort of nice and made me forget I was camping in a parking lot.

The Redbox movie selection was 15:17 to Paris. You might think you are getting an action film about a terrorist on a train, but you would only be half way right. 95% of the movie is just the main character’s life stories leading up to the train. The train part is really short and not the focus of the movie. Over all it was a lame boring movie.



As I was arriving at the event location I saw nearby houses offering closer parking. They were more than willing to let me park and stay overnight on their front lawn. Not going to pass up closer and cheaper parking. I was not expecting to camp onsite on Saturday night so I didn’t have food or a movie with me. Unhooked the trailer and made a quick trip back to Walmart for pizza and movie.

The Redbox movie selection was 12 strong. Pretty good movie, I enjoyed it. Camping onsite is always nice. Nothing beats just stepping out of the trailer and walking over to the race.

Not sure what happened but the fuel pump on the generator extra tank set up quit working saturday morning. I was a little nervous leaving the dogs in the trailer with only the generators main tank available to run the generator. Luckily it wasn't very hot outside so the AC didn't run much and it didn't use much fuel. Didn't have the tools needed to test or verify what died. Could be the pump, the timer that controls the pump, or the relay that turns the pump on. Going to investigate the failure and reconfigure the extra fuel tank set up. Also going to add some electrical tools and supplies to the RV. Can't risk running out of fuel on a really hot day.

Sunday after the race I packed up and drove home.
