In a Hummer H2 in the Cleveland National Forest OHV Trail just north of the US-Mexico Border in Southern California. It took 3 hours to travel approximately through 3 miles of treacherous terrain... over rocks, through mud, etc. It was an experience of a lifetime. We got stuck a few times where I even locked up the car and pondered leaving the forest on foot and hiring some sort of Helicopter Service or airlift out of there. The emotions were very high and very low. Through some major stress, we figured out how to get out of each mess that we got ourselves into. We were inexperienced off-roaders who made every mistake in the book. 1.) We did not use the buddy system (eg, go off-roading with another off-road vehicle) 2.) We did not tell our families where we were going 3.) We did not pre-scout the trail so we could be better prepared and 4.) We did not remove the side-steps from the Hummer. They eventually got crushed into the belly of the Hummer. All-in-all, we lucked out and were able to figure out each predicament we got ourselves into using our knowledge of math, the ability to think logically, and the fact that we were in a Hummer. I believe it is GM's best built vehicle, a true beast. Hooray for American Ingenuity! By the Way, Part 8 represents our most difficult task.
