The other day I was lucky enough to get a Reach and Treat (RAT) Standby for the second day of the Oregon Trail Rally near Hood River, Oregon within the foothills of the northern slope of Mount Hood. We did 209 miles of driving in the RAT rig as a medical chase vehicle behind the Sweep and other safety crews. It was fun getting to really know how well the RAT rig handles on gravel roads with the knowledge that no one would be coming the other way. On the medical front, super glad everyone completed the day with no major injuries.
The only moments I had for photos was the start of the first stage and the start of the fourth stage, I got some video and photos in those area. Ran around through the forest to get different angles of the course, since naturally once the stage starts you can’t be on the road.
