I loved the show and wondered if a raptor would have made it through the mud bogs. Epic adventure for sure, and no seat belt = double the pucker factor on some of those ridges that were exposed. Hope they do another season.
Show was ridiculous. The trail names were made up and the "Route" was from multiple trails across the state stitched together. There's a long thread on Pirate that gets into a lot more detail with some of the contestants chiming in.
I'm out of here. pm if you need help.
