-snip of good points-

Wow, I'm impressed at how much thought you put into this. The "mini-route" such as going from the swamps of Zancudo to around the Alamo Sea is genius! Like bite-size events, I would love to join these as well. My 4-wheel Dubsta was pretty good, yes, but I also had the very sh*tty Duneloader. The best piece of advice that you can give to people is as you said; think of the vehicle you'll bring. Honestly I would focus on ONE vehicle and know it's strengths and weaknesses. The 4-wheel Dubsta can climb a lot of stuff but doesn't have ground clearance while the Sandking does but is a bit heavier, requiring more speed in some cases. The 2 week mega-event sounds like a great challenge to celebrate something. Maybe hold these mini-events as "tests" and see who likes to offroad and would be most suitable to join a 3 hour journey. Maybe add some sort of prize or special mention to those that do the whole 3-hour route (or however long it may take to get all around the map).

 

I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread as I would love a chill meet again. :)

Zancudo off road river challenge


tonight



3am (GMT)


22.00(EST)


19.00(PST)



we meet 10 mins before




(think thats the right times)


will be running another one over the weekend that is UK time friendly




the meet will start at the gas station on route 68 before the bridge over lago Zancudo.


the challenge will be to off road up the zancudo river, around the Alamo sea and back down the river on the other side finishing at the sea.



this will be off-roading so take it slow traveling in a convoy, give the other drivers plenty of space. if some one gets stuck help them out.(we wont have the cargobob)


along the way we will stop for :



  • the river jump photo shoot.
  • Galilee Hill climb race.
  • technical off road 1vs1 elimination challenges
  • various photo shoots around the Alamo sea.


at the start


There will be a number of voting categories


  • best looking off roader,
  • (split into categories of off road,Suv overall)
  • most likely to make it ,
  • least likely to make

it half way though we will vote for


  • best technical driver
  • and how the f** did he make it over that
  • best performing off-roader


winners will be priority auto entry's for the full " around Los Santos challenge" later in the month



rules and tips


no shooting each other no destroying cars ( the terrain is gonna cost you enough on insurance) we can have a deathmatch when we finish.



give each other space, we will plan our route over terrain.



if a player loses a car give them a lift, we can call a mechanic for them at the next road.



if you get a wanted level call lester or take the police away from the rest of the group.


have fun

Hey i am in !!! What time is it? On central us?

CST (Central Standard Time) would be 9PM. CST is always an hour behind EST.

 

Good rules, laughed at the "how the f*ck did he make it up". Definitely interested!

If you don't mind I've messaged players that are real cool and that I know - will tell them to check this thread out to sign up.

 

Raptor (posted below) is my one of my mates, real cool dude.

Awsome meet guy sorry if it was a bit slow and chaotic at times . Hope you enjoyed some of the terrain and jumps. Will try work at a system for the tough hill bits so people at the back get a fair shot and number of attempts at things.

 

Gonna have to put the next one at a earlier start as well as a 7am uk finish is a bit late lol .... 24 hrs without sleep ain't good.

 

Good to see a wide selection of trucks ( and a jester) attempt things.

 

And a big thanks to the guys in the helicopters I'm sure they got some ace shots.

 

Thinking of running the next event a bit shorter split over two nights

 

Any feedback would be good, but please consider that this is the first event I've run.

 

Thanks to all who attended pics will follow. Soon :)

Feedback & Pictures
September 18th-19th

Feedback:

There's so much to cover that I have no clue where to start off. I think the best way would be to take it from the beginning - the waiting at the gas station near Fort Zancudo wasn't boring at all and didn't seem long despite staying there for a good 20 minutes, waiting on players who were in the city. Small talk before the actual meet was done so it was real nice, getting to know others and stuff. We then drove off straight into the swamp area behind us and the host found some sweet maneuvers and paths for us to follow. The swamp phase was short as we then got on the side of the river going up to Sandy Shores. Everyone kept a good distance from one another and there were few accidents. The most notable accidents were made by the guy in the orange Sandking, CoolerAbyss7366, who would later not follow directions to the point of kicking him or he left on his own will. Talking with him about his driving abilities/skills would be the best way to handle the issue for future meets.

The river that we were currently on at that point was infuriating as progress was slow. It was slow because people who could clearly not make it up a hill kept trying, stubbornly believing they could find a way. Most of those stubborn players didn't really wait for their turn, gunning the gas and ramming others who were trying as well. A system should be created where everyone gets two tries (seems like a good number). If you can't get it in two tries, no matter if you're close or not, you should be asked to move on to an easier path and let others try. Due to the slow progress I skipped a lot of the obstacles along that first river as I was stuck at the back for 10 minutes and not moving an inch. The jumping sections, as fun as they may be, were boring for players like me who didn't want to screw up their truck and wanted a real challenge. I didn't do any of the first jumps, only the one where you splashed in the water. I think only one spot with a jump should be included in future meets to keep it short and a memorable moment as I don't really care to remember any of the jumping sections that we did.

While the meet had a lot of cool people, I would like to warn the following:

blingMasta D

Shooting down a player in a helicopter just out of pure boredom will not be tolerated (if I may speak for steve dogg 51, host of the meet). I asked him why he shot the player, using a sniper rifle (I saw him do it), and he replied with, "freak luck". There was no reason whatsoever to shoot him. The player you shot down was in no way a threat to you and was in a helicopter for the most part of the meet. I don't want to "hijack" steve's thread but if I join one of steve's meet again and you shoot a player while I'm there you will be blacklisted (at least from my own list), no matter what the reason for killing another player may be (revenge or boredom such as this case). You are welcomed back but please don't kill another player unless accidental or in a playful manner (depending on scenarios), please.

Other than a very few problematic players (two) and having slow progress on some parts, the rest of the meet was wonderful. The trails were challenging to the point where I had to step down and accept defeat. I met some cool people and had an amazing time. I would recommend and join one of your meets again. The concept is really smart and the execution was well done but I believe next time will be better. Congrats on an amazing meet, steve, get yourself some sleep now! ;)

Pictures:


So we got a bit drunk before the meet...
0_0.jpg

My truck of choice (right), the Canis Seminole. Horrible for most parts but probably has the best brakes in the game, seriously.
0_0.jpg

Variety included a dune buggy, a baja-esque Rebel and a fancy-turned-offroad Huntley S:
0_0.jpg

Of course, the usual trucks of offroad meets were there such as a Merryweather Mesa and a 6x6 Dubsta:
0_0.jpg

I was surprised when this one showed up:
0_0.jpg

Here we can see the host look on as a bear fights a nicely dressed man:
0_0.jpg

6x6x3 = FUN! Actually, probably some number but who the hell uses math when you can go offroading:
0_0.jpg

Willy Wonka checking me out like I'm a piece of meat and he's been starving:
0_0.jpg

The Rebel found another Rebel and quickly made friends with it:
0_0.jpg

Thinking Tom shown below, thinking hard. "Hmm, I wonder if my wife will be okay all alone at home. Good thing she called my best-friend to keep her company!"
0_0.jpg

Of course someone had to show up in something different:
0_0.jpg

The sun was quickly setting and I had to get a few shots before it left:
0_0.jpg

All lined up!

Currently doing the voting:

People were unsure which car to pick for each category:
0_0.jpg

Players were asked for the "Best Looking Offroader" - which Ferrari's 6x6 won. Congrats!
0_0.jpg

They were then asked to pick the vehicle that would be the "Most Likely To Make It" - which timoshenko77 won. Congrats!
0_0.jpg

Lastly and contrasting the previous category, they were asked to pick the one that would be the "Least Likely To Make It" - host steve dogg 51's Huntley S won. Congrats?
0_0.jpg

Our first challenge and this stock Mesa (silver one pictured below) was impressive!

My view for the first night:
0_0.jpg

The group held a good distance from one another:

The sun rose and the yellow Rebel took a spot in front of me:
0_0.jpg

The YELLOW sun is really bright here....:
0_0.jpg

I had a few opportunities to take pictures of my truck so here's one of many:
0_0.jpg

This side of the map gave us some great sights:
0_0.jpg

And some interesting weather:
0_0.jpg

The convoy rolling slowly:
0_0.jpg

Aaaaand this spot had a lot of waiting as it was challenge number 2:
0_0.jpg

Believe it or not, they're not taking pictures of those trying to climb a nearby hill - they're taking pictures of a man taking a bath in the river. Creeps!
0_0.jpg

Most, if not all the group finally got on even ground:
0_0.jpg

And back to a bumpy ride:
0_0.jpg

"Goddamnit, my wife is having an affair with my best-friend!"
0_0.jpg

"sh*t, forgot my cigarettes."
0_0.jpg

Another shot of my ride for the first half. I had around 5 different vehicles picked out for this meet.

While waiting I had a lot of time to take pics which was nice:

This was even nicer:

My 2nd ride for the meet:

I met up with the stock Mesa and he almost made that one:

Pictures:


Thinking Tom is seen here with his wife in the back. We're not sure what he's planning to do with her as we quickly moved on:
0_0.jpg

Cops tried to find Thinking Tom but failed:
0_0.jpg

"Damnit, Harold, this is the 3rd patrol car you've gotten the seats wet!"
0_0.jpg

I like the Rancher a bit busted up:
0_0.jpg

We met again on flat ground:
0_0.jpg

We did a few jumps and had a good time here. I don't know why my character looks like it wants to kill itself:
0_0.jpg

My 3rd ride for the...damnit!
0_0.jpg

A cool thing we did was racing where 3 trucks drove as fast as they could up a mountain to reach the host first. It was creative and tons of fun!
0_0.jpg

The Bison was surprisingly good:
0_0.jpg

Mostly everyone at the top:
0_0.jpg

"Group picture! No one? Guys? Okay..."
0_0.jpg

Night fell and our path was blocked by fire:
0_0.jpg

"sh*t, man, I don't know what happened. One moment I'm sitting on my chair outside doing a report on GirlsGoneWild and next thing I know I feel this intense heat. I'm thinking, 'holy sh*t, I came early again', but nope; just a damn helicopter that fell from the sky next to my feet."
0_0.jpg

Waiting for the host - I got about 8 pictures like this:
0_0.jpg

Can you see the next challenge?
0_0.jpg

It's where that green Dubsta is! It was a really good one:
0_0.jpg

Hank is shown here taking a nap before...
0_0.jpg

POWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!!!!
0_0.jpg

This was near impossible:
0_0.jpg

But the damn fancy Huntley made it:
0_0.jpg

I had no clue you could lose that door:
0_0.jpg

The Swift providing water rescues:
0_0.jpg

Far into our journey, we're currently in the woods. We'll probably find Thinking Tom's wife here:
0_0.jpg

The terrain here was my favorite:
0_0.jpg

At this point Sandking's were brought out:
0_0.jpg

And made an awesome picture. This is my favorite shot from the whole meet:
0_0.jpg

So I lost most of my trucks at that point and resorted to that thing behind me:
0_0.jpg



Now I don't have the first two pictured but here are the winners for the following categories:

BEST TECHNICAL DRIVER - x Ferrari F1 x who was driving backwards for a good half of the meet.

HOW THE f*ck DID YOU MAKE IT UP - steve dogg 51 for climbing stuff that Sandkings could climb with some difficulty while using a Huntley S. Special mention to TCooper03 for walking up a cliff.


BEST PERFORMING OFFROADER - TCooper03.
0_0.jpg

"Hey, want me to spank your monkey?
"Come on, baby, you know you want some of this!"
"Disgusting."
0_0.jpg

The last trucks left at the end...

And that motocross:

With a smile, I end this adventure. STOP!

What the hell is wrong with the wheels of my Dubsta?!

 

Awesome pics! So you found out how to post them. I love seeing different point of views and those pics made my night. Again; great meet! Also, you can put up to 40 pictures per post so the double post on your part wasn't necessary (you'll know for next time). :p

 

Wow, so weird to see myself in some of them. Like the ones with the Rancher on the other side of the river - that's where I got some pictures that I posted. It's just bizarre to see myself in pictures as I'm used to be on the other side of the camera. I don't think I'll ever get used to it.

Thanks again to all who joined in and thanks for the feedback. Can take this now and make the next one better. I did get a bit frustrating when people would consitantly try and blast up a technical section when there were plenty of other routes a little less challenging to the left or right. It about finding your level based on skill and you truck spec there is no shame in taking an easier route and you get just as much of a buzz from the smaller hills next time help with the flow of the event which was not a good as the first an have two attempts and then look for another way.

 

the pictures above are amazing well done to the winner of the categories who will get priority invites to the around Los Santos challenge.

 

some pics of my own.

Hey guys, great meet last night. Had a blast! Looking forward to the next go around. Sorry I couldnt pull all the way till the end, was getting to be 1am (est) and work was growing ever closer lol got a few pictures of the meet myself that I'll share at the end. Was thinking of a few things to add to the list of inputs... Smaller helicopter? I noticed the chopper you were in was pretty bulky around the river area. Also was thinking, most of the challenges were steep vertical cliffs, I saw a few medium incline longer length hill climb type deals along the way. The smaller valleys up the mountains have the rock and tree obstacles. We could do a run up the hill to see who can get the farthest without getting stuck or hung up. A technical obstacle course if you will. Special thanks to Steve dogg 51 for starting this. It's a nice change from your usual car meets.

I'm down to join y'all's next meet. Was cruisin around today and found a nice parking area if we want to stop and take pics midway through. It's the rebel radio station located right next to the construction "racetrack" in sandy shores.
