K2 - Texas Rock Crawling Lives!
Story by Nolen Grogan
Photos by Nolen Grogan, Bruce Mitchell, Todd Kaderabek

 

Last year, South Central Rock Crawling enthusiasts were blown away with news that Katemcy Rocks Off Road Park was closing at the end of the season. For nearly a decade, the Kruse Family and Shain Chapman had hosted some of the finest crawling in the country. When word came down from the landowner that the party was over, rock crawlers from all over poured in to Katemcy Texas to enjoy one last ride on the unique pink granite trails and to listen to the squeaky windmill under a blanket of stars. Behind the scenes, Randy Kruse and Shain Chapman hit the ground running looking for another place to open a park. Randy tells me he wore out 3 pairs of boots looking at potential sites.

The new site, dubbed K2, is about 18 miles south and west of the old Katemcy Rocks site. The new location is nearly the same acreage, but at K2, more of the property is usable for wheeling. Instead of large domes of granite, K2 has a series of sharp ridges throughout the East side of the property with rough points. On the Western side, pasture land blends with rocks allowing our smaller tired brethren some nice places to explore without too much chance of body damage.

Finding K2 is a snap. Just 6 miles west of Mason, Texas, on Hwy 29 just past the aptly named town of Grit, you will see the old Katemcy Rocks metal sign on the left. Pulling into the property, you will immediately see that Randy and Shain learned a lot of lessons from the old park. As you drive in through an impressive grove of Live Oak, the park spreads out in front of you. Since taking possession of the property in February, the gang has installed a well-packed RV accessible road, Office, Pavilion, Guest Cabins and a concession building. RV hookups and showers are still in the works. Primitive camping is 10x better at the new park, with a beautiful grove of Live Oak trees surrounded by a creaked that kept my kids occupied for 2 days straight.

Since taking possession of the property, local 4x4 groups have been pitching in to work on the facilities and the trails. In just 2 short months, the amount of work in camp only slightly overshadows the amount of new trails that have been cut. I could not believe how much was already marked with trail names when I took my first trip out on the rocks. My group snuck out of the property on the Northeast access trail and immediately jumped into a hard trail called Hannibal Lector. This trail is a mix of vertical ledges, tight turns and boulders. BIG boulders. The trail was nicely marked with yellow reflective tape on the rocks. With so little traffic on the trail to date, picking a line was up to the driver in most tight spots as there were few, if any marks on the rocks. Our small group moved through the trail slowly as we often has to climb out of our buggies to scout ahead. Looking over to the East, I saw a HUGE group of Land Cruisers making their way slowly down the Fence Line trail. This trail is the perimeter trail and unlike the Aggie Highway at the old Katemcy Rocks, this trail is not for the faint of heart or the lightly modified vehicle. Unlike most times when it is dry as a bone in this part of Texas, record rains this winter has the trails covered with mud in spots that was a show stopped for all but the most highly modified rigs.

After we dropped down from Hannibal Lector, we wound out way through the center of the property. Big boulders surround this access trail. There is seriously no limit to the number of options you have at this place. Every rock is a potential climb. We rounded the corner and I see a group of spectators perched high on the rocks watching some action. We pointed our group toward them and blazed our own path to them hitting a constant stream of refrigerator sized boulders along the way. As we arrived where the others were we got to watch the last vehicle in at group of highly modified full-bodied Cruisers make a sweet technical climb. Shane Morrell, aka Killerpee was spotting Dusty Lawhon and they put on a great show for us. We hit a few rocks with this group and they sent us back across to the west side to the swimming hole with a description of some nice walls to climb. We lost one in our group to a bad air compressor so my buddy Pat Holland and I went on our own.

The rocks in this section were tall and steep. I tried a few super steep climbs and the combo of red label Krawlers and rough, dry granite allowed for some seriously sick climbs. Pat and his wife Debbie stuck to me as we made quick work of this section and went on a sick game of follow-the-leader back the way we came. The options to this on the new property are endless. We would pick a hard crack line and then jump on a vertical then drop over into a flat grassy section that was littered with rocks the size of your desk.

We ran alone for quite a ways. This is saying a lot since there were nearly 100 vehicles signed up for the Lone Star Land Cruiser Roundup. It is amazing how "big" a 400 acre park can be if the terrain is right. Finally we happened upon a fairly large group of built rigs blazing a new trail along the Fence Line trail. we weaved our way past them and were heading back for camp when I saw a totally sick near vertical climb that was marked with reflective tape. I nosed my buggy up to feel it out and decided I needed to get out and scope it out before I committed to the climb. Just as I got out, this crazy dude topped the hill and started telling me that I basically did not have a hair on my arse if I did not get back in the buggy and hammer down. After I crawled it, I stopped to talk to this interesting character. He calls himself The Ripper and was the first one up the climb, therefore he was able to name it. Therefore, when you get to K2 and you want to try something sick, just get directions to Ripper Trail and you won't be disappointed.

Rip was kind enough to lead me around from there a bit and show me another great climb he cut on the back side of Hannibal Lector. This trail he named Kowboy's Arsehole for some reason and again, I was not disappointed. Thanks Rip for the guide. By then it was time to go back to camp and check on my family. The kids were still knee deep in the creek mining for quartz and my wife was taking advantage of a full AT&T signal and was getting some paperwork done on her laptop. Night time came slow as Texas as Mr Brisket from Bonham TX fed us and Lone Star Land Cruisers entertained us with a great raffle, free beer and a band under the new pavilion. Word of a killer storm approaching had some people battening down the hatches in the campground, but most were just enjoying the warm weather and the great music.

At about 4 am the weather took a serious turn for the worse and straight line winds of near 70 mph tore through camp from the north bringing with it a 40 degree temperature swing. We went from shorts and t-shirts to 20 degree wind chills and snow in less than 12 hours. Numerous tents were a total loss in the morning and debris was scattered in the trees all over camp. Luckily it was only property that was damaged when the beleaguered campers emerged from their tents and campers at dawn. The sleet and wind put an end to some of the Roundup attendees, but the remaining 50 people moved to the town of Mason and enjoyed a John D Hale show at the Steak House. It was a great save and everyone really enjoyed the change of venue out of the horrible weather.

While crazy weather changes are not uncommon in central Texas, they are certainly not the norm. I have spent many more star-filled nights with the K Rocks crew than bad ones. I cannot wait to get back and cut my own trails. There is a ton of area left to explore and you can bet the K Rocks crew will take great care of you.

See you on the trail!

K2 Progress Update

The fence around the campground is almost complete and most of the major clearing in the camp ground has been done via a skid loader.  The rest of the clearing will have to be done by hand.
 
The Concession stand was erected this weekend. Oh did I mention there is going to be a full time concession stand at K2?  Breakfast Burritos/Tacos in the morning along with sandwiches and Manifold burritos for the trail.  Burgers, fries, and sandwiches for lunch; and a full BBQ meal for dinner every night. They are going to add things as we go but that's first on the list

The guys will start erecting the pavilion this next week I hope. Plan is to have a 26x60 pitch roof center with 2 - 10 x 60 sides, to make a total of 46 x 60 pavilion that has some eye appeal vs. the flat shed roof at old K-rocks, plus it will be a lot bigger. After they get the trusses built we will have a work weekend to put up the trusses/lathes/tin in one weekend. Should need 10 or so folks to do that and if more show up then the rest could trim up the trees in the campground. Call /e-mail me if you want to come down and help.

We are in the final stages of planning for the bridge so that should happen soon.

Approximately 4-6 trails have been cut and more in the planning stage.

Dogs

Dogs have become a problem at the last few events at Katemcy forcing us to make some changes. We have had a large number of complaints of loose dogs urinating on campsites, scaring people, eating food & trash from other campsites, barking all night and otherwise annoying other guests. That is not pleasant environment for others. While we have many dog owners that are very conscientious about their pets and keep them leashed, others are more lax in the monitoring perhaps unaware of what their pet is doing. As a result, we have decided that from this point forward, if you wish to bring your dog to Katemcy you must make arrangements with either Shain or Randy in advance. If your dog is allowed, you will be required to keep your dog LEASHED AT ALL TIMES. This includes in camp. This is where most of the complaints have originated. If your dog is found loose, or others complain of your animal urinating on their camp, incessant barking, or related problems, you will be asked to leave forfeiting your admission fee(s) or you will have to make arrangements to have the dog immediately removed from the premises.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Lone Star Early Bronco Round Up, April 20-22, 2007


Broncos, Broncos, everywhere!
Sunny skies and 75 early broncos greeted us at Katemcy on this 8th Annual Lone Star Early Bronco Round Up. Everything from extreme, rock-rash covered rigs to pristine showroom looking EBs were here for this three day event. You could roll your rig on the trail [pic 2] or leave it in camp for people to ogle over [Pic 3]. Some folks brought extra broncos with them just in case their first rig broke! Good idea, Kim. Sorry about the 2nd rig too!

Vendors such as James Duff broncos, BC Broncos, Toms Broncos Parts, PSC Motorsports, and Wild Child, showed up and wheeled with the Lone Star Early Bronco gang and their friends. Dozens of other vendors donated items to Saurday night's raffle which was full of great stuff that I got cheated out of!! Paul sold me all the loser tickets!

Suzi Duff didn't bring down her family's famous "Hi Ho Silver" bronc, but Chris Towery was glad to give Suzi a ride in his big purple "Barney." I'm sure Suzi was quite impressed with Chris' driving when he laid his bronc over on Suzi's side! The sand drags were as popular as ever this year with lots of folks running their broncs, their tow rigs, or their buddy's rig if he wasn't watching. After some debate the sand drag officials declared Kirk Jorden, running his "buzzin' half dozen" turbo-charged straight six cylinder, as overall winner...or was that weiner...I don't remember.

Saturday evening after a full plate of BBQ, I'm not sure who fell asleep quicker, the 20 plus little kids or their exhausted parents. It was a lot of fun for everyone. Great job LSEB!!

Moab Easter Jeep Safari, 2007





Shain, Randy and the crews from
West Texas Offroad and Baertrax made their annual pilgrimage to Moab, Utah for the 41st Annual Easter Jeep Safari. A couple of Katemcy regulars, Brain Purkerson and Kevin Johnson, brought their Rubicons and joined the fun for a few days. Duane Smith and Claudia Crow for Get Bent! videos showed up with cameras the day we hit 'Behind the Rocks' and, hopefully, got some good footage for another top notch DVD!

Earlier in the week on Hell's Revenge, Kenneth Wright showed us how to roll on your lid in one of the hot tubs, Toby Harrell showed us how to nearly lose it and toast your rig (as he did 2 years earlier) in the big hot tub, and we spied one of Jeep's new JK concept trucks out wheeling [top pic]. Russ and Christy Baer invited us along on the
Crawl Magazine media run where we had a good time hanging out with the Klein family (www.we-rock.cc) and some of the W.E. Rock and U.R.O.C. teams. Randy, Shain and Russ played on Upper Hellderado and Shain managed to take the worst line [bottom pic]. This was another week that just blazed by too fast with great four wheeling, fun and friends.

Lone Star Land Cruiser Round-Up, March 14-18

This year's annual Toyota Land Cruiser event was another huge success with over 70 rigs, multiple vendors, the FC Cruiser Team, and the best damn band in country music...the John D. Hale Band!! The weather was great and tons of folks showed up. This year the landcruiser crowd may have set a Katemcy record with cruisers from 17 different states from Oregon to Florida! The Oregon boys from Metal Tech 4x4 trailered from Portland, toasted a trailer in Utah, bought a new trailer, and kept driving to Texas. And they vowed to do it again next year! (well maybe not the trailer buying part). Check out some of their photos at HERE. A host of other photos are on the net on sites such as the LSLC site and Pirate 4x4. And no, I didn't roll over on the start of waterfall trail on purpose. The ever-so-kind land cruiser crowd wouldn't pull me back over until they all wasted a half a roll of film taking pictures of my rig to post on land cruiser sites : ) Doc Troutman kept with tradition and did his annual 'dance' during the concert Friday night. Scary! I'm afraid to see what next year brings. Great event and great folks! Look for a full story in Toyota Trails. We're ready for the next one!!

Baertrax Customer Run


Well last weekend, our good buddies Russ and Christy Baer of BAERTRAX in Dallas held the 3rd Annual Customer Appreciation Run here at K-Rocks. We had well over a hundred rigs show up to wheel this weekend, and they were treated to some fantastic Texas springtime weather--about 85 degrees, a nice cool breeze all day, and no rain until late Sunday afternoon at the conclusion of the event.

Of course, Russ Baer had to test out his newest roll cage. Clint didn't seem to mind that his wife Dana got flipped on her lid as she was riding passenger with Russ.

In additon to wheelin, local musician Spider Johnson performed on stage Saturday night, and the Baers treated their customers to a free steak dinner, catered by Leonard Wilson. Then later on in the evening, Randy, Elaine, and Wenie got on stage to sing, accompanied by Chris Cloud's daughter Isabella on tambourine.

Russ and Christy had this to say after the event:

We want to thank everyone for coming--we had a wonderful time. As always, the wheeling was spectacular and so were our hosts--Randy & Pam Kruse and family. It was all "Greatness".

Russ & Christy Baer

It was a great event--if you were there, we hope you had a great time too. And if you weren't there...well, you missed out! So be sure to make it out to the next Katemcy Rocks event, the
Memorial Day 5th Birthday Bash.

Katemcy Rocks 5th Birthday Bash

Memorial Day Weekend
May 26 - 28, 2006
Limited to the first 150 Rigs to signup


CLICK HERE for details and the required sign up sheet.



Shain and I were talking the other day and we have been open for 5 years now. So we are going to have a party and celebrate. Memorial Day Weekend (May 26-28) Friday, Saturday, Sunday will be the date. We will open for camping Thursday night and then wheel Friday, Saturday, Sunday (wheeling till 3:00 p.m. Sunday). Friday night we will provide a Chili and Beans dinner. Saturday night we will provide a BBQ meal. We will also have a kick ass band playing Saturday night -- the John D. Hale Band (
www.johndhaleband.com) from Missouri. They are featured on XM Radio Outlaw Country and one of the best new country bands we've heard in a long time. They played here during the Toyota Land Cruiser Event in March and were so good we begged them to come back. We are tentatively having music Friday night as well but have not got the official okay from the other musician. We will have a package deal including wheeling, event t-shirt, meals, music and camping. Limited 150 rigs. So better sign up early.

Thanks,
Randy

Lone Star Early Bronco Club Spring Round Up

The 7th annual Lone Star Early Bronco Club Spring Round Up event was a big success! Tons of vintage Ford Early Bronco 4x4s showed up, breaking all sorts of club attendance records. Over 80 rigs showed up to hit the trails here at Katemcy Rocks, plus they had a huge raffle with lots of great prizes from vendors. As you probably know, this is the 40th anniversary of the Early Bronco, so there are a lot of big EB runs being held throughout the country this year, and we're proud to have been able to host such a great event.
