Choices - trail choices that is

We went to our cabin this weekend. We arrived at the trailhead around 10:30 pm. The sun was gone and it got dark quickly. We unloaded the 4-wheelers in the dark, turned the headlights on and proceeded down the 3-mile dirt trail to our property on the lake.

This trail can be difficult in full daylight, but at night it's downright treacherous. Tim got stuck and we had to maneuver my 4-wheeler around to pull him out with the tow strap. Here are portions of the trail in the daylight.
Much of it is nice dirt path, but much of it (especially after a very rainy summer) is like this!

Choices. Which of the terrible paths do you choose? And to make it more difficult to choose, the paths can change from trip to trip depending on who else has been down them and the amount of rainfall that has fallen since the time before.
Sometimes you have to just choose the lesser evil. They're all bad.

Disclaimer: Tim always makes the choices, I just follow along. That way when it goes horribly wrong, it's not my fault!
