Do you run stock driveshafts? No one plans to damage theirs but if you do, they're kind of like an aluminum can, once they get dented they lose most of their strength. I bring a spare rear one for longer trips because I've seen some trip ending damage.

Good to know! Everyone makes that trail sound impossibly hard. Y'all must be good at picking lines. I've seen people candy cane their driveshafts on far less intense trails. :cheer!

The trail takes concentration. It's the trees more than the rocks. I rode motorcycles for 10 hours a day in another life and have about 1/2 million miles under my belt and that absolutely translates to being able to pick proper lines.

Congrats. It's amazing how long it takes them to send out the badges. I'm guessing that their badge fulfillment staff consists of one blind monk in Tibet.
