edmonton and area

to all you jeepers in the edmonton area. i am thinking we should get a winter jeep run going sometime in november. im not sure exactly where as i am in edson, but if some people in edmonton know of some places maybe we can set up a run. something not too extreme that some fairly basic rigs can run

I haven't done any wheelin' around that area - yet.

I might be persuaded to bring my YJ up for a run, if I get it fixed in time

Go and visit your local PrincessAuto - they have tow-hooks for you (rated 10,000lbs), snatch-straps (get a 2" x 30' and a 3" x ???? ) and mount a hitch to the rear with a shackle-mount and you are good to go.

My Jeep is getting closer - hope to have the 305 mounted tomorrow - finish the springs, install the compressor and second battery, hook the winch to the secondary battery and I should be laughing till I start rebuilding my 350

sounds good guys we just have to figure out when and where. i would say edson would be a good area but i cant think of any good trails to go on with very many people and that would make for a good day of wheelin

I'm from St. Albert as well, and I know of another guy who doesn't frequent here that would come too sometime.

My uncle has a farm just outside of Edson there that we may be able to wheel on a bit. He has a decent gravel pit, the river and a few really good trails on his property. One trail was built as an emergency access path to the CN track that borders my uncles land and when it was built a long time ago, it would get big CAT's stuck, so the whole trail is just a series of huge mud pits that have totally eaten our quads before. Even with Vampires and winches, the quads have a really tough time making it sometimes because the pits go from treeline to treeline across the trail and you can't avoid the deep spots. I haven't done it in my XJ yet because I just finished my lift and tires (4.5" and 33's) but I am eager to get out there. Especially after all this rain and light snow...

As long as everyone has towpoints and 1 person has a winch we should be fine. He has a tractor that we can use it things get really bad too though.

I don't know if there's enough terrain to make for a full day though. That trail goes a little ways, but if things are going easy it can be done pretty quick...

Also, there's a ton of good trails around Hinton. My other uncle lives out there and restores old Willy's jeeps as a hobby. He has a few that he has setup for trails though and he spends most of his freetime just wheeling right around town there. I'm sure he'd gladly show us some great trails. I used to quad around there when I was younger (both set of grandparents lived out there) and the trails I rode were a bit tight for Jeeps, but there's a wide variety of great terrain. And an old crashed airplane up in the hills that was fun to play in.

Just another thought for where to wheel.

Have you checked out 4Wheeler.ca ??? Lots of western Canada people are visiting there now, but its based in Calgary, so the amount of Calgary vs. Country is like 90:1 ..

It took over where BogginFreaks died off at..
