http://www.dualsport.info/rigs/tj/gps/index.htm shows a few pics of the GPS set-up, which uses the same roll bar mount. Also I use the ram SWIVEL arm (the short one) and a ball mount with a flat plate and stud on it (a lot like a tripod for a camera)

I haven't run Kaner Flats trail in the snow but I've been up it several times, once in the pitch black darkness around mid-night. Even the guys with open diffs didn't have problems. But this was during the summer in the dry. There are certainly some very steep sections of trail that if wet I could see being a real challenge. To say nothing if there was snow covering the trail. Plus, I think one section has been re-routed slightly to avoid making some mud pits worse, IIRC, the new route goes between two trees that I did need to winch through last time. But who knows, things could have changed since I last ran the trail.

I'd definitely recommend that at least someone in the group (never wheel alone) have a winch, no mater what trail you're running.





Deltabravo . . . very cool photos. I like the one of the two trees at sunset. Earlier this summer my club did a Naches-Manastash Ridge-Liberty run over the course of a 3 day, 2 night expedition. It was a blast.

Perhaps next year the JF group might get together for another such run?

Thanks lupinsea, I've read all your trip reports, awesome. On our 1st time out wheeling, I lost my manhood chickening out on the 1st uphill right after the KF trail #s change. We were solo at the time. After I backed down, 2 willys just putterd up! Embarrassing! They couldv'e had lockers though. It'd be great to get out together.

Ha. . . funny.

Some guys from my club and I were at Reiter yesterday, too. Partly to do more GPS mapping. I'm getting a pretty nicely developed trail map.


Jonwood, what rig were you. We passed many that day, maybe we saw you there. I was in a yellow TJ with a black and metallic blue TJ with me. We hit some of the lower trails around Reiter Pond and south of Sand Hill in the woods just to map them, then I got myself entangled at the northern end of the Rock Garden, then we did another trail that returned us to the Rock Garden.

After that we hit Lake Isabel trail. Played in May Creek at bit at the lower water crossings. Then had to pull off to the side for 15 minutes as about 10 Jeeps came down the mountain towing some guy's busted Jeep.

After they passed we reached the end of the trail and hiked up to Lake Isabel itself. That was the first time I had been up there after running that trail for 2 years.

A few pictures below. . . but check out the full report in the link above.



Click to enlarge.














Freedom5, I'm still not sure where the Rino Land trail is. I may have been on it but I'm not sure. I know we didn't hit Sac Up. We did run the Index Wall trail in the dark. Good thing, too, because we came across some goof in a white pick-up truck stuck up to his wheel wells in a muddy tank trap. No winch, no shovel, no other people out with him, and no one around. We winched him out. What a goof.

Dang, sorry I missed you. There was A TON of Jeepers and others out there with their 4x4 rigs. There was a bunch in Monroe I saw, a bunch more in Sultan, more in Gold Bar . . . all heading toward Reiter.

Then all the rigs I saw on the trail too.

Hm. . . your rig looks sort of familiar. I might have passed you on the gravel road to the Index Wall Trail at one point? Or somewhere. . . wait! Maybe it WAS on the power line trail.

BTW, what's the best line for getting through that rock in your photo? Last time I tried to set my tire on the low side of the groove but I think I missed things by about 10" and my balance wasn't quite right. . . .



Photo from mid october


I think I should have been further up the rock so that the difference in angles between all the facets wouldn't have been as severe. There's a notch toward the up hill side that I think i should have placed my tire in. Then, as I'd be hitting the second rock slope things wouldn't have been as dramatic. I actually have the articulation, I think, but it's not apparent in in this photo (again, due to balance issues).
