First time off-road

So the girlfriend and I went off-roading in the Jeep for the first time up at the Mounds in Mt. Morris, MI. We were the only Jeep there, and there were only 2 kids on an ATV and a dirt bike, so we pretty much had it to ourselves. I'm very happy that we had our recovery gear, being that we went alone.

I got a little muddy:

Looks like you had fun. One bit of advice and please keep it in mind. Never go alone. In the event you get stuck or hurt there would be nobody to assit you. Im sure others will chime in as well, but I know of a few guys in my area that have got hurt and well help was only 45minutes away.

Well, we just got her cleaned off, and not a single scratch, or tear in the top, so I'm pretty happy with the results of today. Next time I'm definitely not going by myself, that way at the end of the day, I'm not the only one with mud in my boots .
