Went offroading today. Started out this morning when I went to scope the wetness of the trail. It was pretty slippery but nothing that couldn't be handled. Here are the pictures that I got from going this morning






Met a guy from my Jeep club at 3 and it had started raining heavier during the day. We got there and rode around for a while and slipped around every where.





After that, at about 5:30 a friend of mine called me and asked me if I wanted to go with him to test out his new truck. It is an 85 (I think) Silverado on a 12 inch lift and I think 40s (they look smaller though). We got up there at about 6:30 and I was going down through the ruts in the first part and I lost the front end and and I slid down into the bank and drug it down where I hit the root to a tree that was exposed.



Friends truck:

Ryan's future mods include a fuel cell. He ran out of gas pulling into the station. The looks we got when I hooked up the tow rope and started pulling were priceless.

I took a friend of mine to nimblewill gap yesterday for some wheeling, turns out it was snowing up there









We found a trail off to the side that looked pretty rough so we decided to hit it and see what it was like. Turns out it was rough enough for me to rip a muffler off
