This part doesn't sound so good , thankfully y'all didnt run into anyone coming the opposite direction . The rest of it sounds like a trailer dragging paradise .

Woulda gotten Kimbo's heart rate up some for sure.
With just the Jeep and your lil trailer it isn't bad. My trailer is about semi width. Was steep too, poor truck was doing no more than 10 mph in first gear with the pedal through the floor

Lol, still trying to figure out this phone app. Sorry to interrupt your thread.

Swamp Lake is a fun trail. Ran half of it last year. Needed gears and lockers at the time.

Ya camped out there for a few days about a month ago. Gorgeous area, the trail is awesome. I worked a lil harder than the other guys, being on 33's.
Just got back from taking the kids camping for the first time at strawberry lake. this last weekend.

Looks like a great place to camp, Art. What are the overnight temperatures there this time of year?

Hey Art are you going to be there for the new trail in CB on 9/21?

Wheeled with Curtis at Motino and he told me about it.
