its a pretty cool place to wheel considering how close it is. lots of trash and dropped off stolen rigs though... what happened to the white sami that flipped??

ya the trash sucks, but you get over it. and the sami turned out find. he lost a back fender, mirror, and bent up the tub in the back but he does his own fab work, so he is still building it up even better

Where is this at? Is there anywhere in that area big enough and flat enough for an airport? LW sure isn't.

There is an abandoned drug runner "airfield" out in the LW area. Thats what he is referring to.

haha ya i think its near Lawerance welks. but the areas where we go you dont usually see the other houses or are even close to the houses. and yes there are some areas that are flat enough for an air strip. there is one area where one of the flat areas was made into a motocross track


Here is a sat view of the area

yup. i know exactly where you are talking about. and if you go to the far southwest side you start to get into this 'residential' area. im really not joking when i say i think it was a meth lab....or a grow house. either way, we didnt want to find out and immedietly turned around. that and it would have been rude to go wheeling around in someones back yard. god it pissed me off when peopel did that on my property back home!
