The guy that died down there memorial day weekend was a buddy of mine.

Wellsille is its own little animal. There is everything from rocks, mud, jumps, you name it. But, there is also a ton of idiots that are down there. Mainly alcohol induced stupidity. The big weekends are generally the worst, Memorial day, July 4th, Labor day, and the likes. Off weekends, especially later in the summer once everyone has broken all their crap is typically better.

I've seen vehicles flipped, burned, and scavanged for parts if left out in the woods for as little as a couple hours, (like if you head into town for parts or whatever).

Don't get me wrong, Wellsville can be a ton of fun. You just have to be super careful and aware of whats going on.

We could do jeepskool I was just trying to get out of having to pay to into a place to go. x415fsx are you up for some wheeling on the 2nd? I know from here to akron is a bit of a drive but thought id ask. Also do you know of another spot other then what we mentioned?

Im actually down in Canton now, so add another 30 minutes onto that commute. lol. I just bought my Bucket-o-Mishaps back in late september, so I honestly haven't been wheeling much at all. Just a couple little empty lots near where i live and my parents house. Nothing that you couldn't completely cover in about 15 minutes.

I have some residual school funds coming in here sometime VERY soon i hope to patch up some problems before I really go beat on it. Mainly need to get the exhaust redone (mud up in the cat apparently slows a slow vehicle down even more, who knew?), cam and crank sensors, an ac delete, and a new spare. I'm hoping to have it all done before the 4th of july, but im starting to have my doubts right now. But I'm def down for something when everything is good and sturdy.

Lol on the mud part, last field I tore through I found a chunk(and by chunk I mean it was as big as my fat ps3) piece of mud on the roof of the soft top.Not too sure how it got there but I had the peddle on the floor trying not to get stuck, so my guess is 40 in a soggy grass field will do it. But kool glad to have you aboard when your back up and running. I know myself before I get anywhere i gotta figure out this wobble I still have. I replaced the front left wheel bearing but still a wobble and i cant help but wonder now if i threw another belt in a tire.

If so that will be the 2 out of the 4 mudders I bought are papper weights so If that is the case ill have 2 street tires and 2 mudders and no spear, ugh need more money......want new tires.
