I am getting some vibes in the driveline after the trip. I think I might have come down too hard off of a rock ... only vibrates from like 20 to 30mph. Hmmm
I told ya didn't I?!?

That sucks though...

You can always remove the drive shaft and keep it as a spare...then order one locally or from Tom Woods (which was freaking quick at shipping and top notch quality)

Switzerland Trail: November 4th

After loudly learning you have to be stopped to switch into low in front of a bunch of people I had a good time.

First offroad experience. switzerland trail is kinda boring but the spurs off the sides make for a fun time. Found some cool spots and went down my first "obstacle"

Here's a video:

Oh yea those rocks were quite pointy

Congrats on breaking your offroading virgin bubble I know exactly which rock face you were going down, I have a video of doing it from a few weeks ago with snow on it...Try going up it next time

There are tons of spurs on the trail and some interesting mines to visit if you're into that kind of thing. Some of the spurts get pretty interesting in the winter with the snow

Moody Hill Trail

Well the family and I finally got out for trail this weekend. We ran Moody for the first time and went from it being a family day out to picking up a group of three rigs out on their first trail. Only found two obstacles that from what I had read on the trail were pretty washed out. Fun time and met some new people. Going to hit Crystal next weekend. Here are the pics:

Yea me and my buddy tried about 5 times to get up this one spur but kept sliding back into a left hand side ditch. I decide to stop before I slide to hard and gave myself some body damage.


i was gonna try going up it but then I decided I need to get to work with the jeep

I did not get up to crystal in time it was getting dark. Let me know if you want to run it as that is what I am planning for this next weekend.

Later,

Don

I'll let you know, all depends on when/if I shoot an elk over the next few days.

BTW the quarry is near the top of Moody, if you didn't know.

Nope I am a dumn *ss. I thought that the quary was on crystal mountain. I guess I'll have to run that again so I can run the Quary.

Thanks,
