Yeah it was definitely a fun time. Sunday was almost more fun I thought, but the trails we did were way tighter. I spent a lot of time against trees, and I was able to avoid 95% of potential forestry interaction. Every panel on my rig now has tree rash except the hood. If my rig flexed better it might have been easier to stay away from the trees.

All in all, it was a great time. The only casualties were minor, Todd's anti-wrap shackle became a "Z" but he was able to hammer it back. My driver front caliper came off and the rim kept it in place. Somehow the pins worked their way out in a nasty mud hole. Phil had some temp issues due to an air bubble but it was handled easily. The guy who kinda runs the place and built the trails was cool and you could tell he loved wheeling. They let us leave our rigs and trailers over night since we said we were coming back the next day.

My cell phone doesn't do very good with pictures, but I try. And you'll notice there's none of my rig in action... haha. Greg has some video and pictures too, I'm interested to see them as well as your video and pics.

I'd be up for it, or doing Rocks & Valleys instead of Silver Lake would be fine with me also. However, if I remember correctly Gilbert is working on acquiring more land which will put them at 2,000 acres, if I heard what was said right.

Lame. That trip isn't about the 'wheeling' it is about the togetherness of the club and getting shitty ass hammered all weekend! :lol:

Yeah i don't think you can do away with Dune Bash... That's nonsense...

In addition to dune bash we can wheel at a park or something.

Also, some of you fucksticks better get something running that you can wheel at said wheeling events :D

I agree Lando.

Thanks for posting the pics. Now we just need Kyle, Moon boots and Brian to do the same.

I know, it’s so hard to get people to commit to stuff. This trip was a TON of fun. Not just the wheeling but hanging out. I mean, “ok, now its locked in.” Anyone that was on the fence about coming really missed out.

I had Whit face book people that I didn’t have phone numbers for anymore. Hell Mike P response made it seem like I was doing something in the U.P. :???:

hahaha! I was showing people at work that video. CLASSIC!

A winter trip would be tits. Staying at the Lakeside Motel and Cottages would be cool. I bumped into a guy Monday night that owned 10 acres with a house next door to Rocks and Valleys and he was asking me about where people stay when they go there. He asked where he might be able to post the house for rent for people interested in going to R&V, and I told him GL4x4 or Pirate. I dropped the ball on just getting his info myself, but I am always creeped out when people randomly hear me talking about something and butt in to the conversation. Seemed like an OK guy, but still. If we could rent that house with the property right next door, that would be cool.
