Thanksgiving weekend trail ride(s)

Post by Jimny » Sun Nov 26, 2006 5:33 am

This Thanksgiving weekend a friend came down with his wife and kid to go 4 wheeling in my jeeps, so I let them drive the Sami and I drove the LJ20, we found a LOT of cool trails to go on down the road about 4 miles from my house in the National Forest, BUT it is hunting season so we had to wear the bright Hunters Orange hats, we didn't want to end up on someones mantle!

Both rigs did very well (of course) and so on the way back we were going through our last trail of the day, I was leading the adventure and came upon this mud hole that looked like it could be a tad bit deep, all the other holes before then wasn't deep at all, kind of boring, so I went through it, and sure enough it was a little bit deep and very muddy, it took a couple of try's since the mud was THICK and my axles was pushing mud, also the water was high enough that I could hear the cooling fan hitting the water, but I made it, of course my feet were wet, so then my friend went through it and had no problems at all, he did it on the first try, it was his wife taking the pics so she wanted to go through it now that she saw that she wasn't going to get wet, so she got in the rig and he went around the mud hole on a side trail where everyone was going around to miss this hole but he didn't go slow to check to see how deep it was and... well the pics speaks for themselves. He did get it out on his own, he use to 4wd years ago and knew how to get out of a jam. It took a while though.

There is probably 100 miles of trails back in them hills.

So that's why there is big holes in Suzy's floor boards, drainage:)

LOL! I will have to remove the carpet in the Sami now, I had to cut slits into the carpet so the water would drain out. :roll:
