Cleghorn Trail!

by on Dec.29, 2008, under Random

Okay, I know people will tell me it was a bad idea, but even without a spare I went wheeling!  I did at least go with someone that did have a spare that I could use if things got to that point.   Gladly there was no tire carnage on the trip and we got to wheel in the snow!  The first parts of the trail were harmless fire roads so we didn’t even bother to air down.  After about 30 minutes we started to see some more challenging obstacles. 

N had to air down after getting stuck with his BFG Rugged Trail Racing slicks.  Airing down helped out a bit but we still had to try a couple of different lines to get him up the trail.  We knew that if I got stuck higher up there would be no chance for him at all.   We kept climbing up, and the snow and mud kept getting worse.  We got to a point where we couldn’t climb any more and decided to go back down.  Later on we found our way to the top and went down the portion of the trail that we couldn’t climb.  We found out then that we were very close to the top already and there wasn’t much more to see.  All in all it was a great trip and I’d definitely go again. Here are some pics! Sorry only cell phone pics… forgot the 20D at home!

Bad Luck on Christmas!

by on Dec.26, 2008, under Wheeling

Well I was driving back from a Christmas party and about 2 miles from home I hear a loud *pop*!! I pull over right away and find out I had a flat. Now I have some pretty meaty mud terrain tires so I was curious what actually damaged my tire enough to actually pop and go flat instantly. It ends up that I had run over a huge sharp piece of metal that was about 5″ wide and 1/2″ thick! It went right through the thick part of my lugs and sliced right into the tire. So very SAD! There is no way I’m wheeling without a good spare! Boo!!!

The next trip!

by on Dec.25, 2008, under Wheeling

Looking forward to a new trip Sunday the 28th! The wife and I will be wheeling with N at Cleghorn Trail! I hear its a short but rewarding trail so it should be a quick getaway. I can’t wait to put the truck into 4lo and crawl up some new trails. Hopefully there won’t be too much snow up there!

And so it begins!

First post! Welcome everyone… I’m sad to say that I am getting sick. It started with a sore throat and now its expanding to a cough and stuffy nose. What a bummer! At least I have a few days off work to recover.
