Let's see the pics and vids guys, I know there is a ton out there.
There's a few posted on CTB Face book; may all have been from Friday.
I've uploaded a few videos, working on some more. I ran out of memory earlier in the day and missed several hours of footage I THOUGHT I was getting.
Anyway, Here's our favorite trail Part 1, some "floor tile" fun, and then part 2
Ahh YES, first ones here on Thursday!
We set up camp.....Jason calls me a "squatter" because I look like one with my ghetto tarp over my bedcover
time to chill for a sec.
But Jason can't sit still long before he's helping me install my new steering
We go hit some trails Thursday night
Then we came back for some killer Chili!
Friday we headed out for some more fun as the bouncers rolled in
We covered most of the trails we scouted for saturday. Then had some great burgers
Saturday we started off with everyone settled and ready to go
Rode by the Flat billers
and headed up
Had some loose screws with a loose bolt
And then lunch
Some of the black trail action over off 50 and the 70's
Cory playing on the 70's
Buggies on the 70's with us
SO MANY rock gardens all over
Wow, freakin awesome vids! We had a hell of a good time, some of the best east coast wheelin I have ever seen for good crawling!
We had a rough night sat night, little to know sleep to be had, the rock bouncer crowd is a whole different breed in general.
This was what was happening saturday
I figured Kennith could WIN that one!
Great pics & vids, guys!
A couple of other videos of different sections of Blue trails
Just for you @Jason W.
(I would have made this the soundtrack for one of the videos if I wanted to actually download the song....but, I just couldn't bring myself to do it)
Oh Hell, I'm having fawkin nightmares about that song, I might as well just buy a flat bill hat, 4 light bars for the JK and some neon douche wheel lights, throw in a 22 ounce coars light and join the masses.
Post trip report...
Don, Troy and I rolled into camp on Thursday at about 3pm, faught the houling wind all the way there. The campground is a huge field where you just put up camp wherever you please(there is no shade). We got set up and changed out Troys steering to a Currie correct link, took about 30 mins. Joe rolled in at dark and ate some badass Jeep chili @Don M Friday we pre rode nearly 3/4 if the park. Another thanks to @Don M for coordinating the entire route and navigation, worked flawlessly on sat. Fridays ride went great, only two razors as any traffic, basically had it too ourselves until we went into the area where the bounty hill was being held.
The videos above show very well the terrain, this place is awesome. Any rig will have a blast out there. Different from most, if a trail is marked as a black trail there they mean it!
Troy got a big dent in His rear r/h corner, Joe got a good dent on his l/h windshield frame, Cory peeled his windshield frame back and busted the glass!
If you missed this one, you missed some of the best trails on the east coast.
Don't forget all the "fun" going on all around us
Finally got to do a thorough cleaning last night (work has been hell)
Jacked it up and broke out the pump sprayer of purple power, and the pressure washer. Sprayed off the chunks until I could SEE black and started sprayer + scrubber on the chassis. Started rinsing but kept getting orange despite not seeing clumps. Took the wheels off to see the spring cups leveled off with mud. Mud in the disc vents, mud in the frame holes. Holy crap...I thought I had cleaned it
Cleaned the cups, the brakes, and played "just the tip" in all the frame holes with the pressure washer until I saw no more orange. Then I remembered the Barnes skid plate. had to flush it for a good 5 minutes.
Had it squeaky clean underneath so time to wash the body. Got it washed from top to bottom and look down and clumps STILL falling out from under it
Damn IH8MUD! But damn this weekend was fun!
Does anyone happen to have an extra AORP sticker? I failed to buy one when we were there
Nope, but if did I would trade it for one of your AARP stickers
Looks like y'all had a great time! AWESOME!!!
