We're still getting the van ready for our Colorado trip.. Actually bought all of the lumber for the bed and cabinet build out yesterday and plan to have the new bed in today.. Lea has been picking up material for curtains and sun shades.

I'm doing a Meet and Greet for the Overlanding forum I'm on (next Sat in Arlington), otherwise I won't be ready for a Bridgeport or Gilmer trip in the Jeep until later in July.

I plan on going out in the next couple of weeks. The tires, winch, and recovery gear are being ordered this week.
The Jeep is also getting dropped off to have the suspension checked out and updated as needed.

You need a lot more throttle on that run. if you pin it hard enough you cut right through those rocks like butter. Just gotta make sure you never let off no matter how loud or "airbagey" it gets.

Also make sure you film it.

When in doubt....power out!

Itching to go back out again! Went last weekend with a FB group, and 3 others we met on the trails. Had a blast. Still got a lot to learn, but each time I go, I do learn more. Having good spotters is really great too, Lyn is watching and learning spotting also, along with some pic/vid's.

Here's a youtube vid of me going down a trail called "Rocky Balboa" Rock sliders will be coming soon, lol. No damage from that rock tho, it was just a slight scrape.





About half the group or so

Did it. Time to do some subtle mods and hit some trails/camp.

Hell yeah that's awesome! Keep us updated on what you think of it.

Those tires need to go however. If you're in the Arlington/Mansfield area, Kevin Viken took care of me at discount tire off 20. Super fast and reasonable prices for BFG TA KO2s

Anyone here ever been out to Katemcy Rocks?

http://katemcyrocks.com/

The Fullsize Invasion group that I've participated with the past two years in Moab is planning a trip out there in early October. I'm going to try to be there. Looks way more gnarly than anything I've seen at Bridgeport. I've really gotta make rock sliders a priority.

I have not, but Russ Baer (formally of Baertrax) was constantly out there, and it looks really rocky.
