My first real off road experience.

I was sent with a mission to see if there was any good wheeling there for my brothers group of 4x4 friends in full size pickups. I was there all day until dusk and boy was it fun. I didnt do anything crazy
since i am stock, on all seasons, bymyself, with no winch and a cell phone with no service out there(gotta get a cb).
Anyways, what a blast, i got a few pics but i haven't configed my computer for my digi cam(running linux). I can't wait for all my new goodies to get here so i can go back with a group of ppl and get real muddy.
Sorry for the long post, i was just amazed at the hundreds of acres of wheelable terrain in my "backyard".
Btw, i got lots of looks from guys on dirt bikes and quads and in jeeps and full size pick ups. Prolly thought i was stupid(i am alittle).
Its fun and i like that i my subaru can fit on small tight trails. I do need to get a snorkel setup for some of the deep water out in the pine barrens though.

so what kind and year soobie are you running???????????? stock soobies due pretty good offroad and with some kind of traction tire( like a snow tire thats rated for mud and snow) on it helps for traction too.

There are two types of people. The ones that tell you to go back b/c they don't think you can make it or the ones who egg you on b/c they want to see you stuck.
On an stock Outback Sport, pick a good line and stay on the skinny pedal. Picking the right line is what is key when you have low ground clearance.
Regardless, you will have people with their jaws open and eyes popped out.

Reminds me of automatics....
You just hit the gas and steer.

I don't like the auto as much as a manual trans, but its not that bad(off road anyways). My next car and any future cars will be stick tho.

Stock OBW here, so not too much mud for me

My new tires should be here tomorow and my new struts as well. I just need to order springs/find springs and i am pretty much good to go. Before i do anything serious i wanna pick up a good come-a-long(see my other thread in this section) and a recovery strap and i'll hit Wharton up anytime. Its so big.
