Memorial Weekend camping with some Jeepers.

Dave (the neigbor) has a CJ7 locked and geared down. His buddy showed up this year with his lifted cruiser, locked, 38's, V8 etc etc and even a toyota was there (beadlockers, 35's, complete custom cage and everything). Last year was fun, cause I showed up with my lifted wagon. Of course, i got razzed a bunch, but as soon as we hit the trails I pretty much shut them all up.
This year was different since I didnt have my lifted wagon. All I had was the hatch, stock except for cut fenders and my bumper and rack. Still alittle razzing, but that didnt stop me from going out with them to go find some snow.
The hatch didnt do to bad. Street tires really suck, expecially on some of this mud we had. And as long as I had momentum, the snow wasnt a big deal either. Although, my tow strap got plenty of use, there was one chance I got to pull the Cruiser
The Jeep could have pulled him out even easier, but the yota wasnt stuck that bad. Just didnt have the momentum to carry him through the drift and I only have to give a few tugs to get him going. After that we hit up a old mining operation, where there were plenty of hills and mud to play in.
If i had some tread on my tires I would have tried this... but being stock I opted to stay on dry land.
We played alittle in the mud, i had to get pulled out of a hole... i wasnt stuck, just couldnt make it up the incline with my tires full of peanut butter. Swampers should fix that, whenever i get them.
On the way back to camp, i even got a chance to use my roof rack finally! Its not just for show.
Definatly a great weekend. I did come home with some damage however... i lost the rear drivers side mud flap, slightly bent the bottom of my bumper, and my front passenger CV is toasted. Still worth it, now time to increase the clearance and get some tread!

Next year I will be lifted, and the pictures will be alittle better. But the scenery was great, and provided some good shots

OHH!!! The Mud crossing! Thats from all the mud the jeepers kicked up. Not sure why its that color, that area was the old mining operation and its full of decomposed granite. Probably why its slightly yellow. I tried that crossing last year with my lifted wagon and made it. Next year i'll attempt it again!
