'nuff said

I need to get some armor under there, even though it never bottomed out, I really dont look forward to smashing something.

thats sweet, but I think you could have done it w/o swampers.

What size tire are you running?

27's

and yeah, I probably could have, but I dont like riding on rocks with 600$ touring tires. Although with the SSR's I think I could have done it in FWD, I never felt any slip (I drove most of the 3 mile trail)

thats cool.... and trust me a time will come when you will appreciate those tires. after having offroaded my beast with the tsl/sxs and then offroaded my stock subaru with stock bald touring tires and having seen some of the difficulties scoobyclimbs has had with lack of traction when he gets off to the side in ruts, you will definately appreciate those tires at some point in time, that and they are incredibly tough tires.

Nice video.. but wasn't that a bit slow? :rolleyes:
are you running an auto, or 5spd?
and come on.. you dodged that mud hole towards the end there. GO FOR IT! you want mud all over the place, afterall that's what those tires are ment for. ;)

first off i would like to say im not hear to do any bashingor to pee in any ones weedies :clap: ut .............. yeah im sorry im with andyjo on that one

now your car does look nice so i can see where you didnt want to go beating the crap out of it but over here in washington (mostly western) that trail looked like some thing a hot august week would bring :)

not sure if we love are cars, but dont respect them / or if we just love to get them all soupy mudy and broke it

but for the record my 86' hatch with 185/70/13 POS nankag have seen worst
conditions in renton,wa

but if i had the $$$$ i would of gone the same rought as you

keep up the good work and dont fire the camera guy he does good work
i loved how he panned over to the hill so we could see how far of a drop you had

I didn't mean to bash anyone or anything, i just get bored easily... slow moving things don't catch my eye as much as sloppy flinging mud & scraping metal on rocks :D
Still, awesome video, can i borrow your camera man... ? well.. according to your credits... it seems that YOU are the camera man? and.. scott was driving? who's scott? :-p

I was having fun before filming in the mud, however I bashed into a rock which was in the middle of one of the pits. I'll be harder on it when I get armor :P gg

And I was filming, just carryign the tripod. When I panned over I tried to get a shot of that tree falling, but you couldnt see it, so I just let you guys hear it. (That was the crash when the music pauses)

nice video, thats the kind of conditions i like wet and muddy but i'm with everyone else at least at that mudhole you should have punched it a little and threw up some mud. a little bashing won't hurt much of anything, you just don't have to get crazy.

uhhh that was the entire trail. The trail looped around the side of the mountain all the way down. :banana:

I know it doesent look it, but the exterior of my wagon isnt really in good shape at all. I'm going to have to rip all the plastic cladding off sooner or later because a lot of it is just hanging on by tape or glue. And the window gasket on the passenger side is held on with electrical tape. Subaru quality :D

Ah, I see you found my driveway........
Well, ok, I keep the trees trimmed back from my drive.
Speed is a delicate balance, you go as fast as possible, but as slow as necessary. If that means 5mph, then that's it. I have done hours at walking speeds, and I have done water crossings at 25+. Trying to avoid carnage is a good reason to slow it down.
About eight years ago, I did the power lines in Flagstaff, AZ, about 14miles, in a 2wd Toyota pickup. Lots of riding the clutch, some obstacles took a couple attempts, but I did it without putting any visible dents in the truck, aside from the front air dam. It took me the better part of six hours, but I did get out and walk the trail in a few spots.

It was off Harmony Lane or Stoney Mountain (more likely, I remember a hard turn) just past Snow Bowl Road, take the fire road out about five miles, and go up a really steep, rocky, rutted trail to the left.
It was almost 10years ago, so I might be thinking of a different trail. I do remember it came out north of the Corral on 89.
On edit:
Now that I think about it a little more, it might have been the gas line. I kept my eyes on the terrain more than the scenery-
