Yep! I am heading out into the woods in the impreza!

I took it out with Carl and his Brat, last friday in the night- had a full load of people as usual, but the imp ran the hobbit trail just fine :headbang: (and I actually had to go around 2 lifted trucks that were taking forever squezing thru the trees :rolleyes:)

but yeah.. anyone intersted, I am back in the game :burnout:

I will probably head out there in the evening on friday- (i work) and I will probably wheel a little bit in the evening depending on what time I get there, but I will be crashing at Carl's place (he lives across the river from Reiters!)
or maybe I will just camp out at Reiters, up one of the roads, in the imp :grin:

then some wheelin' in the AM! (need good light for pics!)

~open diffs~AWD~5spd~no lift~ I can show you how its done! ;)

well, I have to be somewhere around noon, so i will probably only be out there till 1130 or noonish, but depending on how close to the road we are, cell coverage still kinda sorta works out there....

I dont really know the trails either... but I should be near the main "pit" area, or near the powerlines!

so the problem with night time offroading, is not being able to see ahead of you easily :eek:

I almost went off the edge here!!! however, my quick reflexes allowed me to stop the car just in time :-p Carl tugged me back on the trail, and we backed back down to the larger area....

it was fairly dry too, the dust made the pics intersting

it was a good time, would like to go back sometime in the day time, with some other soobs too :headbang:

fyi, not that i'm extremely concerned. but night wheeling on any blm land is technically illegal. reiter is blm. and the fire regulations are on nw-wheelers somewhere. has to be in a burn barrel raised off the ground.

looks like it was fun though.

Yeah, i figured.. but the cop that was just a few car lengths away didnt seem to care :rolleyes: :grin: unless maybe he did not see me? who knows..

and I did not have anything for a campfire anways- just a campstove!

but hey... I guess thats why I should go in the day time anways... aside from the saftey aspect of it ;)
