First outing with Carli (PICS)

My boy and I went wheeling today for about 8 hours in the Nevada Desert. This was mostly slow stuff, lots of dirt roads and crawling on reasonably sized rocks. I had a blast. This makes the cost of the system, wheels and tires totally worth it. I have two more runs planned between now and the end of January. Sorry, no real action shots.

I got a lot of desert pin-striping today. Those trails are clearly Jeep sized.

Tons of fun!!!!! Literally...




No road was visible at the top of this peak... the leader just said "keep it straight and keep going"


My boy with some bones...










Sorry if this is Jeep overkill...

Only that my spare diesel tanks leaked all over my bedrug and my $84 shock gauge failed me miserably as a tire gauge/chuck.

None with the truck!
