I had a blast Friday. I had been a while since I have been in the woods. My jeep drove great and all the bugs are gone. I hate I missed the weekend but I had to keep the kitchen pass holder happy on an event she had scheduled for Saturday night. AOP is an awesome park. You can find any level trail you want to ride.

Sometimes you have to go home early in order to go big later.

To second what was mentioned by Tony Saturday
night about switching from Gulches to AOP....
We as the staff are always concerned when ever
we make change's to the calendar. So changing the
whole venue was of great concern but it appears that
the right decision was made. We hope everyone had
a great time.

Friday
Our group hit trail 43 which turn out to be
a little tougher than last month believe it or not....
David did awesome in his 2 door XJ.....
Thanks Clark for the Chili Friday night.....good stuff
(no anti-poop pills needed)

Saturday
Rough start with David breaking on the trail....
Thanks for Scott leading the smaller hard core
group.....Seen a lot more of the park than ever
before.

Thanks for the spotting everyone

Still very happy with the Jeep.....little rock rash
on front bumper and a big rock got down to the
yellow paint from John's cage.....that was a hell
of a rush making it on that one obstacle.....

Went and looked at trail 50 for possible redemption
but there was some kind of rig (small tractor/side by side)
that was hung up on it.....to be honest I don't think
I would have tried it again anyway!

I know the guy who coined the base of that phrase.

That hurts Todd. Yes, I was driving. Jeep was climbing good and got to the toughest spot on the climb and it stalled. Could not get it started. We decided to pull me back so it could flatten out and fuel would be getting to the sending unit but when we started pulling back the driver front tire was binding so I tried to turn the wheel and it free spun off in my hands. Made for an interesting night for sure. Serious trail, back of park, jeep won't start and no steering. Scott is the new macgyver of the crew for his strap idea and I win the mountain goat award for climbing up and down the mountain countless times. Great workout by the way  //;D//

I do need to say this though... Todd's Jeep is a handful for sure. It is not easy to wheel that rig. Need popeye forearms and it takes alot more go juice to keep it rolling forward. I applaud him and his driving skills after wheeling that jeep for the short time. If he had a newere jeep he would easily outclass all of us with driving prowess. But I know it was not my fault it broke. I heard he was hot lapping it on the race track prior to this night ride //popcorn//

Just messing with ya Ben I know you didn't do anything to cause it. Like Marie said as tough of a time we had getting it out if it didn't break then it could have broke on the next ride and could have been a lot worse and it helps me pull the trigger on installing the PSC system I got

this was a great weekend I had a blast. Thanks to Danny and everyone else who worked to get it setup. Thanks for the chili Clark it was really good. I Know I have already told ya"ll but I have to give Scott, Ben, Clark a major thank you for all the work they put into getting my jeep off the trail and back to camp. For those that didn't hear my carnage was a smashed tail light and a snapped input shaft on the steering box so this turned out to be one of the most epic night rides and recoveries for me. can't wait to go back to this park.

The steering shaft broke on the night ride??

Just a 30 minute night ride...that's all.
