We had a great time!  On flatlands road as soon as we went past the first water crossing, my check engine light came on and my truck kept dying, ( the only truck on the ride ) it was missing and not running right.  When I got to the second "canyon" I heard someone say " all you need is momentum ". As I started up the hill my truck stalled and almost died, this caused me to lose all my momentum and I was stuck up against the wall, like all the way up on it.  I was able to back up and after a couple of tries, and hearing someone say "the pickup is stuck" I  feathered the throttle and was able to get up the hill. (Engine was cutting out big time) From my seat it was an exciting way to get out.  I was able to nurse truck back to the paved road, turned truck off  for a couple minutes as we waited, when I started it back up, check engine light was off and had no issues the  rest of the day
  Enjoyed the night ride up tray mountain

It was good meeting you and I'm glad the gremlin was gone for the rest of the ride.

Funny story to me anyways.    My wife does not like trail riding, never goes.  My older son loves it.  My youngest I wasn't really sure until today.  As soon as we get on the first trail, he looks up from his iPad and says "what's the point of all this?".  That's exactly what his mother would say.  So I pretty much know where he stands now.

Today was fun. I normally don't get to join the "street legal" rides since I trailer my other rig every month. You really forget how awesome it is to be able to drive your jeep on the streets. The beer afterwards didn't suck either

Hello everyone.  My son and I had a great time. Sorry we missed the dinner. I got a Go-Pro for Christmas and this is my first time using it and my first time using you tube.  Anyway, I've pasted the link below to my video from Saturday's trip.  Thank you to GATR for coordinating a great trip!
