yes, dust comes off/out much better than mud, just as Don.

I enjoyed Leading the easy group but I would have liked to run more Blues. We did the loop at the end of Boundry down by the detention pond at the bottom of Backside and Pick Your Poison. I enjoyed it. Conner's Dad opted out which was probably wise because I'm not sure his F150 would have made it. Just because a vehicle has 4WD doesn't mean it should be running an OR Park. I noticed that even the "easy" trails were more rocky than last time I was there, last August. It was good to be out. But my crew (Laura and dog Roxy) had enough with the extreme heat. And the lake was callin'. Was good to see some new and familiar faces.

Jimbo, Thanks for leading us around Saturday morning. We enjoyed the ride. My neighbor Jay, flatbed F150, really had a good time.

Went back out after lunch and finally fell in behind Bobby, Kent , and a few others and I followed them down and back up Tombstone. Really good challenge for the WJ. Going down was pretty interesting but made it down (gravity always works). Coming back up I got hung up a bit and had to have a bit of spotting to make it past the merge at the bottom. My son got a video of me on the top half going up the rock slab.

Nice! So was this all of Tombstone or just part of it?

That was the top third of Tombstone. My passengers got out and spotted me on the bottom third where Tombstone and another branch trail merge.

Found a few more battle scars on the undercarriage but no body damage. Got close a couple times.

Had a good time this weekend. I got a bit of damage on Hulsey.



Door still opens and closes just fine. I have ordered a set of sliders though.
