Have they cut any more trails there? I went a couple times a few years back and it got real boring after a few hours.

I widened a few.

I've had a good time riding. some of it gets repeat, but if you don't mind Texas pinstripes, you can get in quite a few of them.

I remember that truck last year! That was a mean machine till it broke a bead Saturday night/Sunday morning. (I'm only remember one black Chevy last year so I'm pretty sure that's it) It's not looking good for me this year so yall have fun.

^^Yep. This is how it ended up after Saturday night.


Plan is to be there by noon on Friday. i hope it doesnt get too bad out there. 2 years ago was miserable. People were getting their travel trailers buried in the parking lot.

/\/\ yep that was it. Looks like yall had fun.

Don't forgit COLD!!! This Texas boy just can't handle that cold. Yea, the trail between the park and overflow was a joke that year. Last year the overflow was in a good spot though.

I have a feeling that the overflow they used last year will be miserable at the end of the event. The ground will be soaked. I might drop off my rig and park my trailer and truck at a buddys house in Huntsvegas.

I believe two years ago Huntsville got ~2" of rain the week before (I looked it up on the internet last year to check official recordings). Doesn't look as much this year... I'll check the rain guage this evening and again later this week if it rains again and let you know if you'd like.

Yep. Still have work to do on my rig. Mounting my passenger suspension seat and 5-points with custom mounts is taking some time. Should have it done my Thursday.

Only thing on my list is Camping gear, rain suit, beer, Jack, ice, and beer.

I left my phone in my pocket due to the rain and all. All I got was a posser pic of my truck at camp... Wish I'd have got something just driving in the overflow though.

YouTube has a few vids up already.
