Moon Rocks trip from this weekend w/ PICS

myself and two other buddies headed out to the rocks for the first time this weekend. It became an instant favorite, and was really fun learning the limits and capabilities of our rigs. The traction is awesome with all of the granite.

Moon Rocks allows you to have loads of fun even if your open on 33", you can make it as easy or as hard as you want, here's how some of our trip went.

No plan to privatize Moonrocks, maybe you need another hit of the chronic

If we did try to make it private, it wouldn't be the military, it would be the locals...

This is absolute bullshit. Not mention that "privatize" and U.S. Military are contrary terms and should've tipped you off to the reliability of the rumor. The only people who stand a risk of limiting access to Moon Rocks are the douche bags who can't resist tagging rocks or can't clean up after themselves.

woah buddy, c'mon now. it does't need to be a heated thread, but its good to see you all standing up for it. I loved the place, and i think we left with more trash than we came with, i would hate to see something happen to it, but it doesn't sound like it will.

on a side note, does Tier 1 have their own off road course?
