We where planning a 4th of july trip but it might not work out now. So we where thinking of coming down to Lander. Just wandering if you still had room. Also how extreme is the extreme? Hopefully we are talking 4+to 5. Or is it just one obstacle on the trail? We where going to the black hills and running some of their stuff again, so I was hoping for some fun styff down there. Thanks for the info.

Where we play is as easy or hard as you make it. Definately worth the trip to Lander. We have plenty of room at www.sleepingbearrvpark.com Make sure you mention the rally when you make reservations. There is also quite a bit of free camping/rv sites available as well. You can register here. http://app.formassembly.com/forms/view/12448

We also have several trails with some good obstacles. One of them was runner up in the BFG Outstanding trails program this year.

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize there where some good trails down that way. Have to make a trip sometime if I don't make the rally. I had heard there where some by Thermopolis, but haven't ran into anybody that wheels that direction, yet. Do you guys post runs on the web site or is it better to just email someone and ask. First I should ask do you guys mind nonmembers coming along? Thanks

Thanks for the info on Lander. But I have too much crap going on up here. So I have to bail. Was looking forward to meeting some of the wyoming guys. Oh well, someday I will have time to wheel again. If I get the time to make it down that way I'll try and give you guys a shout.

Hey, PLEASE keep me updated on any future events up there. We have the time to come up and wheel. I'm going up to Cody, Gardiner and Cook City the week before the 4th. I'm going to hit the Goose Lake trail if it is passable.

Have you been on the goose lake trail before? There is nothing to difficult, specially on 42's. Scenery is nice though.

Been going there since 93. I used to live in Montana and in Big Timber, MT. I'm not taking the Scout up there. Other than deep water crossings, there isn't anything there to challenge it.
We're taking the H3. It will perform considerably better than our old stock S-10 Blazer did on 31s. I'm certain of that.

Yeah the Hummer should do better. There is just a bunch of bowling balls to drive over going up there. How do you like the rockers?

The Rockers are great! They do work well on everything. Some tires will work better. Like the Boggers in the sand. These work in the sand, but don't have the bite that the Boggers do in climbing steep sand hills.
In the mud, the Rockers seem to do good too. I haven't been stuck in the mud with the Boggers or the Rockers yet.
The Rocker's sidewall have held up EXTREMELY well to the sharp jagged stuff. I am thoroughly, completely pleased in that category. I have two sidewall cut Boggers that I cut that I can compare them to. They blow MTRs out of the water.

On the dry rocks, they are close to the Iroks, just a minor detectable, noticeable difference in traction. The Rockers are slightly better. When the rocks are wet, I have climbed stuff that Iroks and Swampers couldn't.

On road, I wouldn't hesitate to drive them anywhere. I actually do drive them on the road a lot. People that have ridden with me remark that they couldn't believe they were not radials. Mine are not balanced either. I have had them up to 100 mph. With the Boggers, 85 mph was it.

For a all around tire, that I need, I won't buy anything else. I am that pleased with them.

The ultimate stamp of approval came from the Wife. She is so oblivious to stuff, that half the time she wouldn't notice you if you stood in front of her. When we go wheeling now over the same obstacles with the Rockers, she mentions how much easier they are to climb.

Nice to hear someones opinion that has been around some other tires. The only real off road tire I have ran is the IROK. I have been extremely please with them. Seems like I'm pulling traction when other guys are fighting it. MTR's and some TSL's. I have not went with anybody with rockers yet. I just wish they made the 44 in a 13.50 or 14.
