A bunch of pictures and couple small videos from todays adventure in the snow

Greenhorn Creek just just a few miles up the road from home. Pictures quality kinda sucks...Just dug my camera out of a moving box and need to re-familiarize myself with it's settings.












More to follow....

Looks like a good time. You need to get you a wheeling buddy! (or teach the dog to video)

I ripped my lines after I got home. Then I replaced every nail in the deck with a 4" long screw. By hand.

That's just a running total of were I am since I last reset the trip data. You enter your mpg and the cost of fuel, and it tells you how appx much its costing you to drive around.

I knew someone wouldn't be able to resist.

If you "know how it sounds", why say it at all?

Now that that is out of the way... digging the truck!

Very nice truck its different seeing one not chopped up on here though watching the turning radius makes me appreciate every inch of shortness on mine. I'm always solo with my dog that's why I want to figure out a way to mount my enduro low because my flat bed is so high. I feel a lot safer with it then without it, that and a winch........ probably need the quad in the snow though?!

The area off Buckeye Rd (at the crossing and upstream and downstream) is technically still open, it looks to me (and I could be wrong) that you are wheeling in the closed area in one of those vids.

From the Red Dog Crossing north and south is illegal wheeling.

When Law Enforcement, the County or the Land owners see stuff like this, and believe me they troll these boards regularly, the blame gets laid at my feet. I think your truck is awesome, but I would be very appreciative if you took the pics down especially where you are not supposed to be.

Don't get me wrong, I want folks to use the area until the fat lady sings, I just don't want the harassment.


Thanks,

Bebe

Friends of Greenhorn


Edit: to add wheeling at Greenhorn under snow cover is incredibly dangerous....doing it alone is well, not responsible.
