A big thanks to some hella cool guys at Byrd's 06/07/09

Kinda long but stay with it and ignore my grammar for a great wheeler's story!

A friend and I took our rigs to Byrd's yesterday. My friends rig was on its maiden voyage after a 60/70 install. It would be an understatement to say it was a miserable day! After an engine fire, a trashed motor mount, a stripped steering box, a non- running engine and a auto tranny not shifting it couldn't have been worse.

Oh yeah it could cause we decided the maiden voyage would be on "PURE HELL"!

After almost 3 hours of trying to get it out with my jeep and its 8000 winch we were out of ideas. My wife prayed (literally) to God to send us someone to help. We jumped in my jeep and headed to the camp ground. And God answered....BIG TIME!

This is where it gets cool!

Scott and the guy with the scorpion look alike (Can't believe I forgot your name) where trailer-ed up and on a final strap check headed back to NW Arkansas. We told them the situation and they immediately started unloading the Scorpion and I think Scott's quote was ' Heck we aren't gonna leave you stranded om the mountain'.

Less than an hour later they had us back at camp. ( Note to self...sell dang 8000 lb winch for a 12,500!)

These guys coulda already been home and have everything cleaned up but instead they stopped to help some rookies out. I cannot tell you how appreciative we are guys!!! We even tried to give them gas money but they said " Nope, one day it could be us down there needing help!"

TOO COOL GUYS AND A HUGE THANKS AGAIN

Private park with about 20 or so trails. 10 trails with a 4-5 rating that are good for big tire. A good place to spend a weekend, borders National forrest land with some trails.

They have a campground, store, canoe /raft rentals and is located on the Mulberry River.

A lot of people will go for a combination trip of wheeling and floating...
