Who uses film anymore? FWIW my site is setup to catalog the trails so you can check it out before driving all the way out to it. If it looks too easy you haven't wasted time. No need to be so insecure.

What can I say? I was listening to my spotter. At the time we just wanted to get the weight of the vehicle off of my driveshaft, that was the lesser of two evils.

I went and looked around, nice site, but where's the "hard stuff"?? To be totally honest, we have tighter, bigger trails 30 min. from home... I'm sure yours are like everyother trail, there are hard and easy lines...at least i hope so cause there are some prudy small tires on more than a few of the rigs on the trail....
I'm not try'n to down your trails, they are SOME of the best...
REST assured, IF we "fatkid and i" can get away from the shop for more than a day, we'll be there... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Insecure? was that directed at me??
Here's a little hint, before you call someone out aka"BRING IT", you should do a little homework so you don't bite off more than you can chew

Not to get into a pissing match but I have just recently begun to run what I would term extreme trails. Upper Firebird, Intimidator and the Lost World are pretty nasty in person. The pictures look tame on Upper Firebird, but that trail has claimed a Dana 60 axle, various driveshafts, steering boxes, etc, etc. But again, till you have a point of reference it may not impress you. Pictures do not do trails justice mainly due to the camera lense. Most lenses do not have a good field of depth, so everything comes out looking flat. I also wheel with a club and yeah, not everyone is built so they don't run hard trails. Doesn't mean you can't look for some obstacles off to the side to play on. The way I see it any day of wheeling beats a day sitting at home/work.

As for the insecure part, you said I have something to prove because I like to take pictures of the runs I go on. Maybe you were kidding, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. You guys need to lighten up. Fatkid assumes I was talking about him in my first post, nope, that went out to all the SOR guys I met a year ago who said they wanted to do some wheeling farther east. If you guys can make it fine, if you got commitements (note I didn't say excuses)fine. You can always look at the pictures while kicking back with a <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

They were spotting me thru this part:



By the time my back end was clear I was over the top of that little rock. It had been raining on and off so traction was pretty iffy. I cleared the rock with my front diff and started to climb it with my pass side rear tire but it slid off to the pass side, high centering me on my driveshaft (good thing it wasn't a stock one). I put that hi center picture up there so everyone could have a laugh. What's that saying? Shit happens <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

It was ME that said "BRING IT"
and I Always do my homework-

Everything is relative - you got tough trails, they got tough trails, I got tough trails.... the ONLY way to compare apples to apples is to be on the same trail together at the same time. It's not a competition thing it's about bringing your rig & being a part of the action.

So I say BRING IT -- I Will BE in Las Cruces Dec. 8 Chris V sez he's there. Where will U be? Probably at yer ma's doin' laundry <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
