The Mighty Merc – 6th ORT – Flat Nasty Off Road 2-10-18

Yes, 6th trip. I only took one photo from the 5th trip out so you’ll just have to use your imagination on that one!

After a few stops on the way down to scrape off the windshields from the freezing rain we encountered, we arrived at Flat Nasty to find that we had the park nearly to ourselves. Apparently not many goofballs want to brave the cold and freezing rain to go play on the rocks!

Given that it was dang cold, and I was often holding a kid, the photos are lacking a bit. Which is often the case these days. But here’s what I’ve got

We covered a touch over 6 miles in the park:

We ran into more freezing rain on the way home. Lots of stops to clear off the windshields, but we made it back just fine:

Another good day in the woods even though I mostly stayed out of the fun spots in the park. Wrenching in the cold just didn’t appeal to me that day! I still managed to nearly blow out the Drivers side rear window, and the tie rod was frowning at me by the end of the day.

Over all, the truck still works pretty well. Once I get into the new house, I hope to address some areas to improve upon things.
