The Mighty Merc – 7th ORT – Flat Nasty Off Road 7-28-18

Now that construction is complete on the new place (well.. mostly) we felt well overdue for a trip to the woods. A friend picked a weekend at Flat Nasty, so we loaded up and rolled out. The kids were very excited to get to the park as ever since we had mentioned “Going to the Woods” a few days prior, they kept asking if it was time to go yet:

Over the course of the day, we covered roughly 7.5 miles in the park. The weather was favorable (though humid!) and the rain stayed away all day:

We didn’t really have a plan other than to just wander around. The Green YJ was on its maiden voyage after liking the front (it is now linked front and rear) so we mostly just bounced from place to place playing on whatever caught our eye.

Towards the end of the day, we found ourselves at the Bears again. I parked the Merc and let the magic air do its thing for the kids while they took a little nap. The rest of the group played around on things during that time. These waterfalls have washed out quite a bit since the last time we were down here. All the rain that we have been having this year has definitely been doing its thing in a few places:

Another great day in the woods! I now need to turn my attention to getting the Merc ready for an upcoming CO trip here in September. The front Spartan Locker is being dumb (Often doesn’t want to unlock with the front hubs locked in.. even in 2wd). So we’ll see what fun I find digging into that..
