21st ORT in The Lone Ranger – Interlake 9-21-13

21st ORT in The Lone Ranger – Interlake 9-21-13

I like this park, I like it a lot more when it’s dry. Sadly though, it rained about 1.5” the day before we headed out to the park which made getting around to some of the parts we wanted to get to impossible as the hill climbs would have just been a winchfest. So in spite of being denied early in the day, and with a little U-joint carnage, we still managed to cover about 10 miles of the park:…

16th Offroad Trip – Interlake 4/6/13

It looks like we traveled about 10 miles wandering around the park: Some of the group meeting up in IL: Heading East: And meeting up with the rest of the group: We started wandering our way through the park: Playing on the steep hills: Killing one of my mirrors, please excuse the wife trying to fall down the hill: Lifting a wheel on the way down: We continued plodding along: Until we got to one of the rock gardens: I…

6th ORT Interlake SRA – 3/12/12

6th ORT Interlake SRA – 3/12/12

There was a pop up run this past Saturday out at Interlake. We didn’t get to wheel all day due to an early breakdown (at a gas station parking lot no less) when the 1 ton XJ managed to snap a ptiman arm. Even with the delay, we covered nearly 10 miles (including the new trail 19). The park continues to improve every time I go out there with signage and such. We were surprised at how dry it was…

3rd ORT – Interlake 9/21/11

We covered about 11 1/2 miles of a very sloppy Interlake area. It rained on us all the way until Noon: Shot of the group in the parking lot: Somehow I got elected trail guide and we headed off into the park: For some reason, people like to follow me around, so we started wandering around and I manged to immediately led the group to a very slick, muddy hill climb: Videos (click the picture): We pushed on through the…

ORT – Interlake SRA 1/29/11

I was lacking a wheeler, but still had an itch to get out into the woods. So I grabbed a seat from a friend and rode on! It was fun playing passenger for a change. And yes, that’s about as sloppy as that soil can get. I’m looking forward to another trip out there this year, maybe when its green and not so wet! We covered about 15.7 miles over the course of the day, mostly just wandering around in…

ORT – Interlake 12/28/09

A friend and myself played hooky today and ran out to the Interlake Park. For future reference, its about 155 miles (2 hr 15 mins) to the park from where we live. This is the first time we’d been to the park since it opened. The Good: Huge Park, over 3 k acres Former strip mine area, similar to landscape of another strip mine area we know. Scenic, fairly easy drives, but more than a few places to bang you…

Interlake 3-28-15, The TJ’s 2nd ORT

We took the Cookie Cutter TJ on it’s second Off-Road Trip with the boy.  This trip turned out to be a pretty good mud test for the new tires.  With all the rain the prior week, it was a wee bit sloppy, though not as sloppy as I feared it would be.  The boy was ready to go bright and early:
