29th ORT In The Lone Ranger – 1-1-15 Washita MX

29th ORT In The Lone Ranger – 1-1-15 Washita MX

Well I managed to sneak another trip in with the truck for our annual New Years Day run. I didn’t get to wheel the truck as much as I would have like to have as 3 of the Jeeps I was running around with suffered some failures (Dead hub/locker, Popped shaft, no start). Since the trucks future looks bleak, I haven’t spent any time fixing things on it, so onto the trailer it went for the ride down: <a href=”http://saral.zenfolio.com/p702483558/ea6eff2c”><img…

27th ORT in The Lone Ranger– SMORR 10-11-14

Still beating this thing around… this was one very wet weekend! While I was looking forward to camping this weekend, I wasn’t too upset that we wussed out and hotel camped. We met up with the usual group + Bray at the part and covered about 8 miles worth of trails: Even with the light rain throughout the day, it was still a good time, and there was decent traction throughout the park: The YJ just wanted to nap: All…

This is the first time I’ve been down to Washita since the new ownership has taken over. While they aren’t open as much as they used to be, the park is better marked than it has ever been! It’s been over a year since I’ve made the trip down there so it was nice to get back to the old stomping grounds, even if it was 200°F out side! Needless to say it was extremely dry which limited traction quite…

We headed down to SMORR with several folks from SIJA and MO4wd. Some familiar faces and some strangers. Good times were had. Lots of photos in the link below: Slideshow of all the photos (Click Me!) Loaded up the truck and went to work on Friday, patiently waiting for the bell to ring to head South: We had to make a quick stop in Rolla for some grub and check out the XJ’s steering. It turned out that the ram…

24th IRT in The Lone Ranger – SIJA Jeep Jam at Flat Nasty Off Road 5-3-14

Started out the day with some good grease: A good chunk of the group (one of these things is not like the others): We covered a hair over 11 miles in the park. Most of our time was spent on 18 and 14, with some wandering around in the afternoon: Random photos from the day: Slideshow of all the photos: (Link) Video from the day:

It’s been way too long since I’ve had the chance to go out and play (9/13 was the last outing). Kiddo is taking up quite a bit of time so the truck doesn’t see much in the way of play time anymore. But hey, It was nice to get out into the woods again! When was the last time you saw a Mercury Wagon on the road? We showed up with a huge crowd and wound up splitting off into…

22nd ORT in The Lone Ranger – Stocker no Locker at Moonlight Racing 9-22-13

22nd ORT in The Lone Ranger – Stocker no Locker at Moonlight Racing 9-22-13

While I’m far from being a stocker, and I definitely have lockers, I rounded up a noob driver to chaufer me around during this local even put on by Mo4wd. We wound up having a blast on the easy trails in the morning, and in the afternoon I graduated my noob to a few of the harder trails We managed to cover a little over 5 miles of trails: I didn’t take too many photos, but here’s what I got:…
