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:

Not a whole lot of photos but a few:

So the ranger got to play Tow Truck once again which cut the day short, but any day in the woods is a good one!

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:

Only a few surprises as far as carnage goes. Bray found a surprise water hole and hydro locked his motor. We managed to get it rolling again, and he made it home okay. I had a bit of a surprise on the way home when a Tie Rod loosened up a bit making for a quick white knuckle lane change. Tightened it up and rocked out all the way home.
