    The Mighty Merc โ€“ 2nd ORT Flat Nasty 5-20-17

    Hey we managed to go wheeling again! I had a brief reprieve from work and other life activities so the boy and I ran down to Flat Nasty again to get a little more seat time in the Merc. We stayed on the easier trails as my friend had his daughter out for the first time and we were trying to make sure it was a fun experience (it was!). With all the rain down there lately, there were a…

    20th ORT in The Lone Ranger – Flat Nasty 8/24/13

    12th Off-Road Trip โ€“ Flat Nasty Off-Road 11/17/12

    This was an awesome day in the woods for our group. Everything went well with minimal carnage (the worst being a Dead front DS on a YJ), and just good times with good friends. The truck performed exceptionally well the whole and handled the highway time very well (running right at 13.5 mpgโ€™s). The park is continuing to be improved, and there should be a true campground facility in place by late May 2013. Ron has still been โ€˜fluffingโ€™ several…
