    6th ORT Interlake SRA โ€“ 3/12/12

    There was a pop up run this past Saturday out at Interlake. We didnโ€™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…

    5th ORT Washita MX 11-19-11

    My neighbor and I ran down to Washita this past Saturday and met up the SJIA group. Since the neighbor was along for the ride, I got a plethora of photos out of the deal. I wonโ€™t post them all in this thread, but this link has the rest (thereโ€™s about 300 photos or so): Link to all the photos here (click) Somehow I got elected to lead this group around the park again, so we wandered through A-4, up…

    2011 WY/MT Trip โ€“ Day 10

    Mondays Suck You know the saying, โ€œIf it werenโ€™t for bad luck, I wouldnโ€™t have any luckโ€? Well that appears to apply well to me. We jumped in the truck this morning and I was happy to find that the clutch had healed itself overnight. So we topped off the tank and hit the road for our last 12 hour stretch which would have put us home at 5 ish. At about 60 miles into the trip, in the middle…
