    Better late than never, right

    My girlfriend, my friends, and myself all decided to do another Rausch Creek Off-road Park trip. We headed out after the Valley Forge Gun Show on Saturday (June 12th) afternoon (I picked up a nice 12 gauge Remington Wingmaster 870, a compact soft case, and a thigh holster for my Glock). Towed the Wrangler up there with my Silverado (I love my tow bar setup!). We got there around 2030 and met up with my friends who were already there. We set up my Truck Tent and mattress, hung out around the fire, then passed out around 0030.

    By 0900 on June 13th, we aired down (I ran 11 psi, my buddy was at 16), disconnected sway bars, packed the Jeep's, checked in, and off we went. My buddy Harrison was wheeling his XJ on 35's (locked front/rear), while I was wheeling my TJ on 33's (open w/ 3.07's).

    We headed to several trails, including Trail 1, a blue trail where I shot this on-board video:

    We meandered on some green and blue trails and eventually made it to Big Rocks. This is one of Harrison's favorite trails as there are several large rocks, as well as a lot of thick mud which makes for some fun times on the rocks:

    We moved on to some more trails and then to Rock Creek, with the occasional poser shots along the way:

    Next in line was a pretty difficult climb.

    There are SEVERAL more photos but these should suffice.

    Here are 2 other vids, though:

    that's pretty cool. Lots of that going on out here in CO. Scares the crap out of me and you won't find me in one!

    That is great. I have a few buddies who are into or just getting into this hobby. It's not for me however (although I love being a passenger)

    It is definitely a great time. I know a ton of people with both Jeeps and bikes (most of my friends as a matter of fact). I work for the largest Jeep aftermarket parts company in the world as well, so that always helps :) If you've never gone wheeling, DO IT! At least once. Just be ready (in your pocket book) for when that off-roading bug bites you!

    looks like fun. That XJ has some crazy articulation. I'd rather have the TJ, though. It ain't a real Jeep unless the top comes off... ;) I sold my YJ a few years ago and have been missing it a lot lately. It had custom wheels and 33" BFG mud terrains with 2" body and 2" susp lift or thereabouts... Installed bad though I think cause I snapped the cv joint twice. I think it was too much angle.
