Wharton March 4th

Me and two other vehicles will be at Wharton March 4th around 9am at the Ranger station. If anyone wants to go let me know and we will wait for you. I'm going to try to get to Apple Pie Hill and various other landmarks through Wharton so it will be pretty good trip.

Sorry, just saw this. We wouldn't be able to make it by 9. Have a great time. I'm assuming you have spare plugs with your this time.

Well all and all I had a great time! Lots of mud and 5 vehicles ended up going. Doc (Pat) was a life saver and pulled me out twice and my cousin once. I will definitly be glad to off road with him again.

Now that is said on to the bad news...I sunk my truck and water locked the motor so bad I (think, not determined) I bent a connecting rod. I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Here is me entering the puddle (WAY TO FAST)


Here is it literaly "dead in the water"



Here is Pat rubbing salt in the would and showing me how friggin boss it is to have 35's and a snorkle lol..

He pulled me out of this..

Thats why I built the cowl snorkel. Till I get the ***** to cut a big hole in the fender. I have never been to that spot. All that sand looks like a good time.

That's Mt. Misery and it's off limits. We were kicked out by the cops and threatend with $1000 fines each. if you want a good spot for sand/dune riding you need to go here...

Hey Pat, when are you going to upload some of those pictures and videos you and Jen took. I want to see the double stuck you pulled us out of.
