IMO yes completely. bottom of test had alot of woops kinda sucked. the hills after where different.

drag strips where the same "flooded" along with the shore line.

tree area changes all the time. the bowels where a little deeper....

The woops were awesome! Nothing funner then sitting on top of test watching a F-350 Dully catching air over those things.


I will get my pics up tomorrow. We took the route over the UP to get home. 15 hours and 10 minutes later we made it. Oh and Andy hit Hannah Barbara...

The guy on top is a rental jeep, the guy on bottom is a rental jeep. The guy in the middle is a tour guide for the rental company.

The wrangler at the top got stuck so the cherokee tried to pull it out. he got stuck, they used the wranger on the bottom to try and pull them both.

The bumper is ripped off of the cherokee because the tour guide looped the tow strap around the plow mount. The plow mount ripped off.

I went up there and told them how to get everything unstuck. Luckly another jeep came along with a winch to get them all out.

Yeah I was going to use my truck but the winch came along and I was more then happy to let him do it.

All of the straps had tension on them. Thats kindof where we had the problem

We ended up cutting the lower strap with a knife. I was going to pull the cherokee from the top with a couple straps to move it just enough to get the upper strap off, then let him roll down the hill. Then pull the upper wrangler forward. The winch did the same thing.

Thats what I thought at first. What it was is that it has a solid front axle and the other side was burried down in the dirt.

my truck was on a trailer so It didnt take any of the bear. But I just missed it with my tow truck and it hit the front edge of the trailer and bent a hefty light tab and sprayed blood and hair guts etc all over the side and fender. It must have bounced into the ditch, otherwise I have no idea how I didnt roll over it with the trailer or had it come up into my truck. Got pretty lucky, woke me up a bit more too heh. The only reason I was able to swerve just enough was my girlfriend letting out a blood curdling scream then bam..."I think it was a bear!".."it was all big round and black" lol

I'm working on my pics and vids now.
