joe, i would not recommend camping up there in january. it can be 40-ish at the bottom of the mountain, but up there it can be completely different 10's-20's with a bad wind. Its almost a completely different world up there in the Winter. I hunted on that mountain one time. it was my 1st year hunting, I fell asleep for an hour and woke up covered in 2" of snow. We came down off the mountain and there wasnt any snow or even rain.

Never bent a leaf. Broke a TRE, twice and exploded a drive slug.

Actually rocks are not as nasty as mud. Mud requires more upkeep.because it will get into all the bearings.

My buddy in the heep is running 32's. He did some Blacks last time out. But then again he doesn't have that damn mud plow of an IFS system. LOL



Then he got cocky, LOL. Another heep on Haze's strap.

I would like to see the trails you guys did on Sunday after I left this time and then we can go where ever Ed thinks my truck can go. I already informed the guy that came to get me last ime that he is on call incase I break again.

I'm also debating going up another 2 inches and adding a set of 37's if cash allows before this trip.
