In case you guys didn't know, someone stole my dads trailer this past Sunday. We have been doing whatever we can to find it, but not having much luck.-





Needless to say, no wheeling until we either find this one, or buy a new one.-

If anyone happens to run across it, please let me know ASAP

It wasn't in our possession so it doesn't matter. The guy who was borrowing it has an insurance who is likely not going to pay for it. He offered to buy a new one, but lord knows how long it will take before that happens...

Yea, dad has already given up. He is looking for new trailers now, but I haven't. I'm going to keep looking for a while. I had a lot of money and time in that trailer too.

What about the guy who had it? Is he still offering to reimburse you and your dad?

Sorry it happened

Thanks Mike. I have been watching all the Craig's list in our area like a hawk. Biggest thing is junk yards and scrap yards. That trailer is likely worth a nice chunk of coin at the scrapper.

As for the guy who had it, yes. He said he would buy dad another trailer, but my dad tends to be too nice on some things. The guy is a real close friend, so dad feels bad asking him to pay for it. Which is why I am trying so hard to find it

I would think somebody going to a scrapyard with a perfectly good trailer might seem a little suspicious... im sure the yards dont care though, just like when somebody shows up to sell a big load of copper.

Exactly. They do write down EVERYTHING and driver license info. Which is why scrap yards are helpful too.

June 3rd, 2012- Daniel Boone National Forest, Sand Lick area(Slade)

(few pictures right now. More will come tonight)

FINALLY got the Ex out to Slade. I love this place. It's super quiet, GORGEOUS, and free. Not to mention its an hour and 15 minutes away... There were only 4 rigs, 2 basically stok TJ's, a very mild Tacoma on 35's, and the Sarge. We left the sand lick camping area around 11:30 and headed towards Widow Maker. The stock guys had a good time crossing the creeks and hitting the mud holes, but my buddy in the yota and I wanted a little more of a challenge...

We got to Widow Maker and the beginning is a cake walk. The trail is basically a creek bed, with a couple big *** rocks in it. When I say big *** rocks, I'm talking Smart Car sized. There are multiple spots were you have to crawl over or crawl past these rocks. A couple downed trees, and a little mud make for a really fun trail. It's technical, but doesn't require a lot of wheel speed or doesn't get too tipy.-








Then we headed towards Stump Cave. The trail leading to here is long and very fun. Lots of mud holes that are about 1-2.5 ft deep and all easy. The stockers were flinging muddy water all over the place. When we got to the cave, there was a nice hill climb on the left... And I wanted to scare my little brother and his friend, so we went playing...


Took about 6 tries, but finally got up. Then I had to come down the other side...


Then we played in the cave and headed back home

Hmmm I know how that one works. Drunk spotter is worse than no spotter.

Yea, I'm not too keen on people trying to keep it a secret. It's so close to being shut down, people need to know about it, and get out there and use it. Only thing is, vehicle has to be street legal, so no bikes, quads, or side by sides
