A seperate Stave Lake wheelin thread...(better than Jesse's ;) )

Well Saturday nite we decided to have a fire up at Stave. Got a little muddy. Sunday rolled around and I got a phone call that we were going up again. I happily obliged.
Most of the pics of me are me getting stuck, I had too much fun to stop and take pics of me lol.
Only carnage was my truck. I went through a deep deep hole twice, and the third time I thought I would hit it with a little more speed. Bad idea, really bad idea. The truck drowned, and then stalled out. Water was up to the top of my bumper. Figured I would give it one go, and to my surprise, she started right up, and them procede to drive me right out the water. I pulled the lid off the airbox, and this is what I saw:

It'll buff out, don't worry....

Got my buddy Spencer to run me up to Lordco, grabbed me a new airfilter, cleaned out the box and ran it for the rest of the day. I swear to god it ran better that before lol.

All-Terrains for the loss

Why don't you go up in the trails?

Trails are fun, but I've been there enough that I have ran most of the ones my truck can handle 10+ times. You can only take so many lines to challenge yourself before you get bored. The next step up, you need alteast 35's to avoid winching and seriose body damage. 3-4 times a year the mud flats flood, and the terrain changes just enough to make things interesting. Besides a couple of the guys I was with do not have the skill or patience to hit the harder trails.

Lol yeah almost too much. I gotta concentrate on getting my quad back together and stop beating on my truck. Blah that will never happen. But I agree, I love the OHV. There seems to be alot more power down low. Really nice for crawling, even with my crappy 3.73's.

Well Stone, I hate to break it to you, but it is sand. It is sandy muddy lake bed crap lol. Like I said before, the trails are cool around here, but I have been going to this place for a few years now. Things are getting old lol. Time to explore. There are a few places along the river bed that create some really cool trails. Once the water comes back up the flats, it wipes everything out and then creates new ones. There are a new set of trails 3-4 times a year. Alot of off camber, flexy fun. Keeps the sphincter nice and tight
