Shout out to @bltfrdtgh @RogueSqdn @Panzer948, and anyone else I may have missed that is on here and didn’t get to talk to directly and get their screen name…

Had a blast. Like, a major fun day out there. Laid back, great conversation, friendly people, no one acted rushed to get done.

We tackled Wolf’s den, Falls Dam, Rocky Mtn Loop, Sawmill. At the end, a bare handful of us went up the back side of Daniel again. But were stopped short of the summit by a large group of Jeepers who were having a memorial service for a lost club member and friend, spreading his ashes. Of all reasons not to be able to finish it, I’ll take it. Respect to the departed, may he Rest In Peace.

We were able to give a few people their first taste of off-roading, first “scrapes” on the Control Arm bracket, first lesson in airing down and why, first time in anything other than 2wd.

People were pushing comfort levels, wanting more and more, and you could see the apprehension fade away the more dirt we travelled.

I chose the routes, and felt bad that part of one trail was degraded a bit since the last time I’d run it, and some owners of some pristine new Broncos did drag on a fairly medium rock at one point.

I think ALL of us did on the same one today to some degree. Even the one guy on 37’s had a moment of struggle and hit his rear CA bracket as well.

The camaraderie and general good will among B6G owners was a giant breath of fresh air. Being a former Jeep guy, I can say most groups of off-roaders are generally very fun, cordial, helpful. But today just felt different.

One driver had his dash light up with random warnings before we ever got off the dirt road, but cleared it up after jiggling around connections and no issues or breakdowns the rest of the day.

I don’t know how to attach videos here without them being a link to YT or the like, so here are some of the few pics we were cognizant to try and grab.

As other members of the ride along share them, I’ll post them up here.

Get out there. Put it in 4wd, soak up a few hours of nature. You will thank yourself later.

Thanks for leading the pack! We had a blast and speaking for myself, I couldn’t have done it without you.

As for the control arm, thanks for assuring us that everything was ok. 👍

Here’s a video I took of Mark posing (posted to Twitter):

we were going to go up Daniel but we missed the turn lol…

cant wait to see everyone again!! What a great group of people!!

I’ll go through my dash cam footage tomorrow (watching the Braves now) and will post a few.

it’s the Ford Accessories dash cam and only came with an 8gb card (haven’t upgraded it yet), so I unplugged it after leaving the trails so it wouldn’t get overwritten.🤞

Looks like everyone had a blast. Looking forward to more footage. Any ideas when you may do this again? I hope to upgrade to 35s soon. Not planning to go out much until then. Thanks!

I’ll try and remember to come back here and advise.
as well as it went, I’d imagine many more will come.

Wish I could have joined, we were actually in Austin for the off-roadeo.

Will definitely try to make the next one.

Hi all, great time for sure. Here are a few pics I took! I was buy myself so had to take several while driving. The last pic is what my rear seat looked like after removing the rubber floor mats (so I could drive home and they not blow out). I call them dust catchers now. Let's not wait too long before the next one!

PS: Note the Land Rover hung up on the rocks to the left (about 4 pics down). He just sadly waived as he watched us drive by. Not sure the story though...

You guys did fine, and your positive “let’s do it” approach was just great to be around!
One thing about these vehicles is that they are (for most of us!) more capable and willing to do more than what we think they can.

Next trip will be June 25. I’ll update on here the start time (meet up time at the Outpost) once I nail that down some.
expecting 9-10am start time.
All are welcome, wheel what ya got.
I’d probably fanboy over any EBs that showed up for a bit, and Jeeps are welcome too.
We plan on doing Dickey Bell on that trip. But can split off to 2 groups for anyone who doesn’t want to attempt it, even with the hill climb bypass that is there.

Thats fast! Although I think I have a different club show I am doing (separate hobby) on that weekend so can't make it (I will confirm). Anyway, dont count me out for the next one coming after. I wouldn't mind going straight to Dickey Bell or that backside of Daniel you were discussing on the next trip; since we got broke in on the moderate trails yesterday.
