The Magic Schoolbus was never meant to be a mall crawler. I picked it up last Wed and after about 1,500 road miles I had the chance to take it out on the trails.

I took my son with me and we hit Hidden Falls Adventure Park outside Marble Falls, TX. I've been here several times in my old built 2000 Grand Cherokee (4.5" long arm lift on 33's with auto-lockers front and rear, wheeled hard from Texas to Moab), so it was a great comparison to what I'm used to. I continue to be impressed with how easily this thing walks up obstacles completely stock & can't wait to see where it takes me over the years as I build it up.

Absolutely awesome. I’m in the Houston area. Hoping to pick up my badlands this weekend and head out there soon.

Not here, but there are usually a lot of friendly people out that can help if you're in a bad spot. It's best to go out with a group and to have good self-recovery options, but if you're really in a bind you can usually barter for some good will (I've leant out tools to people on the trail who brought them back to me at my campsite later).

I'm sure plenty of Jeep owners would love to recover a new Bronco just for the story... 😂
Haha. … and post it on the internet.

No need to convince me. Let me know if you want to head out sometime and I'm happy to go with you. There are also plenty of bypass areas and room to turn around if things get too sketchy.
Keep me in the loop

10-4. We will be driving back to DFW the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I will let you know if we decide to hit Hidden Falls for a few hours on our way home.
Plan on hitting on Friday after Thanksgiving if you are interested?

Looks like I was able to talk the wife into going next Saturday the 27th. We will be driving up from SA on our way back to DFW so would probably get there late morningish. Will have the wife and kids with.

I think that might work, let me check with the boss and see if I can drag her and the twin monsters out there.

Thanks! Sounds like a blast! I have to take some family pics for a friend that day, but I’m also not getting my Bronco until late December.

Rig looks awesome, love it! I was thinking I'd get a magic School bus sticker for my cyber orange bronco too! My friend said I should get a Mr. Frizzle vanity plate :ROFLMAO:

I'm in for Saturday the 27th. Let's call it the first unofficial Central Texas meetup. Anyone who wants to come wheel with us that day is welcome!

Hidden Falls opens at 8am Saturday, but mid-morning-ish works for me. Want to shoot for about 10 at the park entrance? It might be busy that day with the holiday.

@broadicustomworks - It looks like they're closed on Thanksgiving and reopen Friday at 9am.

I'm also up for doing another meetup in December for anyone who can't make Saturday.

I will be there by 11. We are coming from SA and the wife already declared that we won't be leaving the hotel before 9am. But don't wait on me, I can always meet up with the group when I get there. We will probably stay for about 3-4 hours.

Also, I went to Bridgeport OHV on Saturday and it was surprisingly not busy.

Can't make this week. Family obligations. But December would be good!
