Short video of some trails from Saturday. It has finally cooled off here in Rooster Poot TN to where top down wheeling is enjoyable.

Looks like the Charlie and Ewan school of off roading.

Why use a perfectly good dry trail when you can use a mud and water filled rut and take pictures of how "tough" the conditions are?

obviously you have not wheeled in the TN backwoods. Lots of trails around these holes are much too narrow for a jeep, and was made by a 4wheeler...

This one however may have involved a dare.

What's wrong with that way? Looks to me there were 3 mistakes:
1) afore mentioned nice path right next to where you that is non red-necked
2) lockers are nice
3) winches are even nicer- especially on big bumpers designed to have them

I remember how many countless times I put mine in the same situation. It got old quick- especially when I moved places that had rock crawling.

Watched a guy barrel into a hole like that. Some dickweed put a big ass rock in the middle. After that I'm never first through the mudhole.

Yeah and I only do mud if it's in the way of some perfectly good rocks.

That looks painful on the front driver's side. Need to turn passenger pretty bad... Where's your spotter?

As soon as the drivers front is on the rock in front of it I need to go hard left. It took 4 of us 7 hours to do this. No carnage and we made it out before dark. Spotter is stage left. Don't know WTF I was looking at.
