    Well a bunch of us went out wheeling on the weekend and my lazy ass just finally got around to posting it up /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Gives you an idea of the kind of wheeling we get around here. Well some of it anyways. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The brown K5 is my truck, Brown Betty. The big one on 40's is Dan, Highrider_44's. And the nice clean k10 is my Buddy Tyler. The jeep in the background is Kurt.

    LET THE PICS BEGIN!

    This is how you turn a truck on 40's with no steering.

    Just realized there were no pics of the jeep /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif oh well. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    All in all it was a wicked day. Got in about 10hrs of wheeling in all new areas. 4 trucks went in, the jeep turned around and 1 truck came out /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Too bad it wasn't mine. No spare /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif Oh well gave us an excuse to go back the next day /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Also gave me an excuse to order my brand new Iroks!!! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif They arrive at my door on Friday

    Anyways enjoy the pics /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Quite off camber. The pic hardly does it justice. and get this .. I did it on the way back with my flat tire /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif and then the ass end kicked out and we had a pretty interesting come-along rigging set up to get me out of that one /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    If you look at the pic you can see my tire tracks have already gone across.

    As far as the location I am in the Okanagan Valley. Live in Penticton but the trail was about 40km behind Summerland.

    Nothing but sticks for hundreds of miles in every direction /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif We get some good wheeling out here for sure.

    It took some balls thats for sure /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Gotta have faith in your spotters thats for sure. You always felt like you should be going more to the left to stay away from the edge but if you do you could get high enough to flip. The way back was easier cause you could watch your lower tire and see for yourself.

    Well would have been easier if not for the flat /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I know how pictures dont do anything justice, but I can see how paxx could have been in a bad way fast if he had kept on it.

    Hey Pax,I have a good friend in Penticton.
    Just a shot,but you know a guy named Gary Sylvester?

    He's a mechanic there in town,does some drag racing with his purple Dodge Swinger...He's been a Dodge man all his life though.
