    The rig had bogers all around on it and the PO got it stuck one night and left it out in the hills till the next day to recover it. Got back out there and all the boggers where slashed except the spare. Bummer too cause those tires were like 90%. We are going to boot them and tube them for another friends offroad only rig. Found these thornturds the same size cheap so put them on.

    Hey no problem man. Check out the club website here www.powellvalley4wheelers.com. We have about 120 acres of land. Mostly a large baja/motocross track and a 300' drag strip with lights and all. We have natural springs so endless mud through the middle and a few rocks but nothing spectactular. We generally do a memorial day fun day out at the track kinda a free to anyone who wants to come and bring food for a pot luck bbq. Check out the events forum on the site for future runs. I just got that setup so not alot of action yet but I try to post everything happening. We are currently working with the forest service to adopt a few trail in the sunlight basin area in the beartooth mountains too. Anytime you wanna come up give me a hollar and you'll have a place to stay and whatever.

    Hey Jedd did you ever meet a guy from the basin area with a blue jeep thing and a tube buggy? Met him on a trail near meeteetsee a few month ago and he mentioned a blazer from lander area that was in the magazines. I thought he was kind of arogant and his definition of "built not bought" was more on the lines of "bought and bolted on".

    yeah I didn't care for the way he protrayed himself and his group that day and kinda left a sour taste to me. Lots of fullsize rig bashing. Did you do the rock crawl this last year or year before? Ever get to billings for the mud bogs?

    I was hoping to have the truggy running for that but gave up on that since I didn't want a comp being its maiden voyage. I was going to go watch too, one of my best friends is the president of the billing club and I am the pres of the powell club so quite often I try to get some people to go up and help out with activities and such. Didn't make the crawl this year though.

    We are restarting our club here in Lander, Wind River 4X4 ,might have to get with you to discuss club stuff. In the past I havent been much of a club team player, but am realizing that the more the better when trying to keep trails open and maybe opening up some cool rockcrawling areas. Our BLM and forest circus people are less than hopeful when it comes to 4 wheeling stuff.

    definately, power in numbers. Already around here the Macullah Peaks and Pryor Mountains have been shut down. The forest service is VERY willing to work with us on trail conservation so thats cool. Checkout Families for Outdoor Recreation ( http://www.ffor.org/ ) too. Anyways, I'm off to bed, I'll catch ya later Jeff.
