I do like wheeling when it is muddy.  Nobody ever wants to go when I suggest it though.  Mad   Without pictures of Daniel, I will pass it off as an embellishment similar to Casey's.

The mud at URE is much different than the mud at Windrock.  It was like driving on ice in several spots. The mud at Windrock was almost sticky.

I didn't even try The ledge this time.  The bottom is so washed out that my bumper would not have cleared the rock.  Two very capable trucks did try though with no success, so I figured there was no sense tearing my bumper up for it.

I'm sorry about not being able to make it today and boy i really wanted to. Slight miscommunication with the wife and she took off this morning leaving me with the little one. Oh i tried and tried to beg my little girl to go play in the mud with daddy and his friends but to no avail. hate that i missed it.

 I'm surprised andy didn't make it up the ledge. He's got 37's.

 I think it had less to do with tire size or getting up the ledge and more to do with the fact there was just absolutely no chance of getting traction at the bottom of the ledge in the mud and muck.

Nice meeting up with y'all. Jandrews and I were not expecting others. I kept blowing the fuse for my air compressor so I had no front locker. Other than that I had a great time.

 The muck definitely made it a lot more fun!

Glad to get to ride with you guys.  Had a blast, even though we only ran 1.5 trails Smile
