    Need to get front/rear tow points, and something besides street tires before venturing off the road...
    Lol, we were on street tires! But we did not get into mud. It did well on the sand, dirt, and rocks, though!

    I went on street tires the first time, wasn't terrible. I never really had good offroad tires until I lifted. I had some generic All terrains when I was stock. Then I lifted and put 31" Goodyear Kevlar MTR's on.

When I stop, it gets shut off, put in gear, and usually at least one rock as a wheel chock, if on more than a mild hill. On boat ramps, I take a chock with me and set it behind the driver side front wheel.

    My version of acrophobia would make Black Bear Pass a heart attack, so I'll probably never do it. But if I did, NO FRIGGIN WAY am I getting out of my Jeep.

    I'm so glad all involved survived and are healing. I'm also glad it didn't collect the Jeep with the dash cam or anyone else. What a scary deal.

    On another note, my brother, boys, friend, and I got home last night after a week on the Appalachian Byway. It was a BLAST! The off-roading wasn't challenging with the exception of a few spots, but the trails and scenery were gorgeous! We unfortunately only made it maybe 1/4 through the Virginia segment. It was getting better and better as we went, too. We'll be going back sometime to finish the Virginia route. We're also plotting and planning on when to get to VT/NH/ME. My brother had so much fun he's selling his Camaro ZL1-1LE to get either a 4 door Rubicon or a Gladiator Rubicon. The old JK impressed the heck out of him! Now the clean up commences...ugggh. My poor JK ate the JLs dust most of the trip, so its a huge mess. Never has the value of a cabin filter been more obvious! I'll post a few pics when I can.
    WOW!!!! can't wait for more pics!!!!! Like that mist of clouds BELOW the Jeeps!!!!

    It was incredible. This pic was taken after some of it had burned off. I've been slacking, so I'll try and post a few more up this weekend. The whole trip had scenery that was just breathtaking. 5 straight days of it.

    Went down to Madison yesterday with the Hendricks County Jeep Club. It was a nice, scenic drive with a stop at Hinkle's Hamburger shop and a short run up Beecamp Road. Gorgeous day for Jeeping around!

    Heading down that way with Hoosier Wranglers next weekend. Lots of fun little roads in that area. I plan to snap pics and record the route on the GPS.

    Went down to Madison, IN for a little event put on by Hoosier Wranglers and Fat Boy Jeepers. We did the road rally this time around. The rally didn't go by the waterfall on Indiana 7 north out of Madison, so we ran by for a picture afterwards.

    They put together a bit of a video of the road rally here:


    A few others ran over to the Dirty Turtle for some off-roading.
