Nice pics, looks like a blast. Glad to hear the GRC parts are holding up good. I still havenít even had a chance to try mine out. Green bronco still looks like itís the truck to beat in your group.

Thanks We always have lots of fun, that's why we even DO it. By the last 30 min. or so we were doin' a little "bumper cars" action and in no time we were laughin' so much my sides were hurtin'.
The tighter turns was the first thing I noticed with the knuckles, then the clearance on the rocks. Yeah, the little greeny meany has been givin' some lessons lately. But I'm sure it's only a matter of time 'til someone "removes the pebble from my hand".

Dammit, my pic's have blown out of the page again. I don't know what's goin' on, I'd think web-hosting would get it right. photobungled again! sorry guys

Dave and I hit the park again last weekend. He decided to put all of his "better" parts into his blue Chebby, then he bought a new set of Krawler T/As (predator compound) and some ProLine dual-stage foams for it too.




It really helped his truck. Now our rigs are more evenly matched again. His truck doesn't ride the sidewalls so much now. I like the better challenge.




It was hot and muggy that day so we just crawled around on a couple areas that were shaded. Luckily, they were some of our favorite sections.




A few of the spots that gave his rig the most trouble were in the sun and got skipped, so we'll have to go thru the whole stretch to see how even they really are .....



..... so I may still have an edge.
we shall see.

Thanks for lookin'. The pic' issue seems to have straightened out ..... keep your fingers crossed.

Thank ya, sir. Yeah, a little friendly rivalry helps improve your drivin'. It's not quite as fun if it's too easy.
Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend.

I was down in the yard crawlin' on the rock pile and decided to monkey around on an oak tree that grows beside the pile. (get it? ... monkey around )




I think the set-up works.



But, kinda like a kitten, once ya get up there ..... THEN WHAT?! Gettin' back down is a BITCH!

I took the Bronco down to the road-side rocks today. Crawled around for about an hour and a half, shot a few pic's.








All the rain we've gotten lately has crumbled away more of the rock. Makes for some new lines.





Shot one short vid' of the best climb spot.




Thanks for lookin' One day the pic's are okay ... the next day they're HOOOGE again. Danged if I know what's goin' on!

I took the Bronco down to the roadside rocks this past weekend, but my ipod overheated in the hot sun (didn't know they'd do that ) so it wouldn't shoot any pics. But I met up with Dave and Josh a couple of weekends ago at Fassnight Park and I did get a few shots there.




Dave loaned Josh his brand new Krawler TAs, so the Ghost rig was doin' a LOT better.



You gotta watch out or your buddies will try to get a shot in on ya. The little green machine still does it's job.



The guys decided to test their bumpers a little.




My truck made it up and down that spot okay, but not wanting to be left out .....



I found a spot to do a stinger-check. STILL TIGHT!
Another day of fun. In the end, Josh got a new set of tires and wheels (THANX dad ) and lost a little more body-film.



Dave already got another set of tires and wheels, black chrome this time. And speakin' of body-film .....



I got a new pair of predator compound Krawlers myself .... but I haven't put 'em on yet.

Thanks for lookin', tune in next time.

It was a beautiful summer day in the Ozarks so I went back down to the roadside rocks for some more fun. Shot a few pics and another little video.





Part of the challenge of this place is the crumbling rock that changes the lines, some places every pass. That also adds to the fun.



And other parts don't change at all.




Here's the vid'. You'll have to forgive the cameraman, he was tryin' to drive too (and he can't do both very well). And excuse the umbrella drop-downs, there ain't much shade beside the hiway so ya gots ta bring yer own.



Did you hear the birds? AAnnyway ....
Had lots of fun again, kinda becomin' a habit. Thanks for lookin', tune in next time ..... same bat-time, same bat-channel.

Thanks bud', it's turnin' into one of my favorite crawl-spots. I love the set-up. Most of the good area to crawl is right at eye level. You can stand in the hiway shoulder, 10 or 15-ft away from the occasional traffic, and crawl a 40-ft stretch of various rock obstacles without climbing or even walking much. An old fart like me appreciates the easy access. And I talked to the owners of the adjoining land and I have permission to park safely out of the way, but super nearby. Even right on top of the crawl-spot if I want to listen to my big-truck radio. And I drove past these rocks for over 10 years before realizing they might be a good place to scale-crawl. Sometimes treasures ARE hiding in plain sight.
Enjoy your scooters
