    Stillwell Stompers on Easter Saturday

    Anyone planning to go? Nick and I are thinking of taking his JK, and possibly camping or staying in a hotel nearby.

    I'm thinking of taking a 2002 Grand Cherokee with a mild lift and 31's. Hopefully I don't completely destroy it in it's first trail ride!

    You mean, "when in doubt, throttle out?"

    Trail report!

    We were the little jeep group. A JK, an XJ on 33" boggers (Marcel), YJ, JK (Nick), WJ (me), and a Willy's (Lambert) headed into the woods together and slowly made our way through what I would call "the warm-up trail" to get a feel for the conditions in the woods. It wasn't as sloppy as I had anticipated, which was nice for me running a WJ on bald 31" mud terrains on it's first off road adventure. It performed surprisingly well for about 10 minutes and then overheated due to what is suspected to be a faulty electric fan control module. So we parked it and I rode with my roomate Nick in his white JK all day. He is still new to the sport and starting to catch the bug a little more. It's a stick shift, so that provides some extra challenge, but he did well. I'm trying to get him to use more skinny pedal. Marcel bumped a few trees with the XJ throughout the day and broke his grill off, but that was really our biggest breakage. We were out of the woods in time for me to get to my dad's house to watch the NCAA hoops semifinals. Go Duke!

    Here's a link to the facebook page for said ride. It includes photos from the group of bigger rigs as well. From Ernie's report the big group took it pretty easy, at least for the first half of the day. https://www.facebook.com/events/1403662099947416/
