Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
They are known to get torched if you leave them there.The Toyotas really rule these trails. The jeep guys are mostly show jeeps and they haven’t been bringing them out on these trails. There are some hard core jeeps for sure though. Hopefully we get some runs to the glacier in again soon.
I agree. I would not do these trails solo. But if I did I would need to bring my chainsaw and a rear winch.
I’m hoping to set up a camping rig and as I learn more about these trails (I’ve only been here a year) we can go solo to some points and spend the night.
Bear and moose are out there and need to be taken seriously but also rouge “manimals” that might be on the trails. So danger comes in many forms.
You will see trucks on these trails that got super stuck or broken down. They are known to get torched if you leave them there.
Nice neighborhood.They are known to get torched if you leave them there.
If I had been alone I’d been pretty hosed without some rear winch. I had the come-a-long and used it to pull the truck over as you saw as I got pulled back in the path of that tree. Oh, I’m bringing my chainsaw next time too.I wanted to watch and wanted to be smug that I can't get stuck once I get my front winch in place, but your narration makes me unhappy I haven't put on a rear mounted winch too.
I learned long ago, two wheel drive go where you want. STUCK,.... lock it up four wheels and go home.Easy Pleasy!! 12K Hydro on the front, 12K electric on the rear!!

I learned many decades ago that the front winch can usually only pull you farther into whatever your were stupid enough to drive off into to begin with..
EDIT, that oil is from my JLG manlift I was using to work on the shop door...
