Field and Forest Opening Weekend 2016
Had an awesome time this past weekend wheeling the best trails in New England with a couple J-O guys and their buddies. It was cool to be able to take them through trails they haven't done or might not thought they could get through, since this place is a step above what they are normally used to.

I only took a handful of pics, so hopefully I can get my buddy to send me all his and the others post up as well.


Packed the truck and loaded the Jeep on the trailer Friday AM and headed up. Got there around 2PM on Friday. Lou (Angrytj) & Nick (Tonellin) and their 2 buddies were already there and playing around on some of the blue trails, so my buddy, who was riding along with me, and I set up camp while they rode out to meet us. Went back out to hit a couple of the blacks and a few more blues before the sun went down.

Sat around the fire Friday night, BSing and drinking. Woke up in the AM and went back out to hit another black trail before Nick, his buddy Chris and Lou's buddy Mike headed back home.

After those 3 took off Lou and I went back out with a JKU on 37's in tote that had no one to roll with. He followed us around earlier that day as well. Lou and I hit the extreme rock garden that pics do no justice of. We both made it with no problem at all being it was sooo dry out.

Then we hit anther black trail "Buzzkill". Both made it through the gatekeeper entrance and then my buddy jumped in my rig, got all bound up in a tight spot and bam! Snapped the short side RCV. Certainly a "buzzkill". Got my rig winched back to flat and then ate the engine burritos we forgot about throwing on the block before we headed back out. Limped out to camp.

Swapped in a spare stock shaft Lou had brought with him and we decided to hit another black "Lake Trail". Started the entrance which is a tough uphill rock garden with a ledge or two. Got to the very top, needed a bump to get up the ledge and bam! Winched my rig up, pulled the inner shaft and parked it. Walked behind Lou and the JKU spotting when needed. Called it a day after they got through the trail.

Generally three unless the file size is to large. BadMonkey and I may have a fix figured out for picture size and orientation issues.

Couple vids. Me on the rock garden and Lou on the climb on Lake Trail. Neither look anywhere as intimidating as they really are in person.
