Lazy Saturday Trail Run

Ok guys... Unkljon and I figured we would go out and try to inspire you all to get out there and find some cool trails.

This is a little-known trail in Baltimore County... henceforth known as the Lazy Saturday Trail. We don't want a bunch of yahoos out there to mess it up, so the location will remain classified.

Anyways... heres the pictures:

Stop at the entrance to prepare and check out the trail.


I need that lift, and I need it soon! High centered on a rut coming out of the mud.




Running tandem down the very overgrown trail.


Log... no obstacle to John's beast.


Working through some ruts.






It was a bit muddy in some areas.



Enjoy guys. I've got a quick video uploading. I'll post that later.

As always.... drive it dirty.

Did unkljon make that front bumper himself? That's what I'm wanting to do. Looks like alot of fun. Maybe one day we can have an east coast offroad meet. maybe on a long weekend or something.

Hey Gang,

No, I'm not even remotely skilled with a Welder nor do I have the background to do custom work,,,good question though, anyway my Fab guy did this entire thing free-hand.. He just took the truck for the day and in between us going back and forth with digital pictures in email, he did this from scratch..

This thing is a BIG TIME SH$$ KICKER. It pretty much goes through anything,,

Very good at helping taking down overgrown brush on marked trails....as well as it protects the front end in a big way.

I've been looking into this. Not too many places around that would have an extensive enough trail system to keep us occupied for a whole weekend.

Right now, I am thinking of the George Washington National Forest. Its pretty much smack dab in the middle of the east coast, so everyone should be able to go. I have a few trails in mind, but the following link is a map of all of the forest access roads.
http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/gwj/maps_brochures/mvum.shtml

Its going to take a good amount of planning and coordination, but I would love to do this. I think we could get at least 5-6 trailvoys out there.

Off roading, camping, beer, grilling... doesn't get much better.
