Anybody want to go on a trail run with me (LC200) and 2 other people in jeeps? Always make it a point to, halfway along the trail grill up some food… We are thinking bunce/school house/plane crash especially (5-22-2022)... also open to ideas. We keep it pretty chill

Also if anybody has done any trails recently and has recommendations I'd love to hear them!

Going regardless so feel free to jump in...not sure of meet up/leave time yet. Not rooster crowing early though

It's all good it's my fault. We decide to do these trips pretty last minute/impulsively… The irony is the person who said we should do it backed out ha ha. Next time I will give more fair warning… Like on a Wednesday.



Ended up going to Yankee Hill, did 3/4 of it before climbing an angled hill and the first two vehicles having a little bit of trouble due to line choice… Landcruiser 200 is a big mama that likes to slide a lot thanks to gravity. Had a snow recovery session with a winch and another person getting pulled out, then I got yanked backward the other way it was fun.


Trail report: Yankee Hill is super slush and if you like going through puddles it is a dream land! I can't count how many running board height puddles there are, some deeper, three of them linked at one point. It was like a public pool.... I see a lift and sliders in my future however.

A little yankee trail update: it's pretty chill/need some skinny pedal here and there until after the range hill. Then when you start to go uphill from there it gets deep in sections until, I want to say the third fork, it became undoable for us. The left route has the huge boulders and the right side has damn near a hairpin next to a tree . That's about as far as we got with a lifted 89 wrangler(33's Chevy rear axle) carrying my butt through some of the super deep sections en route to that fork. Fun regardless and got winched up a section after my axle became a snow plow(31's stock ht). Also, does limited slip count as "unmolested?" I'm sure you can find a creative place to hide locker switches, but I get a kick out of doing these trails in my 69 40 "stock" but as I stretch my experience I am starting to understand the need.

Also I learned to strictly over see anything that involves your recovery equipment and make sure the people you're helping understand to wait for prompts from you. I was reserving my vehicle in case the primary recovery vehicle lost it on the sheet of ice that leads to the campground gate(if you start from Central city side) while these two vehicles try to recover the Nissan pick up. They went from trying to pull out this Nissan from behind to the front, and while I pulled my vehicle forward and out of the way for the second attempt. The people I was helping removed my set up and reconnected my ARB soft shackle and tow strap to the Nissan Front end and my soft shackle got damaged. They got the nissan out, but my soft shackle is probably now only recovery rated for 10,000 instead of 14,500 due to the one ripped strand and abrasions. A dedicated leader is the role I should've taken.
