    Sounds fun. Great place to go. We went this spring and had a really good time. You guys had some rain there lately, so hopefully it's not too muddy for you guys. Gotta try that hill climb that I attempted. Make sure to have some tow lines......

    Have fun and post some pics!!!

    Hope its not too sloppy, calling for rain on Thursday and I am on ATs.

    Gonna have to rustle up a flag mount this week and I should be all set. Glad to see there are some open areas to play too.

    Just tie everything down good. It can rough. I had my DiamondBack bed cover go sailing at one point in the whoops! The sand is pretty gritty, more like really small rocks, so getting stuck shouldn't be an issue. There are a couple of places to get some nice air, just have to look for them. If you get too muddy, just take a drive up one of the creeks......

    A decently built jeep should be able to tackle the hill climb. As for a raptor, unless you plan to air it out the top I'd sit at the bottom and watch.

    The hill "climb" was the easy part :)

    Well it was a good time for sure! Went with a Jeep and a Tacoma so we did a fair amount of trail stuff back in the woods. People were SHOCKED to see it way back in the woods to say the least. My Co-driver was huge in getting through all of the trees and such. Got to play a little in the dunes too. Pretty impressed where this thing will go to say the least since this was my first tiime really hitting the trails.

    If I keep going here I will need to get some rock sliders before rip the running boards off on something..

    Working on pics, I didn't take many at all but the other guys were snapping away.
