I won't be meeting up with you all at IGA since its not on the way from here.  I'll catch up with you guys on the trails.  We plan to be there around 8:30 or 9.  It looks like you guys run CB's on 14, so I'll give a shout when I get there if I don't see anybody.  See you tomorrow! James.

We'll see you about 9ish, it takes about an hour from the IGA in Gravette.  Try to meet us in the parking area so we can meet up with you.  Look forward to meeting you!  Randy, love the countdown feature on the event registration link.

Thanks for the pictures Dean.  Had a great time, just a little chilly, but otherwise a great day!  Welcome to Joey who wheeled with us again and was our first new member in 2011.  Also glad to meet James, from Iowa, and his family/friends, nice cherokee James. After everyone else left I went over to watch Matt and Brad Austin on Viagra.  Brad ended up breaking something on his rig but not before he went up the far right side!  Matt tried to climb the main section several times but was just too slick.  Matt had an amazing save though after he had climbed about halfway up he bounced and his rig went sideways about halfway up Viagra!  I just knew it was going to roll but Matt kept his foot in it and was able to drive across the face of Viagra for about 20-30 feet before he turned it back downhill and avoided the roll!  Best save I've ever seen.  Someone got video so I'm sure we'll se it posted somewhere soon.  I need to learn that manuver before I try rollover again!

 

Also thanks to David Austin for the Bubba Rope!  Now, who's going to get stuck so we can try it out? 8)

What a great day of wheeling!   Met new members Bill (super nice yellow 2 door JK), Dean and his soon to be lifted red four door, and James from Ohio (Nice XJ).  I think James enjoyed his introduction to OK off roading.  Disney offers such diverse terrain you really get a lot for your money (especially since it's free to wheel). 


I continue to be amazed at what these Jeeps can do.  Three of us made Rollover again, and Dean and I climbed one hill that was a combination of big rocks and steps that I just couldn't believe my little DD could handle.


Every time we go to Disney we find some new trails, hills, and notch's to run, all providing more experience in handling diverse terrain, and of course the rock garden is always a learning experience.  I learned my River Raiders Transfer case skid needs about another 3/8 piece of steel plate welded to it if it's actually going to protect my T-case.


Scott and I had a great run up Little Blue.  I thank God for the Smittybilt SRC Armor rock rails, as we literally laid on them most of the way through.  I have to give my BFG racing slicks a little credit, as they are pretty grippy on dry rock, but I'm still looking forward to some big ol' Pit Bull Rockers to take the JK to the next level of traction.


I think the only carnage for our club was Scott's tail light.  We may need to do a group buy on JK tail-lights, as they seem to meet obstacles with great regularity.


It was also a treat to fellowship with the fine folks from UCORA.  Judy was showing us how it's done in her Dragonfly, crawling up stuff that physics say should not be possible.  If I can ever get up the courage I may ask her to let me ride shotgun up the Wailing Wall just to see what driving vertically feels like!!


All in all, the Lord blessed us with some beautiful weather and a fun and safe run with our brothers and sisters in Christ, and for that we give thanks.

Yeah, Judy was so dang quick in her dragonfly i could not get a shot! She would start the climb, I would bring the camera up and she would be over the top and on her way!

 

My favorite picture is one of the Austins in the orange C4C crawler, where you can see the baby in the passenger seat all bundled and strapped in.

 

Was a fun day

Well we all had a great time as well and was glad to meet the ones I had not and the ones I missed maybe next time.  What a Great Turn out for the C4X4 first New Beginning Run.  We hope to put some more runs together and if we have good turn outs we will work on getting a little more formal.

 

Now for a little of the action you may have missed.  Matt Austin pulling off one of the best saves on Viagria we have seen.  Here is one shot.  We are still working on the Video we shot.

And Brad taking on the far right side of Viagria that has just been climbed by 2 other people that we know of.  Whipped it the first time then blew the front diff before he got over to Viagria.

As for the C4x4 buggy.  Blew the reat drive shaft and it appears like both front axles shafts.  Guess we will find out for sure this week.  Any way had to have Matt tow the buggy back to camp.
