Well I got surprised when I was showing off for a group sitting on the side watching me, only I didn't know they were watching me cause I was about to get stuck in a hole one of their rigs just got pulled out of.

now thats a deep subject
we had a little late start, more like 1:00, not noon. that was not too bad.
then tewsk's brakes went out on his ford about 1 or 2 miles from his place. he ran a stop sign and got into a crash. (no one was injured) he stayed behind and we kept on our way out to Sulivan rd. when we got there, there were already some other trucks stuck in the mud, only one from our group got hung up and not too bad. after pulling them out we went up to the cedar creek trails and it was very nice up there, i left a little early because of some electrical trouble. for the most part it was a good day.

yep good time. was a blast and very educational as some learned a thing of two on recovery and the importance of having tow points

A good day though and will meet up again and hit some more trails.

I guess nothing to serious, hit a truck that was pulling into his driveway. NO tickets or anything.
The truck was a bad truck so had to go home grounded.

Hey guys - here is a link to some pics I took. Should have had my camera out a lot more but like to keep it out of the dust as much as possible.
The last few pics are what happens when you hand the camera to a 12 yr old...

I will also add a post in the pics and video area for this ride.

We had a great time and definitely want to do it again! Thanks for leading guys!!

Thanks- I almost always have my camera with me on these rides.
We are ready to go almost any time (whenever we are not up north fishing). I know a couple more that would join us too from around here - they are probably just getting back from Drummond about now.
If you guys ever want to expore Benzie County up north, let us know. We know a few trails up there but nothing too bad. We are up there a lot.
We have a good camping spot up there for a couple of tents..
