On June 3rd 2006 there was A
TRS meet in CT. There were 11 trucks that attended- 10 rangers, and
soloslim in his F-150. It was raining lightly, and it had been raining
for a couple of days, so everyone was anticipating some good mud and
We met at the Stop &
Shop parking lot in hope valley RI at 10am on the 3rd. When we left
there around 11am, there were 7 of us there. The rest of the group was
delayed by traffic and met us later. We left the parking lot and
headed towards CT. Rhoderanger knows the area well, so he took us down a
state forest road so we could kill some time while waiting for the rest
of the group.
We all met up at a dirt lot on the side of the road in ct
We started off on the trail. It was easy at first, some water crossings,
and some rocks to get past. Everyone was having fun.

through and heard a loud band and then grinding noise from his rear end.
He was able to back out, and it was determined he wasn’t going any
further, so soloslim towed him back to the road.
At that point, some people decided to turn back. The rest of us kept
going though. A bit further down the trail, we turned onto a smaller
side trail that was narrower and a lot rockier in the bogs
there were a few stucks at that point, and some body damage, but nothing
that couldn’t be fixed with a good swift kick.
We continued down the trail through some more rock bogs, some water
crossings, and some mud.
We ended up meeting another club that was on a trailride too. They
invited us to stop and eat with them, so we parked, and watched them
play around on the rocks in their jeeps
We spent some time playing on the rocks. McRanger and SharperTouch
tackled the harder sections.
from there we headed back to the trailhead, and from there, back to the
