Default Black diamond adventure 2018

Each year my selfand a couple buddies do what we call an extreme overland trip.

Last year we did virgina and west virgina. Ive share the vids alot so im sure youve all seen some of them.

This year we are doing ky and tn. 800 to 1000 miles depending on where the trail takes us. We will be hitting blackhouse mountain in ky then dropping into tn to run throygh the twma lands (royal blue, sanquist, tackett creek) and thrn back into ky to run harlan.

This is an extreme overlanding trip if you will. No tow rigs, just our trail rigs full of gear. 2 lane or less roads between all destinations. We will all types of trails from dirt road to extreme rock. We do these trips with very little scheduling and route planning as we like to see where the adventure takes us. Our plans will simply consist of a few planned points of interest and a couple must run trails.


The 3 rigs going are a
samurai with 16valve tracker engine, dual cases, linked rear locked axles 31s

Tracker yota axles tcase gears, lockers, 33s.

And my bii. 4.0 8.8 d44, lockers 35s.

It looks like a lot of fun the BII has a nice "been there done that" look to it.

Overlanding sounds fun but it would be a vacation in itself for me just to get somewhere to do it.

I i see your i iowa. I complain about ohio not having any large offroad areas, i can only imagine how it is thete.

The ole bronco has seen its fair share of trail use for sure. I got it from a memeber here who ive known for 15 plus years (bob myers). He purchased it in 91 and did the axle swap and engine swap prob late 90s. Ive had it to years now and did some suspension mods (planning to link it sometime in the future) added the cage and did some other make it my own stuff to update it a little. He put alot.of street and trail miles on it and i will continue to as long as i can.
