@Roert42 I know you won’t be able to bring the dodge, but are you at least going drive up in the Ranger and ride the trails with someone else?

We're going to skip this one, unfortunately.

If it was nicer out, probably still would have taken the dodge since the main damage is mostly just a couple of windows.

I'll figure something out for another ride soon.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Your supposed to roll the windows up before the mud holes haha. Like I'm the one to talk haha. Zane never remembers and I always have mud inside the cab.
I get too hot with the windows up.

If you have the windows up when you go through the mud, they get covered in mud. Then it dries, you roll the window down, and scratch the sh!t out of the window. I learned that lesson years ago.

It’s called working air conditioning… these newfangled trucks have it.

I ripped that out years ago. Anyone want it? Complete System. Took it all out in one mess without opening any fittings.

I roll them down right after so I smear it nicely over the whole window haha. That way the whole window is blurry so you don't notice the scratches

Here's some pictures. Snoranger's probably will be better and he's more of a shutter bug than I am. Plus Ryan and Snoranger took some video too.

The cabin








At an overlook spot





At another spot we stopped



We stopped at the big drag bucket by the east side entrance for some photos when we were all done for the day.
