I always like to see the pics from trail runs, so I try to share some of my own. This is actually from a trip in early June that we made, however I've been so busy that I haven't had time to post them. The only way it was going to happen was to waste some time at work, so here you go!

It was a fantastic trip all the way around. The only carnage at all was a scratch on my truck when a tree grabbed the shovel off my rack and scraped it against the truck. There were four of us-- The THORparts H3, a built Samurai, and a CJ, and me. All of us had friends or family in tow, so it was a good sized group. Props have to go out to Sam, the driver of the CJ. I had absolutely no idea that this was his first time wheeling until near the end of the day. He drove like a pro!

Image
The Sammy. It's ridiculously capable, but we couldn't resist giving him crap about his lack of A/C while we were comfortable in the Hummers.

Me

This hill doesn't look like much, until...

Image
...you notice just how close 4Speed came to those trees. That was our first real obstacle, and it nearly started with a bang...literally. An H3 sliding sideways down that hill and missing all the trees was something to see. Unfortunately, everyone was in shock at the moment that there are no pics of the slide.

Sam Again

A VERY steep, long climb. As is typical, photos seldom show grade, however you can kind of reference teh Sammy and people on the opposite side. Google Earth shows about a 250ft elevation difference. 4speed has a builtin clinometer....he may be able to tell you how steep it actually is.

Group of swamp people. Couple girls in the back of the UTV were covered from head to toe in mud and having a great time.

Interlake is Indiana's hidden jewel of wheeling. Even a lot of people who live in the area don't even know about it. It's near Lynnville (which is just east of Evansville), so it is a little drive, but well worth it. It's state owned land, very similar to Redbird but not quite as developed.

Mud covered girls? Sorry, I only got one pic.

Here's a link--> http://www.in.gov/dnr/outdoor/4226.htm

Now, I must forewarn you, if I turn you guys on to this place and you go crowding up my favorite wheeling spot, I'm going to be mad!

In all seriousness though, I like it as much (or better) than Badlands. On top of that, it's 100% free-- no admission fees.

Its about twice as far as the Badlands too...so the saved admission fee is not much with twice the fuel.
Considering most on this board are from central and northern, IN

Probably don't have to worry about us overrunning the joint.

That said its nice to wheel something different than the Badlands all the time. That's one reason I'm going to rocks and valleys next week...its a bit farther than the Badlands, but also something different.

Lets do it! I'm thinking I'm just gonna get a tow bar to haul the Jeep with the truck for the time being, I'll just wheel easy and bring spare parts..
