Badlands trip 5/23/09

WOW I had so much fun at the badlands!!!! I met up with two fellow jeepers that had never been there before too. One was an old 1980 Jeep and the other was a 97 wrangler with 35' tires and a SKYJacker Lift kit!!! Here are some pics of the crazy even'ts that took place that day. Lets start it off with the best part!!!! LOL OPPS and no life guard on duty lol




Team Pull!!!!




You should have seen the water poor out of that jeep. We pulled the Spark Plugs out and turned it over and wow was there a crap load of water coming out of that engine. It started up once and then died. It was a long tow back to the trailer but we made it.!!!!

Well the other two Jeeps headed home and I ended up going out by myself and not 10mins alone I got stuck with no winch to pull me out. I fell into a 2 foot hole. I was looking at the trail then wow all i could see was tree tops lol.



Help has come!!!! This guy was huge and had no problem pulling me out!!!


FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you went to the badlands and didn't invite anyone?

thats a fun place, that spot where that cj got drowned is never that deep. i've gone through it a hundred times. that was really weird, glad i wasn't there, cuz i would've done it. we do that on the way to the quarry everytime.

you wouldn't have spent the night there, but you would've been paying the badlands an expensive stuck fee. they'll come yank you out, for a price.

next time bring some more friends.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Those are some good pics, I went through there the same day and it was a bit deeper than I remembered but i am a bit higher so i was able to make it through. Had I been watching this forum i woulod have gladly joined up for the weekend as it was I went with a guy who has a coil suspension on his YJ it was pretty cool watching him flex out. The tubes were pretty deep as well, my friend was testing them in one of the pics.
