Wheelin the Canadian River

Two Sundays ago we loaded up the jeeps and headed out to the Canadian River. This is about 2 1/2 hours north of Lubbock TX. Between Amarillo and Dumas. In this picture we loaded 3 of the 4 jeeps going on my car hauler. Blue YJ is mine, the white TJ is the one I rebuilt for my wife and the '12 JK belongs to my sister-in-law. My in-laws drove their 97 TJ there. We would have had room for it on my trailer but no room in my truck.

Airing down before we hit the trails. Never been to this place before and really did not know what to expect. But by the end of the day we were all tired but had a blast. This was my wife's first time to drive her jeep without me in the passenger seat and only her second time ever to go wheelin. She did great!

My 2002 F350 dually. Bought it new in 2002 as a F250 and last year we "rebuilt" it and changed it over to a dually. Odometer reads 350k miles but we did put a new (used) motor in it and had the transmission rebuilt. I use it to haul my vehicles I buy back from the auction.

This is the area she got freaked out about. Every time she tried to move forward she would slide farther down in the "gulley". My middle child baled out of the jeep after wifey said "find your dad I don't know what to do" LOL. I didn't take over for her but did help guide her out of the situation.

Pretty much all the pictures I have. I do have some video's but not sure how to load them here. I'll work on that some more. One thing about my wife when I bought her this jeep she really was not interested in doing any trails or off road stuff. Just wanted to look cool driving around town and going back and forth to work. We went on vacation last month up in the rocky mountains of Colorado and she got her first taste of wheelin and fell in love with it. Matter of fact about 3 days into our vacation I let her drive down Elwood Pass in Colorado that crosses the Great Divide, she didn't let me drive from that moment on. And if there is any doubt on who's jeep it is. She put this sticker on it just to let me know. LOL

We go there a lot. Course we are only about 16 miles to the exit off the highway. If you head back this way let me know. We have several jeeps we go with all the time. It's a blast and lots of cool trails to ride on and some cool fairly easy climbs. Glad you enjoyed it. of course there are some really tough ones too

So the Canadian river is not only dry, but in Texas? Who Knew!

Just kidding, looks like fun. I had one set of grandparents that lived in Dumas and another that lived in Skellytown. Always wanted to have fun in a Jeep out there.

May be a little late but how was it? I can't view the photo. I'm trying to get places here in Texas that are nice and fun trails but nothing too extreme since I am just wanting to start out.
