Late notice 5/18 run at TSF
 
Hello all I have a small group together for wheeling this Saturday may 18 if anyone is interested. This will be my break in run for my Ford 8.8 swap and 4.88 gears and cannot wait to hit the trails.

I I have 3 people going so far a stockish YJ and a moderate XJ and myself. We're going to TSF and so far these are the trails we have planned.

Powerline
Firebreak 5
Easy 7up
Hogs back
Archers fire break
Run waterfall, rock garden, Vnotch (I mainly want to do these I highly doubt the others in my group will)
Then turn around run rocky up hill

Then probably head home

Anyone is welcome if you don't want to run the harder trails I am more than able and willing to give you directions around. Trying to still keep it kind of small.

Thanks!

If anyone at the last min wants to come just let me know I will check this in the morning before I leave.

We will be leaving Tigard by around 8:30 am and be at Rogers landing by probably 9:15-9:30 am.

We will be running CB channel 22 if anyone wants to come up later.

Happy wheeling everyone

I saw you guys when I was driving north on Beaver Dam road alongside firebreak 5, the 3 of you were on the next section of firebreak 5 - right before the rock garden. I was in a green sahara and there was a white xj with me. It was a nice cool day for wheeling. We hit rocky uphill, hogsback, airplane hill, firebreak 5 and lastly bates. What trails did your group do?

I thought that was you lol we ran all the trails listed above besides rocky up hill we kind of ran out of time the first two hours we were there was trying to find out why my buddy's XJ stopped running. Also by the time it was for rocky up hill I had ripped off half of my drivers rear fender flare I was ready to head home. I was the only one who ran All of firebreak 5 and the archers double blacks, but I had issues with waterfall today. I have been wanting to hit airplane hill for a while now but no one else wants to try it. Once my buddy who has a built XJ I'm sure ill try it soon.

Since I was taking pics, there are none of me but here's the XJ on the Airplane Hill entrance and exit filters :).

That trail looks like a lot of fun. How's the actual hill? Are the filters more difficult? I tried looking for videos but no luck finding a good one.

The hill - it's like can opener, a bit longer and there's a ledge/shelf in the middle that will eat 35's, winchable though. 37's+ and lockers are the ideal hardware to run. Locked 33's really don't have a chance, without substantial rock stacking and winching.

I enjoy running the filters though.

I had two near roll overs attempting airplane hill. Its one of only a couple trails I can't do.

Looks like I will be avoiding that hill! Lol filters look fun though.
