    Default Where To go in Colorado?

    Hi, New to Ft. Carson area. Last couple weekends did get out with a few guys who know the area. Had a great time didn't break anything on the boulders. Anyone know a good trail to go on this weekend Apr 16, 17 near colorado springs or even Denver? Thanks.

    There's a chapter run to Old Chinamen's Gulch near Buena Vista on 23 April.

    Default A Jeep can Wheelie

    Well, went out with a couple friends last weekend outside Colorado Springs. I found out a jeep can do a wheelie going up hill on snow covered trails. The looks on my buddies faces was priceless. They said my front wheels where off the ground at least a foot. FUN FUN. Now shopping for new upper control arms, time to upgrade I bent mine.
    Hope to meet some of you on the trails.

    Are you looking for stock/OEM arms or aftermarket arms?

    A wheelie on snow? Cool!!

    One thing I like about my CJ (see avatar) leaf springs! Wheelies with no bent parts!

    Trail Damage has lots of trail info, and it states when the trail was last run, so you know what condition it was in at that time.

    Got the link in my sigline, click it, and click the 'Home' link for trails.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
