Women’s Wheeling Day 2017

Women’s Wheeling Day 2017

Women’s Wheeling Day (WWD) is an annual offroading event held at Rausch Creek Off Road Park. We are pretty frequent visitors to Rausch Creek so you might think we learned of the event during a visit but you’d be wrong. We were actually introduced to the event by Christie Vinson at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival earlier this year. Christie’s “day job” is the Marketing Manager at OK Auto, 4WD & Tire (OK4WD) but her passion for the industry extends far…

Overlanding The Allegheny National Forest

Overlanding The Allegheny National Forest

In spite of our best efforts, our winter projects rolled right up to the beginning of spring.  Normally this is okay, but the tail end of our winter was more spring-like than some of the first weekends of the actual spring. Due to the ugly weather (and some other things), we have had a heck of a time getting out to enjoy the fruit of those winter project efforts. Something that needed rectifying and pronto! So, we set our sights…

Shawnee State (Ohio) Forestry Roads

Shawnee State (Ohio) Forestry Roads

If you are looking for a little backcountry getaway, Ohio’s Shawnee State Forest may be just the right destination. Especially if you are looking for more of a drive than a hike. With the recent cold snap and projects on pause, this is just what we were looking for. The forest itself is nearly 64,000 acres and is nestled between the Scioto and Adams counties. Nicknamed “The Little Smokies of Ohio” there are some similarities, but I personally think this…

Nine overland trips every Jeeper should do!

Nine overland trips every Jeeper should do!

Mrs. SSS and I have another cross-country trip planned next year to see our son who is stationed in Washington. Our trek will take us through many places we still have on our bucket list, and as such, we are planning an overlanding adventure to make the most of the trip. (This is actually the whole reason we purchased Klondike.) A recent article from Sean Holman of Four Wheeler Magazine came in perfect time for us and our planning. I…

2016’s Top Off Road Trails & Parks in America?

2016’s Top Off Road Trails & Parks in America?

PartCatalog just released their 2016 “Top Off Road Trails” in America list (or at least in 38 states in America). Additionally, they announced the highest rated trails/parks based on all of the submissions they received. It’s important to note that this list is for all venues of off-roading. Why is this detail important? Well, some parks or trails are better for certain types of vehicles. For example, Windrock OHV Park in TN earned second place but is far from a…

Rausch Creek October 15th, 2016 “Fall Season Closer Run”

Rausch Creek October 15th, 2016 “Fall Season Closer Run”

Every year we tend to wrap up our heavy off-roading season in mid to late fall so that we have time to clean and protect our rigs before winter (and its salted roads). This year there were only three rigs that were able to make it, but the small group size helped us keep a fast paced day with lots of trail coverage. We began our day on CV Trail to Walk in the Park. Then, we took the hill…

Pic Share – (Sept 17th, 2016) Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway

Pic Share – (Sept 17th, 2016) Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway

Our day, which we knew would be long, started pretty early. We were up and ready by 5am. By 5:15 we had met up with our neighbor and her girls (Sheridan Girls) and were on the road. We started in some pretty heavy rain, but this soon ended as we made our way south. Before you knew it, there were some pretty “epic” (see what I did there Sheridan Girls ) views of the full moon through the receding clouds….

Windrock Offroad Park, Labor Day Weekend ’16

Windrock Offroad Park, Labor Day Weekend ’16

Alana and I had the opportunity to join a couple of friends at Windrock Offroad Park in Oliver Springs, Tennessee over the weekend. Our wheeling weekend started on Saturday, but our friends John Jay and Joe Miller started the previous evening. Sadly, Joe broke an axle shaft U-Joint and it ended his weekend early. 🙁 With others dropping out of the trip and Joe out, it was down to just John and us for Saturday. A Badge of Honor trail (16)…

Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway

Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway

We have had a bunch going on lately and I decided that, whether it was the most responsible thing to do or not, we needed a break from life. So, while Jay was in Milwaukee for work, I got Dirty all packed up and ready for a trip for some much needed Jeep time. The destination would be to do some exploring around the Daniel Boone National Forest. Most of which would be done by checking out the recently opened Daniel…

Stillwell Stompers 2016 June Jamboree (Video Share)

Stillwell Stompers 2016 June Jamboree (Video Share)

Well, here it is…. I hope you enjoy. I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of the music, but it was free and has no royalties so the video will not be restricted. It also worked well with the timing. I will reiterate that it is VERY tough to spot, wheel, and capture video. Especially when you are the only one interested in doing the camera work…. Since I really prefer stills over video I worked some in. Tell me…
