Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Jeez, I just wrote a long post describing the conditions and it disappeared when I tried to submit it

I shouldn't say that my Jeep is setup just for Alaskan wheeling, but it is taylored more to it than let's say rock crawling. Alaska trails are usually muddy and fairly narrow, traction is often hard to find. I've got a few dents from sliding into trees.

The challenge on most trails is not so much making it to "trail's end" but making it there without breaking parts, so people are normally more concervative with the skinny pedal. You break something 75 miles from no where and it starts to suck. Most trips people are packing just about their garage into the back of the rig, 10-15 gals of gas, food for several days, camping gear, guns (bear protection), cold weather gear in the winter, etc.

There's alot of water crossings, some deep/swift enough to carry vehicles downstream... We had a guy loose his Jeep a few years back when the water took it. Here's an F-250 on 38s from a trip I did in Fairbanks:

Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Name's Eric. I grew up in Tri-Cities Wa, but am a transplanted Alaskan and have been living in Kodiak for a few years now. I ran across this site when Nate posted the link on the Alaskan4x4.net. I enjoyed seeing the pics of desert wheeling. I miss it, but not quite enough to leave Paradise to come home just yet. There's some interest up here in getting together an event similar to ya'll's "TTC", and I was hoping to get some insight into the "What, How, & Where" from some of you. Here's a couple of pics of my Chevy CJ7, aka-"Cheep".




And here's the latest version....

Cool Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Hi everybody! My name is Ron and my wife is Sandy. We have 2 kids, James and Amanda, but only Amanda is still at home. I am a new member of WWOR and I am in Mountain Home. I am new to off roading, only been out on 2 trail rides and a couple of trips up Featherville way on the dirt roads and I am already hooked. I come back from each trip already thinking about the next one. I am still trying to talk my wife into going out sometime, but for now it's just me. Here are a couple of pics of my stock 2001 Ford Ranger. I added Rancho RSX shocks and BFG All-Terrains (stock size) tires so I can be taken somewhat seriously (I hope :) ) Future plans are for 3-4" lift, tires as big as I can fit, and some sheetmetal protection. See ya on the trails.

Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Hey guys, names Andreas Ponti. Some of you guys may know me from before. I used to live in Nampa with wildgoose. Got stuck with a Bronco II so now I'm on my second one. It currently sits on 35" Wrangler MT/R's, D35, Ford 8.8, 5.13's and ARB's F/R. Also got a 4.0 instead of the 2.9. Currently working on a doubler. It's also my daily driver so I do need to be a little nice to it. I currently live in Bozeman, MT for school, but plan on visiting every now and then .

Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Hey, do you work at bldg 1224 on base? I think I've seen that rig in the parking lot there. You should come to a Wild West meeting. They are having one this tuesday at 7:00. I'm pretty sure they have them at Carlos, which is right across the street from albertsons.

Re: Stop Here and Introduce Yourself!

Hi,

Does nobody here drive the greatest offroader - the Land Rover Defender 110!?!

If you'd like to learn something about offroading in Poland have a look at our website:
