They don't call it doggie style for nothing.

So what is the over/under on this post getting deleted? I couldn't help myself. :evil:
When you are stupid...you do dumb things because you don't know any better.
When you are a dumbass...you know better, but still do them anyway.
I have been accused of both. :evil:

Getting back on topic... ;)

I also loved Old Florida Road and can't wait to run it in the new truck. That should be a blast. 8)

Two of my other favorites are sadly no more... :cry:
They were Cherokee Ridge and Turtle trail at Paragon Adventure Park. Paragon was amazing and those trails were sooooo much fun. Cherokee Ridge snaked between the trees virtually straight down the fall line of a very steep, wooded hill. In an adventure series H3 in it was engine braking all the way down 8), but for non adventure H3's & H2's you had to stand on the brakes. :o

Blue Lakes area is cool. We camped at Lower Blue Lake before hitting the Deer Valley trail a while back. 8) We got a site right along the lake.

I like the Greasy Spoon Trail in Sedona AZ. It is a very fun trail to run.

My favorite is a little place we call "Quarter Mile" in Wharton State Forest, part of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. The trail getting back to Quarter Mile is fun in itself...but what makes this my favorite trail...it's 1/4 mile of mud, with nothing of any size to winch to. If it rains, it's all water with soft mud underneath, when it's dry, the mud becomes about three feet of quicksand...

It's challenging...mud and water (sorry, the only rocks int he pine barrens are those that got stuck in someone's shoes and fell off). I'd give it a 4.5 on a scale of 5...but some days it's a full out 5.

This trail is the reason why we buy gear oil by the 5 gallon bucket...

So far my favorite trail is "Red Lake, Lower 'Dusy' entry".
An entryway into the Dusy-Ershim trail in the Central Sierra's. After a 4mi. logging/trail road, the beaten path begins to disappear. An apparently mild trail begins to become very rocky and eventually (for a truck as wide as a HMMWV) becomes incredibly tight, sometimes with little more than .5" clearance between both sides. After what was apparently a "warm-up" for the tough spots, a steep rocky climb after West Lake turns into a 50 degree, 120yd. slope and descends into the valley where Red Lake lies. The real fun happens at this location on the way back. Running 10Lbs. in the tires, the DG on the up slope becomes a real challenge for even the best purpose built rigs. 4 tries, 2qts. of oil, and 1.5 hrs later we made it back to the top. The trail gets my attention because of the remote and beautiful terrain, the excellent fishing and camping at the end, the MAJOR potential for damage if you're not incredibly careful (in a truck with +88" track width), and the ABSOLUTE LACK OF TRAFFIC (no one to help if you can't make it yourself). The "Pucker Factor" added by the potential of having to hike out or shuttle people out on a 4hr. crawl (leaving your rig behind) really punctuates the intensity of the exit.
Only done it once. We'll see if its as fun this year. 8)
