Well.......let's see. I've heard about this road for a while. Figured with the Jeep down for the count I'd try to take my car up it sunday Aug 31th...(wish I had my camera with me mind you) got up to about the 13K mark found a fellow FIBCer aka " . " with a blown tire...he said there's more people up the road so I go tearing up the road a lot further up to find some help, couldn't find anyone (car's not so good on trails) so I go back down and he's made it about 38 or so (I only made to about 54ish cause the road got nasty for a FWD car.
He had factor with him by this time so we all hang out while factor goes n finds the rest of the group and locates a spare tire so we all head down to this trail and stupid me, I head down it in my Buick....FUN made it a fair bit in until we hit some mud. And well I wanted to meet the rest of the group....So factor and I park our 2WD vehicles and he rides his quad on down and I hitched a ride in a right hand drive Toyota driven by a really nice guy named Danny. met the rest of the people down on the beach.
All in all, nice day even though I didn't know you guys were up there. Thanks for the hospitality even though I was ill prepared for a night out there (didn't plan on getting to the beach in the first place but damn I"m glad I made it down somehow) The car has a little carnage on it....not bad but she held up on that trail in as far as she could go before the mud got her stucked up.
Thanks to all I met up there it was a blast. Can't wait to get a running motor in my Jeep and make it down to those kinds of spots without taking out my front licence plate !
I"m sorry if I cant mention everyone's name but it's all kind of a blur, I don't get out often to places like that (busted Jeep and all) Was nice meeting everyone and enjoying the nice night it was out there.
And the carnage list, both my licence plates are bent up, the front the worst got a new hole in my exhaust somewhere but that Buick's one tough bitch !
Here's the pics...a look underneath revealed the front subframe got tweaked a bit too....ah all in good fun ! Would that qualify as Tuna carnage ?
