There is a new offroad park in the area, so we decided to head on out and see what it is all about. It is called Barlett's ORV Park and it is located just outside of Liberty, SC. It is situated on several hundred acres and has lots of long, twisty trails and some good obstacles. We had a couple of new rigs join the group (Cody, Devin and Carrie) as well as some of the regular club members. We all had a good time and look forward to getting lost at Barlett's again and finding a few more trails.
We had a little bit of carnage on this trip. Daniel spit out a front axle u-joint on the first big obstacle of the day so he spent the rest of the day three-wheeling. On the same ledge, I managed to not only undo the gas cap but did a little plowing of red clay with the filler neck. We cleaned out the filler neck but apparently there was a lot more down in the tank. This led to an impromptu stop on the side of the road on the way home when I lost power. A quick filter change and I was back on the road again. I am sure everyone has a few more scratches and a little mud cleaning to do, but I am ready for more Barlett's.
I slacked off on this trip and didn't take too many pictures but here they are: Photo Gallery.
Due to the reorganization of my site, many old links are no longer working. Here are links to picture galleries from offroad trips from the past in their new location.

is better than working, but it ain't real great either. Especially, if your day (in my case) ends after only a couple minutes of wheeling. After my generator died and the mog was drug back up to the parking lot, the other three rigs in our group headed back out to find more mechanical mayhem. While I waited for my
tow rig and trailer to arrive, Bach managed to suffer a catastrophic failure in his PSC steering pump, Josh burned up the alternator-to-battery cable while winching Bach and just to join in the fun, Chris' fuel pump gave up the ghost. We were 0 for 4 that day! I managed to take a few pictures before my day was shot.
