What a Great Time in Disney Oklahoma this weekend. Great to finally meet ToddBluh & hit the trail with him,he arrived he unloaded his rig we aired his tires down to 8lbs, then we hit the trail. 1st place we went to was Entry Hill where we came across a layed over Can Am 4 seater so we stopped to make sure everyone was OK, they were wife,husband & child. We helped them get winches back onto all 4's minor cosmetic damage. Luckily a tree was in the way to stop them from rolling off of a 5' embankment or it could have been worse. It was there 1st time at Disney,they thanked us for stopping & helping. Then we headed on our way. ToddBluh's 1st challenge a rock & dirt step up & he rocked it. Then we went thru alot of trails & put his driving skills to the test. He rocked it throughout the day. We went back to camp for a bit then I took him out thru the river bed & to the back side of Viagra & Cealis then we took some trails around so he could see the front side of the rock face they climb. Later that day I found out someone rolled down Viagra & was life flighted out. Then I took ToddBluh back up the river bed then up through the woods where he followed me up to Pantie Hill & that put hus Tyrex4 thru the test & he spun & hopped all around but finally made it, I think he was having second thoughts of following me up the trail. I & a few others were yelling put it in diff lock but I think over the engine noise & his Bluetooth speakers he couldn't hear us. He finally climbed his way to the top & he was smiling ear to ear. By then it was getting late but we did meet slot of great people & our Tyrex's got attention from others. What a great time & great fun I'm glad we can enjoy having fun with friends & we have alot of Awesome aces & parks to ride in here in the USA as well as all the places that are close to us in The Midwest in our area. Now it's time yo unload & clean my rig. Unlike Toddbluh's rig his tires don't stick out like mine do,do you would have never known he followed me thru the same trails. Lol

Sounds like a good time. I need to make it to Disney to ride one of these days.
Yes you do & let myself & Toddbluh know when you do. My work schedule lets me off every 3 weeks for 5 days so if you decide to go let me know & I will see when I'm off & maybe we can coordinate it, that goes for anyone on the Forum. I'll even try myself to go other places if I can on my days off & I can have time to plan. Video coming soon as well b4 my go pro battery decided to not hold a charge the rest of the weekend.馃ズ

Thanks Superr Atv. You do realize that about 3 weeks ago they had there 1st Sanctioned race there I think it was called the Fall Fallout,legends of the fall but don't quote me on that. It was a 5 mile race thru parts of Disney & it destroyed some vehicles I watched it while I was at Work Mad Ram streamed it live. Von Gitten Jr was there & other big names he barley finished the race in his Funhaver Bronco. Alot of the racers didn't know what they were getting into since they had never been there. I'll see if I can post a link for you. You can check out more from Disney but here is one link.

Well I guess it won't let me share the Video. But after that race weekend Disney will be getting more people to come ride ,& the race is going to be here every year now from what I've been told.

Nice video, hard to tell or see where the trail was at times going through the treed areas. Likely just the camera details. I see you're towing backward. Thats a ton of wind drag if you on the highway any length of time or speed. Aerodynamic are going forward.

Like Lifted said, let us know when you can go and we'll meet you there, I can't wait to go back. Lifted is a great Tour guide. I wanna be like him when I grow up :)
CCC... Lifted has a reason for towing it backwards, I'll let him tell you why he does ( I don't remember the reason he told me )
After a few trips I might be ready to make those night trail rides too, & hopefully it won't be 28 degrees when i do.

CCC I was the 1st one on those trails on Friday so it was all leave coverd at that time by Sunday the trails were fine. The reason I tow backwards for 1 is I've had more than one buddy bust a windshield from towing fwd,so they all told me to tow backward and the other reason is if you have a Super Atv back glass assembly they suggest you remove it when towing as the only thing that holds it to the cage is 4 velcro straps & 2 grommets so rather than remove it I tow it backwards I get wind drag yes due to its height but I still get 13-15 mpg with my diesel no different than pulling a toy hauler that my Tyrex4 won't fit in. Lol

ToddBluh The Go Pro Max has awesome stabilization I can also set the Horizon on it that will show the angles of the trail more. I'm still experimenting with my camera. I just ordered to more batteries so I won't have an issue with a dead camera as I would have gotten some really kick ace video Saturday & Saturday Night. I put the Tyrex through some Shizzle Saturday night & climbed some nice rock walls also. So yes the camera makes it look way smother than it really is as well as making the trail not look as steep either.
ToddBluh I'm going to make you Tour guide next time we go. Lol

If I'm the tour guide, you better bring your camping gear and enough food & cigars for 3 days. I'll get us lost.
My map app on tablet was no help at all. I'll need to find a better app.

I鈥檝e used this app for the last year or so. Hiking Trail Maps, Ski Touring, 4x4 Offroad App | Gaia GPS
It worked great for me offline. Can do lots with it. Google search for a promo code and you can get the fancy paid subscription(which isn鈥檛 necessary) for free for a few months.

Ok,well noted plus enough water & alcohol as well as fuel. Lol
Yeah I'm glad I've got a phone I'll just call my buddies to come get me. Lol
Maybe come to Disney more do I can get you more familiar with the trails I think that's a better option.

Thanks Andy I will look into that!
My 1st time at Disney was in my Tacoma back in March and I saw a new jeep cherokee get stuck in a "pothole" on that bumpy shelf rock, It was filled with water and deeper than you would think because it was a small pothole. I heard metal hit the ground when the jeep wheel went in and then after a few attempts to get out, he put it in 4wd & got out. I can't believe how well the gopro stabilizer works after being there and knowing how rough it is. My time in the tacoma was short, I couldn't find 1 trail I thought it could make and I have a 3 1/2" lift with high approach/descend offroad bumpers and 31's tires on it. even with a winch, I was afraid to try the trails. then I saw all the side by sides going everywhere, so thats when I started looking for one
So glad I got the Teryx, It does better than I could have imagined at climbing.

That does look deceivingly smooth, like you could take a minivan through there 馃槀
Yeah its definitely not Smooth enough for Mom & her minivan full of the soccer team & soccer balls. I tend to take my time unless it's a road I have been on & I know I can throw down. Lol
I did take it easy on ToddBluh I didn't want him to get his NewTyrex4 Le Dirty.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Here is another Video from Friday at Disney I just uploaded. The trails were still leaf covered at the time but by evening & Saturday morning they were well ridden on & easy to see. Still very beautiful with the leaves changing IMO.
