Post Turkey Ride

Black Friday presented an opportunity to get up at 4am, fight the shopping zombie hordes, and try to score some crap from the local malls. We here at IronJeep said nay, we will not conform. We went wheeling in the Jeep! Our first stop was Royal Blue for some mild rock crawling:

Next on our agenda was a little known area called Eagle Bluff overlooking the sprawling metropolis that isn't Lafollette:

For our grand finale we headed up to the upper end of Royal Blue to check out a trail at the Hatfield Knob elk viewing tower.  We rode down Overlook Trail which lived up to it's name:

And lastly here are a couple videos from the Royal Blue trail we started on:

The second one was taken by my co-pilot and step son Brandon who was in for the turkey day festivities.  Sorry it's sideways he's an IronJeep rookie:

A ride I did with the East TN 4wd Club

This was a great ride, with the ET4WD.ORG guys doing  the cascades at Windrock.

This was way out of my league. :)

We headed up to Windrock this weekend and had a blast Jeeping up and down the mountain.  There are tons of awesome trails to ride up there, we managed to hit 3 of them despite the rain.

Trail 13

The InJeep camera continues to perform way better than the driver.  We've had it set up for a few rides now and I have to say it's been flawless:

The camera operator leaves much to be desired as I left it on through lunch and filled a quarter of the SD card with me munching Fritos.  :)  This video ends abruptly due to the card filling up:

We found a few trails in the Petros area this weekend.  Nothing too exciting except some cool views and a back way into Windrock. :)

Oh and deer muzzleloader season started so it was way too crowded on the trails to do much exploring. :(  I can't wait til deer season ends to take the Jeep back up here and check this place out thoroughly.

I'm not sure what that white stuff's called, but it was everywhere up there.
