2010 Ohio Adventure

For those of you who dont know what this is. 5 days of ohio mayhem. Sort of like the Ultimate Adventure but we stick to Oh and you CAN trailer from place to place if you wish.

We started this years event Monday, this is our 6th solid year fo running this event.

This year we are running the Stillwell Stompers 4x4 club's private property near Killbuck

Gasline Motorsports in Lore City

Hieney Farms in Roseville

and Gardners Gulches in Norwich

(ill add some photos in this thread later. currently still uploading.. have over 300 photos for 2 days worth.



As for carnage ( as I recall it)
Ricky bobby ( blackish cherokee) bent a tie rod, we were able to fix it enough for him to keep going.
Vern flopped the jeep ( big green wrangler) he WAS passanger in, the only time he drove it.
I (orange bii)broke a lock out trying to spin around to winch it back over then I popped another lock out and broke the axle on the other side all in one giant leap over a rock a few hours later
BroncIII ( silver samurai) flopped, and lost a ujoint in the dshaft
riegel ( silver tacoma/truggy) broke his leaf hanger off frame
Tom ( blue FSJ) broke 2 axles and lost a ujoint cap in one
Billg ( black tj) lost a rear driveshaft u joint and burned up a toggle switch on his OBA.
Nick ( green buggy) took out a cluthc pressure plate)
Couple others had some minor mechanical issues aswell that I recall.


Look for a day 3 recap tommorrow night.

Yesterday we hit Gasline Motorsports NEAR cambrdige oh. we hit the trail at 10. by 11:30 we were changing an axle in a d35 with a locker that turned out to be a time consuming job. got hit with crazy rain wind and hail around 2pm, after standing around for 2hrs we called it a day around 4 loaded everything up, to head to the next location. So it was a really shrot day with little trail riding. Next location is 10minutes from my house so im here at home ready for tommorrow. Im sure being this early in the day the others will get a night run in and Ill be waiting around in the am for things to get fixed.



Carnage consisted of a d35 rear axle and a couple of big blue tarps that got taken out by 30mph winds.


Today we hit Heiney Farms. My wife is in Arkansas today so not many pictures, I dont have much time to get photos.

We did manage to get a yota up the UA Turtle Head trail, he is the first person other than the 5 from the UA to make it. And he is by far the smallest truck to ever make it.

Carnage that I recall:
Jeep J20 LF axle joint ( managed to save the shaft0
Jeep TJ d30 ring and pinion
Jeep XJ oil pan
Jeep YJ motormount.oil filter
Jeep TJ RF upper control arm mount tore off axle
Yota 4runner rear driveshaft
Yota pickup RF bogger ( on the ua turtle head trail, and he still made it!)
Ford Bronco II right inner tie rod end ( bent to heck) and RF warn lockout

The week is starting to take its toll on the jeeps, and even the yotas are startign to fail now. The ford has been breaking all week


Photos of the entire week here http://s239.photobucket.com/albums/f...o%20Adventure/ Been having troubles getting things uploaded the last 2 days so I'm still wrking on todays and yesterdays few photos/vids
