Canadian River

A brief, but much-needed outing

Saturday found us at the Canadian River, where a number of friends were spending the weekend camping and wheeling. It was great to see everyone, and spend just a little time playing in the hills overlooking the Canadian River.

Watch for a video synopsis, coming soon, and head over to our YouTube channel (SmokeyTheJeep) to catch a couple of highlights from the trip.

We went out tonight to check the aim on my new Rigid D2s. I’d already adjusted them down, thinking they were too high. I guess I should have let them be!

A brief, but fulfilling, outing

My family is in town visiting this week, so we ventured to our local off-road playground today so they could, hopefully, understand a little better what this “Jeep thing” is all about. We’d barely launched into the sand along the Canadian River, when we came upon an early ’90s Dodge Ram, complete with low-profile tires on large-diameter wheels, buried in the sand. 

I hopped out and offered my tow strap, then pulled them out and went on our way. On the return trip, we came upon the same truck again stuck in the sand. After a quick pull, I encouraged the driver to feather his throttle and avoid the deep sand. Then, we went on our way. 

We didn’t stay long, but it’s always nice to feel like you’ve made even a minor difference to brighten someone’s day. I guess my folks got to see what Jeeping is all about, after all.
