    Interesting, I scanned my maps for a nearby bridge but must have missed it. Good to know! Glad you enjoyed it

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    My last day on the OAT continued much like the last with the typical mostly flat with deep creeks terrain and mixes of cleared fields and thick brush. Small towns and old bridges remained...as did the continued burpees. Unfortunately, Fort Washita was closed but just past it the route turns...

    The final leg of the trip! I picked up again in Hugo with the goal of making it around to Elgin in another 2 day stint. The above photo is just outside of Soper where I stopped and used one of 2 credit card machines in the entire town to grab some snacks at THE gas station. Finding dirt, I moved...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Day 2's focus was to put some miles behind me. I took the highways to the gas and food point near 15S 034596 382028. Quick aside: I'd heard that one's vision changes as we age. What I didn't know is that apparently I'd be able to see things that are invisible to others! This stretch...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Well I'm off on another twoish day jaunt on the OAT. Goals this time were to find a bit of rugged terrain to run 4 low, the locker, etc through it's paces and possibly get some night driving in to test the need for additional lighting in the future. This time I started by taking highways to...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    I was excited to see water crossing number 3 because it was marked on the map as difficult and I enjoy a good challenge. At this point I was fairly confident in the truck and felt like I could handle it being the route was put together by motercycle riders. However, that was not the case. The...

    Day 2 was to be the water crossing day. There are 3 water crossings on the route and I was set to do all three today. I took HWY 44 from Elk City to Sayre and rejoined the route there. Above is the first crossing with all of about 3 inches of slow moving water over nicely packed sand. The...

    The remaining driving for this day was fast, mostly straight and filled with wide open skies. Oh and windmills too. I wish I could have gotten closer to get a better photo of the sheer size of these things but alas this is the best I could get. I found many times that I'd reach speeds of upwards...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Not long after lunch I found my first dirt road of the trip and shortly after I made it to to the salt plain! gucci pic just because. The salt is actually just a very thin crust - about 1/4 of an inch thick in the places I was. Note, for those wanting to drive out on the plain, it's closed in...

    Allrighty it's time for another installment of the OAT! I had two days to burn on my own since the wife was out of town so naturally it was time for another trip. As an aside, I'm actually really enjoying travelling solo. I've only done so a few times but it turned out to be really fun. Anyways...

    2017 4Runner Pro Build

    Ran a section of the OAT to test out the truck and in short it's awesome! Also, not sure how I missed it before but the truck has an ARB diff breather mounted! Sweet, another mod I don't have to do lol.

    Allrighty it's time for another segment of "how long is it going to take this guy to complete the OAT?" This time I went over the segment from Salina to Sallisaw for a second time. The main purpose today was just to get the new 4runner on some dirt, get it in 4wd and play with some of the...

    2017 4Runner Pro Build

    Good to know, thanks - I've enjoyed reading about your build and thought processes. I've definitely come to the conclusion that I don't like the functionality of the stock tube steps - they look cool but stick too far out so they will ultimately be replaced.
