Time: Sun 23rd May. Be gassed up, breakfasted and ready to leave for the trails at 0845. Front tow and rear tow hooks are mandatory. Recovery equipment, CB, lunch and bug spray will also be useful.

Place: Patate Marco parking lot (7160 Rte 125, Chertsey, Quebec – good place for breakfast). You will see the sign – a big yellow M on a red background (similarity to the McDonald’s logo is completely coincidental!). There is also a gas station next door. Marco is on the main highway through Chertsey (Rte 125) on the right just past a large supermarket (Provigo?).

Directions from Montreal:
http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=d&sourc...27831&t=h&z=16

Trail Head: We should arrive at the trail head for around 0915. Air down / disconnect and driver’s meeting.

This is the list of folks going...

1. Trick Cyclist
2. Neoxxis
3. Norm
4. Wakeup!
5. BlackJKRubi
6. Octo
7. Jeepincanada
8. MTLWrangler (?)
9. -MAW- (?)

JS and Mel can't make it.

Chertsey Dusty Sunny Day

Very nice day, nice rescue and LOTS of dust!

Good day indeed! Spent all day cleaning the inside as well - never seen so much dust. Should plan another run soon. If it's nice weather, we should camp the night before and do a night run.

long drive back home but it was worth it. Thanks for the vids. We should def. try to do it again for a night run. I'll have my Jeep check tomorrow, looks like I might have bent something in the front end, time for upgrade again

I posted my pictures and videos at the following locations:

Pictures: http://gallery.me.com/octo/100016
Videos: http://youtube.com/octo23

I think I found a replacement tire for my blow-out, now I just need a new side Sahara step before my girl friend notices the damage to the existing one.

Cheers

Night run indeed. Maybe Hailstorm again? We should try that trail where we recovered the F-350 the next day.

Stay tuned!

Yeah good idea.
We can go explore anywhere... As long as we have the GPS to get back...
The pickup trail looked pretty hard in some spots...
Good potential in there...

JS has the polyperformance one. I believe he is very happy with.

Sorry to hear about the breakage. Where did you bend the tie rod? Did you have fun getting back to Ottawa?

All good thanks. I'll let you know if he's a better bricklayer than an "offroader".

There is a connector trail from the end of spring street (the one we did last year) and those trails. I have a cunning route planned. Might need some exploring!

I checked Poly but they only ship UPS which means high brokerage fees

Rock Krawler is second on my list but on their website I found this info:

''Recommended wheel is a 17" diameter with a maximum back space of 4.5".

I have 15'' wheel with 4.75 BS

the drive back was "interesting'', no chance of falling asleep, people probably thought I was drunk!!!

I know Rock Krawlers make good stuff!

For UPS, just make sure you go with "expedited"...
Often Air Mail costs a little more but all brokerage is pre-paid...
So it's either 20$ up front and you're done, OR pay x for shipping and add 50$ in brokerage and customs fees...


OR... Find a local shop that could make better stuff than most you can buy...
We have this tendency at buying "cheap" stuff off the Internet, but people right next door do this for a living and they make Canadian Built Quality!!!

I followed you back half way and other then once or twice, where I'm certain that you were trying to figure out your new wobble, you didn't look to be any worse then other Quebec drivers

at least in Quebec we don't need sign to tell us to keep right except to pass!! and stop signs are just a suggestion!!!

How far are you from the US? Have it shipped near the border (Freeport Forwarding for Montreal folks, for example) and drive down to pick it up. You declare it at the border and pay taxes. Easy peasy. :-)

I'm about 1.5 hours from Ogdensburg NY, I pick up parts over there often it's just that with the bent tie rod I couldn't wait 2 weeks to get the RK product. I guess I'll order one soon and have the new OEM one as a spare...
