Ride Of The Month April 2015 Submission Thread

Ride of the month submission time!

I'm looking for alittle more than just the best picture for April ROTM! Let's get alittle deeper this month and give us some info too...
This month's theme is: Favorite trails....please post a pic, name of trail and what makes it your favorite.

(AS A SAMPLE) Here's a pic of my Favorite trail...

Name:  image.jpg

True Old Sluice,Rubicon Trail. It's the last sections, still hardcore enough to cause major breakage or body damage, and I love pushing the limits!

We are looking for the Best Pic of "Your Favorite trail" ..Post it up to enter! I'll close the submission thread near the end of the month and set up the voting. Sorry, but one entrant per person, please. If you post more than one picture, I'll randomly select one of them to run in the contest.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
We’re looking for the best member’s pictures for that month. The winning picture will have the place of honor on the JKOwners Facebook page. We don’t care what’s on the Jeep (or how much $ they’ve spent or sweat they’ve put into it).
The criteria will be simple. Each month we’ll have a theme unannounced until entry time. Entrants will post up their submitted picture for ROTM. We anticipate quite a few submissions each month. We’ll run an initial vote to narrow the field a bit kind of like a semifinals. Highest vote counts continue on to the finals.(IF NEEDED)Finals would consist of 5-10 entrants max on a vote and we’ll see which one wins (10 is option limit on poll so if the contestant numbers are still high we'll go with 10).


It would be helpful to the entrant by having a little caption of where the shot was taken. Another thing to consider would be to make it a higher quality picture (cell phone pics suck).

What are you voting on? The overall picture and how well it relates to the theme of the month, picture quality, uniqueness of the shot, how well the jeep is framed in the foreground or beauty of the background. Which of the pictures posted by the entrants just 'makes it for you' as the symbol of our group on the Facebook home page. There are a lot of factors but we wanted to allow you guys to determine the best picture of the month.

I really don't want to make a huge list of rules that sort this out, but as they are generated, I'll update this post with whatever rules need to be imposed.
Rules:
1. Picture must be of the entrant's jeep.
2. Picture must comply with the theme of the month. Those that don't comply will be disqualified.
3. Winners in the calendar year are disqualified from entering again in the same calendar year. We'd like to spread the wins out, which I'm sure you'll understand.
4. One submission post of one picture only per month please.

I'll play.

Trail name: Old Florida Road (OFR). Photo from the second ledge.

Not a hard trail, comprised of two key ledges, but otherwise a straightforward fun cruise. What makes it my favorite is the first time I ran this trail. Sorry for the kinda long story....

Prior to running OFR my jeep was bone stock, and I stuck to beaches and backcountry dirt roads. This was the first trail I ran when I finally started building my jeep. I brought my Dad with me for the run (who had never taken a vehicle off-road like this), and it was smack dab in the middle of a tropical depression. We were way out of our element. I barely knew my jeep, didn't know the trail at all, and had just met the guys we were running it with. We spent all day in the trail, working through lots of washouts and muddy rock, and an unbelievable amount of running water. One jeep nearly rolled when it slid off the trail, which was right around the time my Dad decided we were all crazy. I made it through without any real eventful issues, but scared out of my mind the entire ride through. I also learned more about my jeep that day than any other day wheeling, made myself some great friends that has grown into a tight group here in New England, and most importantly became hooked on the sport with a story my Dad and I still joke about today.

Great story!! This is exactly what I was thinking about, adds alittle more depth to the photos! Thanks...

Trail Name: Rausch Creek Off Road Park, Pennsylvania – Green Trails

Definitely not hardcore, not very steep or dangerous, nor a chance to get super flexi, but these green trails at Rausch Creek Off-road Park just outside Tremont, Pennsylvania are my favorite because they are where my love for off-roading blossomed, and my addiction to riding rocky trails began. The green trails are designed for the off-roading beginner, which is what I am. My first trail ride was an instructional class on these trails in my stock 2013 Sahara, and the emotions that day that coursed through my body were unbelievably amazing, from scared to death to super excited to the powerful feeling of accomplishment, it was a natural high I will never forget. Off roading is an addiction that keeps growing inside me, and I just can't get enough of the rocky ride, and I crave more and more each day. I ended up trading in my Sahara for my 2015 Rubicon just a year and a half later, and the ride became that much more incredibly awesome. I too like pushing to the limits, but my limits right now are in the infancy stages as I continue to get my fix of wheelin' amongst the "baby" rocks gaining more and more confidence each time. I will look at this picture many years from now and fondly remember those “baby” rocks I used to climb in my Jeep Rubicon.

Peacock Flats, Hawaii

Peacock Flats has a wonderful mix of easy to hard trails to please everyone from Subaru to buggy owners. The first time I ran this trail was in my old Toyota Pickup with some local friends. I just had to have more, so I ended up buying my Jeep. The Flats one entrance is way out on the least populated corner of the island and you must apply for a pass 10 days prior to get through the gate at the base of the mountain, which combine to make for a trail that does not get abused and eventually shut down like so many there. I have countless memories with good friends on those trails. The stars are truly breathtaking if you dare to stay on the mountain after dark and see if the legend of the night marchers is true...

Johnson Valley. Going down this part of the trail my friends all yell STOP. I thought I had broke something. I ask what's wrong. They reply "Your shit is SO flexed out right now. We need a picture" So this is what came of it. If you look close you can see the JKO sticker on the cowl.
