keeping this thread alive.. i was on vacation in northern michigan this past week and was able to get in some seat time and do some exploring. I didn't have a gps just my own sense of direction lol. Was able to get our 650 stuck not once, but twice, in the same mud hole lol. I drove through it about 5-6 times prior to getting stuck in it on back to back trips lol. This was the first & second time i have ever gotten stuck with this machine. Winch worked amazing, once i hooked it up to a proper tree lol.. First tree was too close and pulled up my front end, 2nd tree on the other side of the hole was dead and i pulled it down (not on me.. lol), and then the 3rd tree was 'just right'. My little girl (5 years old) is a quick learner. She worked the winch controls for me to pull the cable out, and even worked the controls for me to spool it back up properly.

she also instantly announced "WE GOT STUCK!!" as soon as i turned off the motor when we got back to base camp lol. When i get a chance i will upload some crappy cell phone videos i took since i left the gopro at home.

Weekend was eventful.. Announced to my family that we will be adding another minion to our flock this coming march and reached an agreement to sell our home all while in the sticks with no cell signal and only wifi at the park office lol

Went for a fast camel cruise in the X3 this weekend. Did the same course two weekends ago in Jeep's "Desert Rated" Wrangler truck, with it's internal bypass Fox shocks and hydraulic bump stops. The Jeep Mojave has nice suspension, but the X3 is way way way better. It took half an hour to get to the first stop point in the Jeep, and it took 5 minutes to cover the same part of the course in the X3. :)

just tell them you are making sure that the wildlife isn't caught in the fire and suffers an inhumane death
