There is just some stuff that doesn't fit existing categories, and isn't worth making into it's own category. So here it is!
THE DISCLAIMER: With the exception of stock ponds, and the occasional necessity of turning around, I *ALWAYS* drive on established roads and trails. Doing otherwise is not only bad karma, but it leads to ill-will towards four-wheelers/four-wheeling and makes people want to close vehicles out of the beautiful environs that we all enjoy. Please be respectful of private property (don't trespass!) and public lands, as other people want to enjoy them too. Also leave gates as you find them (closed if closed, and open if open.) If a road has a big mud hole in the middle of it, do NOT go around it, as it only makes the road wider, eventually making the mud hole wider. This cycle of foolishness can get out of control. If you can't make it through the puddle, you shouldn't be there. Turn around and find someplace else to explore. TREAD LIGHTLY! For more information on responsible wheeling, go HERE or HERE Ziggy at dirtroad.com says it best, "Use your 4-wheel drive to enjoy the environment, don't use the environment to enjoy your 4-wheel drive!"
Ramping my Highrider - This is the first time I ramped my Highrider to try to figure out it's RTI score. I used what was available, in this case an 11 degree ramp. I'm not entirely sure I trust the numbers, but oh well. ADDED 2 April 2001
Three Rampling Z's - Getting a little fancier this time. Kyle, Frank and I got together at Four Wheelers Supply in Phoenix to test our Z's on their 23 degree ramp. ADDED 2 April 2001
If you're in the Tucson area (or anywhere in Arizona), drop me a line and we can go wheelin' sometime.
Speaking of which, if you own a Highrider/ZR2/BlaZeR2, or want to find out more about the best little 4X4's around, check out these great sites:
http://www.zr2.com and http://www.zr2hr.org
There is also a ZR2 discussion group, which is very fun for talking about our special trucks and in getting ideas, help, and useful information. I have learned a great deal from the list.
