Here's a few pix from a recent ride at Corbett in Palm Beach County. You can see the rest at:

Enjoy!

It's dry season down here in sunny south eastern Florida and the riding is fine wave

From what I've heard Corbett has a lot wet trails. This ride took place one day after a big storm. This might explain the difference in water.

There is a group of us thinking of organizing another ride there in two weeks.

Thanks!

I don't think the jeep with the chrome front was for sale. Recently he sold the tires off it to get into the 38"s that are on it as pictured. That might be what it was.

It was a great day and the ride was fantastic. Lots challenging spots throughout the ride with plently of wild life to take in. We had our stucks but everyone got home.

My mistake. I thought I saw that for sale on JU; the chrome grill, and the rack just caught my eyes. Anyways.. Last photo looks like it was taken by a professional. Good pics!!

I'm just trying to get as much practice as possible in photographing jeeps and off road events. I started this subject about 9 months ago. This trip I was playing around with panning and motion. I'll post future rides as I attend them if you like.

Thanks

Hey Stuck, any of the group driving totally stock jeeps? A couple of them looked like they may be. Was just wondering if they had any more problems than the rest.

By the way, great photos.

On that particular ride the water got deep enough that the stock (and near stock) group split off and took a trail that had less water (1.5 to 2 feet in places). As you can see from the pix, they still did encounter water and in some cases dangerously high but everyone made it off trails end safely. The key was the deeper crossings were attempted one jeep at a time so there was not a pile up of jeeps in the deep water.

The group of significantly lifted jeeps continue up the deepening trail. At one point some of the extremely lifted jeeps (+4 in suspension with +2 body lift jeeps on 35" or more tires crossed a long 3 to 4 foot deep hole. Some drivers reported the backends floating.

All jeeps that pressing through the really deep water reported water in transmissions and difs (aka chocolate milk shakes).
