My father and I tagged along for the Lonestar Early Bronco Club spring roundup down at K2. Weather was pretty cooperative and the only casualty in our group was a knuckle joint on Josh's Bronco.

There is a pool going to predict when (not if) my 76-year-old dad installs larger tires and real bumpers on his 2012 Rubi. It dragged belly on nearly everything... but wat a killer drivetrain!

The 32ish tires just ain't cutting it. We eyeballed some stuff that looked new but our group mainly stuck in the intermediates like Devil's Draw, Fenceline, Willie's Wonka, No Name. The bigger rigs played around a little to up the difficulty.

That 4 door is like wheeling a Tahoe... really long. Largely due to effective spotting, it did surprisingly well including a one-shot crawl up that hard left vertical about 100 yards in to Fenceline. Velcro.

We got a good size group going the last weekend of 2012. I think we will have 6 rigs representing Abilene. I am excited.
