Weekend Adventure

Friday after classes me and a buddy took a short trip to harrisonburg VA to meet visit our friends at another college, fish and have some fun. I decided to take the taco up our land in west virginia. The once decent road to our hunting cabin is extremely steep. The loose clay and shale soil has eroded a huge amount in the 50 years it has served as a road leaving deep ruts in the already steep road. There are also extremely steep clearing for a gas pipeline. I was skeptical about my 4 banger making it up either, especially after it stalled out trying to make it up the first hill in 4WHI. I rolled down to the bottom and engaged LO and didnt have a single issue the whole day. I must say I have been EXTREMELY impressed with my 5 speed base model 4x4. First on the beach, no problems on sand with tires at 30 psi, now no problem on the mild offroading of our hunting land or putting 3 fresh trout in my freezer by towing the boat! Any buyers remorse I ever had about setting for the Taco I got for an awesome price has been demolished!

End of my Positive rant
