    I'll be going to school next year up north so my wheeling will be a lot of muddy forests. Down here everything is hardpack desert.

    Now i've wheeled the forests before but i don't have that natural instinct when i'm in the desert.

    I was wondering if anyone has any tips to get adjusted faster or if it's just a matter of learn by doing.

    you'll be an NAU Lumberjack.

    dude, I'd say stick with what you have and get out there and learn it.

    save the money for the tires for money for beer man.

    plus there are all those lonely girls up there in the forrest...

    a lot of the new computer designed mud terrains are actually really quiet for how aggressive they are.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    The forests of Flagstaff won't treat you too bad, even if it's raining. :)



    It's a nice place to get the hang of it, especially in a PreRunner.

    Yeah, I was gonna say when I think of Flagstaff I don't think really nasty stuff -- not like back home or up in the PNW.
