Talking Stock off roadin'

Just a usual day blazing some trails in the woods. This is one of my favorite spots to go. Not far off of the highway, or many other back roads that connect to the Lake Drive back into Coeur D Alene.

This is where I like to go, a better zoomed in shot of the roads in the next picture.


The satellite picture is kind of out-dated, but there is some empty paved culdesac's off of E SunnySide Road, those are the trails I take.


The entrance



The steepest part of this small first trail is about over.



mmm mud. these tracks were barely here when i first found them a few months ago


Here is a different trail I found further down SunnySide road. it winds up the mountain a good distance before leveling out to a rock quarry. This trail is more primitive than the last.







Overall a fun day with no problems. Got the spare on the front drivers side from the other have a slow leak and i've just been lazy to get it fixed :P

bah! that's nothing!!

i hit an old logging road-in an Escort(!)-during the Christmas break, while visiting my Grandmother in Parry Sound. hit some puddles that were covered by about 3" of ice, but not enough to keep the car up (say goodnight Mr. A/C rad ), and i did that long before cell phones were in wide use.........don't remember if i even had one @ that time!

ah, to be young & foolish again!

but, back to your post, looks like you had a good day. time to let your friends in on the action!

I always go alone (except the passengers in my truck lol). I just try and never attempt anything I think I might get stuck in, or break something trying. All my off-road adventures are mainly just slow easy cruising through the woods. For being my first vehicle ever owning and it being stock, over the past couple years my truck keeps amazing me at what it will go through, specially in the harsh winters here.

Seems to be a pretty common trend here in Coeur D Alene, Idaho. The majority of cars I see here are Subaru Outbacks and all sorts of Blazers. They out-number everything else by far! My next door neighbor has 3 of the Outback Subaru's lol. Looks like 1 for each past decade lol. I've seen about 5 different SUPER nice, lifted, pristine looking/sounding K5 Blazers around this town, and a lot that are just mediocre.

Looks like a fun little trail.

Actually it looks like a nice deer hunting road back to the stand.

Haha...I mentioned this in another post but I pretty much did this exact thing except it was a frozen pond back a buddy's lane. 4 guys in the truck doing donuts on the pond then CRACK and the truck was sitting in about 2-3 feet of water (luckily the pond wasn't full). I told them all to get out I rocked the truck in 4high (I think) and she made it out. But I was on the wrong side of the pond with no where to go! So I turned around and gunned it back through the pond now full of huge chunks of ice, and again she made it though, although the sounds of the ice chunks banging the under body was worrisome to say the least. After a quick check, the only damage was the front license plate and mount were bent and broken and half of the front plastic skidplate was missing! I got lucky with that one!

Thanks for the map, I think I need to go check out these trails! Maybe you could navigate and I can bring the tow ropes?
