So I am still going through the motions with posting on the forums :coffee:. I figured that a week of being lifted was long enough to wait to take it on a trail. Decided that i would go for the Tahuya ORV park in Washington. Me and a few Co-workers are gonna go play around and see what parts we can break.

It was a very last minute thing otherwise i would have posted way ahead of time. There will be a couple of cameras and GoPros going so I should have a good bit of stuff to show off. Plus I don't like being in the mall crawler section of the build thread :wallbash:. Nothing against it at all. Just from a personal stand point i see the build threads as goals.

Just got back from the trip. Here is a teaser pic for now. gotta wait for the other pics to be sent to me since I couldn't take the pics of myself :wallbash:. On a side note one the way back from the trip not only did I start getting a wobble in my passenger side wheel that sounded like it was rubbing something when i made a left turn. I saw a lifted LTZ Z71 Trailblazer in Silver! He rolled up next to me and gave me a huge thumbs up. Not gonna lie I was Pretty stoked to see another lifted TB.

BTW the H2 behind me is one of the guys who work for me. Surprisingly he was able to follow us most of the way. He had to take a few diff roads cause he was to wide but for the most part as long as he had a guild he made it look easy. :safari:

So, found out that these are the only pics that the trailblazer was in. Everyone was more focused on the H2 :facepalm:. Need to make sure that Ibring my Photographer ( the wife ) next time... After I replace my CV axle. :wallbash:

Only cause it was a miracle that it was actually there and attempting to get dirty. That's a rare sight.
