I wanted to take the Envoy out for a test run since I lifted it a few weeks ago. Found a mostly Toyota offroad group through Facebook and we hit the trails this weekend. Mostly Class 2 formed trails and a couple 2.5/3 rated play areas. It was a fun day out with a cool group of people.

Busy gas station meet spot near the trail entrance.

First stop to regroup and mess around. Wasn't to sure what the Envoy could do so I mostly watched at this point.

Everyone waiting. Lead truck got stuck.

Second stop on the trail and play area.

My rear recovery setup. I need to work on something for the front.

After getting settled in with how the Envoy handles I decided to descend into a small valley. Some flex shots!

Our third stop at the top of a "hill." This is Florida so any elevation change is exciting, haha.

And a final panoramic shot with everyone before heading home.

Where in the WSF was this? I'm rather familiar with the Richloam WMA and Green Swamp WMA in WSF. I didn't realize there was another member so close to me!! Exciting!

Also, whats up with that sweet white pickup in the 7th picture rocking (what looks to be) directional street tires?

This was the Northern Croom area. Just north of the Croom ATV and dirtbike park. They said they go out once a month to different trail areas. I'll shoot you a pm next time I hear about a trip out.
