Langlade County, Elton, WI

I left Oshkosh at 7:30 AM. My younger brother joined me on this trip. I meet Gary in Bonduel at 8:30.

The before pictures.

Being a new area, and quite muddy I didn't know what to expect. The first trail looked great, full of water and very difficult to navigate. This trial came to a quick end when my crappy small tires decided they had enough and left me stranded in a rut.

It was a whole different experience for me.  Not that I hadn't went down trail and roads before but that I didn't think this was off-roading.  I was wishing that I had better tires and a lift so I wouldn't have gotten stuck, and now all I'm doing is driving through the wood???  This stinks.

As we continued down the trail we did come across some beautiful campsite that overlooked the lakes up there.  Had to do a few hill climbs and decided to see if an Explorer can be a boat.

We got good video footage of the huge water puddles we hit.  The second puddle I thought I was going to be stuck in the middle for sure, but slowly my X decided to plunge on through.

I am completely set on replacing my tires.  I still haven't decided exactly what size I should go.  I found an online converter for Tire size and found that my current tires are 28.9 x 9.3.  As seen on the wish list I'm looking at the BF Goodrich All-terrains. 

After that we went over to the local Boy Scout camp to take some pictures for my brothers photography project.  We decided to plan another trip rather than risk rushing out to make another run.

We started heading back about 4:00
