Came back from camping and hiking in the Sierras, 11,000 ft is no joke. Scared off some coyotes but rats turned out to be our bigger trouble getting in our engine bays and building nests overnight. They chewed through my light wiring and got some wire on my buddies 4runner causing it to have a cylinder 1 misfire and sending it into limp mode, limped it to Mammoth Lakes CA
Maybe the Coyotes aren't so bad up there - they'll keep the rats under control.
Plinking rats with a .22 is a good way of chewing through the night!

Since I got new wheels and tires I thought it was a good time to go to the only good place to offroad around here in Florida closer than 4 hours away and do some flexing! Its locally known as the compound.

But rocks are like compacted sand! Okay maybe not exactly.

After today, I love my FJ even more... On rocks it was superb! So sure footed!
I was a bit worried how it would cope being an MT, but zero dramas! It just took everything in its stride, although if I was doing rocks more often, I'd go for different tires... The Cooper AT3 isn't an ideal rock tire...
One track that I attempted had been washed out pretty badly so I had to abort. The washout was 1-1.5m deep and impossible to drive.

It was!
Keen to do more mountain trails and wadis now!
They're a good option for summer - winter isn't such good idea with the flash floods in the wadis and the torrents washing off the mountains... The state of that trail that was washed out was incredible - I'd hate to have been caught in that...

What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

Did Rattlesnake Canyon and Burns Canyon today by Big Bear. Didn't get any good pictures



This guy was staring me down



And I got the rare FJ wave from modded black FJ in Big Bear.
