Prentice Cooper State Forest
This past weekend Mike, myself, our son Will , Jenny and her children decided to go to Prentice Cooper State Forest to check out the Jeep trails. We had visited Prentice Cooper State Forest the day before and checked out some of the trails. We were in our Suburban at the time. Therefore we stayed on the main trail.
The next day we went in the Jeeps. We started out on Persimmon Trail and stayed on it until we came to a dead end. We turned around and tried another way, but we got confused as to where we were on the map. We turned around again and went back to the main trail.
We then found a trail that led to Lusk Point. At this point we were able to overlook the Tennessee River. It was a beautiful sight! We could see Hwy 27 where it goes by the rock quarry at the foot of Signal Mountain. It was here that we decided to eat our picnic lunch.
After lunch we found Haley Rd. This road was the most interesting. When we turned onto the road we found a sign that said only 4x4s were allowed on this trail. It started with a steep downhill leading all the way to a creek crossing. As we made our way down the trail we came to a hill climb. We kept driving until we found Hwy 27. We then turned around and went back to the hill climb.
There was a trail at the top that we took until we came to a couple of trucks. The drivers said there were a few trees down. We turned around and started to head back to Haley Rd. However, Jenny's Jeep started to act up. I don't think she the Jeep Princess) wanted to leave. Mike was able to keep her going as we coaxed her on, and we soon made it back to Haley Rd and Hwy 27 and home.

Scuffy to swap on to the Rally racer to make Scuffy II.
Because I cut one of my 35" tires on playing on Scuffy's last run, I am running 30" for now.
The flex is amazing and the tight turning radius is nice on the tight twisty trails around my farm.
The torque of the Titan Engines Stroker motor is awesome. Even with the race cam, the power comes on nice and smooth. There is a noticeable bump in power as the revs go up. It caught me off guard on one side hill climb and got me in a scary spot for a while.
