Grande Prairie

Is there any good spots around GP, north of GP to go mudding or hit some sweet jumps. (no bush, I don't wanna scratch up my shizzat)

Nope. Not much around here where you can run a pretty truck. Maybe down by the river in the dunes.

Such is life. Just passing through.

Dunes are perfect...Raptor was built to run dunes, not mud.

Been meaning to hit the deserted beach before tourist season, but between the OPP frowning on shenanigans and getting it dirty, there just hasn't been the time, you know?

Oh, alright.... I'd rather keep it clean.

The sandy beaches near Tow Hill on Haida Gwaii would be perfect.

yea i heard about frame bending but i think that has a lot to do with people not knowing what speed to hit a jump at or not knowing the degree of a jump.

Everything has it's engineering limits.

I love how some guys beat the hell out of their equipment and then look all hurt and surprised when something breaks, like it was Ford's fault. lol

It's funnier hearing there rants and trying to claim warranty! As soon as I hit a jump I would expect that when I land nothing is covered.
