Just making sure I understand this system correctly.


Quote:YELLOW----------------------------basic trail marker
Is this stock friendly?

Quote:YELLOW bracketed w/GREEN-----center of trail fork
I have no idea what this means lol.

Quote:BLUE-------------------------------bypass for difficult obstacle
Does this mean this is a bypass to avoid the difficult obstacle or this is a bypass the leads toward the difficult obstacle?

Quote:BLUE bracketed w/ORANGE------nasty bypass-short loop w/challenging obstacles
Basically the same question as above. Is this to avoid the nasty stuff or does this take you off the easy stuff and into the nasty stuff?


As far as a unified marker system goes... I've never seen such a thing. Everyone has a different interpretation to what is what even if they do use the same system. You should never enter a trail assuming you can make it based off a marker system. Back in AZ there are many different rating systems to describe the same trails. Here is one of those systems. It's from a book titled, "Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails".

So YELLOW is just a trail marker, doesn't indicate difficulty just says your on the trail, some have no ruts or marking and it's easy to lose the trail.
       
The YELLOW bracketed w/GREEN is the center of a fork. Sometimes you come to a split in the trail and see a bunch of yellow dots and it doesn't quite make sense. Once you know that seeing a yellow dot with green above and below means "center" it clicks and you roll on.

A BLUE circle just means bypass. You pull up to a scary rock obstacle and think "awww shit, my rig's gonna die on these rocks" look for the calming blue circle for a way around that doesn't require a change of underwear!

The "NASTY BYPASS" is just that. Your cruising down a trail and thinking "this is okay but a little sleepy" then you see the blue dot with orange above and below. That lets you know that there is a little offshoot to get your blood up and then deposit you right back on the trail you've been travelling down. Once the trail system is complete and I have time to focus on these they may come to be known as a "made me poop loop"!

The offset we mounted a different set so I have room between the fenders. I need to make the wood pyramid to get over the fenders. That's awesome.

They worked pretty good. Didn't have enough scrap wood so I used some fire bricks to get the front over then pulled the bricks before strapping it down. I've been holding out to get a 14K trailer but I might go Monday and just buy a 10K w'82" between the fenders. Jay's (pictured) is 78" and my Jeep is 80". Forgot to mention, with all 15 Johnny Joints rebuilt (#15 is the track bar frame end), the shocks rebuilt, and all new heims she goes through the woods quiet as a church mouse pissing on cotton!

Might as well just name it that right now. #1 it's pretty funny and #2 it's pretty self explanatory. haha I said #2 when talking about the, "made e poop loop".

Yup, I'm a little childish lol.

RE: Sooo, what's a "nasty bypass"?
Forgot to give due credit for the "nasty bypass" idea. So I first had the idea when wheeling at Gary's. Everyone who's been there knows the little dugout tank trap by the side of the main road. I remember first seeing that and thinking "sweet, bonus obstacle"! Expand on that a little and now you've got the nasty bypass! Thanks Gary!

I'll be there. Knee is mostly recovered so I'm going out Monday to get a trailer. Set aside some money to rent an excavator again in the next two weeks. Will discuss dates for club ride at meeting, thinking early Oct. Very interested in a winter/beater rig too!

I will not pick an Aveo.

I bet it tossed the timing belt and that's why it died immediately. Or a Dodge dynasty but transmission problems on a Chrysler product really aren't that far fetched.

When I first read it, I was thinking this was an obstacle bypass, but still nasty. Then I saw this pic and thought "If that's the BYPASS, what is the thing it's bypassing?!" Tongue
