River Rover Off Road Park

Bought a Jeep because I always thought they had a good look and their reputation for off roading is spectacular. Yes, I know, I have a HMMWV, which can hold it’s own on any terrain but I wanted something I could drive comfortably in long distance.

I joined a local Jeep FaceBook group call East Atlanta Jeeper and 4×4 and joined them on a trip to River Rock Off Road Park.

I learned so much thanks to Mike Williams. I learned about disconnecting my sway bar, deflating my tires to 15 psi for better grip off roading, needing proper tools such as deflators, battery impact drivers with proper attachments, deflating devices, proper inflator, and a cb radio.

I began my journey with a simple run came back for lunch then did another where I was challenged but the 2008 JKU passed with flying colors.

DJI Spark Active Track with Red Gold Cart

After I did the video of me manually piloting the DJI Spark with the HMMWV I took it back out but this time I used the Active Track following my Red Golf Cart around the property.

It does not have Obstacle Avoidance but it does have sensors in the front that will tell it to stop. It’s up to you to course correct.

The drone sometimes would lose me in the trees and I would have to help it and it would “re connect”

HMMWV at the Ranch

Took the HMMWV to the ranch and took my DJI Spark to document my adventure.

Well… my dumb butt didn’t remember that this bad boy has Active Track. It will follow you but it does not have Object Avoidance. So make sure if you’re using your Active Track that there is nothing it can run into.

It does have front sensors that will make the Spark stop but you have to tell it to avoid and choose another path.

Anyway, here is me driving the HMMWV off road (slowly) and piloting the DJI Spark.

New Addition

2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited with 86,000 miles. Has all the mods:

  • Big tires with Fuel wheels
  • LED front and tail lights
  • LED Bar, Bumper, and Windshield Lights
  • Factory Nav
  • Black Interior
  • Winch
  • Hard top
  • Half doors
  • Superchips (but when I hooked it up it didn’t start, going to trouble shoot it later)

Pulled the trigger on this beauty and luckily it was locally owned. I have been doing research on what I will need to go off roading and some of the things I have seen that I will need are:

  • Tool kit
  • Large jack for convenience
  • Air pump
  • Deflator

Looking forward to summer so I can take the top off and getting to know Jeep heads.

Decided to take her to our family’s property offroading and controlled my drone to follow along.

Scooter Over Uber

I purchased this scooter Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter from Amazon to accompany me when I take my 1968 Camaro to the local car show, Caffeine and Octane the first Sunday of every month.

I use it to go to McDonalds or peruse around the event. Well, it’s come in very handy on several occasions.

Once to come back from dropping off a car at my Garage Storage 1.8 miles away, another when I purchased the 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited from a neighbor who was about 5 miles away and last, today, when my daughter, who was using my pick up truck, dropped it off at the mechanics shop 1.2 miles away then again using it to come home from dropping off the pick up truck at the storage garage.
