Rennie Trail, Manitoba, Canada

Recommended Posts

let me introduce to one of the best trails around here. Rennie trail. it is starting to get famous. I hear some people that have been in the tough truck challenge maybe coming to canada to check it out.

 

here are some pics.

lets start off with 2 jeeps getting stuck. these guys were just turning around as they could not climb some rocks so wanted to take a bypass. looked like solid ground but turned out to a very deep bog.

up the rocky face and then blue jeep broke. this is why with a D35 you need spare axles.

It looks like too much wheel speed causing a hopping and then, snap! I have seen this happen many times. George:cool:

It was unseasonably cold that day. we are usually about 10celcius or 50f. but it dipped down to about 39.2 suddenly and with the lakes around and wind it felt colder. didnt last long and it warmed up again.

 

That looks like a great trip! How long was it?

I left home at 7:30 in the morning. we hit the trail about 9:30 (travel, gas up, air down) I left the trail at 17:30. was back in the city for 19:00.

Yeah when it happened I said to my friend as we watched "I think he is going to break something." Rob, my friend, said "shut up, dont say that, then he will". I laughed then we saw his wheel width get wider and wider. it was a good laugh. we could tell from the break that this was going on for a long time. each time he went out it had to have broken more and more.

Even getting the jeep apart and figuring out what we were going to do was fine. still had fun even with a break. its an adventure. no problem
