Those low water bridges on that route should be fine, they will have some water but shouldn’t be deep at all

Thanks for the info!

The water level seems to be dropping fast.

We had the largest turn out ever during yesterday's meeting. We had least 22 rigs go on the trail ride compared to past meets where the number has been 9.

Another good turnout at Rigs & Coffee. We counted 19 rigs on the trail ride. The trail was south of Lake Winona and a little more technical than past trails.

The trail was a good mix of mud, creek crossings, hills, and wide open spaces. We had a few ruts that could cause a rig to kick up a wheel. I starting to appreciate having some extended droop in the front and rear to keep the wheels on the ground when crossing the rutted out parts. Approach angle was good for crossing the deeper creek beds. No rubbing or dragging. No compaints.

This was a fun trail ride. Lots of great folks and a scenic trail. I was lucky enough to spend the day with my son in his 4-runner. I had not been on this trail before but looking forward to going back. It was a great way to kick off a Fathers Day weekend. Looking forward to next month.

We moved this last meeting to the 4th Saturday (23rd) since Rendezvous in the Ozarks was this weekend.

Pictures from yesterday's Little Rock Rigs and Coffee meeting. We collected 61 toys for the local Toys for Tots Drive from 10 AM till NOON. Then at 1:00 PM we met at the Paron Community Center for our monthly trail ride in the Ouachita National Forest. The cruisers were out yesterday.

Little Rock Rigs and Coffee and the monthly Ouachita trail ride is an open invitation event. Just show up and have fun with us on the pavement or in the Ouachita national forest.

GMRS communication are provided by Midland for anyone who needs to use a radio.

If you need Air down and up assistance we have MORR Flate inflation systems and pumps.

Another successful Little Rock Rigs and Coffee meeting on the books. We handed out the new Toyota Trucks of Arkansas club stickers. It was good to see good representation from the 80 series owners today. Members are looking forward to the July 23rd Toyota Trucks of Arkansas meeting in Burns Park from 10 AM to NOON.

The next Little Rock Rigs and Coffee meeting will be July 16th at Guillermo's Coffee on Rodney Parham Rd.
