Chicago South Suburbs

Took the XK on some old access roads around Burr Ridge, did pretty well, no problems. Mud Terrains helped a lot.

here's a link to some video ---->

Looks like a good place to get some "Arizona pinstriping".

I thought it looked familiar and everytime I pass over the 294 I look down and always wonder how I can get there lol.

We used to access the south side of the canal over in willow springs, then north side I entered from northeast of 55. Think alot of those trails are Water reclamation property if I remember now.

I've back in those spots a few times. One bit of advise is watch out with that water and a stock intake. You will suck up some water.
