My dad’s birthday and fathers day are always really close together so this year we took him on a trip to celebrate. We went to Superlift off road park in Hot Springs Arkansas this year and had a great time. The park is good sized with lots of trails that are very well marked. There is a wide variety of trails ranging from easy to hard.
They are rated from 1 (easy) to 5 (super hard). We started out on the 2′s, then the 3′s but found out quickly that the 4′s were best suited to dad’s JK rubicon on 35′s. For our last trail we attempted one of the easier 5 rated obstacles and were looking good but after a hard bounce there was a strong gas smell that persisted for the next 10 or 15 mins and we took that as a sign to back off of the obstacle.
We had a great time but by now it was 101 degrees and we were hot as hell so at about 3:00 we went in town and rented a Ski Barge. It was brand new, we were the first ones to take it out. It had a 150 HP Honda VTEC engine and moved along pretty good.
We had a blast! Michael, Chris, Dad, and I hadn’t been on the water together for over 18 years. It was just like old times…
