.On October 18th and 19th, Clayton, Oklahoma was a home away from home for nearly 200 off-road enthusiasts. The event was the Southwest Four Wheel Drive Association's (SWFWDA) annual Fall Quarterly Meeting. The Fort Worth Dallas-Four Wheel Drive (FWD-FWD) club hosts the event and cuts the trails each year.

Getting Ready To Go

.Though there were 4x4s of all makes and sizes, the event was dominated by Jeeps. However, Toyotas, Scouts, Broncos, Land Rovers, Chevys, Suzukis, and others made their presence known.

.Upon arrival to the rodeo grounds on Friday night, every vehicle had to go through a tech inspection and was given a trail rating sticker according to their equipment. Most people felt this was good, as it kept over-confident people from being on trails where they didn't belong and holding up lines and breaking down. The drivers were then sent inside to get registered and choose their trails for Saturday morning.
