    O.k, Folks that are going, what is a good run for us all to get on at the same time. I know that we wont know what is on which run till we sign up, but what would be a good trail for us to hit. 9, 11, Upper or Lower 2???

    Titianic, Grim, lets all make a decision and then when we get there make sure we sign up for the same run on Saturday.

    Heck as long as I get my gears and tires I'm game. I't try anything but Helicopter pad. I don't have enough seat cushion for that mess they call a trail. Ineed to get this 79 Qjet rebuilt also. Still have a stall issue when standing on the spare tire. About got me a week ago. Put this other crb on it and drive it up a tree and see if it stalls before then.
    Unless the Winch ferry makes a stop by my house I won't have one. The guided rides they sometimes require a winch. If were going out on our own on Friday that won't be and issue as long as you guys don't mind giving me a tug if the need arises.
    Hay my tire deal is a little shaky. You still got them 35's? If I can't get these 36's I may want them. I pay in CASH.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    Sorry dude, the tires were sold and shipped to TN last week, thats how I am paying for the Fuel Injection. Dude, you need to just go grap em before he can change his mind.

    Jim, I am game for 9 again, hmm, Grim has a point about the guided rides, might have to do something different, anybody got any suggestions.

    Keith, where in hell are ya?

    I would think 11 and 2 would be a little rough for most but 6,7, 8 &amp; 9 would be fun if we were one of the early trail rides to head out Sat. morning

    That would depend on what you consider easy, 4,and 6 are easy to most that have run them. 5 has SPOTS that are easy and SPOTS that will eat yer doors, rocker panels, TAIL LIGHTS. If it rains, all bets are OFF.

    Early Sat would be good. If we can't make that work what is better Fri or Sun?

    Dawson, 4,6 &amp; 8 are mild if its dry. If its wet and you are worried about trail damage you might want to ride along with someone.

Like, be there by early Sat. morning, then wheel with yall, and then drive back up to my old college and attend the renunion. I hope I'll be able to do that :) Anyhow, let me know. Take care.

    Well Friday is the Lower 2 demolition derby thing aka rock crawl. Titanic is a judge and I would like to watch that. Last year Ken and I came down upper 2 to get to it because it was packed in on the road. Comming down upper 2 is no problem. Just fall off the rock and if you want your left tail light it better be off the back of the truck [​IMG]. Comming Back out it is a different story. May require a winch for the first truck and then have to strap the rest.
    So you fools going to help me take off my roof? hahaha I think the doors are comming off also. My Bikini is not in any kind of shape to go over 45 mph and unless I can make a new one I'm comming up with the hard top on in case it rains.
    The more I think about it the more I'm going to try to get there Thursday around lunch or so. Lots happening Friday and I'll probably head home Sunday around noon. Yeah if we can get on a early ride on Saturday that would be nice but knowing how they plan the rides they try to stager them and route them so they don't run 2 groups head to head to avoid trying to get 40 trucks past each other. Would be a bad idea to try to run our own ride for that reason. Best to find a ride with the majority of the trails we want to run and get on for it.
