    O.k. So all you CK5 people that are coming to Dixie. Do yall want to camp in the same spot (except for BigJBear and Grim, they camp with their club) The club that Keith and I belong to are the "Renegades" and we are treated like such. LOL. We are outcasts and usually have a camping area to ourselves. Last year it worked out great as the CK5 crew that showed up had plenty of room.

    Next on the agenda is do we all want to run the same ride on Saturday morning. Last year we all did trail 9 and we all went on the earliest ride for trail 9. So sound off if your going and shoot out some ideas here.

    I'm up for 9 again. Grim & Yeild have winches now so we don't need to sneek them in. What ever we do we need to go earily to avoid traffic.

    Well, I think I'm out this year /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
    Coming to realization that I don't think I will be able to make it for many reasons. Main one is $$$ with the economy and all, it's really hurtin' business right now /forums/images/icons/frown.gif.
    I will try and see though. I REALLY want to go down there again, b/c I know, this time I will TAKE trail 9!

    I'm still working on the CTM's for the shafts /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I got a "Let me think about it". If I don't get those....ehhh I guess we test the limits of Warns alloy shaft warranty /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I have burned though all the money I can get awaywith for the next few weeks. Might also have Disc rears if I have the time to install /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    If my family is not going balistic tonight I might even get my winch Mounted LOL. Speaking of winches....Hows your free spool doing Dep? I have found that it may not be a bad Idea to pull the free spool end of the winch appart from time to time especially if you U-Boat the thing.
    Here is the big problem for Me and BigJ. Our club is supose to do the Kids games Saturday morning. Not sure how many of the club members are going to be needed to run them.

    Dep, I liked that spot we had last year. It was plenty big, and everybody over there was real cool. Plus, when I WIN that winch this year, I wont have very far to carry it!!!

    Trail 9 sounds good. But to be honest, I really doesnt matter to me. I would love to do guardrail, but.....the top side gets a little narrow I heard.

    Well Glen....

    I'll be a Tellico newbie so as long as you keep that roll of duct tape away from my a$$ I don't see why we wont be camping over there by you all, where ever the hell that is.
    I'm still trying to see whether or not the wife is coming with me or not. And whats the spill on trail 9 again?

    If I get all the parts installed on my truck I'll see you there. If not, I'll probably see you there anyway, but not in the Big Orange. I'm a newbie too when it comes to rocks, and 40's with a 10 bolt front doesn't sound so appealing to me, so even if I got it there, I doubt it would see any trails, much less #9.

    So right now it looks like trail 9 and the earliest run for that trail. Last two years its been 8:00 am and Gunner Byrd leading it.

    Grim, my freespool works no problems.

    Yep we camp in the camp ground. If the wife comes, were probably going to get a hotel, because of the shower and stuff. If its just me and my oldest boy, we will camp.

    Were going to have a ball.

Were going to have to go find his boss and threaten him with bodily harm to get Rob back to Atlanta. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Dixie is a blast. Expect body damage (scratches, dents ect) 0n any of the trails especially if it rains. You can never tell what will happen. There are mild trails, but they are no cake walk and there are always low hanging branches and stuff.
