    If I get my jilopy of a jeep together by then I will go. Not to worry I have not turned to the darkside permanently, the jeep is just to get me by while I build some kind of blazer-demon thing. Gilmer isnt very fullsize friendly just FYI. I only took my burb down 4 of their like 30 trails, there's a few more I could have done but I dont think there's a full day's worth of fullsize wheelin there. But yes, I would be up for a get together.

    True. Well one of my friends in a jeep knocked most of the trees on the class 5 climbs out of the way so they should be ok.

    Keep us posted on the date. I should be able to go. I've been there a few times and it's always a blast. Full size rigs won't have a problem as long as they have a short wheelbase like a K5. Its not so much the width as it is trying to turn on the tight trails without hitting trees.
