    I'd join you...well, if it were in Wisconsin (the pipeline is good), and during my winter break. Yeah, that's right...you southern boys need to have some fun in the snow - adds to the challenge.

    Snow? What's that? Oh yah its that white stuff I see in pictures all the time. I've only seen snow once in my life and I was on a mountain top in New Mexico in July /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. If it gets below 50 here I just stay inside

    You guys are all welcome to come down to any of our So Cal Big Dawg runs, they go about every month. Check us out at www.socalbigdawgs.com

    I don't see any long trips in my future right now. Except maybe the Rubicon or Moab.

    If anything, I'd say a Moab run or some Colorado runs, just cause it seems more equal distance (except Wisconsin) to everyone. Moab is a 2 day drive for me, plus, I've never been there.

    I'm game for Moab or Rubicon. I have yet to drive both but I've been planning to go Moab this coming year. Rubicon just looks like it would be fun to show all those jeepers what real 4x4s can do! Plus you might just find snow. Get enough subs on the rubicon and you might even get one of the mags to come and cover it. Just a thought /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Some of our guys tried the Rubicon with the NoCal guys this year. It wasn't pretty. Lots of broken parts and dents. I'm trying to set mine up for the next trip up there probably next summer.

    The main reasons I say Moab is 'cause:
    1) I'm planning on going this summer anyway
    2) The trails vary so much, any Burb, especially some not as hardcore, can actually do some of the trails
    I have open front and rear, but I hope to put a locker in the back before the summer and upgrade to stronger axle shafts, but my front will still be the stock 30 spline stuff and open. I know for a fact, I could never make it through the Rubicon.
    Colorado, around Ouray, wouldn't be so bad because I think everyone here can do those trails, even stockers. It'd be open to more people.
    I don't know, just my thoughts...

    Of this places I have seen nominated, Moab has my vote. I went there this past August for the Blazer Bash, and I managed to keep up with the moderate group with no worries. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Woah! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif That's a good idea!! He's experienced with the area, so he'd know where to go. Id have no clue what I'm doing! A lot of the trails also have bypass routes, so if someone doesn't want to break anything, they can take that route. (I would) One good question...what month do you guys think we should go??? Maybe we should call Peterson's and let them know what we're up to...
