    Just go to Blazer Bash instead, it's much less chaotic and none of those pesky jeeps running around...

    EJS is the week leading up to and inlcuding Easter(april 16th 2006). I think EJS is a blast we went on Kane Creek with a bunch of Jeeps and by the end of the run people were talking about how awesome stock blazers were. Although neither of the blazers that looked stock were actually stock they both had lockers anyway at least on this trail it is not hard to show a jeep up

    I have gone to EJS the past 2 years and this year we ran Behind the Rocks (my first time, but I have done harder). I was able to walk up upchuck and going down white knuckle hill was cake for me. Only half the jeeps that tried upchuck made it and of them 2 put it on their side, I made it without so much of a chirp from the tires. I personally think that once you get to 35" tires or larger jeeps have a severe disadvantage to a fullsize thanks to wheelbase, stability, and ease of swapping in 1 tons (not to mention strength of the rest of the steering and drivetrain and V8 power). Again, Blazer Bash will be awesome and it is highly recommended, buy EJS is sweet as well and you can see tons of people do awesome stuff with some sweet buggies!

    Give me a call, we set up fullsize trailrides for EJS week that are always fun. We usually run Pritchett one day and some milder trails the other days.
    For maximum good time on the trails, plan on being there all week. If you just want to see the spectacle, show up for the weekend. The vendor show is thursday and Friday, that's always good to walk around too.
