    If anyone wants to make the trip down myself and 4 other rigs will be at Paragon on the 22nd of October. Looking for fullsize rigs to hit some of the more interesting trails. Tentative start time is 9am, we all know how that works.:D

    Please no booze, pets, kids in diapers or bad attitudes.
    I have nothing against any of those things. they just make for a long day on the trail.

    Please post up here if you are interested in going so that I can maintain a head count. I can be reached at 610-291-0113 anytime before 10pm.

    Not 100% yet but looking like we may have two trucks able to go.

    What's the "crew" looking like so far?
    Is everybody locked...blah, blah, blah?
    Minimum tire size?

    so far the smallest tire is a 35" on 1 ton axles. 2 guys running 38.5-39.5, myself and one other running 44's. A guy I have wheeled with before from Keystone Krawlers is bringing his Toyota on 37's.:rolleyes: Had to let him. He was a big help when I tore my steering box off the frame in the spring. Lots of lockers. I want to do an outside loop of the park and keep it interesting without being ridiculously challenging. Just once I would like to go to the park and not break something expensive. I have always gotten it on the trailer before dark.

    :waytogo: sounds good.

    What trails are you thinking about running?
    Last time there in early Sept. this year, we ran...
    * Pebbles and Bam Bam
    * Rattler and Rattlers Tail
    * Undertaker
    * Looked @ Death Valley :eek1: :bow:
    * Death Spike and alot of others I can't remember.

    Where are you guys camping?

    Play area to whompum. Bypass to turtle. down turtle trail to inner spare tire. rocky meadow to the logging road. woodpecker to muddy pipeline, un less everyone wants to do Voodoo. Valley road back.

    if there is any time we could hit the rattlers or sluice or something short. also as long as we are all under our own power and not in the process of making an extraction.

    I tried to keep the selection light so that everyone can have fun and make it home.

    By looking at the trail map all those trails except Voodoo are green and blue trails.
    I've never been on them, are they fun/challenging?

    whompum I have been on. thats were I ripped my steering box off. it has sections that are black. blues are fun/challenging. blacks are just challenging. reds are work. I will go back to reds when I go a whole day without messing something up.

    Everyone might show up and shoot down the current plan. I doubt it since myself and the toyota are the only ones that have been to the park before. Trying to ease the new guys into it. don't want to scare anyone away by making it look like the park is nothing but extreme trails.

    Sounds good.
    If I weren't already scheduled for a weekend wheeling trip to NY on the 15th, it'd be a different story.

    Any chance of doing a sat/sun run next time?
    All that way for only one day of wheeling is tough. :crazy:

    Post pics!

    My last trip.

    Only one week left to get your truck done and come have some fun in the Keystone state.

    Lets get some trail time before it snows.
