    O.K. guys it's just been TOO long since we've been out so let's plan a run alright?[​IMG]

    So how does doing the Miller Jeep Trail which is in the Hungry Valley/ Frasier Mountain area sound?(Dec. 2nd) It's one big loop that starts at the Hwy 15 and ends at the Hwy 15. According to the map it's about a 30 mile loop which is partially pavement and has some difficult turn off's that are optional.(Dec. 2nd) We start at Frasier Park then go up to Alamo Mountain and then it drops down into the Hungry Valley area. If it's a quick trail then we can always play around at the o-course in Hungry Valley.(Dec. 2nd) Plus Hungry Valley offers lots of short trails too. Some Challenging and some are easy. Should be a good day of fun.(Dec. 2nd) And for those of you that would like to camp out at Hungry Valley ther is plenty of camping there too.(Dec. 2nd)

    If this doesn't sound appealing to anyone then the floor is open for suggestions.(Dec. 2nd) After all if we are wheeling we are having fun no matter where we go right?

    Oh by the way did I mention that Dec. 2nd the only day I would be able to go?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Dang that sucks. Well we can take a vote. Either the 2nd or the 16th. I think I can make it the 16th also. MAN that means I have to wait an extra 2 weeks to wheel and it's been so long.[​IMG] I don't know if a lot of people would want to do it so close to X-mas but like I said lets see what's better for everyone.

    Also Larry sent me this pic of what I believe is the first hill of The Miller Jeep Trail <a target="_blank" href=http://www.expeditionexchange.com/miller/DSCN0208a.jpg>This was taken on the same day that it claimed the whole rear end of a Range rover.</a>

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.expeditionexchange.com/miller/indexmain.htm>This is the link to the whole album</a> Looks pretty cool. The Sidekick Maps say that it's passible by all 4X4's when it's DRY But NOT Passable when there is snow or even lots of rain. Looks like FUN FUN FUN FUN!!!!!

    I'll chip in with a tentative "yes" right now, although I will have to double check that weekend. Just asked Ryan, he said he is a go for that also. If Preston's Bronco is working, he will more than likely go, too.

    I'll let you know for sure ASAP. Who knows, they might have snow by then? Supposed to get some tonight!

    I'm down for the 2nd, or the 16th, cause im single, have no commitments, so either will work for me, and BTW if y'all do want to go up on Sat and camp, there are firing ranges up there, if they are still open, i don't know i'f i'll be able to get up there on sat, but its an idea for some of y'all. Trucks, camping, and Firearms, what could be better?

    Well, hell Esteban why didn't you say there were ranges there?? That might be fun, go shooting Saturday and wheeling Sunday? But then again, don't know if I can spend the whole weekend there...we'll see.

    Well if you go to the shooting ranges, you'll be doing half of the trail already. I Believe all of the shooting ranges are up at the top of Alamo mountain and that is where we will be driving too once getting off the Miller Jeep Trail.

    Ok I know I said I would make the last one, but the $$$ just was't there. But I can't miss 2 in a row. So count me in, Hungry valley is only about 30 min from my house.

    P.S. anyone got any pics of the last run I can drool over? It sounded great sorry I missed it. I could have used that Saws-All, I still need to trim my fenders.
