    I made the reservations today for HollisterHills. June 28,29 & 30. I talked to the ranger and he doesn't know if the TTC is going to be held there this year are not. They are in negotations right know for it. I would like to get a general idea how many rigs.. I told him 50. That is what I told him last year and we only had 22 Blazers, 1 dodge dakota, 1 Toy, 1 Bronco... and one Neon.(LOL) Not holding anybody to a positive yes. But I would like to tell them about how many.. It is $6.00 a night for camping per rig. Or I can get the entire camp ground for $200.00 a night.. If we had 50 rigs it would be cheaper for everybody if we just got the entire campground. But I don't know how to split up the price to everybody. Some people will only stay for 1 night and some 2......Dan

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    I don't want to drive that far to do a trail ride and break my truck! I would have to take it easy since I only have 33's and open.....knowing me I won't take it easy and break it in half! lol

    How many miles is it from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Hollister Hills, CA? I think that would be a possibility. Of course, depends on if the Jimmy is done.

    well if you are worried about breakin something...ride up with someone and just hang out...its still alot of fun...come on bill...even with 10 bolts i doubt you will break anything...everything at holister is not all that hard..except for tank trap...i wouldent even try that....the only one crazy enough becides steven at ORD is babyblue..lol..i dident witness that since i left the day befor last year but he left with the most damage. haha...

    Bill...Just take the blazer. Last year the people that abused their trucks the most also drove the farthest (JunkYardCrawler, Baby Blue, and Me). There will be alot of guys there and enough spare parts to build you a hole new truck for the drive home! I have spare 12B and D44 stuff so you don't have to worry about that[​IMG]. Last time there were a great number of 1st gens there and it would be great to have one more! The drive is ONLY 350 miles and I am sure gas prices will be alot cheeper than last summer!

    I think you are running out of excuses so....it looks like you WILL be going[​IMG]


    No pressure though.

    Wow, I would love to make both, I think i would be my hero too, lmao!!! I am already planning on Moab, maybe i can talk the wife into heading out twice this summer.....Yeahh Right!!! The problem being, The Jimmy is more set up for Hollister than Moab, I dont have a lot of flex and do have a lot of lift. Who knows, i am still gonna try to make both, hehe. Happy Trails....
