    Elephant hill.
    Would be a long trail day. But one I've always wanted to do. I've been told several times we Will fit through the Squeeze Play... With very careful driving. Lmbo
    Loved that there was a Hells Run. Wish i could have made that.
    Pritchett is my goal someday.
    Don't really care what we run as long as it's With you all.

    I'd still like to do Lockhart basin. I know it's not a hard one but it looks pretty. I'll have the toyota with me this year so I'm down for some harder stuff with that one.

    1.hells
    2.flat iron mesa
    3. Crack and back.

    You guys think my truck will make it on open diffs? I hope to get a locker in the rear before.

    Flat iron Mesa has to around on everything but the entrance. Lawrence did it in the DP suburban.

    Crack n back has winch points when needed.

    I remember now, had to look at the map. I believe it was the newbie trail in 14 which I rode with you wade.

    I'm torn on what trails to run, I obviously can't do Pritchett or moab rim. I like the idea of Scott's big adventure but I'm a bit on the slower end and don't want to hold the group up.

    I also don't want to leave my buddy hanging it's his first time really crawling.

    The ones you posted look fine. Or After Hells, Scotts, the decide later what you want Sunday.

    The Rim is better with lockers. Not real fair to drag a noob up it. But thats what happened to me my first trip to Moab. I lived

    No, or youd run Prichette'e with Jack!

    A lot of us have to drive home too. Go and read the trail reviews of what you ran BB15. Obviously those or trails close in ratings will be just fine, and likely for your buddy too

    You can run both of them. Get a winch and a locker and you could survive Pritchett, sort of. Moab rim is not hard at all, just scary.

    I don't know. I haven't talked to Brandon about that yet. But I'm pretty sure Ben would get to Chewie and turn around.

    I don't want this to be a 24 hour trail so we need to come up with some rules to make sure everyone gets through safely and quickly.

    Agreed, wouldn't want to to run it anyway with my truck. It isn't built up enough for me to even think about it and I don't trust myself enough as a driver to tackle that yet.

    Street able is a major concern for me so welding is out.
