Let me know if you want a cutoff on numbers and I will set it up.
it'll still be streetable. you won't hardly notice it, and then wwhen you save $$ for a detroit, just swap it out
I wouldn't weld it in your case either. I would put the G90 you swapped me for back in though.
I need to discuss that with Brandon. But I'm thinking 10 would probably be more than enough to get us in trouble.
The two of us should be a plenty large group for this adventure.
In all seriousness 10 (including Brent and I) is more than big enough. We're going to have to start early and plan on pushing through just as hard or harder than we did last year. I would say this is a good time make sure each person can make it through the easier parts of Pritchette' without a spotter.
Was that before or after you broke Brandon, the pushing part.
I think that Chewy could be a pretty good filter. I like that it's right at the beginning. If you're intimidated by that and need a spot, you need to do this with a group that's got all day to do just Pritchett.
I don't really have anything to say other then the Pritchette' part.
It's Prichard, read the sign, duh
Depends on which sign you read.
So, unless you have driven the trail before how would you know if you need a spotter on the "easier" parts?
Almost sounds like first timers for the trail need not apply.
I'm the trail leader, you can watch me and whoever else is in front of you go up.
Personally, even on new trails I only need a spotter if I get stuck. Watching someone else go up first is enough for me to spot my own line up usually.
That is true.
I think he's just trying to weed out the less experienced people. If we have to stop and spot people all the time, it's going to make for a long day.
Yes, And Pritchett can be done fast, I think Me, Reddog, Marv and one other person made it to the last obstacle in 45 minutes one year, then turned around and ran it backwards.
It was 45 minutes from rock pile to the trail head on the way out. I believe it took us about 3 hours to go in.
I knew there was 45 minutes somewhere
One time I ran Prichard in 30 minutes with my Ford Taurus station wagon. Don't think the coupe could have done it.
I was pushing too hard at that point, obviously, Duh.
We didn't really take much time messing around this year, and we had a somewhat big group, but I'm not sure I would have wanted to jump into Behind the rocks on the way out. At least not with the whole clan. That is provided I wasn't broke at the time.
For those that haven't done Pritchett' (Prichard') etc. recently there are a bunch of "nuisance" obstacles now that aren't particularly hard but need to be paid attention to. These are the ones that if you can keep moving and not "stop" the trail goes smooth. If you end up stopping and having to spot everyone down everything the day starts to get long. It's not even that your having to spot someone up or down something that slows the day down, it's getting everyone back in their vehicles and moving again that takes time.
If you don't have to stop, people don't get out, therefore you don't have to herd cats to get them back in the vehicle to go. I've also developed the mindset that once the last guy is through the trail leader should already be getting started up and moving again.
