    Is there an official thread or website or something with specific details for newbs? I'd personally be looking for easy/moderate type stuff not to thrash my truck too much.

    There will be a thread asking for recommendations on trails. The Blazer Bash web site will have trail descriptions for sign ups. It's still a little early to set these up.

    We always have newbie runs. Usually scenic, with moderate wheeling. Being smart and listening to spotters will get you through.

    A trip to Moab is definitely on the bucket list. Time off, the funds to go, and a way to persuade the family are the planets that need to be aligned.

    New England / East Coast guys might consider looking at a semi to haul a few trucks out here and then drive out together or fly out to meet them. I've thought that it would be a good idea to even find storage for a truck and make another trip out of it later. Or drive out, wheel, fly back home then fly to the truck and bring it home. It breaks up the 2-3 day drive and lets you get a couple of western 'wheeling trips worked in.

    Eileen and I have been discussing this. This year I will just bite the bullet and fork over the $1750 for fuel for the round trip in the semi. After that, I have to do something else.

    Might just drive my truck out to put on the event and bum rides. But that would suck.

    3400 miles round trip. 7mpg x $3.50.

    @NorCal69 @imiceman44 and I were talking about it and we're only 12hrs away. The thought of flying in the morning, wheeling in the afternoon is kinda cool though.
