    OK guys we need to roll (pun) on the trail selection, here is a good list for the difficult trails:

    Area BFE Friday
    Pritchett Saturday
    Coyote Sunday

    We need thoughts on easy and moderate trails, below is a list that jms provided from the crusier run he attended. They have Poison spyder listed as hardcore which I think would be moderate at best for someone with 33" and one locker but it gets you an idea of trails and such.

    I would like to have 3 volunteers for each trail: trail leader, mid person and gunner, that way if trail leader doesn't show up the mid person gets promoted to lead etc..

    I plan on picking the trails from your suggestions then having a poll for the top 3 etc. so nows when you need to speakup, also let me know if you can volunteer for a trail.

    I'm happy with that. I want to try some new stuff and I haven't done bfe or coyote yet, road along and watched, but not driven... Coyote might eat my truck though :eek1:

    If I can make it I will be running some of the tougher trails that a full bodied K5 can run. I have no regard for the sheetmetal so that isn't an issue. The only other thing I am not a fan of is heights so I am all about running trails that are in canyons and such.

    If I make it though I will be running with the rogue AZ crew so I am sure that we will just hit whatever trail doesn't have 52 people on it that day. I am up for trails like Pritchett, Upper Hell, Proving Grounds (if open), and anything that is hard for me but not undoable by my truck.

    Are Upper Helldorado and Proving Grounds even open anymore? I don't see them on the list above. What other hard trails are there.

    I have been on Moab Rim, Prittchett, Hell's Revenge, and Proving Grounds. Hells Revenge and Moab Rim aren't that hard. They are fun though.

    If you don't like heights than this trail is probably not for you, "rusty nail" trail also.

    Moab Rim wasn't alot of fun with the whole heights thing and neither was Hell's Revenge.

    Proving grounds is closed.
    Area BFE is the new hardcore tough trail area to be. All the cool kids hang out there.

    I am up for the BFE area, I have seen some good coverage on it in the last few years on Superlift and 4wheeler TV.

    I hate heights. I'm up for anything that my 3/4 ton open front and rear no regard for body damage Blazer will handle. Might even find somebody to weld some spiders for me before I go.... Never been to Moab before, so I guess I'll just run with whoever will winch me over the next obstacle? Colorado Crew, charrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrge!!!:D

    A different question- Who's done Behind the Rocks? What's your experience. I've never done it.
