Peak time is happening now this year, but this trip in december is just a one day trip to play on the trails for people that can make that happen.

Add one more to the mix for WindRock......

A nice one day ride would be trail #2 out of registration, then over to #16....

Would there be any interest in splitting the cost of a cabin?

I am actually off on that Friday so I might want to come up and wheel a little Friday noon/afternoon as well. I might be interested in going in on a cabin if it makes sense and if there is a place to get some food. I definitely have to leave Saturday after the run to be home for church on Sunday morning.

I'm up for any trails. My preference would be to throw in some challenges with bypasses for open diff vehicles. I don't mind some mud but I prefer not to spend the day in it or in deep water crossings. I concede to the majority.

Trail 16 looks pretty good. Not hard, but requires 4wd.

Several restaurants nearby in Oliver Springs.  I'm with you try to avoid mud too, also the mud holes up there can have small coal particles in them, that can and do plug up a radiator. That happened to us back in our trip in 2008 during our ECJ5 trip.

Looks like fun!

Cool. Maybe we could dip some toes in the black trails on Friday and then a little less aggressive on Saturday?

I've missed way too many trips lately... count me in! Not sure if I'm doing Fri/Sat or just Sat. This should be another good trial run for the Sub.

I love the idea of Dec but I can’t pull it off. My jeeps are not dependable yet. The TJ has been down since Cheap Jeeps ride with a broken tranny. Unless things start looking up I’m gonna have to sit this out this year. We do have work in progress in the shop with the 2A’s and the 3 new jeepers! So next fall should be great.

More fun! dang it would be cold with no doors, heater running WFO.  Not sure I was wanting to use the NDTs this trip or not.  Hmmm maybe the new tires would be better to keep the side of the jeep off the rocks a bit more. won't have the the longer wheel studs in for the Jackmans yet but i'll put them on my other rims.
