We will be there atleast bringing the lifted 5.3 plan to be on 35”s by then geared 4:10 and tuned! We will probably bring our “camper” as well not discussing that one until it’s finished but I think it would make for a pretty cool time!

Tsmith, tires a definite, armor not really a necessity if you choose your lines right. I have ran a lot of these roads stock.

Beachedwhale, cool. There will be stuff there for you too.

Cbus, trailx, regulator, and cp, looks to be turning into a good size group.

If it doesn’t take up too many school days I can come. When do we start the attendance list?

If you get stuck, someone will prob have recovery equipment. Some sort of recovery point on your vehicle is desired. Bring the food you think you need. You won't be provided any. Bring whatever cooking equipment you need to fix your food, or work with someone beforehand to borrow their stove during the trip. Don't expect someone to just let you use theirs. Lunches shouldn't require cooking or heating. Unless you're sharing a tent with someone, bring your own, and your own sleeping bag / hammock. Watch the weather approaching the date and pack appropriately.

As trailx has stated, recovery points will be a must. We can work around some of the gear. I myself have winch, hilift with chain attachment, straps and d ring shackles. I still have a kinetic rope to get and a snatch block. Food is on you. Also bring some form of money. We will most likely eat out atleast once at a great pizza place. Also if you need a tent to use i have a 2 and a 3 personground tent.

I'd be out for sure. But there wasn't a high chance of me making it anyway. Don't schedule it around me if you're free.

Those specific dates are just not good.

Josh PMed me about dates for the TECORE, I will try to start that conversation again. I'm just not sure of my own availability!
