Depending on the group will determine which we take. It will be challenging for stock but not so much for others. But i know a few spots that they can traverse and we can bypass with lesser rigs.

Alright 2 weeks and counting down until summer break. Ill be down mapping trails for the ride. If anyone wants to join and pre run some of the trails and help with suggestions and what not anyone is free to come. I by no means am a one man show. But i do have friends who frequent the area that are going to help me with some of the planning.

If I’m able to make it I will have my canon 7D with me.

I’m still on the possible list. My mom isn’t sure if she is comfortable with me driving 400 miles. She said maybe if I bring a licensed friend.

I wish I could come. I run a small photography business, and have access to GoPros and drones.

We should be in for those dates. I’m putting it on the calendar now. I’ll likely bring my off-road trailer I built as well, it’s got more ground clearance than my Saab so no concerns there.
