Sweet. I just mapped a couple trails last night and today. Some are part of the dbbb and some are part of the Kat plus a few not on either of those.

I will also have. Set of struts with 3 inch lift blocks in them. Nothi M&g fancy and the strut is weak but will get someone out in a pinch.

Ok. I would like opinions. We have a few options for camping arrangements. We could stay at a campground for the duration, dispersed camping or move from camp ground or site to the next. Which does everyone prefer? I can work the trails however.

We are closing in on the ride. I will be finishing mapping here over the course of the next 4 weeks. Camping arrangements to be determined. Depending on size of group. I will also have a copilot seat open as well. Bring your own tent.

I personally would prefer changing sites as I can’t legally reserve a campground spot at 16

Cp, no real need to reserve. Just show up most grounds have plenty of sites. Also you can let me know and ill get it if they need ID when you show up.

Looking forward to this. I think moving camp spots each day would be nice so we get to see more of the area. Kid friendly event right? Any idea on time/location or meet on Saturday the 29th? Not sure we can stay until the 3rd due to school/ but we’ll probably head down Friday and stay until at least Monday.

Would this meet be open to non GMT360s?

My dad is not really against it but my mom is not ok with me driving 5 hours alone. I have a buddy who I haven’t asked yet. He has a stock Tahoe on ats.
