Boxing Day open Run
« on: December 15, 2009, 03:25:39 PM »
first off, need someone to lead this run.  I am tempted but after camping this past weekend, and still breaking in my front gears, i am not yet ready to go out again.

So, hopefully someone will step up.  Lots of new trails opened up at waiparous = lots of snow fun.

conditions out there are pretty good.  icy in some spots and hills are always a challenge.
this means minimum requirements may be steeper than normal.

No Sh*t?  The SRD have actually opened up 3 formerly closed trails?  Hell must be freezing over...Which trails?

Looks like part of Mockingbird, Margaret Lake, Cabin Creek, Fallen Timber, southern part of Ghost Cross Country and a new connector trail off Meadow Creek.  Been a few years since I have run those trails, good to get them back if only during the winter season.  Will definitely add some interest and difficulty to our winter wheelin'.  Kudos to those that helped make this happen!

I may/may not be interested in this... Depends on if I can drag someone out with me on boxing day, and if you guys think a (mostly) stock '08 Rubi Unlimited could make it on those trails? I have confidence in my 4x4ing ability but I haven't seen many, if any, of the Waiparous trails myself.

I'm trying to get out on one now because I also need to break in my new camera...

I will be out helping Dom. For the 3 months those two trails are open I'll be out there clearing wind fall off the trail so the quads can sail through for the next 9 months. Next winter I'll probably be clearing 3 different trails for 3 months so the quads can sail through some more all year. Do you see a pattern developing? ;)


Oh ya.......Boxing Day...I'm sure we'll bump into you folks, be it at breakfast or on the trails, if it's not too cold.

I have my doubts about them being open by then.  Maybe with some luck.

Hmmm.... I suppose. But only since it is green.
I keep buying older Jeeps. Crazy is as crazy does....
if we were smart with our money we wouldn't own Jeeps.
Here's your cup of STFU... ENJOY!
