OK folks.  I think that we've hit critical mass for this run. Any more rigs, and we will self-destruct. I'm going to limit the run to the folks that have already posted up, please. The only way that we will be adding more people to the run is if folks that were previously coming have decided not to.

We're going to break into three groups, as follows:

Group #1 - airing down at the gravel pit, going to the falls to cook some hot dogs on the fire:
w squared (trail leader)
Rubi03jef (tailgunner)
Pookapotamus (midgunner)
Rubibago
Silverfox
Knox
Koda2010
Bone206

Group #2 - airing down at the South Ghost unloading area, going on a tour of the "Winter Loop"
Specialk (Trail Leader)
JohnnyC (Tailgunner)
Immortal
Elsifer
Rich
Tubby
AVNine
Avalanche

Group #3 - Airing down east of Camp Chamisol, going to Margaret Lake, and then maybe on to winter loop trails.
MoreRPMFred and Joel will play Rock/Paper/Scissors to determine who leads this group and who tailguns.
Brooneg
Bushman67
MHernden
Aladin
Fug
Alltornup
Brooneg's dad (yota)
Brooneg's buddy (yota)

If turn-out is light, we will reduce things to two groups, with SpecialK and myself as the trail leaders.

The other thing that I will say is that myself and the other trail leaders will be holding people to the requirements. This includes recovery points that are not "sketchy", and tires that will work well on winter trails. Please ensure that your rig is mechanically sound, has a full tank of fuel BEFORE you arrive at the Smitty's parking lot, and that you have plenty of food, water, and warm clothing for everyone on board.

For those of you with new rigs...yes, body damage is possible. We will not be doing anything wild, but for those folks with rigs that have never been offroad, please understand what you're getting into. I drive my Jeep every day, and I don't "beat" on it...but after two and a half years years of wheeling it, there IS body damage on it.  Shocked You may find that your air dam, rocker panels, and/or rear bumper are showing "battle scars" after this run, especially if you're new to offroad driving and haven't yet figured out how to choose your line to avoid body damage.

Requirements will be:

-Good AT or MT tires with lots of tread.
-Proper tow points front and rear - please don't expect to borrow parts of other people's vehicles to make your tow points work.
-Full sized spare
-Ample food and water for yourself and all passengers
-Vehicle in sound mechanical condition
-Appropriate winter clothing (including boots, gloves, hat) for everyone in the vehicle, and some extra warm clothing
-Spare footwear and socks - because frostbitten toes are no fun
-Top off your fuel tank in Cochrane just before we meet
-All non-members will be asked to sign waivers

Items that would be helpful if you have 'em:
-Shovel
-Chains
-Recovery strap (nothing with metal ends, please)
-CB

We'll meet at the Smitty's in Cochrane at 8:45, and roll out at 9. Everyone please make sure that you top off your tank in Cochrane before we meet at Smitty's. While I'm sure that at least some of the gas stations will be open, I wouldn't plan on picking up much other than jerky and chips in the morning

I followed a rainbow out to a garage and found a leprichaun. The rainbow ended in a potted cactus on his porch, but there was no gold :(

Definite yes on the fire and hot dogs as long as it's not ridiculously cold.

The lake would be great, or the falls would work well too. I'm planning this as being a "kid/wife/girlfriend friendly" run.

If Pook and I get everything switched over from the '93 to the new(er) zj I should be in.

I hope  ;D

Seven slot grill + a Jeep badge of some sort, and I'm good with it  ;D

It's not going to be a quick run, so you'll probably spend lots of time waiting for Jeeps to get outta the way. If you're good with that, I don't see why not.

Was debating on doing both the boxing day and this one...............seems the boss has other plans so I am down to just this one.

I am planning on bringing my two hooligans (10 and 8) if that is ok?

Hooligans are welcome. This is a 100% yard ape friendly run. All that I ask is that your bring plenty of food, drinks, and warm clothing for 'em.  :)
