Sat. Nov. 6th
Meet at the Gunsmoke Truck stop in Johnson Village\Hwy 285 at 9:30am - Leave by 10am.

We can air down at the parking lot so we are ready to go since the trailhead is nearby. This trail will have some difficult sections. I understand that the first section of the trail has gotten dug out and is also difficult. So at least a rear locker is highly recommended. Stock vehicles should pass on this one.

We will use the default frequencies:
CB Channel 4
HAM 146460

I am in. Not sure if it will be me with just the older boys or the entire family plus two Bernese Mountain Dogs :eek:

Chinaman's has been getting more dug out in the initial rock garden over the years, so we should have some fun :D

Anyone want to meet up for the drive up? I'm thinking we should be heading up from 285/C-470 at 7AM for a 2.5 hour drive up.

Sounds good. We will also have two 2001 Runners coming. Glen, who I don't think I've met, and Mike Brown (Sandman) with his family.

ok, but we are thinking 7:30 is plenty. Are you on HAM? CB? both? what's your callsign/name.

We're hoping to leave Starbucks :D at 7:00AM, or so. We probably won't "caravan" as I expect to have to stop and fool with my tow rig a time or two. I will have the CB on 19, unless I see a different channel in this thread. We'll be in a black Excursion with a silver 4Runner behind it.

Will there be any other spousal units along?

My Girlfriend is coming> Scott may want to update the first post, but typically we use channel 4 on the CB for runs and 146.460 on the HAM.

It may just be me on this run. Kids have some kid schedules and so :Princess: is taking a pass.

Scott, just wanted to post that as I'd said I'd have the family along since this weekend was chosen with you maybe bringing yours.

That's OK. Wish they could come though. Mike Brown and I will have our kids with us.

60's got a fresh spring on the front, bolts checked, and everything greased.

Hi Carlos. because CB's are so bad, lets try to reach each other but in any event head up. I probably won't roll through till 7:40 ish anyway.

Springs are good. I have a new feature, long overdue, and my passenger (Dmitry who was with us on the SNR) tells me he has prepared a gourmet meal for it :drumsticks: :drumsticks: :

I am super jealous, don't suppose anyone has been paying attention to the weather or lack there of!!!!!!

Hope you all bring your cameras, 'cause the pics with sunny blue sky and awesome Toyota 4x4s climbing over giant boulders will be really awesome.

Also don't forget pics while recovering, winching, etc....

Looking forward to the report!
