Slaughterhouse 19 March?
 
Anyone interested in going to Slaughterhouse on the 19th? A friend of mine from work has never been wheeling and I figured that Slaughterhouse may be a good place to start. She has a stock Xterra and wants to exercise it a bit, but not too much. Any takers?

Thx!
Chris

I'm interested. I really like Slaughterhouse. Its in my old neck of the woods. Maybe I can talk my dad into bringing his super charged Xterra. Probably not though. This would be my first rising sun event :fing:

might be interested...haven't been there in a while.

My friend is totally geeked to go. She's owned the X since 2000, and it's never been off road. I don't think it's even been in 4 low. Another friend at work may go too, he's got a stock Chevy truck. Hope some other folks will go too. Should be a good way to get rid of some of the cobwebs that have been building up over the winter...

Great trail for just starting out. It's not too easy -- 'tain't a gravel road -- but not so hard that you'll be scared to drive it either.

It all depends on the amount of snow. I saw photos from earlier this season (Matt maybe?) where it looked practcally down to the dirt. I was on a January run on it one year where only a few made it up stump hill. Obviously that's closed now, but Rob Merideth was the only one who made it without chains or winching. Scott Yoder made it with chains, I made it with winching. In any case, we then ran it clockwise, instead of the usual CCW, and barely made it up to the barb wire fence at the top. We decided not to risk going down to the meadow because we may not have been able to get back up. The snow was a couple feet deep that day, more than half way up tires.

Interested but where?
 
19th is a good day for me and my 4Runners. Where is this Slaughterhouse?

I'm one of the newbies. Okay to bring my dog?

Would like to go as well. Newbie here, and new at wheeling. Would a stock 100 work out allright? Where do you all meet at?

The trail is a couple miles West of US 285, past Pine Junction but before Bailey. The turnoff is just before the top of Crow Hill. One of the nice things about this trail is that the trailhead isn't too far of a drive from the metro area.

We traditionally meet at the "Ugly Hotdog" (AKA Coney Island), however we may need to find a new spot: Click here for local news story.

A 100 should do fine, as long as a few scratches from tree branches are okay. As I mentioned previously in this thread, the amount of snow on the trail will make all the difference as to how difficult the trail is. With no or only a little snow, it's a pretty easy trail for any stock Toyota 4x4. With a lot of snow it might be limited to playing around some but not being able to do the whole trail. The trail runs in a loop.
