There is always Dusy-Ershim for you guys to shoot for, but it would have to be a small group. More than about 4 -5 trucks becomes unmanagable pretty quickly.

Something to consider would be Rubicon followed immediately by Fordyce Creek, but I'm not sure the 80s are a good idea on that trail. It's as challenging as Rubicon, and maybe more so.
You could easily get to the Black Hills in two days! I referred to Minnesotans as they are usually the heaviest representation of non South Dakota wheelers at the event.

I would love to run Fordyce and Dusy/Ershim as I haven't run either before. Several of us that drive 80's have 40's also so rocks just don't scare us much!

What ever the destination it seems NorCal and RS have a lot of similar style so we definitely need to get together more often! Oh, and don't forget to bring the boat!
