I have not run either gold bar or elephant but also wheel a stock 80 on 33's. I've run Hells Revenge, Wipe out Hill, Poison Spider, and Cane Creek. Some with the stock Michelin's. I would recommend sliders, but you probably can get by without them if your very careful. I opted for the MetalTech sliders as I wanted the cat protection. I find myself hitting that more than the slider itself. But I honestly don't go out of my way to avoid things now that I'm protected. Honestly I probably drag my receiver/spare/rear bumper corners more than I hit my sliders. So take that for what its worth.

Long story short sliders are cheaper than a trip to the body shop or a new set of OEM cats. Plus you'll have more fun if you know you can take a hit to the slider anyway.

I forget in which order. I'm sure I will switch it around based on what Greg needs.

We'll be ready to run trails Sunday through Wed too so anyone else who is showing up early should state when you arrive and what trails you are interested in running. That way we can put together some ad hoc groups in advance.

For the official runs we signed up for:
Thur-Elephant Hill (c'mon Cheeseman, go ahead and lead this one )
Fri-Behind the Rocks
Sat-Golden Spike

Good idea Randy, maybe for a new thread? I will be there Sat or Sunday if anyone wants to buy me a birthday beer. What runs I do depends on what I need to do for the CM Committee, but will definitely be running at least 1 trail every day Sat - Wed...
