Default 2011 40's Only Run!

Who:

FJ40 Owners!

What:

Just what it says, a run for Only FJ40's!

When:

Sunday August 28th - Day after the Rising Sun Rally!


Where:

Argentine Pass! New venue for the 40's Run. I thought some new scenery would be nice.


Why:


Because it's fun to wheel with a bunch of old-school rigs once in awhile.


How:


Dust off your 40 and let's go.

This is the Fifth annual Rising Sun "40's Only Run". The plan is to meet up at the Georgetown Visitor Center at 9:00. We'll then head up Guanella Pass to the Argnentine Pass Trailhead and do some exploring.

It's a fun, easy, scenic trail any FJ40 can do. If the weather permits, we might even make it to the top of Argentine Pass. If not, there's still a lot of trail to explore and the scenery is hard to beat.


I hope all the 40 owners can make it. If you don't have a 40, you're welcome to ride along.



2007 - Kingston Peak





2008 - Red Elephant Hill, Mill Creek





2009 - Wise Mountain









2010 - Georgia Pass, Swan loop

How about we have some form of tech inspection on the day of the Rally so we don't spend all day Sunday fixing stuff? Or a reminder that if you know there is something wrong with your 40, it will not miraculously fix itself and it will probably get worse going up the mountain

That's half the fun.

Not a bad idea.
