Would you say this is ok for a novice driver and someone new to the sport? I don't even have OBA or any recovery gear. I am just starting Would that be a problem?

I got you covered; don't worry about it. They'll be plenty of air available

Absolutely. Decent tires and a maintained vehicle are a good idea and grab a shovel if you have one. A CB or HAM radio would be nice so you can communicate with everyone too. There will be plenty of air, straps and recovery gear, so just come with the idea of having a great time. If something makes you uncomfortable, don't hesitate to speak up and someone will be glad to help. Rising Sun leaves no one behind, ever.

These trails are by no means hardcore and there are lines that a stock vehicle can do. There is a possibility of whacking your bumper on Hackett Rock.

With the sun and warmth today, everything should be good and muddy. Shaping up to be a great run!

PM me if you have any concerns.

Thanks baja1d and Fishy for the additional information. I haven't had the best experiences going out yet, always broke something (like having a radiator blow up). I just got my 80 back from Robbie who did a complete engine rebuild so I only have 340 miles on my new engine. Robbie said it would be ok as long as I didn't idle the engine too long or run at too high RPM for a bit. He said "that's what these things are for".

I will try to clear my day and will let you know in a few hours. You guys are really good at making a new guy feel welcomed to the sport. I learned about Robbie through this forum.

I talked to Sam about blowing off his basketball game for some Saturday trail time, but it's a long way to travel from Boulder just to get to the meeting spot. Not sure if we can pull it off. We'll make a go/no go decision tonight.

^^ It'd be great to have you along, Matt. It is a pretty good haul from Boulder though, so I don't blame you.

Ok, been lurking on this one and have arranged things where I can go. Two burritos please :-) I'll also be on my low quality, scratchy, barely readable back up CB :-D One day, I'll save up enough money for a ham.
