I so want to go - Chance of a lifetime to go with you guys and it comes a few years too early for me.

Anyone need a copilot?

The LX isn't ready for the Rubicon and neither is the 40 (which is a shame since it is fully locked, has OBA, shower, etc. etc.) I fear. I'm not sure I am either

Not even sure if I can get the time off but if anyone potentially needs a copilot let me know and maybe I can fill the spot.

Matt, just a thought but if you can't swing a winch before and want to borrow one, we could possibly swap mine off the LX and onto your 80. It is only an XD9000 but better than nothing. Of course that assumes I get it fixed and working good prior to your departure

Jeff,

I am trying to talk Sharon into going, so far it looks good. If she decides to bail I would like another person to travel with etc. I will keep you apprised over the next few months.

Your winch is another story I have not seen that happen myself. I dont think it will be to hard to fix. I would call Warn and tell them what the problem is, I bet it is a solenoid that is sticking once it gets a little power to it.

If we go I just need to buy a new tow vehicle..............

Front cage tied into the rear
Tire carrier
Roof rack attachment on the Can-Back
Install more lights
Exo cage if no interior cage
Extra battery
Bigger alternator
Bobbie Longs (I wish)
Paint the 4Runner so I can scratch it all up again

Or just get a tow vehicle and go as is............

I told him we had leaders and gunners and we were thinking of going in Wednesday....here is his response....

"thanks Kevin... this is exactly what I needed to know so we can plan accordingly. Wed has our wagon run too so the pace is laid back. Wed will allow you to camp at Buck, enter the springs on Thursday, hang out (hike, fish, swim, wheel cadillac hill and back) Friday and Saturday, Saturday is dinner and raffle, and we all exit Sunday out cadillac via the exit strategy. The exit strategy basically assigns a departure time to help spread the trucks out.

your group needs to decide logistics on trailering. REmember, you enter via loon but exit out to Tahoe. I suggest leaving trailers on Tahoe side (perhaps in casino parking lot) and drive 4x4s to Loon side, exit Sunday out tahoe to your trailers and begin your journey home. This is irrelevent to me, but will impact you guys a lot. if you trailer to Loon, you will be exiting backwards to Loon on Sunday, which is fun, but also a full day, leaving you in CA instead of NV.

thanks Kevin, keep me posted... I will plan for your group on Wednesday, with no trail leaders. Your other groups sharing the trail will be the wagon run and our wed run, total 3 groups, spread out about 2 to 3 hours apart.

Many of us here are very excited about CM this year too!

Tony"

OK, would love to go with the RS group, as well as attend my first official TLCA event as the new EVP. Doubtful I will have my 40 trail ready by then, so what would you experts recommend for my 80? Obviously a lift, bigger tires, front bumper, winch, sliders....I would be taking as mild a trail as possible as I have never been there. Thanks.

OK. Already changed my mind. Think I will leave th 80 relatively stock for DD duties and to keep the happy. So, building the 40 makes more sense, especially if we are shipping them out there. Hey Uncle Ben, still have that locked and lifted setup I could buy for my 40? Might as well do the suspension and lift while the engine is out of the truck, huh? SO what is my 40 shopping list to be Rubithon ready?

You can also ride shotgun. I think there will be a number of RS members going on this trip in a passenger seat.

That will be my 2nd option. It feels good to have a goal for my 40.
