Good move! The trip out is likely to be as fun as the Rubithon itself. Should be an extra seat in my truck if you want it Matt, though I've already got two riders penciled in, but we'll see what happens by June. I personally think though that anyone from the club who wants to go should go ahead and get the time off now, then see how things shake out come late May.. and more than likely there will be 3 or 4 open seat opportunities for you come June.

I should have an extra seat in my truck. I have to warn potentially shotgunners that it takes a special breed to ride in a mini truck. Crash has ridden in Imelda, so ask him sometime. But suffice to say that my seats are pretty narrow (think about how Dean and I are built). Lanky people will fit better. It also helps if you are not terribly spoiled by the cushy ride of a 62 or 80, it's definitely not anywhere near as smooth. But on the upside, you get to be a guest at the Hilux Hilton. Pillow mints and concierge are free, but please do not forget to take care of your help staff.

Push comes to shove, maybe I'll just ride out with someone. Probably makes sense to share expenses. I'd love to run my 40 on the trail, one time.

Rubicon is a kick! It's not practical to make the pilgrimage every year for most folks because it is a large time and expense thing. I guarantee most of our group (if not all) will fall in love with this trail and another trip will happen for most! Imagine doing a trail similar to Chinamans with a little Blanca and Holycross thrown in for scenery and an extra challenge here and there with overnight camping with your friends then ending at a huge catered party at a natural water park with take home gifts! Even if you just ride along your first time you will see what it's all about and will be dreaming of when you can drive it yourself! Dave Brown rode last year instead of driving Red Fox and he said he really enjoyed seeing so much more that you miss when your concentrating on driving.

Ok, you got me thinking about it again.
