I still really want to do this run but I 've missed that past couple of meetings due to some personal stuff that happens in life. Who's going and is anyone planning on trailering 40's or maybe a slow-mo 40 caravan?

The Grandfolks will DRIVE their trail rigs with all their gear to the trail at and above highway speeds! BTW How does your AC work in the salt flats of Utah?

I'm gonna try to make it, but I'm going to ride with someone (unless I magically get a lift and tires by then, which I'm not planning for but who knows? Someone may just drop them in my lap )

As far as A/C - as long as you can maintain speed you at least got 2-55! (2 windows @ 55 mph!)

2-55 across 60 miles of 100 degree salt flats in June + heated drivers side floor board = 130 degrees of heated seat! Got Frappacino?

Man once on the Rubicon trail, I'd love to be in a 40. But across Colorado, Utah, Nevada... forget it (especially on the way back!)

So my wife and I had a talk today about our plans for this year. And I'm a GO for Rubithon!

I'm planning to take the 80.

Hmm...seems I need to either do some mods to the 80, or get the 40 up and running and modded by June. Count me in one way or the other...

I have been lurking in the shadows drooling about this adventure. Can some one please tell me the starting point and ending point? Reason being I may be able to talk my wife into a long road trip. We wanted to to do Highway 1 again but from the near northern starting point.

I may be able to talk her into a different road trip and make the run.

How do dogs do on the trail etc. We would like to bring our two Golden retrievers with us as they are our "Kids"

If there is a trailer going out there I may be up for that depending on cost. My 4Runner is not my DD so I can drop it off early and pick it up when ever.

Thanks for any info ahead of time and any vaca suggestions spots are appreciated.

Well we've obviously got 6 months to work out the details, but right now the plan in my head for the RS caravan is to leave Denver early AM on Monday 6/16.. drive at least half the way then try to remote camp somewhere fun. Drive Tuesday 6/17 until we're more or less at the destination, then some can hotel it for a night, others can camp again.. event starts Wednesday morning, 6/18 and finishes on Sunday 6/22. So then we can decide if we want to bail Sunday night to get a jump on the drive, or just wait until Monday morning, but so we're back in Denver some time on Tuesday 6/24.

I've already discussed this with a few folks who are committed to going, but later on this spring we'll organize some planning meetings for all the club members who are interested, with two main objectives: One to one map out our route & itinerary, both ways, make sure we've got a plan and everyone's needs will be met. And two, discuss our vehicles and what maintenance & mods everyone needs to get done, and when they're going to do it. We'll probably have a couple tech parties for the latter as well.. this is essentially a 9 day trip, 6 days high range and 3 days low range.. we're going to do this right.

Stacy and I have talked about this and started to put a little coin aside for it too. My tailbone is still up in the air, but I would be interested in splitting the cost of trailering my 40 out there. This becomes an expensive trip for us pretty quick, but driving the famous Rubicon with my RS friends, what could be cooler!

Shipping my 40= Lots of $
Adding an ARB locker to the 40= Lots of $
Adding Sliders to my 40= Not too much lots of $
Shipping Stacy and Myself out there= Lots of $
The expenses of a big trip= Lots of $

Riding the Rubicon with friends... PRICELESS!
