Still awaiting confirmation from Slickrock. We're trying to get a central vendor area, but we can't post up any details until they confirm.

We'll keep you posted.

As much as I had a blast in 2007 and one trip was just not enough to see everything, I will be focusing efforts and resources on on ACT2008 this year. Maybe I will come the year after - who knows maybe even with children by 2009. If I have anything extra to donate for the raffle, I will send it on its way. Cheerio - Hapy New Year!

Doubt I'll make it as I'm about to lose the garage until June, but I have a couple questions about the safety inspection just in case.

Is complete stop good enough for auto trannies, vs engine stall, in the braking requirement?

Winch required?

Thanks ...

Sean,

ebrake must hold an auto tranny at 1200 rpm (although they made me test to 2500+ rpm last year on accident )

More info here --> http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...ead.php?t=3306

As for winch. No, not required - maybe there are specific trails that require a winch that I am not aware of

See here- that's right out of TT last year.

It doesn't look like winch is required, but recommended at 4+ and up.

I will put my 2 cents in on the camping. Slickrock is a lot of fun. With that said, my wife would not appreciate all the testosterone and trucks coming in at all hours of the night. Portal Campground is right behind Slickrock. It is easy for the family to camp there and the Cruiserhead of the group can walk over to Slickrock. Their bathrooms are much better too.

If you camp in the back row behind the cabins, you don't hear the trucks coming in all night. It was nice and quiet back there.
