and Elephant Hill on sat.

But I got the Dawg... so i dunno about Elephant hill... says no dogs allowed. It sucks especially since i really wanted to do it. I think i am going to have to ask to have it changed.

and being a wuss I am worried about all those 3+ trails. Marco dunno how to drive rocks...

Hmmm...Think Mead would like to rid in the LX on Metal Masher on Saturday ...

Seriously though, if I had the room for her (I'm pretty sure she is a she right?) I'd love to take her off your hands for the day. The girls would LOVE it. But, I don't think she'd be comfy in the back with all the junk I'll have back there and no way she'd fit in the middle row with the girls . Maybe we could trade, you take my 's and I'll take Mead

Ha! yeah that'd be great! too bad we can't fold her up and stick her in a middle seat!

I can see it now... Mead in between the two girls with her seat belt on..

Marco, you'll be fine on those trails. I did Kane Creek last fall with 31s and a rear locker, all you have to do in rocks is take your turns wide to keep your sheetmetal off of the ones that are poking out at you. Nice smooth throttle to get you up stuff, and with your rear locker and 35s you're going to walk a lot of stuff. Fins is easy as it doesn't twist and turn through narrow stuff like Kane Creek, and by the time you (hopefully) run E-Hill you'll be an expert! But yeah no dogs in Canyonlands NP, so no dogs on E-Hill .

I'd take your dog but I'm also running E-Hill on Saturday.

Marco,

If you decide to switch out of Ehill on Saturday let me know. If you are interested in running Metal Masher (or something else available) I might like to see if I can have your spot on Ehill. This is probably the last year the 's are going to be able to attend CM due to school conflicts going forward and I hear this is a great trail for them to go on

Trail Assignments

Thurs Fri Sat

Wipe Out Hill (gun) Porcipine Rim(gun) Chicken Corners



I am jonesing for Moab bad!!!

A question for you all who were just out there:

I will be wheeling Pig this year, no lift, on 31's. The body is very nice as Pigs go, and I want to keep rockers and quarters intact.

Are Wipe Out Hill and Porcopine Rim wise choices for this rig? Does Wipe Out have a bypass for the actual obstacle?

I haven't run Porcupine rim, but Wipeout Hill will be no problem for a stock pig. If you take the direct, steep line down wipeout hill you will have no chance of damage. All the wagons on our run last year ran it down and up no problem.
