Default CM06 Trail suggestions for a newbie...

Howdy all-

Well, I am planning on attending CM06 and I really excited about it. I checked out the link with the trail descriptions and honestly, was a bit overwhelmed. So I thought I would ask the experts

What are you favorite, or newbie suggested trails?

My 40 is a bit better than stock. I am running 35" MTR's, Open Diffs, and I have a 8274 up front. This is my DD and I really enjoy using my 40 without abusing my rig. I am looking for something with a few challenges, and great scenery, but nothing too hardcore. But I do want to learn, so I don't want to just drive fire road level stuff.

I have little real offroad experience (mostly mud... ih8mud and fireroads, light trails), and no slick rock experience at all.

I am thinking of a few "easyish" or moderate days, and maybe one more challenging day (maybe some fun obsticals).

What do you think? Any help would be great before I sign up. Thanks for your time.

PS: I am looking forward to coming out to a Rising Sun meeting next month as my work schedule has changed and I no longer have to work Wednesday nights.

Throw an Aussie Locker in the rear and you'd qualify for almost anything. It's easy. If you need some help, let me know.

Yeah man, takes like 15-20 minutes, bring it over I'll do it. Just bring more when we weld up your tire carrier!
