Sundays or mondays are good for me. A sunday run would actually be perfect. which sunday? any sunday!

I'd like to have a strong showing of Explorers out there, because there are tons of Jeeps out there. I went last weekend with a bunch of jeepers, they were surprised by what an Explorer could do.

Its a full day run, 6 to 8 hours bar any major troubles.

It would definately have to be a Sunday for me then. I'm out of vacation time at work so I couldn't get a Monday off. We should definately do it before it gets hot again considering it is in the middle of the desert.

This Sunday might be OK. I probably won't know until Saturday though. My Wife works this Sunday so I'll be brining along my 3 year old daughter. I've been wanting to head out to Box Canynon though.

I'm sure I do, but go ahead and e-mail it to me at reberhardt@qwest.net to save me from digging it out of the pile that keeps growing in my office.

No, I was unable to get ahold of Robert. Or should I say he was unable to get ahold of me. However...

We are going to try and make the run to Box Canyon on SUNDAY, FEB. 25th, should be 3 or 4 other Explorer's this time.

Ryan,

Sunday still works for me. Did your phone number changed since your phone got stolen? Let me know the details about the trip.

No, same phone number.

I think we should meet at the turn off for Box Canyon at around 9am. I'll put the directions to get there here by tomorrow night.

Bring lunch...water, ect.

Maybe we could join you. I'll have to check with the boss. We were jsut out that way last weekend. We did a run just west of Superior. Can't rememeber the name of the trail right now. We did the run with 4 Jeeps and a full size Bronco.

I might be up for a run then. Im still mostly stock. As long as its not a trail thats way over my head Id like to go too.

I hate holding up a bunch of modded trucks.

I need to replace my antenna, but I can have that done by then.

Oh yeah, are kids welcome? Dogs?

Thanks

Clint~ I don't plan on tipping over this trip. No, I haven't got a new mirror. But I did just get hit by a snowbird in that door, so all the damage I caused will be repaired on her ticket!

Steve~ Kids and dogs are welcome. You shouldn't have any troubles, I've made this run with stock Jeeps (both Wranglers and Grand Cherokes). With some spotting, the Grand Cherokes didn't drag that bad due to the longer wheelbase. However, Wranglers tend to drag gastank.
