Ohhh Yeahhhhhhh!

The Swamp took us about 12 hours last time, so most of the day is an understatement. ;)

With you locked up in the rear, and having sliders, we should get through in 30-45 minutes tops..... :p :rolleyes:

More like ten hours instead of 12. That is one bada$% trail!

With all the recent rain and snow, there should be a whole lot of bugs up there this year.

For those who went last year, do you remember the camping spot in the forest when we came out of the gates for swamp? There were some people camping there with a campfire.

I was thinking that would be a good spot. Easy to get to but away from all the traffic.

I may be in for this. The terrain looks a lot like the Rubicon. Is it pretty similar?
Also from the people that are going we can probably caravan up there meeting up with people along the way. :thumbsup:

It is a lot like the Rubicon, and just as scenic. Its worth the six-seven hour drive for me just to run the Swamp again.

This looks like a lot of fun! I am planning to make it. And maybe get an extra day to find some nearby fishing.
