2016 will mark the 20th anniversary for Explorer Forum:chug:

In celebration I plan on doing several runs over probably a month.

Nothing is set in stone yet, this will all depend on the level of participation in each area.

The areas I would like to visit are:

Truck Haven at Salton City, CA
Moab, UT
The Southern Missouri Offroad Park (SMORR)
and the Ford Nationals at Carlisle, PA

Ideally I would LOVE to be in PA for the Carlisle show AND run a trail in the area.

I know it's a year away, but I would really like to get as many members involved as possible, we also need to lock in reservation at the offroad parks.

This thread is open for discussion:thumbsup:

The attached photos are from Explorer Forum's 10th Anniversary events:chug: Man time sure flies!!!!

I'm planning on making Truckhaven, Gilmer, and possibly SMORR. Already notified work, (after Truckhaven) and their response was "2016"?

As far as which month...

Is the Ford Nationals at Carlisle the same weekend each year? It's June 5-7 this year.

I would love to go back to the Badlands in 2016....that was the start of most of my wheeling and the 1st testing of my SAS swap!

Hoping to hit Smorr this summer....

The month long part of the trip will be my excursion East. The runs will be held over the course of the year at the time best suited for the areas... Truck Haven in January, Moab in May, etc...

Badlands sounds like a plan for me. If I'm lucky, I may try and make SMORR too!

I'm in for anything I can strike in 18 hours from the Northeast. I'll be a total newbie, but I'll try to compensate with good barbecue skills.
