Looking to see who would be interested in running the Busy wild on the last day of the year?
This would be a early start 8-9 Am AT the trailhead and could take all day depending on conditions
Min. requirments would be traction tires and winch

20 days to go, I went through Elbe and it would appear all the snow is gone, which is kinda weird because if you heard towards morton on hwy as soon as you crest the first hill there is lots of snow
 






The Mud was this deep

It was this tight in places

Within the first 50' of the trail we lost a bronco2 because of a u-joint failure.
By the end of the day our group of 4 had 3 broken windows, 3 marking light wiped out, couple bent bumpers, very numerus body panels damaged.
I had a good time and looking forward to next year, But I think I may need to recruit a new group to go with me, I know one guy who does not have any intentions of coming back

That's typical of any outing Joe puts together :D He likes to see other rigs get :p hurt
 






I had the biggest rig there, track width, wheelbase, overall length, weight, All I got was the normal dents and dings.
On the other sites I visit I do have a disclaimer about body and mechanical damage, heck look at my blurry avatar
