I was thinking of organizing a trail run for this summer, which would include running the fun trails at both Evans creek and Elbe hills. This would make it worth while for people who live some distance from here come and enjoy a weekend of offroading.
So who wants this to happen?
When would be a good time?
I would think that mid-July to mid August would be about perfect because the weather would/should be nice enough for camping outside.
To be able to run all these trails and get camping sites it would go like this
Camp at Evans creek campground Friday and Saturday night.
We could do some night runs on Friday and the more difficult trails on Saturday day then Early Sunday morning break camp(7-8 AM) and then Head for Elbe hills(about 2 hour drive) and then do the Busy wild.
For less modified rigs there is easy trails at both places
There is also camp sites at Elbe hills.

Input please

Sept. 1st - 4th I'm cleared to come up for the run! I've got a few bugs with my sas I have to get fixed, and I'd also like to get some rock sliders fabbed up and install a rear Aussie locker to help out with trying to keep up with you guys. Should be a fun time :D

UMMM you're gonna want to ride with someone :D I'm not sure I would take my Limited out there except for the camping, although the last time to Reiter was a little more than I had origonally planned. Even HAD to use the winch :rolleyes:

Sounds like fun, I don't know how much offroading my little explorer could do, but be willing to try my best, hang out, do the camping thing, etc... Labor Day weekend looks like it might work...
