I am going to try hard to go in this trip. I will plan to go on Saturday, with a contingency to go on Sunday.

I'm Out

Finallly got the X inspected and legal for this state but the zuk is out of commision still and fund just ain't available.

Anyone wanna spotter? aka a bum in your rig for the day/weekend?

i'll be there on sunday, but not saturday. andy, you can ride with me if you want, but i'm only riding stock class trails, since i've only got a tt/shackle done. is it just going to be the 4(?) of us, or is there more?


THE OFF-ROAD PARK IN CROZET, VA, DOES NOT HAVE ANY TRAILS THAT A STOCK VEHICLE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH. I RECOMMEND AT LEAST 33'S, AND A LOCKER! i have only a tt/shackle lift, and no bumper so i can get some more clearance, and i made it about 12 feet into the trail. ya, the easy trail. pretty embarrasing, but i thought everyone should know since this is where the big meet will be in june. luckily i only destroyed both side bars, and scratched up all the plastic i have. nothing important broke, but then again, this was on the 'go-around'. lol. fortunately for me there were nice enough people there to let my friend and i jump in their jeeps, and ride with them for the whole day. i have pics, and will post them as soon as i can figure a way to do it.

What trails did you run? They do have low blues & high blues. Hopefully you guys ran cripple creek pass.

I skipped cripple creek after our guide cut on sidewall and lost a bead on another tire just entering the trail (obsticle). We did the medium blues, and I went around the harest obsticles. It was my first time so I am still learing what the driver and vehicle can do.
