Memorial Weekend Run

FOF is planning a Memorial run on Fordyce to clear the trail and clean up as we go.

Based on conditions and river flow of course.

Put it on your calendar. We don't need confirmations. Just show up and run the trail from Indian Springs to Meadow Lake.


More the merrier!

If you have not run the trail before or are running less than 35's or are not locked up front and rear PLEASE DO contact me for further planning.

It was only one wheel and it must have been your fault just like the ring gear and fuel pump..I think it's some type of voodoo hex you put on me

You need a new job. Your present one gets in the way of your wheeling.

Well with any luck we should have nice flows to cross, already cruising back down to 400cfs, hopefully we can get it back down to 250 or lower, then I will feel better about crossing on the 37's

Was going to hit moonrocks but with how warm it's been, I think the weather might be more comfortable on Fordyce so just may end up there instead

Any of you guys advise against me bringing the 7month preggo wife with me? This is our first baby and she is not high risk or anything and she wants to go. I know I can crawl and move a snails pace and anything to sketch she will get out and walk and all that. Just trying to figure out logistics and see if it's worth it. Thanks

Hey Jeff,
Might see you up there on Saturday, want to check out your new rig. I'll see if the rest of the group has recovered from Moab yet...

I would not do it but that is just me. If something did happen rescue would be pretty far away time wise by land and helicopter rides are quite expensive.
