WestCoast Pigrun '08

So what do you guys want to do this year?
FC wants to run the 'Con...'cause he'll have a new Pig by then...
Pighead doesn't want to drive to Deer Valley 2 weekends in a row...
And, while traditionally we run the Rubicon every five years, maybe it's time to do it again...
And I don't want to rain on Orange's 45 run. Even though he did kinda steal our idea and our location and all...
Or maybe we need something completely new and different?

So the pig run is the weekend before the 45 run?

I'd like to try and make it this time...

my vote: either the Con, or "something new & different"

That there is part of the dilemma...Have the Pigrun in an easy place so anyone can come, or have a real "Run" where lots of Pigs are too skeered to go...

The Rubicon is has hard as you want to make it.You can run it from Ca to Tahoe with zero body damage.Its all the optional stuff where I end up crashin my shiz

I love the Rubicon but I have never been to Deer Valley so I dont care either way.I just know my Pig need to git out with its own kind

I say we change the date of the Pigrun to the middle of friggin' December, run deer valley with 20 feet of snow. Teach you to chop the top off a Pig....sip lattes? You must have us confused with the 80s crowd. and who's rig are you calling pretty?!?

You've discovered my bondo removal technique


Is the "base camp" at Loon still an option ??? or has that area we camped in couple years ago been closed off

That was fun not having all the extra crap in the truck

The Barrett idea seemed good. Are 40's still tolerated on the pig run ?

what about lake sterling off the cisco grove exit- east side part of four-dice.. ? really nice camping, and stuff to do that isnt crazy. And then great stuff for the others that want to get it.

cheers-

Thumbs up

This event has proven in the past that at least 15 pigs can show plus a good handfull of 40 's. Good raffles, good wheeling and good company makes this an event not to miss. So go no matter what trail is chosen everyone can base camp and support the event.

If wheeling a pristine grocery getting 55 doesn't work for you still show up and grab a spare seat with someone else. Support for our very small 55 owners community is essential for them to all survive and be ressurected.

This event is always worth the effort. So go wheel them pigs and have fun.

And would someone PLEASE flop their pig in the mud or rocks for me cause I'm not gonna be there to do it this year.

I miss you all.

Josh
