(8a) i just ran 8a and yes you can make it with 33's but not sprung under. you would have to be winched up the 2 hills. but the creak bed was fun if you had a good spoter. my wife drove half of 8a.

Welby- You're Going to be fine

I'd run the 11 if you wanna die and break your shit up or the 9. Talk to Nick Sunday about the $5250 rock.

Hoyden I have run everything 6 or above in Gore (except 8A and I helped cut that one and 11) and I think that BDs consistently under rates their trails - once you know that, there is no problem- On 7 and up you really should have a winch and if it has rained recently 2 lockers is nice. But all of their trails are fun. I'll be spotting for a buddy in BoB - see y'all there.

He was mad but he didn't say much and just pulled off to the side and the rest of the group went around him. I never saw him the rest of the weekend. Don is one of the guy's in charge, so if he tells you to go back I guess you just have to listen and shut up. The trail only req. 1 locker but this guy could have used one in the front. He didn't listen to Don to much (spotting) and was getting an attitude. So it sucked to be him. If he would have listened to Don and not got the attitude I'd bet he would have not been sent back. I think the first think was the 10' cb ant. he had that was flying around and almost hit some of us.

xjpart2 its not like he has much choice. if your holding up an entire trail ride, the guide sends you back, and your vechicle is properly equipped you gotta think something is up...the guides up there have enough experience on those trails to play sheriff.

flimmy It took them awhile to cash my check last time. Call them and leave a mesage and email them also. I can send you the email they sent me. It looks like a form letter that would go out to everyone.
09-17-2002 04:11 AM
littlewhiteyj i sent my money on 9/5 . they have not cashed my check yet . i will give them a call when i get home today.

crawlin'YJ I'll be riding shotgun in my brother's YJ. 35" MTRs, XJ D44 rear with ARB and ZJ disc brakes, Homemade rocker gaurds, bumpers and swingout tire carrier, New front cage. We only signed up for like 5 & 6, cause we didn't know if we could get everything upgraded in time. We went on a extra ride on sunday during the icebreaker cause it was early and most people left. It was our Jeep and Jimmy's CJ and another guy in a CJ. We ran parts of a 7 trail, and that was when my brother had 33's and 4.56 geared d30 and d35c with no locker. It was a blast. This will be our 3rd event, cause last year we went to the main jambo, then the icebreaker, now this. Its a fun time, and the people there are really nice. They seem to underestimate their trails sometimes when they rate them, but that just makes it more interesting. I remember TBOTB last year, we watched some real nice rigs go. Of course, there were plenty of broken parts (gotta love hearing that unfamilier <snap>) It'll be fun

Yea, when did you send the $$ in ? I would go anyway. Did you send a check ? If so call the bank and see if it was cashed yet. In June they had my name down twice, one said I paid and the other didn't. Just go. They will work it out there for ya. Everyone there seems to be nice.

85TrailToy I got a confirmation email on 9/5. Sent the $$ in a long time ago, when did you send yours?

Wheeling? Need to talk with Jimmy re: ring and pinion.

John's rig has now fused itself to Jimmy's lift. The chances of it ever breaking free are pretty slim. ( Sorry John )
