Oh ya for those who are too lazy to click on the link. The Chile Challenge is in Las Cruces, New Mexico and is a pretty big event. It offers wheeling from mild to wild. Do a search and you will find some cool pics. Oh the dates are February 25-28, 2004.

Question for those who've been there, done it. I noticed in the trail descriptions that many of the trails are X miles from the fairgrounds. Is it possible to tow to the trail head or do you have to drive the rig there? Driving my Samurai on the street is getting to the "interesting" phase :)

Most of the trails have a place to park at the trail head. It is a bitch to drive from the fairgrounds when it is cold as hell!

Just clear it with your trail lead...he will probably send you out early so you can be ready when they roll through.

The extreme trails leave earlier in the morning, so those with trailers can goto the trail head(air down) then the hard trails leave, and so on. Once you know where the airdown/trailer parking area is, then you can just go there, meeting up with your trail leader there(not telling what to do) Most vehicle are driven to the trails. I go as fast as the slowest vehicle.
The roads used have about 45 mph top speed. The moderate and easy trails might use the highways(65 mph), with mostly stock vehicles. The trail leaders should help you out and take the best routes. Its kind of like MOAB, you go from one side of town to the other, no big deal. Some people just like to trailer:rolleyes: !

You should be OK driving it to the trailhead. I have seen some vehicles drive from the fair grounds that I would be scared to go over 20mph in and they were ok.
