Okay, so the "Ultimate Tour" didn't live up to everyone's expectations. So, howsabout we do one of our own. Start planning NOW for spring/summer/fall of 2002. I say we START it in the Southwest, meander East/Northeast, then wind back West/Northwest to finish up in the Fall. We'll encompass EVERY conceivable type of terrain (Desert, Mountain, Mud, Sand, mild, wild, etc, etc). People from each region will be responsible for setting up a run in their area, on the type of terrain they want featured. The Mag can decide who to bring for the whole thing, but locals would be involved at each particular stop.

I'll start:

June 22nd & 23rd, 2002 in Central, MO. AR or OK needs to be at least a couple of days earlier, or up to a week earlier. TX before that, NM before that, AZ or NV before that, etc. After the 23rd of June, the tour could go to KY, Western TN, GA, NC, etc. up the East Coast, then back West through PA, OH, IN, MN, Dakotas, MT, ID, WA, BC.


Who's in?

That long of a trip is going to be spring/summer/and fall of 2002. But when it comes though Nevada on the way to the Con, I'll be ready.

Man that would sure be a BLAST. I'd love to do something like that, if time and money will allow it. In a West to East direction, we could hit the Hammers (CA), Highway to Hell (AZ), Proving Grounds (UT), Die Trying (CO), then head further East into the abyss of mud. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Abyss of mud, bahahahahah! Good one.

Yeah, the trip would be too far for one group of people - except for the journalist/vendor types. But, I figured the POR types could take part in the various stops along the way. For example, if you or your club were to make all the arrangements for one of the stops, that would entitle you to take part in some of the OTHER stops <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

Call it "The Endless Trail" ... kind of a take off on the Endless Summer movie. Now if I can just talk a Holywood type into sponsoring me and another 4 or 5 into a year of wheeling! <IMG SRC="smilies/cool.gif" border="0">

if my jeep is road worthy, i may be able to actually take a month off work and get it.. I have another guy that should manage it also.. we have talked about it allready, but we werent planning on going further west than OK. Heres a little known local fact.. NC actually now has 4 OHV areas. there is tellico, uwharrie, carolina beach, and the croatan. the croatan is the big mystery, and it is all mud...very very deep..were talking chevy duallies with 6 44's disappearing past the hood. if we could meet in ok, i could easily guide through all of NC as i have been to each of these places many times.(croatan is 4 miles away). I also have room for 4 people in my house for any wheelers passing through(it's on base, so behave)

...This would be sweet. May I remind you, that you are forgetting one very important terrain... Snow. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> ... Alaska or Yukon would be a good stop somewhere along there... <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

What would be nice is a BIG, national level title sponsor that will cover the WHOLE concept, so some of that money can be distributed to the local events involved in the 'series' to assist with local marketing... I think it'd be great!

...Run like a local rockcrawl/mudbog contest too? With spectators and stuff?

You'd need to do some type of year book (for lack of a better term) plus the video. That many trails would be one long movie.

Actually, it would be a whole series of videos. For example, one video could be nothing but carnage highlights from the various runs/events. One could cover all the mild "camping type" trails. And some trails/events would warrant their own dedicated video.

Just emailed the thread to Pewe. They could even do a monthly article like "Where they went this month."

Well if you want to wait another year, I am in for the summer part. I will be a teacher, so I get summers off. I am all over this, as I think it will be a blast.

I've done Uwharrie. Very nice area. Watched Mark Hall roll his Baby Blazer on Dutch John.
