SHHHHHHHWEEEEEEEETA!!! i had my hopes on getting that RCD kit you got, with my tax return money, until i found it got discontinued. so now i'm working with some fabricators to do a coilover conversion. hopefully it will be in and out of the shop by time of the trip (if not, i'll postpone the work until after the trip... HAHAHA!!!).

We can hit any trils you want. im down for a full day of driving. it sounds like its just a night run but i say we spend the night. some people may not like hitting trails at night. i geuss it dont matter, if we wanna stay the night then so be it. nothing saying we have to leave by a certain time right? ive been all over these hills and you can spend hours on just one trail. besides, im bringing the captain with me so im not planning on driving home. im gonna make it an over-nighter!

i never tried sidewinder... i do always go through bronco flats and 1 time went up the double black diamond side of bronco peak, by accident. got stuck on that trail at 2am with my rig the only rig on the trails with my wife ridding nav on her first offroading trip... soooooo, yeah, it wasn't the best of situations or the best of judgement... luckily i was able to back out of it safely.

now with bigger gears and a locker... i might be able to make it or at least get wenched through it, LOL...

i definitely plan on doing night runs (this ORV area is pretty dope at night and it leaves the trails open), but i will be spending the night, doing a morning run, and heading home saturday (sleep to be determined, lol...).

whatever everyone wants to do, i'm down. i think after we all meet up, we head out to the ORV area, pick a campsite and drop our stuff off, commence night wheelin' and drinking, everyone can head back to camp whenever they want, chill out/rest/camp and continue drinking, and then do a morning run to experience the trails in daylight (although, won't be as interesting as in the night).

Those are the hard trails. There are easier trails to do. Those are the trails Justin wants to go down since he is locked front and rear

YES! I GO THERE ALL THE TIME AND ALWAYS SEE 2WDs MOBBIN' AROUND. THERE ARE A LOT OF OUTER PARIMETER TRAILS TO HAVE FUN ON. THERE ARE ONLY 4 INNER TRAILS THAT WILL REQUIRE 4X4. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY COME OUT!!!

IM CURIOUS (OR MAYBE JUST CRAZY, LOL)... I WAS ALWAYS ABLE TO MAKE IT THROUGH BRONCO FLATS AND HALF WAY UP BRONCO PEAK (1 TIME) WHEN I HAD MY STOCK GEARS, NO LOCKER, AND JUST A BODY LIFT. NOW WITH BIGGER GEARS AND A REAR LOCKER, I MIGHT BE WILLING TO GIVE IT ANOTHER TRY (AS LONG AS IM WITH SOMEONE THAT COULD WINCH ME IF NEED BE)...FRONT LOCKER TO COME...VERY SOON!

...BUT NOT ON THIS TRIP... PLAN ON STICKING WITH THE GROUP!!!

IN OUR GROUP YOU AND ME WILL BE THE ONLY ONE'S THAT COULD GO THROUGH BRONCO FLATS (BLACK DIAMOND).

THERE IS ALSO A "BLUE SQUARE" (FORGET THE NAME) TRAIL THAT'S NOT THAT BAD AND IT MAY BE POSSIBLE FOR OUR 2WD BROTHERS TO MAKE (THERE ARE WAYS TO GET AROUND THE ROCKS ON THAT TRAIL).
