Well by all means I do not plan to wheel the Excursion up there. The Sami should be ready in time. If, and only if it is not, I will still come up and do some on-road exploring/helping out around camp.

I understand the worry (and dare I say hate?) for fullsize rigs, however I do feel events like these should take them into consideration as well. Jeeps themselves are getting bigger with each generation, and besides the Wrangler, the only U.S. built solid axle vehicles anymore are fullsize trucks. I am seeing a trend of people building bigger rigs, expo rigs, camping type rigs etc. and feel it will only grow.

Now I'm not saying we need to fire up the chainsaws and widen the trails, but instead find some appropriate routes for maybe one or two fullsize runs instead of planning to exclude them alltogether from big events like this.
