Come on out! There will be plenty of people willing to help you out if you get stuck. Like choppergar said, most of the main trails will be packed down. Just run like 10-12psi in your tires to flatten them out and help with traction.
You said you were pretty much stock so I assume no recovery points? Id suggest having at least one solid point on front and rear to pull on in case you need to be pulled out.

We are going to try to come up if I can get the day off. Is it like a potluck with homemade chili? Sounds fun!

I'm taking the day off for this. My Jeep is pretty stock. We can be stuck together.

As long as you guys have tow points the snow is a good place for stockers to have big fun. :D

It's like a pot luck. Some bring chili, Shawn brings his own speciality... I bring a cake for birthday peoples. Last year Ron made a fire and it was so nice. :D

Unfortunately, I can't make this one. I have a prior obligation on that day that I cannot miss. Had a great time last year though!

I'm still planning on it.
I have to remove my hard top and put on the soft top but other than stretching it in F'in cold there shouldn't be a problem.
