Default Trail Ride March 14th (Baldwin area)??? !! Update !!

OK here's the gig !!!

Saturday the 14th at 10:00 am. Meet behind the BP gas station on the southwest corner of M-37 and 76th a few miles south of Baldwin. There is a grocery store right next door where you can pick up lunch and trail goodies if you need. We will be leaving the parking lot at 10:30 for the trail.
This will be a stocker run with plenty of options to get yourself in deep if you so choose. Recovery points are highly recommended a winch and lockers would be a bonus. These trails can be somewhat tight so full size trucks and burbans would not be recommended. I run a CB on channel 4. If you dont have a CB make sure to bring an FRS radio with you if you can. I have a few extras if need to borrow one.
Dont know what the weather or the trails have in store for us at this time so come prepared. We will stop around 1:00 and have lunch on the trail. If anyone has a small grill they would like to bring it would help. Bring burgers, dogs or that 36oz T-bone if you like (maybe 3 grills). Dont forget your folding chairs.
We should wind things up and be back to the pavement by 4:00.

Grandcherokee and I will be running the trails on Friday afternoon (13th) to make sure everyone can get through. If your available, your welcome to tag along (pm me if you want to join us).

Please post a reply to the thread by next Wednesday if your planning to attend on Saturday. This way we will know if someone is running late.

See you next Saturday.

We will be running the Forest Service Trails. Will probably be lots of mud and water. May still have some snow pack remaining.
We will have liv2mx give us a trail update sometime next week.

Agreed. It's completely unmodified so it would be nice to bench mark it.
