I'll be trailering mine up there.... can I just leave the truck and trailer at the gas station or should I find someone's house to drop at?

No major breakage this weekend, so it looks like it's ready to hit the trails!

P.S. Page 11!!!!!

The cargo has a large dirt lot to the north of it, should be fine leaving your tow rig there, its where the two trackers meet for the trail cleanup, and there is always a semi or two parked there when I went by.

I am not sure if there is a post about this already or not, but I was wondering if you needed an ORV sticker or not? I would like to know before I get up there and then have to find a place on a Saturday night to get one, which would probably be none, so I would just drive home lol.

It has started tonight, messing with wiring yet and will have to use the old harness and just splice together the few missing links.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm pretty sure that it will be fine there. It's dark and there isn't that much traffic by there that late at night......

Just park your truck outside in direct sunlight and it should be good to go in a couple of days with these 90 degree days we are having!

Question

I'd like to do this - what kind of terrain and what kind of shape is it in? wet? dry? rough?
I have tire options of 30x9.5 mostly bald mud terrain type, 29x8.5 1/2 worn swampers, on a grand cherokee that may or may not be 4wd by then
or... a set of skinny tires that look like motocross tires on a beater mustang that may or may not have a welded rear by then...

thoughts?

By now it should be nice and dry- but a little dusty.... Your ride will be fine out there. Anything that you don't want to do, you can bypass...

You can follow me up there if you want. I will probably be leaving my place around 8.

Just PM me if interested and I'll get moew details for you.

Cool, I'll have to evaluate the junk tonight and see what is the path of least resistance. I think I still have the Mustang lights around somewhere...
