Kixx! When you get hotel info, lemme know. I'd have to take a weekend off for this, but it sounds well worth it!

You still got your XJ dude?

I'll be bringing my '83 waggie, 34" ltb's and 115hp!!! Woo! If I want it to go fast, I gotta drop it off a cliff...

Well...I guess I'm new to this run, but not to jeeping, or organizing get togethers. I was active in the old forum, and had lots of fun. I try to not get stuck, lets say, lol.

Ya know, I don't really care if I do crazy hard trails, or medium trails, my kids will have a blast! they like to be the last jeep in line, so they can watch everyone else get stuck before we make it through, lol. Looking forward to it.

For those of you who aren't familiar with West Branch (where it's held for those who missed it the first 6 times) the trails themselves are all pretty much the same. What is going to make them difficult is going to be the snow level. Some trails will have more hills than others, and some trails will be already broke, while others will all be fresh powder. Last year, the snow was deep and pretty much everyone had some trouble except for the guys with huge tires.

And Paul, you were also winched. Let's not forget that. lol

Well I need to get working on fixing the flatties oil pan, and maybe a locker or something to be ready. I can't wait I hope work doesn't send me away that weekend

I might want to tweak my steering too.

Depends on which run you get on. With that setup and being newer to wheeling I would consult a trail guide before you sign on.

I ran 34's open/open last year and only took 2 straps, where others winched.... but I have a heavy foot and my rig isn't normal That can be good or bad.

You're right... I used to wheel but now it just seems I act as a tow truck pulling your stuck ass from snowbanks, tank traps, etc etc. That's really not considered wheeling I suppose!

Easy with the arguing girls. One of you has a rig that hasn't been run in month, the other has a rig that breaks every time its put in gear, and thinks more and more welding will fix it. lol

I'm leaving "topless" honors all to you this year. I'm getting too old for frostbite and furry hats I'm either buying a top or taking the CJ8.

I thought that, as we gracefully age, we grow into thinking that fuzzy hats are stylish?! I've owned one for years, knowing that one day, I just won't care anymore, and I'll wear it to Walmart...

You would fit in at Walmart wearing that hat any time of the year.
