'14 Chile Challenge

I'd like to just throw this out there and see if anyone is interested. The '13 Chile Challenge was this past February, and was held on a Wed-Sat type of schedule. They have trail rides available from stock capable up to what they call extreme. I think their extreme classification is for serious buggys. From what I can gather so far, it's loosely being planned for the weekend after Columbus day, so that's around October 18th, 2014.

These are some of the best trails in the country and I think it would be fun to go down there and help them keep their trails open. If y'all are interested let me know and I'll send them an email to let them know we have approximately X number of Jeeps interested in attending. Here is the link to their website, on the homepage there is a link to the challenge website. Look at the challenge website and check out their rules/required equipment etc. and see if it's something you would be interested in. They are very particular about their rules because this event gets a lot of attention and the BLM has a very large presence.

Lemme know...

They are moving the dates to October next year? Weird. It's always been in February.

It is a great time and the las cruces four wheel drive club does a phenomenal job putting it on. The dinner and raffle is great.

From their calendar:

As a preview event for the 2014 Chile Challenge, which will be held the week following Columbus Day 2014, we will have an overnight camp-out event, including bonfire, potluck dinner, and trails after DIY breakfast in the morning.

Maybe they made a typo, but sounds like the week following Columbus day 2014. I will send an email tonight to verify.
