Black Friday / Satruday CALICO!

Hey dudes. Couple of us are going out to Calico after Thanksgiving for some fun on Odessa and Doran. Anybody is welcome to come along!
Recommend 33s, armor and driving skill!

Saturday is guaranteed, and we're still working out who's going to be camping Friday night or more.

Who's going?

I'll be camping at least Friday, Sat, and leave on Sunday morning. I may even go out there on Thursday and use that day to scout a new trail on the west side of calico.

Talked to Calico and they said there will be plenty of spots inside the campground. No hook up sites are left and it's to late to reserve spots but they told me even if all the spots were taken they'd find us our own spot. They have a large overflow up on the hill by the grave yard.

Sounds good. As of now, I'm planning on getting there Friday morning and leaving Saturday night. I like camping on the other side of the hill though as opposed to in the campground, but I'm down for whatever.

Either way, was just thinking of facilities for the ladies, and I'm not sure what shape Mule Canyon Rd will be in with all the rain we got out there. I think it rained for a full week out there. Just worried about taking my trailer up a washed out road. I can check it when I get there.

We were there last weekend and it was not bad, but it has changed after 4 days of rain so it should be fun!

I'm already going to be out there with my friends family. We'll probably be camping in the normal spot

I think that's the plan, either that or we'll be in the campground. We're leaving Wednesday night and staying through Sunday I believe. We're bringing the RV and towing both Jeeps with the Dually. Chances are we'll be doing gatekeeper as well.

I'm locked in the rear now with 4.88s, so there's a chance I can. My friend definitely can.

Your jeep is very similar to mine and there is no way I would even think of trying the gatekeeper without a front locker. Just my personal opinion. If you do go at it let me know how it goes!

Nice. It's completely locked right? Are you going to do the front too?

It's doable. I'm trailering so there's no way I won't try it. My friend will definitely do it considering his Jeeps done the hammers.

Yah, I have a spool in the rear. Eventually I want to put an Eaton electronic selectable in the front.

Nice Brett! We'll swing by your camp Friday morning to see about a run! I think you might be able to do gatekeeper, but it'll take a while... I saw a YJ do it once with a detroit in the rear and limited slip up front. See you Friday night Rrampley! It'll either be Doran, Odessa or Mule Canyon, or two of the three!

You cool with up Odessa through wallstreet and down doran for Saturday?? Selfishly I haven't done that loop.

Oh boy I'm getting excited now. I don't care what trails we do as long as I'm wheeling and eating leftover thanksgiving food I'm stoked.

Been getting the RV ready, having it washed right now. Tomorrow I'll hit the grocery store and clean the jeep up. That last puddle I hit in Holcomb really muddled the jeep up.

Quick question tho. What time will the night run be on Friday if you do plan one? Thinking of leaving around 3-4pm from my place.

I expect to be there Friday at that time. So depending on when you actually get there 5-6 that should be good. I assume then you'll stay the night? We can help you get set up prior to the run if need be.
