The Only way I do it, is in a tent-cot in the canyon. Once we arrive, we don't leave until we're going home. No civilization for us. We love it that way. The directions to camp are on the first post. Are you planning on camping with us? That's half the fun!! Especially when we night run!

Some of my friends have an RV but most pitch a tent. Please bring some wood with you! Nights are chilly in Calico in March.

I'm all about the tent. But the wife well that's a different story, both our boys were scouts so tent camping was a monthly event for years, she kinda needs a brake from tents. Oh and I will bring some fire wood.

Understandable..well, whatever you decide, there's room. It's an open canyon. You park or pitch what you have wherever you want.

Do you have any sort of rocker protection? Stock? I'm not going to promise you that you won't have damage..but with your lift and 33's, you're better off than some I've taken through Calico in the past. It is Always a risk at Calico..even if your lifted, 35's, armor and sliders. If it were me, I'd probably go. You have to be one of those people who actually watch and listen to your spotter and the person in front of you. You'll probably be fine...but again, it's always a risk. Your call. It comes down to You. You know Your capabilities. Did that help ?

I have taken many through there; some with 31's. There's always a risk. The good thing about it is if you need help, there's going to be plenty. Plenty of straps and winches. I think if your mindful and pay attention, you'll be fine.

You may need a tug on the waterfalls, but no big deal. We tug somebody every time. Try to get you rockers..I got Rock Hard for $300 and they look really good. Put them to the test in JV last Monday

I'll make sure to put you behind either myself or someone else who knows the lines. You have a CB?
