Hello, I am hoping someday, seems like it is taking forever to be built.
After it arrives I will be up for some exploring around here.

Pretty much the same here... Wheels, tires, 4" lift, rock guards, fenders, and front bumper going on within the next month and a half or so. PM me whenever your Jeep and some free time! I've been out to Red Rock Canyon a few times with just my stock JKU and it did great!

Hows it going? I work on Nellis as a civil service employee. Just bought my first Jeep about a month ago. So far I have been out to Burro Wash and one other trail off of 95 N. Can't think of the name off hand. Burro Wash was alot of fun, plus it ends at the Colorado River...pretty cool! I guess to answer your question, yes looking for some wheeling buddies!

What day and trail are you looking to do? I will be up that way Fri/Sat as we are hiking the north and south loop of Charleston.

Bitter springs sounds like a cool run. Never done it before. It's too bad that I have prior commitments. How often do you guys go on runs? What difficulty level?

Never did Bitter Springs although it seems like a basic 23 mile dirt trail. I'm looking to do potato ridge 25 August if anyones interested.

Damn I would totally go if I wasn't camping with some friends that weekend. I've only did potato ridge once and I really enjoyed it. Me and a bunch of buddies are doing Copper Cache saturday morning if any of you folks want to join, you're more than welcome. Pm me if you want to go.

I'm ready to try the back way into Red Rocks from Lowell, maybe not by myself...

NOW let me research the previous posts and maybe zero in on one...

There is a run tonight doing Potato Ridge (back side of Red Rock) if you are interested . Check out the link on the bottom of this post, then go to future runs .

"Potato Ridge" Sounds GREAT, but I'm in SoCal this weekend. Doggone.

Kinda hot still, isn't it? Talking early morning run sometime?

Do you guys air down as soon as you get off the asphalt or wait until the end of 2wd trail?

It's only a long half day or so, isn't it?

No problem, there's always someone wanting to go wheelin. We have people who have weekdays off and also people who have weekends off, so theres always someone down to meet up.

As for airing down, we'll drive to the trail head and air down there or, depending on the terrain, somewhere that if flat and big enough for the rigs a little before the trail head.

The amount of time it will take depends on the size of the group, washes taken and problems entered on the trail, if any, but for the most part a half day is about right.

Cool! Hopefully you can fix the problem and maybe make it out either tonight (if you want to do a night run) or saturday around 10am. The run tonight can be as difficult as you want it or as easy as you want it (taking the bypasses). The Saturday run (Copper Cache) can be a little more challenging with some waterfalls to climb. Depending on how comfortable you are and how far you're willing to push your rig, we can get you through it. We've taken a stock sahara through, with some winch assistance, safely. Again, all depends on what you're comfortable with.

Matt, great run yesterday! Glad you and your girl made it out. We should try to get more jeeps from Nellis on some runs with us.

If you ever want to find out when the next run will be, check out the link below, go to general discussion, then future runs. Also if you would like, you can register then you would be able to post some of the pics you have on the picture thread.

Well it was definitely great meeting you and your girl and also wheelin with you. Looking forward to wheelin with you again.
