Nice! I wanted to keep going on new parts of Archers. You feeling rocky uphill again? If possible, I'd like to do all of Archers.

Rocky Uphill is tore up worse than the last time we were out there Robert. I had a hard time getting through it on this last Saturday, but I made it....

I wish I could have gone last weekend Chad but I couldnt get permission Did you go up the right or left?

I told her I am going this weekend with or without her! But I will be taking the bypass to the left on Rocky Uphill. My skid plates took a beating last time. I think I lost half a gallon of gas tank capacity...

It was a good time last weekend... I took the left and struggled pretty good trying to get through it. The right looked even worse! lol

So....my buddy ended up bailing on me.

Sunday might be good, but I need to check with Melanie to make sure she doesn't have anything planned.

It didn't seem like a lot of people were heading out on Sat anyway (sorry, Cold).

I could probably do Saturday. Running stock JKU Rubicon and have never done TSF but eager to give it a go.

Would appreciate being able to tag along with some more experienced jeepers to help me stay out of trouble.

I am thinking about heading out to TSF Saturday morning. Alone or with someone makes no difference to me. I just want to hit some moderate trails to relieve some stress. Maybe fb5 for giggles. Up if its dry, down if its wet . Ill save Archers for a group run.

So if Eweasel wants to join me I can show him around. I ran these trails many times alone in my stock rubicon without much drama so I am sure we'd be fine

Robert

Alright, let's do TSF tomorrow!

Robert - I might hit up the quarry (the big one you drive by on your way to FB5) first....would you guys want to meet me there? I'd like to be there early before the banjo-playin crazies come out with their militias.

I might be there at 9.....think you'd be rolling through 10-1030?

Well if we meet at McDonalds starting at 9am and roll out around 0930 it will put us passing the quarry around that time Scott.

You should be fine as long as you have tow hooks. There's only a couple spots that getting up might be hard if you have open diff's and small tires.
