Nov. 25 TSF Run

Looking to do a run sunday Nov. 25th. This will be an advance run, a long run, and open to any Jeep. Planning on all of Archers (Trail 28), down Airplane Hill (16b), Upper Crusher, Firebreak 5(14). Then powerlines back to Rodgers Day use area.

To decrease the amount of down time 35's min.
Rules:
1) You must air down to a min 12. There's no reason you can't run 7-8 on a 35 or bigger tire. Dont want to air down thats fine but I will sit there drinking my coffee and watch you beat your jeep trying to up trail. I always have my air system and will gladly fill your tires if you do not have one. Airing down is the best way to gain traction.

2) Stay as a group no one wonders off. If your stuck or broke down the whole group stops unless one person is sent out for parts. Before the run begins I will state the route and tails we will be taking. If you have CB channel 22 is the normal unless other wise stated.

3) Only one person spotting. Driver doesn't need 10 people telling him/her different things to do.

4) Im easy on the skinny pedal if you are not and like to Baja up the trail and you break something. Ill be there drinking my coffee watching you fix it.

Since this will be a longer run normal we will meet at Gales Creek Shell station on hwy 6 @ 0800. Leave at 0830 for Jordan Creek.

Jeep hard, Jeep safe!

x2 on airing down. Big rocks aside, I am usually able to keep up with locked rigs on 35's and I drive on 33x10.5 tires. I am usually aired down within a range of 10-12 psi and I think the traction that I get from this pressure range makes people think that I'm locked when I'm not (I run dual LSD TrueTracs).

Airing down is not 20psi .

I might make this one. My father-in-law will be in town for the holiday, and I may take him out to show him TSF.

Remember 35's+ are recommended for this run. Trails listed a single to tripple black dimonds. This will be a no BS run. I'm not stopping to, chat, spot, winch, or repair Jeeps. Ill be going at a fast pace to cover almost all tails from Jordan Creek to Rodgers day use area.

Thanks Banks....I am not looking to run the Baja 500 through the woods.

I'll catch the next (more relaxed) run!

your pace isn't that slow, or fast, you just don't wanna stand around and wait thats all. or stop to talk about every bump and puddle you crossed. get more trails done that way
