I am very interested. But I am a total newbie. And my insurance doesn't cover it so I am thinking of taking on very easy trail to start with. Is that cool? If that's not your plan for this weekend, then I'll join whenever you guys have a easy trail trip.

We will only be doing green trail because there is another stock guy coming along as well. Possibly a blue if everyone is comfortable with it.

Jason are there bypasses on the harder trails if one wants to avoid a particular obstacle?

Honestly it depends on the trail. Its not super crazy or anything. I took mine on it stock. Actually I got about 100 yards down a black red trail before I realized I was on the wrong trail.

I think Dennis should come along. They have a billion mud holes for him to fly through haha

Can't go that weekend, that's our annual Jeep show and car crush for Nova Jeepers, so I'm booked. You guys/gals have fun if you go.

Just to let everyone know, primitive camping is free for members. You have to call and reserve it though. For non-members you could try calling and paying the $15 member fee that you will pay anyway saturday. Let me know if your interested in coming as soon as possible. I am going to call tomorrow and see if they have any spots available so we can drive up friday evening.

Mr Wilson, you need to go with us one of these days. I like the idea of confusing people with another gecko.

Yes, yes I do. If you guys still do Peter's Mill the following weekend (25th) I think I'm going to be around.

I can't make it this weekend...already on a camping trip at the Cove but something for the rest of you to work with...

While you guys are up there you should "check in" for the Jeep Badge of Honor.
Badge of Honor | Off Road Trails, Jeep Life, Trail Badge | Jeep

I've been to Rausch Creek before they had this program, so I have to make it back to get in on this. GLHF.

So Jason tells me there are 3 options.


- camp. Free, but on a first come basis
- motel
- drive up at 5 am

What do you all plan on doing? I'm open to any option.

I plan on driving up friday evening. If they don't have camp sites available then I will just sleep in the jeep.

I like the idea of waking up fresh, but primitive camping, usually gets me no sleep and a sore back.

I might Dan. I'm working Friday and not sure when I'm done. Also not sure when the Friday convoy is meeting up and departing. I'm going to try and go with them, but no guarantees.

Really want to camp, but only have a sleeping bag and tarp. weather looks good enough to sleep outside, which is fine by me! I can bring food, too...

I thought you were driving up with me friday night?

For Quietspike;
I have a tent but its only a 2 person tent. I was thinking about just folding down my rear seats and making my bed inside.
