Fantasy draft is that day, otherwise I THINK I'd be able to make it. Jeep's almost ready to be on the road again!

I hope people are a little more generous on the donations this time. They said they had 200 some people in 2013 and raised $700? C'mon guys, we're better than that!

You are absolutely right, we do the breast cancer walk every year, just about 10 of us and raise well over $1200 within a couple months, I will give to a good cause anytime I can

I stand by corrected on the time. It is 9am-7pm per the flyer mentioned. The lady I spoke to said they were trying to get a "tour of green county" in that day too. Not sure on that yet. If some of u come from far, make the trip to the Tulip Trestle just Northeast of Bloomfield if u can. Really neat!

First time at Redbird , went on a couple easy trails with my stock rubi, seen some awesome rigs there, would like to go back and meet up with some people when not so crowded and do some wheeling

Right on Lee1207!!! I hope you had a good time. Did you see anyone tackle that "Telegraph Hill"? How were the trails? A lot of mud? A stock Ruby can handle a lot of stuff.

I would like to meet up back there and see what kind of trouble a I can get in!!!!

had a great time except for standing in the heat, there were some great prizes given away.
It was really muddy, Hopefully i can get before my lift and spacers before i go back and maybe try something different next time, my other problem is i have no winch yet either.

Yes, a winch would be really helpful on any wheeling trip. I don't have one yet either, but will someday. I think as long as 2 people in a group has one, everything should be alright though.

With a Rubi though, your axles are locked and you have disconnects and good ratio gears, and can do quite a bit. I have an almost stock 97 sport with open 3.07 gears and no disconnects. When I went there, I was able to handle quite a bit, but I was pretty confident since a few guys in my group had winches. I never had to use them, but we did have to pull out a full size GM truck out of some mud.

I will have to find some time to get another Sunday run together for this fall. Maybe sometime in late September.
