Oberst Hajj Steve, i was wondering if you made that trip. Shooting you a PM.
06-03-2013 09:56 AM
SETI1x Thanx Keith. It took 3 days to get all the dirt/dust out of the Jeep but it was worth it. I liked batting clean up and taking up the rear. I did make a trip up Rainbow Falls and Rule Ridge last Friday. Some challenging parts but otherwise nice. 5-6 hour tour. Really windy to start on Rule Ridge through the Haymen fire scar.

Oberst Hajj Welcome to the little Family Group Josh.
05-04-2013 10:12 PM
JoshCOS Definitely interested in some family runs as well. Daughter is 9, twin boys are almost 7. They all love being out in the Jeep, and more kids just adds to it. I'm in Springs, have been lurking in WF for 6 months but just registered. Saturdays are currently busy with soccer but that'll be over soon, and when school's out we'll be up for weekday runs as well. Looking forward to joining on some group runs. Missed the big group to Illinois Gulch a few weeks back but went the day after. Loved Moab Hill!

jagerhelix Wife is taking care of a few things Sunday so her and the baby will not be attending, but I'll be running China Wall with either both of my boys (2 1/2 and 4 1/2), or my older boy and a neighbor friend (5). It's a a pretty fun trail with bypasses for all obstacles but one, but is still passable with a stock jeep without difficulty.

Oberst Hajj We might be up for something on Sunday as well. Our family got some very bad news yesterday, so we'll just have to see how everyone is feeling in a few days.

But we really want to get out there with other families. I was actually looking to plan a trip for Sunday the 19th. Do 3-4 of easy trails on a loop from Castle Rock to either Monument or Woodland Park (if the Parker/Denver groups were up for that distance), all off of Rampart Range Rd.

Let me know. Sunday day trips are the best day for us.
05-01-2013 01:14 AM
BrianTG Well I'm by no means in. Still gotta talk her into it.

By all means. I'll try to come up with something solid by tomorrow as kind of a family run.

vince.parker25 Here are some more pictures of our yj.

vince.parker25 So I am new to wheeling. Me, the one posting is actually 15 and me and my dad are working on building up our 92 yj. We went pretty big on the project but as far as wheeling experience we haven't done much in the past few years. We have only taken trails capable by our Yukon Denali and our excursion recently. There is a pretty Big mod list on our yj. With a few more to come. Any ideas on some good trails to get a feel for some people looking on getting into some harder stuff. We are in pueblo and I know most of you guys are up in denver and the sorts. Mostly it would probably be my dad me (15) and my little brother (12).

Codysrubicon I know one trail our family will do every year is tincup pass. We like to take our flat lander family members up to mirror lake and eat at frenchees restaurant in tincup. It's actually a good mix of easy to medium trails and between fishing and sightseeing you can make a day of it.

Jeep65 i'm a newbie to wheeling. only been out twice so far. so most likely i would be following people until i get to know the trails. i went with a big group down to moab hill. i liked that one because you could avoid most of the challenging obstacles if you didin't want to do them. plus there was a great mix of newbies and experienced wheelers.
04-30-2013 03:45 PM
Gellato Great! I'm rolling in an Orange 2006 Rubi.
Looks like Rampart seasonal gates might open soon.
Yahoo! Groups

Nice easy trail with connections to medium difficulty trails. Forest Service also might open the lower section (fire closure) in June so you can take the scenic route to Co. Springs.
04-30-2013 03:26 PM
Jeep65 I've got a 6yr old girl and want to get her out on the trails also. i would love to hook up with some family jeepers. i'm from parker. i've got a 2012 JK Rubicon

Oberst Hajj Gellato, boys, girls, or mixed?
04-30-2013 02:52 PM
Gellato Sounds good.
04-30-2013 02:20 PM
Oberst Hajj jagerhelix, we live in the Springs as well. We’ll have to meet up sometime and introduce the families… maybe grab ice cream and talk about a family outing.

Gellato, Sundays are pretty open for us. The girls (9 & 11) are with their dad every other weekend. Parker is not too far off, my youngest step-daughter does Karate tourneys up there during the summer months. If you guys plan an outing, let us know and we’ll do the same.
04-30-2013 01:59 PM
Gellato I'm looking to get out with the family on Sunday day trips. My kids (6 & 11) do sports all day Saturday. I'm in Parker.

Duckquackers I have three kids as well, 13 10 and 3 its usually the 3y/o that is the most excited to go play in the mud. The group i go with usually has the kids with them and we do bbq and have the 4wheelers and stuff out as well. Find a great group and enjoy, with the 4 doors it is a million times easier to allow everyone a little Jeep love.

jagerhelix Oberst, I'm in the springs.
Jason, took my littlest one for the first time last weekend. He is four months old. with him, everything is very slow. I didn't hit harder trails with my middle boy until he was about two.
