|bmlbrewer||Lol. What did you do? The first trail I ever ran in my Jeep was Eagle Rock. I had to turn back halfway because I didn't have lockers and I couldn't make it any farther.|
|05-24-2013 01:36 AM|
But honestly the trail is easy especially if your modded

|wanderlust||My little group tends towards the much harder stuff but is also always a family affair. We jump in on some other trail runs from time to time. Hope to see you on the trails this year. My knowledge is your knowledge, same with my whole group.|

The family enjoys the trips with other families more than just going out solo or with another Jeep, so it is going to take more time to get the needed experience.

My first run in my stock TJ was China Wall, without doing the "wall". Justin and the group I was with really helped me out as a newbie. The people who have been on this forum are the best people you will ever meet.
I have run Slaughterhouse a few times as well with my granddaughter who literally laughed the whole time... It was awesome!
There are bypasses for the obstacles on both of those runs as well.
Welcome to the family

|wanderlust||I have seen a 2013 JKUR pushed as hard and far as can be done. You would be completely amazed. Full family truck load as well. It comes down to the comfort level of the driver and riders. SFrubicons daughters grew up wheeling and enjoy the "fun stuff" as much as any of us.|

|Justin04Lj||Yeah youre definitely new.|
|05-23-2013 12:28 AM|
|bmlbrewer||I'm down for whatever. I don't care. I just thought it was awesome being 1 of a 13 Jeep group, spending the day in the mountains, and meeting new people. I'll leave the decision up to the people who have kids. I'll come and join for anything, red, blue, or green. I was just saying I'm not sure how many people would want to take their kids and/or new Jeeps on a red trail. If I'm wrong, awesome. In that case, lets go crawling!|

My wife and I and my two boys had a great time Sunday. It was really nice meeting everyone and hope to do this again.
China wall was the first trail that we went on. Here are a couple of videos from that trip.

My Jeep was stock. No lift and I was only running 32" tires.

|Justin04Lj||Ok guess a harder trail got ignored enough that ill post one up. I like rocks not just dirt roads.|
|05-22-2013 12:43 AM|
|bmlbrewer||I like the sound of the second one, more time on the trails, rather than spending all day driving to one trail. Plus, i think everyone's Jeep could handle a 3-4. Especially the guys that climbed the last rock. Which since the stock rubi did it, and two of us managed to do it without lockers, we should all be fine. Lol|

I can put one together for the later part of June. Both of the runs I'm looking at are more of a "destination" run, so not as close by as this last one.
I'm still working out the details, but...
Trip A would be a pretty long drive, do a single long trail (rated 2-3, so like what we just did difficulty wise) and then the return trip home. A very full day of driving... but with great options for anyone wanting to stay the night/camp at the "destination".
Trip B would be a little less driving to get to the destination, and we would have 6 trails all right in the same area to run on. Most are rated a 3 (tougher end of what we just did), one going up to a 4 and another up to a 5 if you do all the obstacles. Again, the "destination" would offer great opportunities for anyone wanting to stay over night or go camping.
Give me a day or so to work it out and I'll start a new thread with all the details and photos/maps. I'll run a poll in the new thread for us to decide as a group which trip we want to do.

|Justin04Lj||Harder trail? :-)|
|05-21-2013 08:09 PM|
|bmlbrewer||So I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering, but I'll be the one to ask... When's the next one?|

It an iPhone app, MotionX GPS. The features are pretty cool, but it has a few drawbacks depending on how you want to use it. It's limited on the types of maps you can download and store in your phone (no Google maps), if you have not downloaded one of their maps and you lose cell signal, you get no map data, there is no easy way to share your "track" (as they call them) with people that do not also have the app. You can email it to people directly from the app, but they don't get all the cool charts and the map is only good for 6 months and then it is removed. There is also a Facebook share function, but it does not post anything to your actual FB wall, it put it on the apps special FB page and sends a link to all your FB friends.
I was really hoping it could post all the charts and info right to a FB wall so that I could start a FB page for all the trips we do as a group and just publish them there. Oh well, with a little Photoshop work it can be done.

I also did a GPS Track record of our trip. I paused the time when we stopped and got out of the Jeeps (expect at the very end, I forgot then ) So, the time show (minus about 30 mins at the end) is just for the driving portion.
On this one, I did not Photoshop all the images together to show the entire trip's speeds. I can if anyone is interested.
That last image is pretty neat if you open it up to see the full size. It shows our elevation changes through out the trip averaged every 3 minutes.

And some more...

Lots of pics...
