Darkfire The Trip was some of the best offroading and trails in the state, broke a few parts, popped a couple of tires and everyone had a fabulous time!

NMBruce This is just not working out for me, would love to hang out with you guys and do some trails, but time & money are saying no. Got other things going on the weekend before & after and need a recovery $ weekend.

I guess i will be asking for one..... but why? And pfffffffft i still have a lot to learn lol

Darkfire I want to thank everyone for their concern with the logistics of this trip. To keep any other distress and concerns about this adventure to a minimum, as with all of our group planned trips a lot of planning has gone into this trip. The main planner has been on these trails, we have been in contact with the president and staff of the Chllie Challenge about coordination, logistics and additional trail support! At this time we are working out details of how many of thier trail leaders are available to come out both days with us for additional knowledge and fun.

As with our other trips this is a family jeeping event, we are looking to have fun, not destroy our rigs, and provide skill options for everyone attending.

BigJK Might I suggest contacting someone with the Las Cruces 4wd club? Some of the trails down there are hard to find/find your way home from. You might find someone to lead you around.

I missed the "pay" part. You don't need to pay to ride with us. You just have to be good people. Liking beer helps too.
