Saran Wrap / Eagle Rock, Sunday 8/18
 
Alright, I can't run on Saturday but Sunday is a go for me. I'd like to meet in the Springs around 9am so we can potentially do Saran Wrap as well. I'm open to suggestions on a meeting point.

Eagle Rock was great last time but I've never run Saran Wrap. A guide would be awesome. Hope to see a bunch of you Sunday!

I'm in.

Every time I see this run I jump at it then talk myself out of it. Just worried that 33" and open diff with the boat loads of rain that area has gotten. I'm just worried I'd slow everyone down. Pretty sure I've got the clearance and flex to do it.

Colo-TJ 08-14-2013 10:16 AM

don't worry about slowing us down....we need the comic relief that you will bring.:rofl:

BrianTG 08-14-2013 10:21 AM

Oh look at this comedian.

Colo-TJ 08-14-2013 10:49 AM

It wold be good to see you if you can make it Brian. We can help through the rougher parts with some spotting.

Maybe I should just go with you guys and not on Saturday :-\ I also have open diffs but with 35s.

Lol I would go on Sunday with you guys but I have family coming in Saturday night. Thats the only reason I want to run on Saturdays

JeepandMud 08-14-2013 12:18 PM

I'm in on Sunday and yep, I'm on the bandwagon with needing help to spot as well :).

We'll both slow the group down :thumb:

Saran Wrap is lot harder than ER...with the rain the washouts are huge! Lockers although not necessary will keep the group moving verses winching constantly. I'm sure ER has changed significantly too with all the rain. I was up on Old Stage this past week scouting for ARchery Bear season and even the road has washed out areas. Just providing information take it for what it's worth...

C6Rubicon 08-14-2013 02:09 PM

This is one of those rare weekends where I'm busy both days. :(

Carlseanson 08-14-2013 02:18 PM

John, based on your intel, are you suggesting we stick to doing ER only? I don't want to get into a winching party situation on SW, so maybe that might be the best route to go. We got a stock 4dr. Sahara through ER last time with just some minor cosmetic "adjustments," but if it's washed out further that could make things interesting...

Colo-TJ 08-14-2013 02:33 PM

We are still in for whatever......

No not at all. Just providing information so everyone can make informed decisions whether to run the trail. this probably is Not a run for a Huge group or close to stock rigs. But of course everyone is welcome. An early start is a VERY good idea, maybe even 8-830 because by the time we meet get going then air down it could be 10 already then we still have to drive to trailhead. And as some learned last time we'll want to air down at the start of Old Stage ;)

If either trail is wet I would imagine even the most capable rigs may need to winch. We did get the stock Sahara through ER last time... So a possibility Could be for individuals with closer to stock rigs to ride along with someone on SW then pick their rigs before we start ER as the entrance to SW & ER are relatively close to each other... Just a thought and MHO.

SW is a lot of fun with some great challenges and personally if I'm going up to do ER I'm going to do SW too!

Carlseanson 08-14-2013 11:18 PM

John, can you suggest the best meeting point for the group? I hope you can make it for the run as it was great having you as a guide last time and much appreciated by all. I'm going to say we meet at 8:15 wherever we decide on. I have to be back in Denver around 5:30. I think Saran Wrap is still a go. Pumped for this run!

Hulk,
If you are looking to put together a Saturday run somewhere, I would be interested.

I would be interested in a Saturday run as well. Something not too difficult since I have to drive it to Utah Sunday morning.

This trail is sounding more and more fun.

Colo-TJ 08-15-2013 02:35 PM

It is a real fun trail...Getting pretty psyched.
should be a great day too.....Doors are coming off.....WOOHOO!!

Justin04Lj 08-15-2013 02:43 PM

Lucky you. I need some help getting mine off. Dont think they've ever been off. Tried by myself but felt like I was bending hinges.

wanderlust 08-15-2013 04:52 PM

I took mine off the first time in 13 years a few weeks ago with no problems. Doorless sounds like fun.
