Las Cruces 11/9
 
I'm just gonna throw this out there and see how many people are interested before making any arrangements. The plan is to drive down Friday night, wheel all day Saturday and then come home on Sunday (11/8 - 11/10). If there is enough interest we might be able to get a group rate on a hotel, but the prices are pretty reasonable. Let me know if you are interested.

Bring your A game for Pats Revenge and Rocotillo (and to a lesser extent Tabasco), and spares. Tough trails. Expect damage.

Broad canyon is a pretty long drive from town. Too easy for my taste as well.

After watching all the videos I think I'll grecefully bow out. I did notice there were no JKs in any of them.

Contacted the La Quinta @ Organ Mountain, they do offer group rates of 5 or more rooms. The regular price for a standard room with 2 double beds or a king bed is $69 per. With the group rate it would be 62.

Yup, a-game for sure. Make sure some have winches, lots of protection, etc.

This is me on Tabasco Twister a handful of years ago at Chile Challenge

This is on Pats the following year (yes I made it and that line was on purpose)

I really wish we could take that 5th spot! We are going on vacation to Southern California a couple weeks after that (Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc) so we are going to have to catch you guys on the next one...

I am like Ken on this, but I might come down for the fun of it and ride along if someone has a seat open

I am currently scheduled to have my lift kit installed on this weekend, but If I can get it pushed to an earlier date I'll be able to roll with y'all.

We're talking NOVEMBER 9th . Unless you mechanic is really slow I would expect your jeep to be ready for next month ;-)

I learned at the Meet and Greet that there are more trails that are more to my style of wheeling so I am ready to do a bit of minot flexing. Don't have disconect links yet.

As A reminder, YES there is extreme stuff as seen in the pictures and videos. if you would like to tackle those we are glad to stop and watch. HOWEVER there is never any pressure from us to do those and there are go-arounds that any stock jeep can accomplish.

this is FAMILY FUN 4-Wheeling......
