From my knowledge, the trip is planned for December 27, 28 and 29th... Which is Tuesday - Thursday.

I am going to go up real early on Wednesday, since my friends will not be in town early enough.

Justa guess, but maybe a Defender :-) or some other Land Rover

Whatcha Drivin' ?

Are these rovers four wheel drive?
But seriouslly, I just didn't want to show up riding with a bunch of locked and loaded D-90's on 35's heading for Guard Rail. Kinda like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

My guess is that there will be all types of trucks there... Some will be stock, some will have some modifications and a couple will be monsters. I am interested in having fun, running some trails and meeting some of the guys on this board. I do not know very many of the guys, so I am not sure what everyone’s expectations are or what their trucks are like.

Guard Rail, Helicopter Pad and School Bus are tough, I got a small dent last time I was there and a few series trucks rolled. It was a tough day.



We still need to decide where we are going to meet... Cell phones do not work, except on the higher peaks.

So, who's in???

I figure we should attempt finalize some group plans .....

I will arrive at Tellico (coming from Boone) Monday evening, Dec 26, around 6pm (maybe earlier) with at least 1 other guy. Unless someone has a better idea, lets camp at State Line Campground. I'll get the biggest site available and attempt to keep neighbor sites open. No reservations, but I can't imagine there being a lot of comp for sites the week after Christmas.

I can only hit the trails Tuesday and Wednesday before having to head out Weds night.

Does anyone want to wheel Tuesday? Is anyone going to be around early enough to wheel on Tuesday? Post up what time and lets get a tentative 'departure' time set.

What trails does everyone want to run? I have wheeled there several times over the years and am up for anything. I'd like to have a go at lower 2, especially if its dry. I'm open to anything else (though, I'll take the bypass on Heli pad ).

... there will be at least one vehicle there that is not a Land Rover since I sold the D90 and bought a Jeep. That said, I posted up on the Jeep Rubicon Owners Forum (think d-90.com for Jeep Rubicon owners) and 3 or 4 people there expressed interest.... just like on this forum; it sounds like there will be people from varying experience and equipment levels. So, I'm sure we can pull something together for everyone.

Looking forward to it....

Troy

Yes... I am trailering my 90, since I have broken it the last two times I've been there.

What color Jeep are you driving? I want to make sure wake up the wrong crowd.

... a friend of mine and I bailed late last night. We wheeled yesterday with a bunch of Rubicon guys. But, (& maybe I just got too spoiled west coast wheeling the past few years! ), it was just too muddy for my taste. Wold90 ... I left you a voicemail msg on your cell last night with the update.

Hopefully, we can plan a 'drought trip' in the not to distant future.
