The extreme trail is the Crushers. basically a valley of boulders. Nice big round rocks. No Moab Rim canyons here, we got trees to stop you :lol: .
It looks (feels) pretty good for me to be running a group if need be. I can either run the Archers or one similar to what I did last year.

Thanks Tom, I found it. On the attachment map it's under the Vicinity Map, below the trail 55 and 12.

Where's the sign up and/or how many rigs are scheduled?

Seems like there was a Yota on the extreme trip last year so I don't think there would be much of an issue if you tagged along. The only exclusion is for the "Bowl Picture" on Saturday. There was a trail last year that a one legged kid on a skate board would have had a tough time on so check with the group leader

Remember: While resorting to violence is never the answer, starting off with violence almost always is.

:redmad: Girl, you AINT talkin about those fingernail marks in my DASHBOARD are you? I'll take your girly little ass up that motorcycle trail again.

This is a picture of Juggy. He's not walkin away from that cliff, he's shakin the load out of his shorts. We just came up that little V in the rock to the left of him. :finger:

A 78/79 Bronco is no problem. For Jeeps, Toyotas etc. we "prefer" that they be sponsored as such by someone else that has a Bronco. I.E. If they have a friend with a Bronco going. If not then I don't mind letting them tag along as long as they are not knocking anyone else out to do so but they should contact me in advance (Either here or out there) rather than just assume they can tag along.

For the photo in the bowl you probably need to ask the organizers at the registration area. I know that for the registration itself they want to keep it to Early Bronco's only so they have an accurate count.

Can you see the trail on the little map?
TIA, Joe
Joe:
The extreme group as Tom mentioned is the Crusher loops. They are below trail 55 and 12. It's numbered 14r and is accessed from the top(Bottom on the map but top of the hill) section of Firebreak Five (Which is trail 14).

We are not doing a signup this year. I'm estimating the number based on the last 2 years and then added a nice cushion with a couple of extra leaders available if needed.

It's going to be up to you. If we have enough people show then breaking up into smaller groups of about 6 each takes some load off each leader and we can cover more ground that way. No pressure though as we can handle it either way.
