Not exactly, I'm pretty sure how you'll drive if I happen to let you in that side of the Bronco.

From the Forest Service. Shouldn't affect us, but....

Cedar Creek Road at Jones Creek will be closed approximately from 8-13-07 to 8-27-07 due to bridge replacement.

So how long is the extreme trail and what type of obstacles are likely to be encountered? My wife isn't a big fan of the "fall to your death" type trails (i. e. Moab Rim), but can handle extreme as long as serious off camber and falls aren't involved.

Can you see the trail on the little map?
TIA, Joe

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

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.

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.
