Hmmm, I won't be able to make it cause I already commited to goin to Goat with this group of friends. But if you can, snap a lot of pics so I can show them what its like and maybe we'll all plan a trip there. A couple of them live in Salem and Springfield so not far from them. How difficult are the trails? Most of them run 36-38 inch tires with front and rear lockers. Couple guys with crawl boxes and such, very capable rigs but love to play on most anything.

No need for PM, here it is.

I'm assuming this is a legal wheeling location.

probably sat the 31st. some real difficult some not that bad at all. Some stockers can make some you need a fairly serious rig
