Sounds good

Steve, what trails are you running(level), do you want to meet up and do blues and greens and maybe a blue-black or two, with bypasses.

Drink lots of OJ and water, keeping hydrated really helps you feel better. I'm an hour away, and its been pretty dry here since the last big snow. I doubt there's much snow. Its supposed to be clear up til Sunday, and Saturday its a high of 36. Not too bad, but no doors?

Anyway, is anyone trailering? Reason I ask is because my driver's side window is not working and I was wondering if I could leave my doors at someone's tow rig. If not I'll just throw them in the back.

Militaryman4455, You should not have to worry about rock rash. I've taken my stock YJ through the entirety of trail 13, which is a blue-black, and didn't scrape any body parts. I did carelessly run into a tree though. Driver's stupidity though.

Also, I have championed the use of letting the engine idle in first gear, which has proved to work very well. Btw, is yours an Unlimited or a 2-door?

As for air, they have an air tank on the side of the building, or we could just run down to the exxon station. All depends when we call it a day.



Brandon

EDIT: Militaryman, which way are you coming up? I-81?

I dunno which way im coming up. Im going to ellicott city to meet jsblu so which ever way he goes (as long as he doesnt puss out ) but if not them im just going the way that the Garmin takes me. I dont know this area so ill have to trust that if i cant follow him up. Im running a 2dr. And im not worried about air. a couple ppl have tanks and i figured that there would be one there too. probably will be calling it a night around dark cause i have to work at 7 the next morning. But if im having fun im sure ill just stay till ya'll are done. You think i could meet you somewhere if he bails?

Just checked the map and it looks like if i dont meet Jsblu then the best route would be 81 so thats probably what i would take up there.

Meeting up at 8:30am in the Rausch Creek Parking lot and should be wheeling by 9:30ish. If you want to add any extra contact info or your name to the list please do so.

It looks like the group may be big enough to split into two or more groups (group needs to be minimum 2 vehicles) if there is enough interest in both less challenging and more challenging trails

See you all there, I'll be hitting I-83 at 695 around 7 AM.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

I will get to I-81 at the 743 interchange (north of Hershey) at about 8 AM. Our paths don't really cross very much from what it looks like.

Also, I don't think Steve98 was joining the group, just letting us know he'll be there. So if he and his group do their own thing, we'll have a nice size group of six. If he decides to join us, we'll have nine or ten, probably too many for one group.

Militaryman, you could probably talk to BloodyRider. He's meeting close to your area. All you need to do to meet him is take Rt 40 to North 695, then catch the I 83 exit at 7 AM.

Add me as another maybe to the list - I'll know tomorrow whether I can make it or not. Black TJ on 33's, DD trail newbie though so I'll be pretty tame.

MilitaryMan, Jsblu, Boodyrider - if I can make it I'll be heading up from Baltimore city if you want to make it a caravan - maybe meet up somewhere around 83/695.

I am definitely coming and probably running with you guys, unless the group is to big. We just ended an exercise at work, and I'm not sure about the other two guys since they work nights (working tonight til ??????) but I'm hoping they still make it.

My cell is 318 299 9828, if anyone wants to text me or whatever. I'll hopefully be coming straight up 81 early. Getting there around 8 or so.


I will run greens, blues, purples, and some blacks.
