Rausch Creek questions.

Hey guys, i'm going to Rausch Creek tomorrow and im just wondering what all i should have or bring.

As of now, i have a spare tire(not full size but i cant find anyone around me with an extra 33in tire.), i have three recovery points(two up front and one in the back ), i have a tow strap, two extra D-rings, a working CB, i just topped of my coolent yesterday, and i have sunglasses.

What else do i need, should do, and should have?

I did talk to a lady at the park and she told me the spare doesnt have to be full size as long as i have a spare by the way, i know it sucks balls not haveing the ful size spare but literally no one i know has 33s, its either stock or 35s. lol

Thanks in advance.

Well you will need at least one other person to go with you.

If you're under 18 yes your parents have to sign the waiver. Go to the site and print it out, have them sign it before you go.

A few things to bring, tools, spare parts(axle shafts, if you have a dana 35 rear, u joints) water, a floor jack or high lift, a piece of plywood for under the jack, tow strap, more spare parts, wd40(works good on getting water out of electrical compoments. Make sure you have a spark plug socket, after you go through lake cristie you will need to pull the plugs and turn the engine over to get the water out of the cylinders. I normally take an extra air filter along incase it gets wet. Remember any mudhole with a name is deep, make sure you have your waders on.

Yeah, it was really fun. Ill post pictures when i get them, i have a few in my build, you can see in my sig but nothing to big. I just did the greens, some blues , and some but very little blacks. But i didnt do most of the bypasses, and tested everything out.

And no i didnt go through the frog hole or the other hole in the pole lines.

But im already looking forward to going up again soon.
