Big bend shout out

Looking to see who's the Jeepers in the Alpine, Fort Davis, Marfa, Presidio, Marathon Texas area. How many us are out here, and what trails are y'all hitting?

There are numerous jeeps in the Alpine area as well as some that come in from other west Texas towns (as me).

Right now is the best time to be in the area as the temp get so high in the summer (then it is time to go to NM and Colorado).

There has been some development of jeep trails on the Lajitas Ranch/Resort, that is an on going process and access, rules (because it is a multi use property with hunting and firearm ranges), and trail development.

We are "scratching" the surface on trails in Big Bend Ranch State Park (BBRSP) which has limited use to off road vehicles as well. Bit of a learning curve there. We are also active in running in New Mexico and Colorado.

Attached is a small write up on a trip we did last month.

PM me with your email and I will let you know of any activities that we are doing (none at present just talk). Biotex, is a very active jeeper in Alpine and good guy (dont tell I said that) http://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/sssh.gif http://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/laugh2.gif and we have run numerous trips together. If you are over that way, he has the local furniture store, drop by for a visit.

I live in the next town over. Been meaning to get by there and talk to Biotex, Although that's not the name I know him by. Most of the guys here never really get out to go wheeling, they either can't or won't go. Now my Jeep is by no means a freak of nature rock crawling animal. But man I still get out there and at least try. Been wishing we could start a Jeep club/group/trail team but most aren't interested because they say their rigs not modified enough or "I don't want to damage it". Ya I understand, mine is my DD too. But come out and see, check it out you'll be really surprised. But I dont know I guess that just life?

Hey guys, Alpine here. I still have a relatively unmodified TJ Rubi and I take it out as much as possible. I think it would make it much easier if we were able to secure some land access near the three "cities" here. I know the little bit of wheeling I get I'm always worried that someone will construe it as trespassing and or destruction of public property . This last snow we had I had some fun crossing some frozen creeks and managed to bend in my license plate as I plowed off the overlying ice. Also the SAJE? comes down once a year and has a run north of Terlingua perhaps if a few of you are looking to get into some of the more serious rock crawling.

If anyone ever wants to get together im sure BIOTEX would host us if we ever wanted to get together for a "meeting"

I went to BBRSP last year. had a good time but we didnt hit the trails we wanted too at the time. we were limited on time.

a few of us are going back agian. JKOwners.com members TexasKEv, RubiCajun and I are planning another trip this year. so far we have 5 Jeeps for the first week of May. We will be doing mostly BBRSP but will go back to Big Bend National Park again.

little bit of pics and info from last years trip Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park Texas May 2010 I'll update it when we get the plans firmed up

I do plan on more extreme trails. I'm built for it but the other guys weren't at the time.

The temperature is getting warmer and soon it will be to hot (dangerous) to go wheel in this remote location

Bremen66, H2OJeep, and I wheeled the BBSP this weekend, and can tell you that it is a fun place. The only bad part of the trip is the road in/out. It is 27 miles of washboard and dust. Once you get past that, it is all good. The park is planning to open up a Northern entrance off of Casa Piedra road sometime soon, and that will cut out a lot of the time it takes just to get into the park.

Bring your own toilet, or at least tell them you have your own, or they will charge you to rent one.
