I have a REI near me. When I go in there, will they know what I'm talking about when I ask for the Adventure Pass? Do I need it for a specific area or date? (Sorry for the newbie questions, but I think I'm not the only one!!)

Yup, they should. I've only had one check out counter person who didn't know about them. They asked someone else and were quickly shown where to get them (from somewhere behind the counter).

The passes are good for a year. You can Google forest adventure pass and get more info.

Here's link to a Wiki entry that describes them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa...Adventure_Pass

I've got my own question. I'm thinking of purchasing a winch and bumper. I like the Warn Powerplant because it's a two bird/one stone solution, but is sure is big.

Doing some more homework in looking for bumpers, the Shrockworks mid length bumper seems pretty decent because it mounts the winch nice and low, but the delivery time is out to like three months now.

Any other suggestions?

And also, I'm curious about how often you guys end up needing a winch anyway?

If my jeeping turns out to be anything like my motorcyle riding, half the time I end up riding alone in fairly remote areas. It's pretty hard to get my trials bike stuck and mostly my worries are a mechanical failure or injury preventing me from getting out. So I have a Spot tracker to help with that.

While I've been riding bikes for a long time and generally know what I'm doing, I'm new to 4-wheeling and much more likely to get the jeep stuck I think.

My friend put the poweer plant on his TJ. He loves it, but the compressor went out and he had to take it back for repair. Took them a month, but it's as good as new again. It is tall for sure.

Email sent to boss requesting Fri/Sat off.... I'd like to camp there if anyone else is interested
You live pretty close to me (Murrieta). If you break while I'm still there, I'm trailering mine. I could get you home, but you'd have to drive mine, provided I don't break also.
Think positive, give your Jeep a good checkup first, and take it slow and easy. A heavy right foot breaks stuff. Finesse it over the rocks.
So far it looks like I'm only there for the day. I sure hope that changes.


Oh... and the adventure passes are available at Big 5 Sporting Goods also.

I like the Powerplant, I just wish I could afford it, but any Watn winch is worth the money. The air up time is adequate, not omg I can't believe how fast it is, but it is quicker than a clamp on the battery or plug in the lighter pump. Get a good quality battery...

Some folks complain about them blocking airflow but I've been out in hot weather with folks that have them and they didn't have any probs. The ShrcokWorks bumper is pretty decent, I like the lights set in them

Disclaimer about wheeling alone goes here, followed by the do as I say not as I do disclaimer

I've had to use a winch once wheeling alone, it was worth the price I paid for it that day.

Other than that I use mine once or twice a year, just used it last weekend to haul someone up a climb. I'ts come in real handy for impromptu bodywork, yard work and stump pulling and hauling people out of the sand at Fiesta Island.

My feeling is that if you run in groups where others have winches they are a luxury. If you run alone or with someone without a winch, it gets paid for the first time you use it.

Yeah, Betsy pointed that out to me. That's why it's probably only going to be a day trip for me, 'cuz I've got kids. They don't believe in the easter bunny anymore. I'm glad, 'cuz I was tired of wearing that bunny suit every year.
You should see me on ground hogs day.

you can also get your adventure pass at the ranger station in Alpine. you pass it on the way out if u take 8 east. you only need it if you are going to be camping or parking a tow rig at 4 corners while out wheeling. a one day pass costs 5 bucks. and co-incidentally, the fine for parking without a pass is also 5 bucks

Hey that would work if absolutely needed. I'd fuel up your rig for you in return. I'm going out to Ana-crime on Tuesday, so I'll scrounge for an 8.8 while I'm at the Pick-Your-Part. That way I'd have backup... thanks Rick!

No reply yet from the boss, but if I have to I can shuffle shifts with someone else to have Sat off. My buddy's going to ride shotgun with me, trying to convince him to buy his own Jeep

Edited from info on their website

After, I bought an 8.8 a couple pf months ago and it was just over $26.84 but by the time they added on state, local and federal tax, title, license, and dealer fees, disposal fees, core charge, yard fee, EPA fee, fifi and various and assorted charges and fees it came to just about $130
