-Head up Highway 4 to the campsite(TBA) so people can unload
-Wheel Slick Rock
-Campfire Saturday Night (Please bring cash for camping. I would bring $20 in change (i.e. 2 tens or 1 ten and 2 fives))
-Wake up early and wheel Deer Valley to Highway 88 (If water is too high we will wheel back to Highway 4 and leave from there)

-Mini skids or reinforced LCA brackets, a t-case skid, and a gas tank skid HIGHLY recommended. These are things that are REALLY HARD to fix on the trail!!
-Most importantly! A GOOD ATTITUDE (This trip will not be about who has a bigger ****. If it turns into that, I will have no problem with not asking you to come back on any other future trips. Its all about having fun, learning, and getting drunk around the campfire telling big lies about the days events.)
-If you are needing help to get your Jeep ready for the trip, please let SCCAFIRE know. He is willing to set up a wrenching day before the trip.
This is a great trip for some of the guys and gals that may be fairly new to 4 wheeling who can get there feet wet and be with others to help them out when needed. This will hopefully be a confidence building weekend for those who are new to the sport. Also,to be able to learn what you and your rig can and cannot do.
If you have any other questions about this trip PM ME.
Let's do it. It could be a little earlier too, I think when Bob and I camped out there in '09 it was the beginning of May and there was no snow, but it did snow on us on the way home with only bikini tops on.

Purdy country after watching the vid. Must be lower elevation if you're planning a May trip with all the snow this year??? As far as going... will have to play it by ear for now. I'd really like to do a Con trip if some of you guys are planning or going to do that sometime this season.
Also, I throw it out now... if any of you NorCal'ers are interested in coming down this way, at some point in the summer I'll likely be putting togeather a Swamp and/or Coyote Lake trial run. These are both Rubicon type (more of less) trails, so 33's and at least one locker are the norm.
'92 YJ, 4.0, 5sp, 8.8 w/ 4.56's locked F&R, Teralow 4-1, HD SYE, BDS 5" SUA lifted on 35 MTR's. PSE front trail cage kit, 1ton TRE flip, 1"shackles, 1"BL, 1" MM. <><

My summer days off work are limited this year. So if we do it on a weekend again that would be great. I do have the next two weeks off in August however. But I think we are planning a Barrett lake run in the second week of August.
This would really be the third annual Deer Valley trip. Some of us did it in 2009 also. Here are some links to videos of last year and '09.
