Sorry I have been absent the past few days guys. They were really crazy at work.
That sounds find but are we even going to register as a group or just singles and hope for the best?
If you think we should go in as a group then perhaps we all just include an extra sheet of paper saying to please consider the following people as a group for the following trails... Explain we are the "Jeep Forum Jeepers" group Then list the date, trail and names of the people who are going that particular day.
Not really sure how to go about doing a group...
Yes I did see the stuff in there regarding group registrations. They also allow for groups to register individually but don't fully explain how (that I saw). I am fine with whatever everyone wants to do. If everyone wants to send me the registrations and checks I am happy to send it in for the group. Dax - what do you think?
Yeah they basically say it is easier for them if all group registrations are sent together but they can be sent separately and we can instruct them to combine them if we want. They don't really elaborate on how to do that how ever. I figure if we did it that way, like you said just include a separate piece of paper with our group name. I figure if we say we are part of the Jeep Forum Jeepers and would like to run as part of this group for all the days on our trails selection sheet then they will figure it out. If everyone would rather send all the registrations to one person and do it that way I would volunteer to be that person as well. Although I think we would have to do it really soon if that was the route we wanted to take.
Good question... Dax what do the non EJS trails look like on their days off? I will be registering for 3 EJS days already, not sure I want to spring for another.
To be honest I don't know any more than you. Last year when we ran our trails it was after EJS right? The only days I ran during EJS was as a part of EJS. The trails may be busy but I cant imagine they would be so busy that it would cause problems as far as running them. I think most people that don't run EJS don't come at the same time as EJS since the hotels and everything are so packed. So I think we will be OK. I could be wrong but that's my 2 cents.
I am busy ordering parts and wheeling and dealing on a possible trade of my TJ for an almost Identical LJ, except it has full doors and a hard top, plus 5000 more miles for about 4000 trade differance. Just not sure that is the route I want to go. It would save me stretching my TJ's wheel base. Do the LJ's get around as good as a TJ? Or is the departure angle that much of a differance?
Dax are you sure it is ok for us to camp at your place? Just wanted to ask 1 more time before I give up my reservations.
Yes I am 100% sure. Me and my parents are expecting to have a bunch of people camping here during EJS... you are more than welcome.
I´m following this threat for several days and it all sounds great! I hope I can make the trip from Germany to the Easter Jeep Safari this year and meet you all...and hopefully there will be someone who can give me a place at the co driver seat...or in the back
What company is your friend renting the Jeep? Do you know something about the costs? Maybe I can get one for at least 2-3 days, that would be great!!
Hey Enzo... hows the trip planning going? Did Farabee's get back to you with that quote yet?
Right on i finally sent in my papers today. Sounds like a good time!!!!
Nice scorpionns551! What trails on what days did you ask for? Hopefully we will run into each other. I also really like Sean's idea of everyone getting together some night just to meet everyone even if we don't run together. Kind of like a Jeep Forum meet and greet. We should set a day for that and have a round of beers together
