Since I wont be able to make the FYTO event this year I thought I would give this a shot. I got the wife to get onboard with this, so its a for sure thing.
Winter desert run @ White-rocks Utah
When -----------February 22nd (sat) trail run
We will be going out Friday after work and spending the weekend (fri-sat nights)
Snow, Rain, or shine . Lets hope for the first .
4WD , tire size none, CB, Extra fuel, spare tire, recovery strap, good attitude and also be prepared for the cold conditions.
Desert roads, sandy and small rocky sections, high speed desert bombing area's . There may be some snow drifts also depending on how much snow if any. Some rockcralwin near the camp(s) . Plenty of hiking and stuff for the Lil r/c's
Camp or just come out for the trail run.
On the way out firday afternoon we will be going on one of the last remaining paved sections of the Lincoln Hwy on the way there . Basically passing 5-mile and driving through Rush valley going towards Dugway.
When posting specify if you are camping, trail only, on the fence .
This trail will be taking us counter clockwise and going through historical Hastings Pass and round the backside of the Cedar Mtns. There is an old cabin on the back of Hastings Pass to check out.
Im gauging this trail to be 60+ miles of dirt round trip but if we have to turn back at 3/4 way due to snow drifts (if any) I stress the importance of extra fuel. (Snow-bashing may be nessesary)
At the half way point we can break off the route and go into Delle via dirt road for emergency fuel (if needed).
Trail runtime is about 4-6 hrs.
Lunch break will be at or near the old cabin.
