Rubicon Trail August 9th-11th 2014

Yes we are planning a year in advance ! We started planning the Moab trip 8 months out and it turned out great . If you havent seen the thread heres the Moab 2013 Jeep Forum trip . http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f330/...013-a-1444235/ Moab was awesome and I think the Rubicon will be just as much fun.

Right now the dates are tentative , and as the trip gets closer we can adjust the dates . I havent run the Rubicon , but I have been to the area to ski . With that said please post up any ideas and or things we need to do .

So heres the beginning of the August 9th-11th 2014 Rubicon Jeep Forum Jeep builders wheeling trip . Wow thats a bit wordy ... How about JF Rubicon 2014 instead

If i start saving now i might be able to afford the gas...

41 hours, 2700 miles..........ONE WAY

5400 miles / 15MPG =~360 gallons of gas x ~$4.00 = $1400 in gas alone.

would totally be worth it though.

I guess I can check my uber busy schedule and see if I can find the time to hang out with the common folk.

Sub'd

Would love to make it, but that drive is even more killer (on me and my wallet) than CO/Moab. I'll be there if I can though. I will definitely be doing more wheeling than just the Rubicon if I go though, that's a long drive for one little trail lol.

Beasley this sounds like fun... It's not that far of a drive for me so consider me in!

I'd be interested in hitting Fordyce Creek afterwards also since it's not that far from the Rubicon. That would make a great trip!
