LJ from jersey checkin in. Would you east coasters be driving our or trailering? 2 weeks might a be a bit much for me at the moment but this trip is definitely worth it. Kind of killing two birds with one stone, traveling out west, and wheeling the rubicon! I'll definitely be following along with the thread and hoping I can some how make it along.

Yeah, its all going to depend on my AFSC, I'll graduate boot at the end of March. Tech could be anything from a month to 3 months.

I'm not getting my hopes up on making it, it'd be nice if I did, though.

Do you know what your AFSC is going to be. My tech school was only 6 weeks of job training so everything after joining was pretty quick.

Not sure, they've changed it to where you're put into an aptitude area, and you get a specific job in basic. I'm in the mechanical aptitude area, maintenance is in my future. I want to get into one of the newer airframes, or a new system so if I decide to get out early I'll be able to get a job pretty easily.

I'm still not sure if I'm going to do a full 20 years, or only 4.

I came in open mechanical and selected a few aircraft maintenance jobs and vehicle maintenance in basic and ended up becoming a Vehicle operator. I love it but I will say it's the least mechanical job your'll find. So be careful with going in open mechanical.

Sierra Trek at Fordyce is the same dates as well. I'll be going to ST if I can.

Looks like you all need to change the date

don't be too surprised if your maintenance tech school is closer to 5-6 months.

I was 2A6X2 AGE mechanic and it was nearly 6 months.

I wish I had gotten to know some of you better when I was stationed in 29 Palms. I'd have been at the Hammers to learn from you Art every trip. I'd walk there if I had to. I'd love to jump on this trip too if I can coordinate with school and family. I'd like to get to know a lot of you guys better. I have that trail book too. Pulled it out for nostalgia's sake the other day. This trip will be sweet if I can swing it.

Would love to do Fordyce, just before or after the Sierra trek when the waterlevel is still down

This trip sounds awesome, but it is one year early for my schedule! Good luck and I look forward to hearing how it goes.

I am always up for a Rubicon or Fordyce run. Water levels are usually good after the Sierra Trek.
