Noob wheelers (Any of you guys looking for an easy learning trail)?

So just getting a feeler for any of you guys that are getting into wheeling and want to start on an easy trail? Something that you most likely won't get damage (Can never say 100% you won't get damage - stay in the garage if you can't assume the risk at all)... If there are enough (or hell even two of you) I'll plan a trip for ya guys Whether you guys want it to be technical or snow we can decide later or do both. Snow is fun because you may get stuck a lot, but a little digging gets you out

I'll go on this....Assuming it fits into my schedule. I jumped on Slaughterhouse train in January (18 or so rides) for my first trip. Maybe we can get that bandwagon again! LOL

Hi Everyone,

I just moved here from AZ, and I don't know anything about the trails here in CO. I'd love to get to know people, and learn the trails here, and I haven't done too much wheeling either. I have a slightly modified (2" BB w/ 30" BFG AT) ZJ, but would love to get out and see CO.

As long as it fits my schedule, I'd definitely love to attend something. I'm in Colorado Springs if that helps at all.

Nathan

I would love too, but I have to work on Saturday. Thanks for the info though!

Also, I've seen a lot of people have CB's. I don't have one, my family and I always went together in AZ and used the crappy little walkie-talkie things. Are CB's important for the group here, and if so, any recommendations?

Thanks!

Nathan

Not important per-say, but they are definitely nice to have. Especially if you have a large caravan, it's a lot easier to communicate.

Maybe 40% of the regular wheelers in the group have CB's...that number has been increasing a lot and it makes wheeling more fun and it is VERY nice to be able to communicate to the lead vehicle and see what is going on or stop them.

I have a Cobra 75WXST and like it. Visit Cobra's website and find one that fits where ever you want to put your CB.

Ryan (Pullmesideways) and I chatted for most of the ride to Chinaman and most of the entire ride home last time we went. We both flew solo, it's a great way to pass the time.

Nathan, Hey

Most of us carry a cb as a universal means of comunications(ch 4), and while on a ride together. Those little walkie talkies work, but many of us 4x4'ers don't have them, or keep batteries for them.
My thoughts on what to buy...get a cb that is not the kind that has the mic and base unit as one piece, these do not work as well, get as loud, or broadcast as far as a "standard" unit.

I too, might be able to go on a trail ride in future...

Tom

Nick, get yer a** over here then! I forgot to give you those receiving blankets for the baby last time you were over!

I'm up for any run people want to do now. Just need to make sure that somebody in the group has a recovery strap since I'm still waiting for Josh's bum friend to buy me my Big Daddy since he converted my strap into a worthless piece of nylon
