Look like this one will be dec 13th toy for tots 15 per rig nothing extra for ride alongs. Coffe hot drinks at the end of the ride. Green and blue trails open. According to what I have read the blue trails are like black trails at rausch creek. Sounds fun pm and post here if this is something you wanna do
Thanks in advance

Is this a club ride? I was just down there a couple weeks ago and ran blues and blacks. It's a good time, I've been there several times. I haven't been to RC yet, though I will be there next year.

Keep on Jeepin' * lllllll *

what's the diff between blue and green.
I assume black is the roughest?
During the rock run dec 13th run do you need a 2nd vehicle with you?
Do I have to dress up?

Anyone can go with me I'm no expert just try to go easy with the skinny pedal. This is my view of the trails, I've not been on all the trails but have seen most of them. So here's my opinion.

Greens are trails with some rocks and mild hill climbs
Blues are tight tree obstacles, little larger rocks some off camber hill sides steep hill climbs and descents
Black are large rocks requiring at least 33's and one locker (IMO).
I wheeled with a jeep that had a 2" lift and 31" and it did well but I winched him twice off rocks and up a hill climb. The jeep didn't fare real well on one trail. Without having ground clearance the run got bent on both sides and passenger door doesn't close very well anymore. Now partly because the skinny pedal was used a little too much but no clearance definitely hindered it.

I'm still trying to figure out the date, it's a Friday and the last Friday of deer season. So if someone can confirm this date for sure. ...?

That's what I thought thank you for clearing this up. I couldn't find anything to confirm OP. I was at the TFT were you? We ran with Big Rubbers on Sunday.

We went up on Saturday. It was kind of nice (before the rain came)as the place was pretty much empty.
Always a good time up there at R.R. for a good cause.
