Jeepers of West Texas
Lets get a group together to go down South. I'll show you some new places, or you can lead. Makes no difference to me. Let's shoot for a weekend in September? Labor day weekend?
Best chance for mud...
Possible locations include:
Cedar springs area of terlingua Ranch
Aqua Fria also terlingua
Longhorn Ranch might be open on Labor day.
Christmas mountains reserve
I have the gate codes to Lajitas Resort, and have wheeled all the way down to Santa Elena Canyon from Lajitas airport. Creek all the way.
i would love a trip in late september maybe it will have cooled off some . . im buying a 4" lift kit today and wheels ad tires (* 33s) in a week or two so that would be perfect timing to test it out ha ha
Looking for somewhere to go Labor Day weekend. Anyone have a plan?
I have secured (asked) for a two days off during the traditional labor day weekend. If I get these days off I will definitely be there.
Looks like we have a few confirmed participants. Anybody wanting to join is welcome. We have full facilities at the ranch, so only need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, food, gas, drinks, etc...
We have shower facilities, cooking stoves, toilets, tools, etc. Our ranch is set up for this, so no worries.
Ok guys, we're on for Labor day weekend.
Do we want to meet up Sat 3rd Sept. in the AM in Alpine, and then all go down together? Ok?
We can unload on our ranch, get camp set up, and go from there.
Sleeping bag, pillow, towel, soaps. Shower/bath facility available.
Cooking utensile available, just bring your food/drinks. Indoor stove, campfire grill available. We have a good assortment of hand tools on the ranch, so no need to load your truck down with too much.
Not a lot of gas available, so an extra 5 or 10 gal. would be a good idea. We will be going into Study Butte at some point, they have a station , so 5 gal extra is probably enough.
I have a ride planned in the Cedar Springs area which will let us out on public land (BBNP). Not a hard trail, but could get challenging once we get into the creek.
Once we all get together and see what jeeps we have, we can plan something else. We will decide as a group who wants to do what.
So, who's in?
Works for me I have the second through the sixth off work.
Here is Cedar Springs are I'm wanting to explore We should be able to get into the creek up north, and follow it untill we get to the Marathon road.
Scroll up a little, and figure we get into the creek, We go south then East in the creek, and we end up in the park. We can get out of the creek at any time it seems appropriate. Then we can stay on the roads since the park frowns on offroading.
What time does everybody want to meet up Sat. Am.?
Since it is a short ride, I will drive my jeep down. Once we leave Cedar Springs area, we can grab a bite to eat at the terlingua lodge restaraunt.
I am still wanting to go on this trip. I am unfamiliar with the area and have not Jeeped with you before, I would like more information. This might sound weird, but I start jeep prep and packing a week before I go anywhere and just want to know more of the details of this trip to plan better. Here are my main questions:
Are we going to be staying in a ranch house or do we need to bring something to set up?
Are there any fees or costs associated with the trip other than our own?
Which meals are we going to cook and which are we going to go to eat in Study Butte or Terlingua? Are we eating lunch on the trail?
Approximately how long are the Jeep rides?
It seems like we are going to explore the Cedar Creek area on Saturday, what are the trail riding plans Sunday or Monday?
Need to know when we are meeting on Saturday morning (I will have a 3 hr ride from Midland) and what time and day everyone plans to leave(?)
