Dang it, I wish I had already got chains!
Chains are highly recommended, but not required.
A lot will depend on the conditions... if its really heavy, we won't go as far in like we did last year.
Chains make it a lot easier to get out, especially for the big rigs and if it gets icy. But if the majority don't have chains we will be more conservative in where and how high we go, so we won't be as challenged to get out, like last year

EDIT: IF MOST DON'T HAVE CHAINS, I MAY BRING THE NEWER 4RUNNER SO SCOUT WILL HAVE MORE FUN AND WON'T NEED THE TRAILER AND TOW RIG
LET'S SEE WHO HAS WHAT AND WANTS TO GO

Looking like I'll take the newer 4Runner and not bother loading up the crawler and transferring all the gear so not so much deep stuff this trip.
If you intend to go please indicate by 9PM tonight Friday so I know whether to wait for you at the junction

I would like to tag along as well if there’s still room. No chains however, and lower clearance if that’s not a problem. There’s a big sticker under the hood that says "snow version" if that means anything!! If you think I would hold you back I understand and won’t come, but I would like to see how it does in snow. Don’t want to dampen anyone’s fun however.

We'll be departing ABQ at 8:30 (earlier if possible), after dropping Isabelle off at driving school on Eubank. I'll bring chains for all four tires.

Too far north. Too far east.
