Drive it! There's a high probability of winning the Iron Butt Award AND/OR the Hard Luck Award.Looking forward to this for 2018.
Had a great time in 2016 with my FJ Cruiser. I'm hoping to make the 30th in my FJ55.
Of course, in 2016 I was in CA. Drive or ship the 55 from CT?
Fear not! Plenty of time and lots of friends here. In addition to the resources noted above you can ask just about any question on this thread and get a straight up answer from an experienced person. Pick the run you plan to attend and the trail lead will reach out to you as soon as they are in place. Otherwise, just ask away.When and where is the registration located for this event?
Also, I am planning on attending this event and want to plan accordingly. I am driving from Raleigh NC and would love to be pointed to a good resource that has information for folks that have one, never driven this trail and two, never been to this event.
Since I am coming from the other side of the country it be nice to have some information for planning considerations.
Thanks in advance
What will you be driving?
Thanks. As I get closer I might take you up on the offer. For now the rubithon Page has enough info to answer most of the initial questions I had.So, if it's your first time, I'd suggesting joining the wagon run. It's starts a day earlier from Loon Lake and is a relaxed and fully supported run that spends one night at Buck Island and 2 nights at Rubicon Springs. Last year was my first year and I totally get your feeling that it's hard to find hard information. In summary, you're going 20 miles in 3 days, you can walk it faster than youi can drive it. There is no drinking water, but there is lots of water available - bring water and a water filter. There are lots of out houses along the way, bring wag bags but you may not end up using one. Most people sleep out on the granite most nights. Feel free to PM me if you want to have a phone call or email conversation in which you can ask all your questions.
We took an ‘06 there but not with the wagon run. Our calendars didn’t match after the date change so we went rogue. This year’s is not looking good as well but im hoping I could cut short on my trip from my cousin’s wedding in France.I'm very interested in attending this year's wagon run with my 100 Series. I understand that few have done this, but I would like to give it a go.. any chance someone organizing the Wagon Run can reach out to me, before I register, to make sure they are comfortable with this.
Hey Chad, your 4runner that I saw up in CTW will make it regardless what group you go in.I got the green light to go this year! Now I just need to finish my 4Runner (3.4, dual cases, tons, locked, 40's) or talk the wife into taking the 5th Gen 4Runner (3" lift, 285's, armored, rear locker)....
Do you guys think a first timer should sign up for the wagon run no matter what rig we bring?
