Probably out unless it's in the cool country, even with A/C just done with the heat. Last weekend don't think it got to 70 up north. Inside was never above 63 so no fire in the needed in the stove. Garage was 58 inside most the day.:bounce:

I'm in. Murf is this camping and wheeling? I need to make sure I have time to prepare, need to mount my bumper and buff out some scratches.
Let me know if you need help installing new running boards.

Wow this thread turned quickly. With all these shiny Toyotas on the trail it's a real possibility of dangerously distracting Jeep drivers. Let's be safe out there, people.

not too worried about Jeeps >> On the way in on 393 last weekend, we met a Jeep on 35's, bumpers, etc heading back out. They said they turned around becasue the road was washed out and the "passage was too sketchy".

Yes it was, but our shine and grit carried us through!

Yes but in all fairness if the jeep was running solo that may have influence his decision. I'm always more cautious when I'm out by the myself. Typically no one to spot me and most the time passengers I have along their safety is more important then my own.

I do the same, and I'm out alone about half the time. Not worth getting stuck somewhere through unexpected events and then turn it into a survival situation for you and passengers due to stubbornness. Better safe than sorry,

Back to the ROTM.

Trail rating, will this be stocker friendly? Lockers? Sliders?
Will we camp overnight, planned or possibly unplanned?
Do I need a special pass?
Does the CBT repair special apply for this run?

Enquiring minds want to know. There must be 37 reasons to make some necessary upgrades.

The "new" technical place merits more time to be able to prerun so that is out. Gonna keep it simple and closer to town.

Unfortunately Tina and I cannot do the overnight.

@murf Question, do you think it would be possible for us to be back in town by 3:00 - 3:30? I am sure we could bug out at lunch time, but just curious what you think of the logistics of that?
Thank you.
