October 13th-14th, starting @ 10:00am day 1, ending around 5-6pmish day 2.
How many slots are available?
This year we are going to try opening up the amount of attendees to 20. Usually we cap it at 16, but due to the terrain/areas we are traveling through being able to support larger groups we are going to give this a try:
Where will we be going?
This year we are taking a journey through the west desert, starting in Delle, exploring the areas around Delta, and ending at 5 Mile Pass. Along the way we will check out all sorts of unique historic, cultural, and geological sites that are sure to pique your interest.
Any offroad capable, street legal and registered vehicle is welcome. Based off our pre-runs a stock JKU can handle the route but be prepared for some technical sections. Also if it rains the route will become quite muddy.
What to expect?
•Be prepared for wheeling for 10-12+ hours each day.
•We will be taking stops along the way for pictures, lunch, and seeing sights.
•Travel speed will be at an average pace determined by the slowest vehicle. Mid and tail gunners will keep the group together.
•There are some narrow spots on the trail surrounded by foliage so be prepared for Rocky Mountain Pinstriping. The larger the vehicle, the more chance for pinstriping.
•Most of trail is quite dusty, with one section in particular being ridiculously dusty.
•Some sort of on board air is recommended.
•Keep in mind this is a backcountry trip, not a rock crawling trip, so the trails aren't going to be hardcore challenges the entire time. There are few challenging spots, but nothing extreme.
•Very cold nights and hot days, pack accordingly.
•Expect to see some amazing scenery.
What to bring?
•Good attitude, NO WHINERS(as Petersens magazine likes to say)
•A CB radio isn't required, but extremely highly recommended so you know what's going on.
•Enough food and water to last 2 days, 1 night in a remote location.
•Camping gear for 1 night in the desert without much protection from wind.
•Enough fuel to go 250ish miles between fill-ups. 1 spare 5 Gallon gas can is required, 2 would be ideal
This is a 2 day trip with lots of miles covered. We will be moving at a decent pace to cover all the routes. Prepare yourself mentally and physically for an awesome time!
