So far I am assuming we have:

1. Me
2. Basalt51
3. Bent
4. Eric's XJ
5. canyonman
6. XJourney
7. 2extreme

A few other people have shown interest, but so far that is it. We need 3 more rigs, anyone else want to step up?
I hate to do this, I guess I spoke too soon. 2xtreme and I are not going to come down. His rig is still in parts and completely unproven at this point and way too many "issues." We don't want to be "THAT GUY!" And I have a 6 month pregeant wife at home, so making a 1500 mile trip on my own would NOT be in the best interest of my family. (finiancally and marritaly) But we will try for next year.

Once again we are sorry it didn't work out. Thanks to all who planned and helped out with Sierra fest. Especially you BC.

Re: IMPORTANT INFORMATION about SierraFest 2006

Well heck, I'm still in, "official run" or not. Been 2 years since I met some of you (Bryan and Basalt, and?....) and I'll look forward to meeting more. There may be another guy coming up with me from Reno too.

Re: IMPORTANT INFORMATION about SierraFest 2006

I was planning on going, but never commited. I guess it was people like me that got this thing cancelled...

Anyway, I have been trying like crazy to get my new rig in order for this run, and it looks like everything will come together in time. If I have the new rig done, I should be okay to run whatever (no lift, 33's, f/r lockers, 4.88's, boatsides, in/out cage thing). Though I question the fordyce crossings sitting so low...

If I dont get it done, I am still down for the Rubicon in my old POS (2.5", 31's, f/r limited slips, been through the Rubicon twice...). Unfortunately, I would have to just run the Con, because there is no way this rig will tackle the harder trails.

Either way, I won't be available until Monday morning, so as long as we can find a reasonable place to meet then, count me in...

Re: IMPORTANT INFORMATION about SierraFest 2006

I am still interested in hosting a Barrett Lake run for the 12th and 13th of August. As of right now, this in the only run to be rescheduled from the former SierraFest.

All the same run requirements still aplly, just need a vehicle that meets the minimum standards. I'll post up more info regarding this run in the Sierra Chapter.


EDIT: Run is now open to non-members
