Open Seats?

I'd like to go, but the XJ isn't quite ready for it. So I was wondering if anyone out there had an open seat I could fill. I'd be self sufficient, I could help with gas, and I don't even mind getting out in the mud and helping with repairs/stucks. I don't even require much room. Just me and a backpack.

I figure running with someone who knows what they are doing would be a good idea before attempting it on my own. I have been wheeling for a while, but mostly mud and forested trails. I have very little rock experience.

Thanks!
Cody

Re: Open Seats?

I'm sure there will be plenty of seats! Just depends on what trails you want to see.

Re: Open Seats?

How do the runs work? Does everyone meet in one location, BS for a while, then split up into different groups and head out? I am looking at staying at the OK RV Park and being there Wednesday - Sunday.

Re: Open Seats?

I haven't been out for a few years. I do remember gathering early in the morning in the City Market parking lot, and running out to the trails from there.

Re: Open Seats?

The last few years there have been staging areas set up for the different trails. However I don't know if that will be needed. It all depends on how many show up.

The BLM limits the number of rigs each trail can run on a particular day. It depends on the trail, each one is different. If they do it like they used to there will be a sign up sheet for each trail that is run each day. When that trail fills up, you will have to look for the next one. Then the morning of that run you will line up at the meeting place set up for that particular trail and follow the trail leader of the day until you are back to town.

Re: Open Seats?

Last year we all staged up at SlickRock Campground every morning. Had to sign up for the trails there with Vince (I think was his name). That's where I will be staying at this year also. Yo Mike- You gonna be there again this year?????

I'd suggest you try to stay at Slickrock Campground. Everything is decided from there. You will have best luck getting a seat there in the evening before or that morning. I'm happy to show you what I can & you can ride when the wife wants the day off, I often leed trails but there are more experienced drivers & mechanics than me, for sure. Come & have fun, lots of great guys, you'll have a blast. It's all about getting new guys into wheeling. These guys did it for me. Thom

It's not a problem. I'll have an open seat (and I'm sure they be others) but there will be trails stock rigs can do just fine. Come on out and join the fun. Like Thom said we'll be staying at the Slick Rock Campground and that's out home base for registration/trail signups.

Re: Open Seats?

Thanks for all the responses guys! Since I cant possibly fill 6 open seats at once, hopefully this will be a good go to place for others looking for a seat.

Thanks again!
