Thread: 5/6 Newbs at Night, Part II, with Extra Credit

  1. #1

    5/6 Newbs at Night, Part II, with Extra Credit

    A year ago, Mother's Day weekend, I lead the first Newbs at Night run. A year has passed, more Jeeps have been modded, more AIST has been accumulated, and we are beginning to ramp up the Summer heat. I picked the weekend of May 6th, this year, to avoid another long night on the trail, prior to Mother's Day.

    This run is for folks who believe they are built to run Collateral Damage, at Table Mesa. The trail is not short wheelbase friendly, but that hasn't stopped built SWB rigs, in the past. I will post up a few basic requirements for rig and driver, but not an all inclusive list. Feel free to post up, ask questions, and see if you are a fit for the run.

    1) Two lockers
    2) 35's min for SWB's and 37's for JKU's. If you are running 35's on a JKU, but think you are both built for it and ready to take your chances, post up. We've gotten them through, before. It just takes work and being okay with scraping/chance of body damage (depending on armor)
    3) A good attitude.
    4) AIST- you are comfortable pushing yourself and your rig, on a new trail
    5) Recovery points, front and rear, recovery straps, shackles, etc.
    6) Winch
    7) A maintained rig-please have your rig in good mechanical condition prior to starting the run. Having trail spares, tools, tire repair equipment, a spill kit, etc. is a great idea. Nothing worse than hearing, after someone breaks, I knew that was going out, but hoped to get one more run on it....

    My interest in this run is to get folks who haven't run CD before, up the trail. They will be given the first opportunity to sign up and run the trail. I'm not placing a vehicle cap on the run, today, but reserve the right to do so. Last year's run lasted, until 3AM, due to some late night shenanigans. I'm hoping for an earlier return to camp this year. Depending on the numbers and how quickly we get through CD, I would like to offer extra credit, for those interested. We would run down Anaconda and then up LT, before winding up the night.

    There will be other experienced Jeepers, placed throughout the run, to help spot and recover. Pretty sure that all of the participants, last year, had a blast! (even if some left the trail, tired) We are adults and this is a night run. Feel free to plan on camping at Little Pan, if you like.

    Meet time: 6PM Leaving for the trail ~6:30P. We will spend some time going over the rigs and running order, prior to pulling out and will leave whenever that is accomplished.

    Meet Location: Little Pan Staging Area, Table Mesa

    I'm sure you've got questions and I know I glossed over a couple of details, in this post. I just wanted to get the party, uh I mean, 'discussion' started. Looking forward to making 2017's run, as fun as 2016's.

    See you on the trails,
    Huck

    I'd like to once again claim a passenger seat, preferably in a rig with a full cage!
    I have margaritas I can contribute to the fun. 😉

    The Margarita cart never got back to me with dates of availability. Hoping for attendance and crossing my fingers....

    Remembering correctly, you would also be responsible for the Diabetes Balls.

    That could probably be arranged. I hate to correct you in your own thread, especially since I'm asking for a favor but you mispelled the name. To ensure proper pronunciation, they are diabeetus balls (aka bombs)!

    Then you have margaritas in your cooler! If the margarita cart doesn't join us, you may be the fill-in. Can you even fit a cooler in the jeep with your fancy new spare carrier?

    Cooler can take up the back seat.

    Poetic license is appreciated.
