@jps8460 wanted to see if I could get in on this action since a few people dropped out? I was gonna bring my rig but I could be either a passenger if someone wanted to drive my rig or I can be a driver.

is there room for another driver + wife? new to the group so not sure if there are any prerequisites to go on this (gear, radios, etc) - or if the class is full, as it were

if not and there is room, my wife and i would like to join as we are 2mos new to 4x4 and this seems like a great learning opportunity

thanks,

Okie Dokie, here's what I'm showing

@3rdGen4R - Driver
@rocdoc - Driver
@Notyourmomslx450 - maybe
@Inukshuk - pass - Megan was talking about going... we may have to play by ear.
@MonPetiteShoe - Driver
@Cruiserman - Driver +1
@FireMike - maybe
@gungriffin - passenger
@r.swany - Driver
@Trail Bum - passenger
@Duchess - driver
@Gator1 - driver
and me

We should be just great with this group. If you're a maybe, you might need to hop in with someone based on actual turnout.

GMRS/frs is fine, I'll bring my hand held. We'll just need a tail gunner on ham :)

For the actual instructional driving, anyone that is willing to hop in as a passenger to keep the truck count down is welcome to drive my truck.

remember to bring some warm clothes.

Cheers!
I'll be there. But no GMRS onboard. :-(

Hi All,

I'm thinking that we aught to do another newbs run. I'm thinking 11/20, weather permitting. Share your interest, and I'll get details posted shortly. This would be at slaughter house gulch. If we get snowed out, we'll find a big parking lot and play with our gear.

Let’s limit to 10 trucks

It's going to be cold, bring a camp chair and warm gear. Check here for updates on changes regarding weather.

Pizza provided by the club on the way home.

@3rdGen4R or anyone else find a brown spiral notebook at the lunch spot last Saturday. I left it on @3rdGen4R bumper and just now realized :-( It has notes that are important to me. Thanks!
