Thursday


Trifecta #1 8:00 AM FULL - Trifecta is a LONG trail so we need an early start time. I'm thinking 8:00am. Also because of how long the trail is, it can get really overwhelming with a large group so we've suggested keeping this run to about 10 trucks if at all possible. I don't want to turn anyone away but this isn't a trail for novice drivers or stock trucks. Use good judgement about this trail. If you don't think you're truck is capable enough or you're worried about breakage and/or body damage, or you don't have much 4wheeling experience there might be a better trail choice for you

I recommend trucks on this run have a lift and at least 32" tires. At least one locker is strongly recommended. Armor and skidplates are suggested as well, you will use them. Breakdowns and body damage are likely on this trail. Bring food and LOTS of water for the day. Plan on 8-10 hours+ on the trail if we have a full group. Plan on longer if we have breakdowns. Each truck should have a tow strap, strong front and rear frame mounted recovery points, CB radio, trail spares. I can't enforce it but for the runs I'm leading I would request that alcoholic beverages not be consumed during the trail run. With a trail like this and for the benefit of the entire group, eliminating unnecessary complications and leaving the alcohol until after the run will help keep people on their A game.

Trifecta on Thursday will meet at 8:00am at the Poison Spider Mesa Trail parking lot. CB Channel 22. Once we have a full group signed up, I'll PM my cell # to the group in case you need to get a hold of me.

Friday

Moab Rim #1 9:00 AM - Moab Rim is a challenging trail and you will need at least one locker and 33's on this trail. Armor and skidplates are suggested. Have a tow strap and strong front and rear frame mounted recovery points on your vehicle.

Damage and rollovers are possible on this trail. Rollovers aren't likely but can happen on this trail. It is a trail that you need to be always paying attention to what you're doing, especially on the climb up to the rim and the descent back down as there are many off camber ledges.

I can't enforce it but for the runs I'm leading I would request that alcoholic beverages not be consumed during the trail run. With a trail like this and for the benefit of the entire group, eliminating unnecessary complications and leaving the alcohol until after the run will help keep people on their A game.

So, Moab Rim on Friday will meet at the Moab Movie Theater on Kane Creek Road at 9:00am on Friday. CB Channel 22.
