Pyroskier and I are going wheeling Sunday the 30th if anyone wants to come. If weather/roads are decent, I know a good trail that runs behind the peaks in the Snowies. If not, we're gonna run some trails off of Happy Jack/Vedauwoo.
If we head for the Snowies we can meet at 9am in front of the Fire Station located on the west end of Laramie as soon as you turn onto WYO130.
If we go to Vedauwoo, meet at the Visitor's Center off of the exit for Happy Jack.
After looking at some videos of Shoshone Lake Road, we decided to switch it up and it's probably very doable for stock trucks and the length of the trail is more suited for Saturday. Looks like it'll be an entertaining trail.
Christina Lake on Sunday. Myself and Blackdawg are gonna meet up in Lander and hunt for a campsite and then return to town to round up anyone else who might be coming. Better to meet up in Lander since there's no cell service where we are headed and we're unsure of the actual camp location.
Meet in the McDonald's lot on the corner of 789 (coming from Riverton) and Main St./287... can't miss it.
October 7th - 9th in Lander
I looked around and made some calls. Looks like Lander is the best bet for trails and camping and most importantly, is about as 'centrally' located as it gets. I picked the date of Oct. 7th -9th to give you guys as much notice as possible.
I have a contact in the area who runs a local 4x4 club who offered to "show us around" since it doesn't seem anyone here has run any of the trails in the area. He also runs a camping/RV park in Lander in the link below. I'm gonna call the BLM and try to get some info on camping in the area for groups, unless everyone would prefer to stay in Lander.
I'll get there Friday evening and we can wait until mid-morning/noonish to hit the trails so we can make sure everyone gets to Lander in a reasonable amount of time. It was suggested that we run the trail to Christina Lake since stock trucks can make it through. On Sunday we'll run another (undertermined) trail unless we want to break off into groups and have one run Shoshone Lake Road if anyone else has sliders. If anyone wants to pitch in for BBQing Saturday night, let me know.
I'm also attaching two maps of the area.
Now lets see if anyone shows up!

I think it's time we started a thread for what I think will be our first TW Wyoming meet!
I'm up for anything, seems there are a few members in Laramie so it was suggested that we shoot some pool and get some drinks locally. But if we can get enough people on board we should definitely do some camping/wheeling somewhere.
Let's find out who's interested and post up some some ideas for the meet, as well as a time and location.
