NorCal Wheeling Trip, Strawberry Pass, Choose the date

So what do you all think about wheeling at strawberry pass? I was thinking of the 13th, 20th or the 27th. We can camp too if people want too. Ill start a pole and then once we get a date decided I will start another thread. You can choose multiple dates too if you're available for more than one!

http://www.norcalttora.com/trails/strawberry.php


EDIT:

So it looks like the 13th is the prevailing date so far. We have Cram, Mikey and maybe Shaw. I will start a new thread in a few days.

Suitable for stock trucks? A couple friends and I were planning on doing Barney Riley on the 14th but if my friends stock 2nd gen can make it through this then I'll see if I can get them to do this trail instead.

I've never ran the trail but I wouldn't recommend a stock truck run it at least sliders. Barney Riley would be much better for a stock truck.

I don't have a locker or any lift...stock suspension from 1992 and 31" tires. I DO have sliders though (thanks to Jerry). Would this be possible for me? Those two obstacles in the ttora trail description seem pretty intense and tough for anyone open.

Like others have said, sliders are a must unless you want body damage.

I'm not sure on 31" tires. Maybe someone else will say what they think about that. I'm open-open.

Just like Eric said you are golden. I'm same as you but no skids and I've done slick rock and deer valley, which I think are probably more difficult than this trail.

So it looks like the 13th is the prevailing date so far. We have Cram, Mikey and maybe Shaw.

What do you mean by hits? I did Eagle lakes a few weeks ago (using the bypass instead of doing Driveshaft hill, though) and I hit the front skid and LCA mounts a few times, but nothing too bad. Is that what you mean?
As for the date, I'm good with whatever. I won't be able to do a camp, though.
