    Ok everyone, for those of you on Cajun Yotas I have already thrown this Idea out there. I want to get a group together and hit up Big Bend for some awesome Prerunning and Rock Crawling and all around badassness this summer. Although the date isn't set in stone I'm shooting for the first week in August. From the pictures I've seen this place looks amazing.

    I know that this is a while from now but hopefully it'll give people time to save up and get time off work!

    Whose in?

    Big Bend is guaranteed to be HOT as HELL in August. Always around 105-110 degrees every afternoon. You need to plan a trip for late FEB to get the BEST BB weather possible!!! I live in El Paso...I've been there a lot...I avoid the summer. Plus the park is fairly empty this time of year. You get free reign and get to choose your back country camp locations. Not so much in the summer.

    BUT...your idea to come out here to BB is SOLID! It's a huge OHV playground!!!

    Pics from my last trip...

    I've been wanting to head that direction again. I've been there before but wasn't equipped to wheel. Keep us updated on the plans.
