Any one of them. One side is set up to be ran by stockers and was ran by a stock libby and a 4dr rubicon for testing. The other side is made more for guys that don't care about trail rash and getting it dirty. So it's up to you.

water falls from sky.. mixes with dirty stuff on ground.. drive over that mixture with AT tires and go nowhere..

less watery dirty stuff = at tires do quite well..

unless someone has a set of 30-31" MTs on wheels that will fit libby i can borrow for a day.. i have to consider these things.

I meant that as a joke, since we haven't had any consideralble amount of rainfall in the past two or three months...

i talked to craig today he said that tom was going to pump some water in the trail out of the creek beside it to make it muddy. :( not a big mud person myself but oh well. there is some low areas that stay wet but there are plenty of dry also as long as he doesnt flood the whole thing.

I was at the trail clearing on Saturday, Tom never said anything about making it muddy, he was just wanting to make some good trails so everyone could have fun, there are a few spots that are man eaters(as Tom called them) I had gotten eaten by one of those spots, He will have people at those spots to help keep the Jeeps moving through the trails in a smooth fashion, Geek I think you can wheel everything there , the are alot of articulation spots on the Advance course, you will definately have fun, and thats what its all about. If you dont feel comfortable doing something take it slow, the trail spotters are there to help you get through it, the Newbie section I drove around it in 2 Wheel drive and only had to put it in 4WD going up the hills, Take your time, wheel both sides if you want to, I think there is alot to do just in 1 day.

CJ look up to see answers.....the pics on facebook are from last year.....the past weekend it wasn't that bad on advanced side. Never heard anything thing about pumping water, but it also looks like some odz guys were out there after we left on sat making some adjustments to the trails with a bobcat.....so there will be surprises for even some of the help :tu2:
And yes plenty of time to do both

thats right you guys didnt hear about the water being pumped in because that talk was sunday when craig and john were out there with tom. im just telling you guys what craig told me today when i went into odz to get some more fliers to hand out. weather they do or not who knows. thats just what the man said today. tmw it could change again. i personally hope they dont pump water in.

wow hope he dont pump too much water in. wasnt sure how much wheelin i was going to do anyway, planned on volunteering most of the day then hitting the articulation ramp/teeter totter. may do some ride alongs and take pics for people

we are taking a lunch break for about an hour so people have a chance to talk/socialize/repair/ look @ other rigs,
we will be clearing the trails of all rigs during this time.

So.. I won't be able to make it out there until noon. Will I still be able to wheel? If so, who do I give the $25 to? Where is this place (PM me)? :)
