Will there be any advanced announcement on what trails will be run on Saturday with ratings like easy, etc.? I just want to know if there will be anything for a stock Jeep.

Hi Maz,

The trails will be announced at the Discovery Center on Saturday morning.

There will be trails for everything from easy/scenic to the toughest Big Bear offers. Some of the available trails include Gold Mountain, John Bull, Deep Creek/Dishpan Springs, 3N16, 2N01, 2N04, Onyx Loop, Heartbreak Ridge/Pontiac Sluice, and more.

There are minimum NAXJA requirements that ALL vehicles must meet:

"From the Bylaws -
Section 3: Required Equipment for Event Participation

1. VERY HIGHLY recommends that all event participants have a CB Radio.
2. requires all listed items to be present, and available for use, for a vehicle to be permitted to participate in a event. Participants are expected to stow equipment and all other items within their vehicle in a safe manner, conscious of the effects of OHV use and possible shifting of items.
3. Safety Inspectors will use this list for safety inspections prior to any event. The Safety Inspector has final say in approval or rejection of any vehicle for event participation and may at anytime defer to a second event or club officer for additional ruling.
4. expects each event participant to carry insurance and registration sufficient to meet the legal requirements of their vehicle state of residence and for the roads and trails traveled for the event. is not responsible for assuring an entrant's vehicle is legal for the roads and trails traveled in the event.

Equipment List

1. Visibly charged fire extinguisher (BC or ABC)
2. First aid kit
3. Adequate spare tire, jack and lug wrench
4. Safety belts for driver and any current passenger
5. Adequate attachment points in the front and rear of the vehicle:
1. Acceptable forms of attachment points: (All Items must be mounted in a manner to provide adequate strength and integrity)
2. Tow hooks of OEM or greater integrity
3. D-Rings
4. Shackle/Clevis
6. 20ft 10,000lb snatch strap without any metal hooks
7. Secured battery (no bungee cords)"


Trail selection will determine additional vehicle requirement - lift, tires, lockers, armor, etc...

Alcohol is not permitted on the trails!"

Waivers will be need to be signed by all participants.

I hope this helps!

Thanks. Looks like I can be there on Saturday morning and am very close to meeting the minimum rig requirements. I do drive a bone stock Jeep and didn't want to drive all the way up there only to find out that all the trails are for the big Jeeps.

I will be up there.

Sorry, but this will be a zero tolerance policy. We will not inspect coolers, but alcohol consumption by participants of the event during a trail ride is not allowed per the club and chapter rules.

Good thing there is only a couple of 'official' events a year!
I can make it four or five hours without a brew...but then the sarcasm kicks in!

:D

But I'm thinking we should inspect Remi's cooler....
