Epic Run Lottery

For those of you who are interested in being included in the Epic Run this year please read the following and submit your details.

Drivers Meeting: Thursday evening (not certain about time)
When: Friday, June 26th, 8:00AM departure

Here are a few of the details of the intent:
The "EPIC" run. This run is designed to be a mentally and pysically challenging run for the combined group. It will run the vast majority of the most difficult trails in the area in record time. What is most important about this run is that everyone has the understanding of the expectations of the group and can act in accordance with those expections, particularly with regard to trail etiquite, extraction techniques, trail communication, repair issues, etc. I think that 33" tires, 1 TAD would be required. But group trail experience is much more important. I hope this trail run will be a challenging understaking for everyone in the group and I hope that it provides a "base line" for all future NW Fest trail run's.


Requirements in order of importance:
1. Be ready to hit the trail at 8:00AM Friday morning.
2. Be able to attend the drivers meeting Thursday evening.
3. Reliable vehicle.
4. Wheeling experience.
5. Wheeling experience with your vehicle.
6. 33" tires minimum.
7. 1 TAD (locker, spool, limited slip, etc).

Send me a PM with the details of your Jeep so that Han's and I can consider you for this event. I don't expect a disertation but I do expect a list of your rigs specs and proof of it's and yours capabilities so that we can decide how many groups will go and how many in each group.

If you do not meet the minimum spec's above and would still like to try to attend, send me the same as above and include why you should be considered even though you don't meet the minimum spec's.

Re: Epic Run Lottery

For those of you who have PM'ed me already and will be.
I will respond to the group as a whole once we have all of the details from everyone and have decided exactly how to make this happen best.

I would like to let everyone know early next week, the earlier I get info from everyone the easier it will be to accomplish this.

Michael

Re: Epic Run Lottery



I know what I am getting myself into John. We will see how it goes, either way, I hope it to be a lot of fun.

Alex, After your "episode" last year I might accept your "bribe" to be on the list. It would have to cover me being by the rest of the group.

Doug,

Scott knows where he sits at the moment, and I suspect his fingers are crossed.

Opie, You are probably right, your rig is built for short term abuse in rocks, not loooooong drawn out trecks through the dust

Indeed.
I trust others opinions, so long as they have faith in mine. I just want to have some fun like everyone else.

Michael and I have agreed, the only way to know is to show up and play it by ear.

Re: Epic Run Lottery

Michael are we talking the monster trek from last year? i.e. hills, snow, mud, rocks, and the tight windy trails
