Winter Trail Ride + Meet & Greet (Vermont) - Feb 23rd
On February 23rd, GMC4x4.com is going to host their first local event (all makes & models are welcome)!! http://www.gmc4x4.com/public/style_e...default/10.gif
AA1PR (also a member here) is currently working on the map and discussing open/closed road with the Forest Service. Once the map is finalize, we're post it up here for you guys to review.
What's the plan for the day?
- quick lunch at a local Vermont eatery
- trail ride (Class III - IV roads)
- recovery demonstration & short class (depending on experience level of group)
- dinner + drinks http://www.gmc4x4.com/public/style_e...ervezat2uo.gif
This will be a fun day of meeting members from GMC4x4 and other forums (i.e. ExpeditionPortal!), driving through the beautiful back woods of VT and even some more challenging terrain for modified trucks. After the trail run, we'll head for dinner & drinks to catch up, relax and swap stories.
- front & rear recovery points
- 4 wheel drive
B/c the standard course for this trail ride can be done simply with 4 wheel drive, the requirements are minimal and I will have extra hitch pins on hand to create a rear recovery point for guys with OEM bumpers. For trucks that want to venture into the more difficult terrain, I recommend a lift, taller tires (33" min) and body armor. The trucks will be spaced so their is a rig with a winch nearby should you get stuck.
If you plan on attending, please RSVP on the Calendar (registration is free) - http://www.gmc4x4.co...-greet-vermont/
