This would be a doubleheader in very different locations, right?

Elbe isn't happening anymore. We will be hitting Tahuya instead. You should come out seeing as it is in your back yard.

My mom will be in town that weekend and my plan, prior to this, was to take Friday off and spend the weekend in Auburn at my sister's house where she'll be staying.  It would be a bit ironic, but I might end up doing the convoy thing from Auburn with Chris and then just have a shorter drive home.  I'm tentatively planning to go but have some things to figure out.  I was thinking that it would be a great trip for the kids, but I think it may be more important to spend time with Grandma.

The run is up on Facebook and I have put out a bunch of invites to people letting them know they are welcome to invite anyone they know with less built rigs. So far no bites, but its still early.

It would make the perfect location for a trial run to test out all that hard work.  :turtle3:
Nothing wrong with a easy run to start things out.

I invited a coworker that has a nice built Toyota that really just needs the rear differential rotated and a new rear driveshaft and also a more mild Jeep.  He sounded interested.  I also invited the they guy I tagged on Facebook.  He drives a black 4Runner and has a friend with a yellow 1st gen truck.  I will make sure that he knows he can invite him as well.

The newly worked on trails appear to be challenging actually. There is talk of additional boulders placed on the trail as well.

I've run 11 rigs before. This isn't a free for all by any means and if we get to a certain number then I will start denying people. So please report back when you've got someone coming.

Ok please don't invite anymore people on your end then please. I usually don't like to run more than 12 and we are pretty much there with that list.
