Winter on the Rocks

Post by Ty on Wed Oct 17, 2012 5:24 am

Just thought I would post up and see if there is any interest in getting a group together to go down to the WOTR in St. George. I haven't talked to the wife yet so it is currently in thought mode.

From the website it looks to be a big event, can't say I'm a fan of huge weekend events with a TON of rigs. Done Easter Jeep Safari once and I doubt I'll do it again. This would be a nice break from the cold and snow up here though...

It's not near as big as EJs. You should go!

what are the dates? I'm planning on going. I've been to crawlfest in the past, and it was an absolute blast. And I avoid EJS due to crowds too. Just make sure you're at the front of the group on a run and it'll be way more fun. It sucks to be in the back.

Sweet. Which rig will you be in? I'd love to run a trail with you, but I don't want to do anything over a 6 in this runner. I've done west rim and sliplock gulch in the past, and I found them to be fun.

I dunno if I'm getting old or what, but I really live for the exploring more than the rocks these days. I'm going to try to come in to St. George via a backcountry route and camp out along the trail. Anyone's welcome to join me and my wife on the trip in.

We'll also be camping, we're too poor for a hotel, and we like the outdoors too much to sleep in a building when we're on vacation. Not sure where we'll be camping yet, but y'all are welcome to join us for that.

I'll flat tow my 1st gen down there. I like the camping idea as well. I'm trying to get my brother-in-law, father-in-law, and one more guy to join us from Vegas. They're some cool cats...Smile

I'm with you on the less difficult trails. As you already know I'll most likely be selling my 1st gen and moving into a more street-friendly 3rd gen in the Spring.

I'm starting to have second thoughts already. I figure I can plan a trip to Sand Hollow on the same trails with far fewer people. If I had a more capable rig I'd be all over it, that place would be so much fun in a buggy.

Or maybe I'll just make my own route there and not follow the group. The only trail my rig can do is the super busy one...

I put a bug in my bosses ear, I MAY be able to swing this.

I'm with steve. I'm starting to second guess. I would like to run the trails but my rig isn't built for the big ones and if the ones I can run are crowded I would rather plan a trip to Sand Hollow and run the same trails without the crowd.

I've been wanting to get down there with my truck for awhile, so if we don't do WOTR, we need to plan another trip.

I want to go ride Gooseberry Mesa again too.

I don't care where we go or what trails we run - I just like being out there using the rig for what it was built.

I'm down. In fact, a few MTB buddies are planning a trip to Gooseberry on Nov 16-17th.
