I've been in touch with Mary at RC about setting up an A/O club-only guided run in November. This is along the lines of the Adventure rides they are setting up, and would be an autumn-themed run. Mary sent me a message indicating "There is a trail on a "guide only trail" that leads to this absolutely gorgeous overlook . . . perfect for a fall ride." I discussed November dates, Saturdays. Nov 17th would be best for scheduling a guide, November 24th (Sat after Thanksgiving) would also work. It will be easier to get a guide on the 17th since its getting into hunting season.

Cost would be park fee plus guide fee, and she does not think RC accepts passes for the guided rides. So $35 for vehicle, $7 (I think) for passenger, if all are already members. Plus the club members going would split the $125 guide fee. Assuming we get a decent sized group, this is a lot less than the $99 they charge for the Adventure rides like the coal mine tour I'll be taking my son on this Sunday when the rest of you are doing blues and blacks.

So, who would be interested in going either on Nov 17 or Nov 24 (please indicate preferred date or indicate either would work), and what level of run (greens only or maybe add some blues)? But keep in mind that if anyone wants to go who has a stock or newer jeep I would suggest we stick to greens so everyone who wants to come can enjoy all of the day.

I forgot to mention about the date - 10 Nov is Jeeps in the Vineyard, and I'll be out of town on the 3rd, plus RC has another tour going that day. That's why I was looking at dates later in the month.

Later in the month hopefully will work for me. Soccer should be finished by then. I'll mark those dates on my calendar in Nov.

I'm also leaning towards Nov 17. If this date sounds OK, I'll send Mary a check for the $125 guide fee and whoever goes up can split the cost with me then. I'd say divide by number of vehicles, not number of drivers + passengers. We'll all be on our own for driver/pasenger fees.

Any preferance on green only or add in some blues?

I had Mary sign us up for a guide for Nov 17.

At some point we will need to decide on a start time. SInce I'm looking to make this a day trip, probably caravan up from the Old York Rd Park n Ride that morning, getting to the exit 104 Exxon around 0830, and be checked in at RC and ready to go sometime 0900-0930. But we will need to decide on a start time so I can let Mary know when to have the guide there. Plenty of time, ride is still 2 months off.

Also, since this ride is not one of the "adventure Rides" like the coal mine tour, we will be able to use any RC passes any of you have. So I have a 5-day pass with 4 visits left, I'll use that. Some of you may have passes given out when you volunteered you time for events at RC, etc.

Options for the trails are green/hard greens, or some blues can be added (they usually have a green bypass). We will need to make a decision on this, as stated before I don't want to scare anyone off.

Roll-cage, there is a very good chance that I'm going to RC, you could tag along with me if you want.

Mary at RC knows it crashed my jeep this past weekend. I sent her a message to let her know this ride is still on. Think I'll be looking for a used XJ, maybe will have one then. Or I suppose I could bring my wife's GC, but would need to add hooks and stick to easy greens.

So Mary at RC is letting me use the $99 from the coal mine tour (I was heading up for when I killed my jeep) as a credit against our guide in November. I plan on giving Kyle a check for the other $26 at the Tread Lightly class next weekend. Since I had already figured the $99 was spent, I don't need to get any money from anyone for the guide. But if anyone going on the ride would like to contribute $5 or $10 maybe we could give to Mary as an early club donation for the Wounded Heroes day fundraiser for WWP. I figure maybe she could use now to offset expeneses for that event or it could go into the RC donation to WWP in May. Just a thought.

I know we're still a month out on this. Looks like we will have up to 8 vehicles interested so far (if Mudslinger and OC bring both jeeps). This does not include Roll Cage driving (sounded like coming as a passenger was more likely). I'm guessing that vehicle count will be important for planning which trails we will use - if our group gets too large, there may be some trails RC would like us to avoid. Also - Forrest was the only one who responded to this point - I would like to have some blues worked in with green bypasses. I'll be ready for some blues (this will be first off-road run for my new jeep) and I know many of you who said they are planning on coming do blues (and blacks), but I don't want to scare anyone off.

Haha well if you recall seeing the video of me wheeling it in centralia with some members of the club i proved that it could at least keep up with 4WD rigs through some strategic driving and use of L gear lol!
