SummerFest Run Planning

#1

Post by Cnynrat » Fri Jul 25, 2008 6:01 pm

We are looking for volunteers to organize and lead runs or to be tail gunners at SummerFest. We'd like to see runs at a variety of difficulty levels so everyone can find a run that fits their vehicle capabilities and experience level.

I think the best way to organize this is for anyone who wants to volunteer to lead a run to set up a new topic in this forum where people can learn the details of the run and sign up if they are interested. I'm afraid if we try to organize multiple runs in one topic we'll quickly have mass confusion. So if you are interested in leading a run, please create a new topic in this area with a brief description.

I'd suggest you provide the following information about your run:

Trail Name(s)
Date/Time - We should have runs on Friday afternoon, Saturday, and Sunday. 1/2 day or all day runs will work.
Meeting Location - If it's convenient to the trail you are running you might consider using the intersection of 3N09 and 3N16 as a meeting area - it's a big wide open space.
Difficulty/Special Requirements - Difficulty rating and advice about minimum vehicle requirements
Highlights - General description of the run with any interesting highlights

As you think about planning your runs be aware that some popular trails are still closed from the fires last year. These include Holcomb Creek, Butler Peak, and others. Complete information is available on the SBNF website.

So what's up, is anyone planning on running any trails, or are we all just going to hang around camp all day?

Maybe gas is too expensive to actually do any wheeling? :mrgreen:

I plan on doing John Bull and Gold Mountain but didn't post up because I cannot edit the thread sufficiently to post maps, run times, equipment recommendations attendees and keep them up to date, etc.

I'd be more than happy to lead Gold Mountain but I was hoping somebody with 37's and a solid axle would lead JB. :mrgreen:

Scott - I suggest people start their own thread for any run they want to lead or open up to others. I think you can edit that (or at least your own post). If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll figure something else out.

I can make the change tonight but right now only moderators or admins can add a thread to this forum.

Well that may explain why everyone is being so quiet. :D

I'd like to find a way for people who want to volunteer to lead a run can start and edit a planning thread for their own run. If you could make that happen I'd appreciate it!
