** UPDATED **
To include a Saturday run date. Sunday is almost full now with a few close friends and a couple tentative invites.
I'm going to be doing a run up old Mt. Sicker road trail this Saturday and Sunday with Ben to show him another trail in and out if the gate is closed.
There's room for a couple more capable stock or lightly modified rigs to join us and explore/wheel around somewhere you may not already be familiar with. If you already know your way round the mountain and you just want to come out for some fun that's cool too but we really don't want a large group to manage and we won't be catering to dedicated trail rigs or doing any extreme wheeling because we're both running lightly modified daily's. There are still plenty of opportunities for fun and hairy moments along the way if you're so inclined, just keep in mind our own recovery gear and equipment is limited at this point. If you have your own, great!
I would really like to specifically extend an invitation to the newer members or anyone else who is new to the area or isn't already acquainted with the trails there. I have lived here off and on for decades and I'm still discovering new things all the time in places I thought I'd already seen before thanks to going on local runs. If you're not familiar with the area and not too keen about exploring on your own then you are welcome to come along with some other moderately equipped vehicles and get your tires dirty with us. If the weather makes the top of the mountain to icy/snowy to safely travel then there are still plenty of places at lower elevations to go down on the Hillcrest side. It's a nice area to run due to it's central location and easy accessibility for most south islanders but if we get too many people showing up on this one it's going to turn in to a dirt caterpillar so preference will be given to those who are not already seasoned Sickers until we are up to a maximum of 5 rigs. :-P
If you are interested in going on this run, just post in this thread.
We will be meeting near Duncan around 10:15am for social and prep, then heading out around 10:30am for the trails.
If nobody else is on board by Friday I will just announce the exact meeting time and place here for whomever decides to show up on a whim.
In the meantime I will PM the meet-up details to anyone interested until we're maxed out so we don't end up with a flash mob scenario.
If you have any FM 2-way radio such as an FRS/GMRS or a VHF/UHF please bring it as we will be coordinating via radio on the trail.
Cheers & happy trails!
