Yacht Club: March 4th-March 6th
« on: January 03, 2016, 11:05:48 AM »
After much consideration and more peer pressure than I've received in my entire life, I've finally been pressured into running some more trips.

This will be a Friday-Sunday trip, starting Friday around lunch and lasting until Sunday around lunch.

Quick info:
Dates: 11AM Friday, March 4th - 12PM Sunday, March 6th
Starting location: Near Dover, AR
Ending location: Near St. Joe, AR
Trip Adventure: A scenic venture through the Ozark Mountains of Central and Northwest Arkansas. Experience sweeping vistas, pin-striping, cozy campfires, delightful brand *cough*comparisons*cough*, and some terrain worthy of national recognition. We will cross the Buffalo river at Woolum, pending water levels.
Route Difficulty: Easy with difficulty based on current water levels. A good driver can do it with a stock vehicle and good tires. (We always recommend extending breathers and a set of sliders)
Tightness: Its Arkansas. Trails will be tight and pinstripes will be common. That said, this route will be focused on allowing some of the bigger vehicles in. We cannot guarantee a pin-stripe free ride, though we will TRY to keep it that way for everyone.
Vehicle Requirements: Frame mounted recovery points. 31" tires of aggressive nature.

I faded off of these trips because donations had lapsed. I'm going to offer a few this spring and if they take off like they have in the past, will most likely continue. (I enjoy these trips but when out of pocket expenses aren't met it is extremely difficult to devote funds and such towards them)

It should be noted that participants in the Overland Challenge Series are welcome on this trip.

Vehicle limit (first come, first served):
1.)EJ
2.)T4R
3.)
4.)
5.)
6.)
7.)
8.)
9.)
10.)

I'm in for this one. Sound's like the terrain won't scare the crap out of my wife so I'll probably have the family along.
