If anyone wants some grins... read this thread ive started:
Back to the topic. I plan on going to the trail in a week or so. They just got like 2 feet of fresh snow up there last week, and I want most of it to melt off before I drive up there.

Everyone here on the board knows all to well the bashing we as subaru owners take just for owning roo's. I would love to come out and give a hand and see you guys make it. It sounds to me like the biggest problem would be getting stuck and blocking the trail, thats when the tempers seem to flair. I wonder if any of those who are bashing would vollunteer to be a guide for since they posted the leader should have at least completed the con once. Maybe they would offer up a seat for one of you to ride the trail with them some time this summer to help train or show the best lines?
Good Luck and be safe....

Screw the naysayers. I'm betting if you told these pirate guys that we've taken groups of completely stock 80's Soobs thru some of Evans Creek's most difficult trails, they'd say you were full of ish.
Not only can I say that they'd be wrong, but, I can produce video from 1998 of us doing it. (we just about wore out 2 come-a-longs, our backs, and our clutches, but we made it.)
Here's the deal. The Mighty Rubicon is a trail, not a rock climbing competition. We'd be foolish to even show up for a rock climbing competition except to spectate.
We've done our homework. I have aranged a guide. It is a Nevada based extreme 4X club. On their website, the photos show them with one rig's front tires sitting on top of another rig's hood, while the other 3 wheels are still on the ground. Never mind which club. The point is, these guys drive monsters, are very familiar with the Rubicon, and would love to guide us thru and yank us over what we can't do.
At any rate, we'll have all the spare parts we need, welders, tools, winches, whatever. <strong>We are not new at this.</strong>
As for the pirate board, they'll flame each other for not having 44's or for only having a stock transfer case, crap like that. We got no business over there on that board talking any kind of ish to them. Untill you can produce photos of Soobs completing the "mission", this should be somewhat kept under wraps.
In the end, there will be far more cheers for us than jeers, we're gonna be a definite crowd favorite. Succeed or fail. We just gotta have a good attittude, and not an arrogant one.
Brians, a recon trip would be extra useful. After this last outing with us, the Junkie probably has an idea of what we're gonna be capable of. But, the way I see it, we're committed. It's like sitting at the bus stop and constantly checking your watch and the schedule to see when the bus is gonna get there. Won't help you, you won't get on the bus till you get on the bus. "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it."
So, if you have doubts, keep them to your self. If you think you have pertinent information, or some kind of way to get around a problem you see for us, please give us what you got.
If you're not gonna be there, you got no business bitching or pointing fingers at weakness <strong>or</strong> getting on other boards and talking smack to the big rigs. Let the folks who are gonna take part in this deal with what's gonna happen.
Done ranting. |I

Hey Ken the picture Mallero posted is off one of the Hatches here in Jersey, out in the Pine Barrens. The Mallero guy always supported us out on the trail, never had a bad word about our subies and pulled my butt out a few times.

I'll take my Trusy rally Justy up the RubY!! Let's see if I can get it running again by then!!
I can do... 'I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,.....'
I'll see if my father wants to go. He's got a truck that'll make short work of the Ruby, he'd be a great go-pher-st...
95 Toyota Sequia. Baja long tavel suspension, Lockrite F, ARB R, 33/16 Mickies, custom bumpers F/R/SS, Nerf's, 13'000lbs winch and more. I dunno what else I'm forgeting, I helped him build it. Now I compete against it.
I've yet to ever beat it. It's destroying hummers on the swamp swimmers.
His new toy is a 03 4Runner. Maybe I can take the Sequia for agood price Anyone wanna help me get it?
PS: He didn't keep the 03 4Runner stock for a week, got the 3rd day they were available to canada. Go figure.
