I was wondering if anyone would like to try a walker run for March 15th.
I put it out about a month so that way everyone will have fair warning about it coming up. I hope that there are a few people that would like to come up for it, or down for that matter. I'm sure that I could say Will and I are in, Although I haven't asked Will about it yet, But Scott, Rollie,Rob, Kenny and maybe a few other northerners would like to come down to romp around in my neck of the woods. Zap and Qman It would always be nice for you guys to come up too, but it is a long drive I understand. Jess (slideshow86) if you want to come too this is a good time, If you have any trouble up here I think there are enough parts to get you going again.I'll even offer up some shop space if anything happens.Anyone who would like to come, come on down. Maybe we can even get Todd out for this.

Count me in. I just downloaded a DNR map of the area.
The map is from 2006 and somewhat incomplete, however, it is the best one I could find.

If anyone has a newer, more complete version of this map; please post a link. Thanks


I'll be sure to invite some of my Toyota buddys, as they're always :rolleyes: very entertaining to watch :rolleyes:.

Oh, how they do try so very hard!:Flame:

Are those Widcats that you got on there right now? If they have some decent tread left on them I think they would do the trick. My buddy Brian went up there with, almost bald 30's and he went everywhere. As long as there is a fair amount of tread I wouldn't worry about it.:cool:

The last time I went to Walker I had Wildcats. I had an incredible overheating problem, and an even more incredible camber issure. All due to my own ignorance :grin: of course. But the Wildcats performed just fine.

I'll bring an extra rear axle just in case, It can be the "Crew axle" cause all of us w/ the gen 2's know one of us is going to need it.:rolleyes: I might even bring 2 extras. and I'll have a front one at my house If anyone needs one for the drive home.:grin:

After the weather today, I'm sure hoping it is nice for this trip.

:brow: Not that I dislike some tacky mud to play in. :brow:

It would just be nice to see some sunshine.

Now that I think about it, I've never been to Walker when the sun was shining.
