Well we are planning on closing for the day on Friday so the whole shop can go play. My kids have aims testing this week, so if they are done with it thursday they are going to get sick on friday and come along. Rolling Eyes Laughing and in that case I will bring the rail. If the kids are stuck in school I will be bringing the fasty. Cool

Is there gonna be a "go at your own pace" group on this outing, or is it gonna be a mini-baja-1000 like the last Bulldog night run I went on, where I spent the whole time stressed trying to keep up with the dust plume through the dark? (before it disappeared and I ended up lost and alone). Laughing

I won't be going crazy. I need to test my suspension out and not break the car. My wife would actually like it if it left Daryll's shop for more than a couple days, lol. I also had following dust clouds. Proper trail etiquette also says you stop at all intersections until the next person behind you shows up. Then they do the same thing. That way nobody takes a wrong turn.

The class 11 cars average 40 plus mph for the 1000. I'm lucky to get 25-30 mph average times on my small loops. Speeding into a dust cloud is not my idea of fun. Everyone needs to stay back. Just ask Dan Jones. One way to pace the ride is by letting the less experienced drivers and cars go first. On the run I did with the Arizona VW Club they had two groups the sight seeing and the faster group. Problem with that is we never saw the other group again. I suggest we stay as a group and tour the area. Is anyone bringing a grill?

i like that idea Perri, i talked to the rangers and they told me that the trail to Cove 1 is still open, so we could make that our first stop and have a nice bbq in the shade Cool

BRING CHAIRS! Very Happy

and yes this is going to be an easy going ride, we'll all stay together as a group and do a baja count every stop, we have someone joining us in a pickup with a CB radio, so if anyone has a CB we'll run one person in front and one person in the rear so we won't lose anyone.

What's the actual head count? I'm only a maybe at this point- depends on that darn work thingy. I wish my roof rack was on! I do have a small propane grill I could bring (if I make it). I like the sound of the pace too. I still haven't gotten my limiting straps bought/installed, but I think if I take it easy I'll be ok.

I'm thinking we should start a roll call thread with the meet up spot and time in the first post. This thread is getting a bit long.
