WOW...first post and gunned right down...LOL. It's true Black Betty, URE closes for the winter. But there are some trail clean-up dates prior to opening day that also allow for some wheeling. Check out the NCFJ facebook page for dates posted by Michael Thompson.

I'd be interested in a Saturday run. No chance to break and go wheeling during the week, unfortunately.

I may be interested. 

What is the norm and terrain there? I have seen YouTube but that's about it. I have limited experience off-road and none with my FJ as of yet. 

Are you guys starting easy and increasing difficulty or just go balls to the wall sort of thing? I want to become familiar with the trails and my FJ but maybe not in a crash course way and have to climb a 5 ft boulder (exaggeration). 

In all honesty can't wait to get out there with my 4 year old but don't want to get in over my head on the first ride. 

Setup:
12' FJ
3" toytec lift
ARB front & back with winch (no winch kit/ straps yet)
BFG ATs

The only trail there that is not stock FJ passable is Daniel. We will steer clear of that. It is getting a face lift on the 15th, but will probably still be avoided. Some of the other difficult trails are doable with stock FJ and even street tires. We would never put you in a position that is either unsafe, would damage your FJ or that you don't feel comfortable tackling.

The trails open Friday March 28, the exact time has not been announced.  The Jamboree a week later, on Saturday April 5th.

I'm planning to be at the Outpost around 1PM Friday the 28, just doing some of the easier trails, it would be great to have a trail buddy. 

Not sure yet about Saturday, that's my 39th wedding anniversary....
