This is the rally point thread, but to see the rally point page, click the yellow bar in the first post of this tread. :wink:
I've been trying that and to no avail.
After posting that last comment I did a copy and paste, what do ya know but I was taken to the rally point page. I've finally RSVP'd looking forward to meeting all of you and breaking-in (but not breaking) my X

I've been informed that while this trail is doable in a stock vehicle, the puddles can get quite deep in some areas especially after it rains. I am making plans to go, but I am still driving in stock height and will have to make a decision closer to the weekend of the trip to see if there's been any significant rainfall prior.

@xnooby63 Are there bypasses around the water holes or shallower lines through them?

@DRJ I personally don't like going through deep water or mud in my vehicles either, that is just a maintenance nightmare. I'm not against turning around if I encounter something I'm not willing to subject my Xterra to so some of us can re-route and then re-group at camp. Flexibility is key when overlanding anyways!

If I go I'll be in my Tundra as well and I won't mind bird-dogging it for ya. Have a CB?
I had a set of CBs that I can't find. :-/ And always good to roll with other Tundras. However, the odds of me going have dropped significantly. Busted the steering rack on the truck which is getting replaced this week. And the family may have made weekend plans which I would be the designated chauffeur. I'll have to update my RSVP later in the week after I know more.

Btw, are you hitting up the Toyota Appalachian Roundup event?

Hey guys, I bumped into @witchdoctor_33 the other day and he mentioned he's got a buddy wanting to come along and I've got a friend who's gonna be coming along as well. I was wondering if anyone else has some friends coming along in their own rigs as well. We've only got 5-6 rsvp'd at this point so I'm curious about our total numbers.

Good chance I will NOT be able to make it. Will update my RSVP by Wednesday if I can't go.
