    Exclamation Must Read: Rules for Event Participation!!!

    Rules for Event Participation:


    1. Be Respectful
    Treat everyone well and be helpful and courteous. Tread lightly. Stay on the trails and pickup trash. It's a privilege to off road.

    2. Be Responsible
    No Drugs or Alcohol*. No guns*. Have fun but act responsibly. These events for the enjoyment of everyone!
    Camp Fires: If you start a fire you are responsible to keep it contained (safe), attended (don't walk away) and fully put out before you leave or go to sleep (soak it / bury it).
    Pets / Dogs / Kids... watch them. Be respectful of the people around you.

    3. Be Prepared
    We will work as team to get everybody through the trail and home at the end of the day, but you must be prepared. Below are mandatory requirements for your rig for EVERY TRIP. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Mandatory:
    1. Recovery Points FRONT and REAR - You can't attend a trip without this!!
    2. Shovel
    3. Fire Extinguisher
    4. Oil Spill kit
    5. Full size Spare
    6. Jack & Lug Wrench
    7. Looped Tow Strap (no hooks)
    8. Reliable Rig

    Suggested:
    1. Two recovery shackles
    2. Basic Tools
    3. Working knowledge of your rig & repairs
    4. Spare fluids
    5. Map of the area and / or GPS

    Fix your vehicle in the shop not on the trail. Don't bring out a truck that leaks or has reliability issues. Keep up on maintenance.


    4. Be Legal
    All vehicles must have insurance, license and registration. You must have valid, current Driver's License and Insurance. ATV permits are required in Oregon. Check for other state/location specific permits. Every trail location will have different required or additional permits such as NW Forest Pass. Please read all event requirements.

    5. Be Clean
    Leave trails and campsites cleaner than when you arrived. Pickup trash. We need to do our part to protect our trails.


    * No Guns: If you have a gun, keep it concealed or locked in your vehicle. There will be no shooting, show & tell or use of weapons during off road trips or while camping!
    * No Drugs or Alcohol: Never allowed on the trail or while driving. Having a beer at camp is not a problem. Please be respectful and responsible. No Marijuana. No other controlled or illegal substance use.


    These simple rules are for the enjoyment of everyone. Please stay home if you can't follow these rules. Feel free to post up if you have any questions or comments.

    I especially like rule #1 and 2. Nothing like wheeling with a some disrespectful person. Enough to ruin your whole trip.

    Just updated...

    1. You must have Valid, Current Driver's License and Insurance.
    2.
    Shovel, Fire Extinguisher or 1 Gallon Water.

    At least someone in the group needs to have a shovel. Everyone needs to carry either a Fire Extinguisher or 1 Gallon of Water. Some areas such as Tillamook State Forest require everyone to carry a fire extinguisher while some locations allow substitution for 1 gallon of water. This is especially important in the HOT summer months.

    Josh, I would recommend a ABC extinguisher! That way if you come across any type of fire you'll be good to go!!

    on fire extinguishers I would recommend the bigger the better and multiples....some of the small 5lb bottles won't go very far especially when you are watching your pride and joy go up in smoke
