    October 6-7, 2018 | Oregon | Cline Buttes & Rim Butte

    When: October 6-7, 2018
    Meeting Time: 11 am
    Meeting Place: North Barr Trailhead, Cline Buttes OHV Park, 44.288193, -121.336060 (apprx)
    Destination: Central Oregon - Cline Buttes OHV Park & Rim Butte OHV Park

    Permits Required: Oregon ATV Sticker
    Communication: HAM radio (446.460) unless we must roll back
    Vehicle requirements:
    • Suggested 35' tires or greater, front/rear lockers and a winch.
    • Skid plates and armor highly recommended.
    • A FULL SIZE SPARE!!! preferably one that matches your other tires!! Means to change a flat tire, even if that is the stock bottle jack and tire iron (make sure your tire iron fits)
    • TOW POINTS FRONT AND REAR!!!, and knowledge of where they are.


    Maps/Resources:


    Rim Butte is a new area created to challenge those that are bored with Crushers. lol It's exclusively Black/Most Difficult and a new even harder Red/Extreme. The plan is to go check it out. Find some challenging trails that we can handle without too high a risk of body damage. Maybe see some buggies do some crazy stuff. We'll hit Cline Buttes harder areas as a warm up since it's on the way. Camp at one of the two parks. Plans are WIP to be narrowed down by those that decide to join.

    October 6 plan:
    • Late start so some people can leave Portland are a rational time.
    • Trail plan: Try and hit as much of 16, 14, 17, and 34 as time will permit.
    • Maybe something like 37 -> 49 -> 27 -> 16 -> 14 -> 17 -> 32 -> 27 -> 34 ->37?
    • Camp: TBD on camping at Cline Butte or Rim Butte. Need to do more research on Rim Butte.

    October 7 Plan:
    • Setup at Lodgepole Staging area (43.63901, -121.14020 apprx)
    • I hear the 41/44/45 should be fun and doable with only 35s.


    Who's Coming:
    • Vinnie (LJ on 35s with body armor)
    • Rodney (LJ on 35s with body armor)
    • Juan (TJ on 35s)
    • Biff (Wagoneer on 35s) - Rim Butte only
    • Brad


    Maybe:
    • Andrew

    There is no best vehicle. It depends on the terrain, tires, driver, luck, and lots of happenstance.
