A few friends and myself where going to make a run to browns camp this Sunday so as per forum rules here is the information.
When: April 22, 2012 (Sunday)
Where to Meet: I'm thinking either the shell station on hwy 6, Browns camp or even rogers camp at the entrance not sure yet depends on who goes.
Meet Time: I'm not the early riser type so we usually meet about noon (could go a bit earlier depending on what people want to do) and wheel till we finish the trails or till it gets dark.
Permits Required:Oregon ATV Permit (available at the gas station)
Communication:CB would be nice
Vehicle requirements: 32" MT or aggressive AT tires in decent condition. Some is lift required. Reliable, Maintained vehicle. Make sure you have front and rear tow (recovery) points. Have a look at the vid's posted from last week and expect much of the same. I like to make sure every one makes it through ok with minimal risk but by the same token I don't really wanna drag a Subaru through FB5 so bring something capable of what your going to ask it to do.
Here's the trail plan: Id like to run "University fire power" (its better than gravel roads) to "fire break 5" (all but the last section full of trees) then onto saddle up and maybe entrance and exit gates of airplane hill but these are short and optional (the actual "airplane hill" looks like one tough momo). Usually finish up on archers fire break to "rocky up hill" then on to "can opener" and "water fall" but those will be real tough this time of the year so maybe bypass those and run a bit more archers depending on conditions.
Who's Coming: so far it's
Colby (truck very similar to mine)
Al (stock height 85 toy w/ 33's and a locker)
Todd (same as Al's truck)
and hopefully a few others just let me know if your interested. Most of the run is negotiable depending on what people really want to do.
