There was talk at Ouray about expanding this to include a day of wheeling. There are some fun trails very close to where we camp. Even closer if the river is crossable. ;)

I would be game for showing up on Friday morning and going wheeling with folks. Camp friday night. Thanksgiving in the desert on Saturday.

We can decide on the trail based on the types of rigs. Or if there is a large number we can have a couple of trail rides.

Check out my gear ratio calculator

If you can't fix it with a hammer or duct tape you have an electrical problem.
