    I'm hoping to make it this year. Hopefully I'll be on something bigger than 31s by then. I'd be coming down with a group of local friends who will be on 36"+ tires for Spring Fling, so I'll probably stick with the GSE crew for the wheeling.

    So not only have there always been quite a few east coast guys on here but there seems to be an influx of guys signing up and posting a lot over the last few months. However, no one's posting up or even showing interest in GSE. So what's the deal? We did have a better turn out last year than the past few but what gives? To be honest, I think we had more grands in Sept than in June last year.

    Anyway, its always a good time and bigdogs is always a great place to wheel and party.

    So..........Who's ready and who's almost ready? I'd also like to hear what everyone wants to run. Years ago we had 3 groups. "Stockers", intermediate, and advanced. We haven't had an advanced group in years and we usually only have 3-4 in the intermediate group. And I say "stockers" b/c its much more than stock.

    Yes, I will be there....intermediate. So Beerman, get your shit together and guide!

    So what...running with the grands are second choice to you. I figured that would be one of the major attractions of coming to this event!

    It would be nice to have some new faces here this year. Along with all the old ugly mugs as well!

    It's a damned if I do, damned if I don't type thing. I'll get shit from my friends if I go down there and don't wheel with them. I'll get shit from y'all if I go down there and don't wheel with you

    I'll be locked F/R on 4.5" LAs by then.

    Put me in for intermediate. If I'm on 33s by then I'd be interested in doing advanced if that is considered large enough. If "advanced" is meant for buggy type setups on like 36"+ tires, then I wouldn't want to be a trail plug.

    We haven't had an advanced group in years. But the advanced runs would be tough on 33's. There are plenty of buggys on ~40's that I see run the trails that our advanced group would run and lets just say they loose a tire here and there in some of the holes that present themselves on the trail.

    Ah OK. I just wasn't sure how crazy "advanced" really was.

    Intermediate sounds just fine to me

    So I take it that those attending will be paying the "ridiculous" fee of $10 to camp there for the weekend?

    Keep going...it's $25 that's listed on the site but I know I paid $27 a couple weeks ago at icebreakers. That's if you pay cash. If you use a credit card when you get there...it's a $2 (I think) fee that they charge you as well.

    Yeah I can't friggin read anything today. I'm glad I'm not a newbie. I'd probably be flamed out the wazoo for the dumb posts I've made today

    The $10 is for kids under three feet tall. Still, I'm not complaining about paying $35...

    So I have another question

    What do we put down for the "Trail Choice" portion on the registration form? Looks like it's really only relevant for the spring fling folks, so is it safe to just put "GSE" in those boxes?

    Fuego...thanks for correcting me on the camping fee. Its usually 25 and was a couple weeks back so I thought you were quoting me and not the site.

    With the trail selection. If it will allow for text...sure, GSE in the boxes would be fine I guess. You're looking to run an intermediate type trail so if GSE won't work than I'd put like a 6 in each of the boxes. They need to get more guides for the 5-7 runs anyway. They just use that as an idea on how many will be there and how many guides they need for what.

    Diesel...good to have you.

    I signed up a few days ago but am also going with a group of at least 3 or 4 TJ's. I haven't been on this site in a while and have never been to Big Dogs. Guess I'll see you guys out there.

    I'm a maybe, not sure if I'd be taking the ZJ buggy or the samurai, probably whichever is destroyed less at the time!

    Those pictures were from the trail Big Dogs calls "INSANITY" - I don't care how big or how good of a driver you are, you're not taking a Grand with sheet metal through there... That was on my run with Black List Wheelers Association, not the grand crew, but it was nuts! I think 3 vehicles of the 10 or so that were on that run drove out in one piece...

    Haha! Yeah I sorta figured that from looking at the pics. I supposed if someone did, there wouldn't be much sheetmetal left anyways!

    Preppi -- thanks for the info. I'll fill it out with the those ratings and submit it later today.

    DieselZJ and I will probably be heading down together (with others from Buffalo) on the Thursday before. Map says to go through Pittsburgh, so we might be able to meet up with peeps along the way if they are interested in convoying...

    If I'm going, I'm down for a convoy! I guess I should say I plan on going, just a matter of one of the rigs being wheelable at the time.

    You could bring me a bigrig car-hauler full of buggies, and with my luck, they'd ALL be disabled and/or destroyed by the end of the weekend!

    Only one fits on my trailer, probably only bringing one, but there is the possibility of having a friend drive the sammy down to have a spare, LMAO

    Thanks, Bruce! I just put "GSE Intermediate" in the trail selection boxes.

    Just paid via paypal and submitted my registration form. Once I get the confirmation e-mail, I'll be golden
