Just curious - request your feedback

I do not want to suggest or insinuate anything . This is simply out of curiosity when I ask you guys and gals if you would even consider attending a ride or event for JKOwners members.

Understand: There are no plans for jack-squat at this time.

No one but me has even considered ANYTHING on the topic , to my knowledge.

Let me repeat; there is truly - at this time- no topic or gathering at all which this pertains-to.

I was simply wondering to myself today if there were to be a ride or get-together planned for Summer or Fall of 2020,would people consider attending and what any of the criteria surrounding something like that might entail (geo-location, logistics, ride, safety, et.al).

This is not in any way sanctioned or related to the management of JKOwners or Pirate4x4 or verticalScope . This is j3ff3ry_j33p asking for your response to such a question only.


If there were a JKOwners gathering - for any reason - in Summer or Fall of 2020 would you consider attending?

What would some of the criteria be that would have to be in-place for you to make such a journey?
What is considered mid-point location-wise?
Is deciding such a thing even viable?

Would it be better suited for a centralized location, East or West coast?

I am just mulling around idears,gang.
Nothing more.


I will admit all the drama and sh*t lately has me sort of wanting some outside-the-box thinking for this place.

Maybe it's just that I sorta feel like someone needs to open a dang window in here, for sure.

As always, i appreciate and will enjoy all responses about this.

I would consider it, but invalid poll. No bacon option.

A midpoint geographical location might be hard to achieve but a destination location is definitely achievable...where a place like Moab makes sense even for the east coasters who travel that way in droves every year not just for events like EJS. It provides a change of scenery for most and of course has great off-roading for all classes of OHVs. Basically I知 saying make it close to me so I can show up

I値l be in Moab this coming weekend actually, explored some last year and did Hell痴 Revenge, looking to try some different trails this year and keep building up experience out there. But would really like to fall into a group of local (CO) off-roaders, definitely been pushing my luck going solo out here.

I humbly bow to both your abilities and the same stupidity I possess, regardless of the skill or gear for safety , we have if we opt for trying our luck by crawling alone. I don't miss it.

I got very lucky and am in a great,experienced family of die-hard ,hardcore trailriders that I call family. You gotta find a group to hang and go with.



at any rate, you have my respect ...I devised a fairly cool self spotting camera setup plus carried full recovery and chainsaw/lifesaving crap and even a helmet, but nothing beats a group w/ experience, you're right to seek that out. Maybe ask in here?

Unless you come to southern Arizona I wouldn't make it. Don't feel like punishing the jeep by driving it to Moab and then home again.

The non-existant location for this non-event sounds like a non-starter.
I'd say you've hit the mark.
Where is more of a question than when. I can say yes to just about any date, but I wouldn't drive to Utah...the Appalachians offer plenty enough for this Yankee, for now.

I was halfway between "would consider" and "undecided", so I defaulted to "bacon"

In theory, it'd be great but, due to limited time off (and other weak excuses), I really doubt I'd do a multi-day road trip for it.

I知 intrigued and would absolutely be interested.
The deciding factor would be location and amount of travel involved.

I think it'd work much better as 2 separate eastern or western u.s. events

I agree.

I'm limited to pretty much the SE corner of the country. It's 11 hours straight North just to get to AOP for me.

If traction picks up on event or no event, maybe a secondary, location poll is in order.

Moab is great for stragglers, I was able to tag along with others (even one other that was solo/shared stupidness) hitting the trail on both occasions last year, looking to do the same this weekend. But yes I need to fall into an off-road group so I can stop avoiding the harder trails here in CO.

Dual locations seems to be popular...can probably take a wild stab where my vote would be for the western region ride

I think that AOP would be great for the eastern event as it is 14 hours south for me, and 11 North for you.

I could try to get Matti to commit to a 2020 date, but he will likely bitch out just like every time I try to get him to wheel locally on crown land which is free to ride on.

Well, I for one learned how awesome + carefree one can experience trails when you've transported the Jeep to wherever. Sure it's towing a station wagon but it's a stationwagon that I don't have to worry about getting me home anymore. My days of being all about " dual purpose Jeep" went out window w/ my 1st tow to the trailhead ride.

I need to trade my Unlimited for a 2 door....
but I'd tow her out , Gunny.

This , Adventure Off-road Park or Superlift Off Road Park in
Hot Springs ,Ak would be my central of country sggstns.

The only alternative I thought of - for a central location - would be Holy Cross trail system in S.Central Colorado. It maybe too difficult for this type of gathering,tho....

Good feedback so far ...I think this would be cool.


What about a West and East Coast pair of get together , joined by live streams ? Too much , I know ...I dream big and nerdy....

did not know AOP was that far from you ,dude. Still, if any park is worth that drive time , it'd be AOP...it's the best.



Wolf Caves in Texas is pretty popular but I think that'd be a haul for anyone not in Texas . Even some of them it'd take half a day just to drive across that state it's so vast.

Yup.
That's partly ( mostly) why I preceeded the topic with " this is speculative only ..." since THIS subject is our greatest impediment. That's why I figured 2020 or 2021 ; set that far in advance MIGHT make it feasible if we ask for sabaticalsor enough in advance.
We could tell our jobs well in advance that we need to attend a memorial for Wire Nuts departing again or an Angry Red Bird we knew ....

Yeah man, it's quite a haul. Par for the course building rock crawlers while living in South Florida though. Chocco in Alabama is pretty fun as well and has a nice camp field at the base but AOP is like a ramped up version of it. I consider both of them playgrounds of trails and obstacles. Versus all day trails that I hear about at windrock (never been).

Either way, will be a cool undertaking if successful.

I decided years ago that the jeep would stay in southern Arizona for the trails. In turn that got me my first challenger which in turn got me my hellcat so I am content with staying local.

of course, you clearly see the logical next course-of-action for you; it is right before our eyes.

So, the Hellcat power-plant will be going in the JK when?

I do know someone who knows about that Molotov cocktail thing. Filling out the police report saying damm all they took was the motor and transmission, that is odd. Doing a burnout as I leave the scene.
