Could you please move this post to the trail ride forum? DOA has a huge... huge, HUGE raffle prize this year that is limited to a very small number of people.

THANKS Jarhead !!!!! DOA This year should be the largest. I'm looking forward to leading trail this year again, Since the Tight Twisty Trail has been logged I hope to spend a couple days in Turtle Ridge Gps-ing an actual trail in there that will be a good challenge instead of just poking around.

I'm thinking of signing up for this, the question I have is where does everybody stay and where is home base for the trip. Thanks in advance.

Trailhead Campground on the island is home base and the launching point for the trail rides, although you could stay at one of the other camgrounds/motels on the island if you wanted to. More details at https://www.facebook.com/msg4x4club and/or http://msg4x4club.ticketleap.com/doa2013/

What day?

I myself plan to head out straight from work Thursday. google maps says it's a 6:15 hour drive, so hopefully I can skate from work a bit early.

We are leaving on Thursday as soon as our daughter gets home from work. I should be all loaded and ready to leave at noon.

I was wondering what the plan for food during the day do we stop on the trail and eat or do we just grab some thing when we can. I was going to pack a cooler for the trail ride. Sorry for the questions but we are newbies and totally geeked to go.

You will want a to bring something to snack on or have for lunch on the trail. Usually in the middle of the day we stop for lunch.

any idea what the 2m simplex frequencies will be?

I'm going to try to program my radio ahead of time since it stinks using VFO mode, and I can never remember how to program on-the-fly.

For most GLFWDA events we use 147.470 for 2m simplex, but there should be some help available if the MSG folks have a different plan and you need to make a change.
