I will most likely meet you Friday morning at the VT country store, that is about 2 hours from home for me.
I will be leaving Saturday evening for home, my wife has plans for Sunday that I can not get out of.
Do you have a rough number of attendees yet?

not sure yet. looking to gather one by the end of next week. been trying to keep it a little low profile, too many trucks would just be a pain.

Well fella's looks like I'm gonna do everything I can to make this trip.

I have a commitment for just about all day Friday.. but I plan on packing the truck before hand and bee-lining it straight to wherever you guys are camped at and will make it there sometime late Friday night for the duration of the trip.

Figured last year was too much fun, and if i can drive through the night to Maine, doing the same to VT should be no sweat.

Good news is I don't need to put racing fuel jugs on top of Chris's truck again. Now that I have a 45 gallon sub tank I think 70 gallons of fuel should do just fine. After all, my fuel range is now longer than what most land rovers engines last for :-P

Im in negotiations with my wife about me going , she is not too happy about me leaving again on another trip and she being stuck home with 3 kids , so I may have to compromise and take half , if this is the case I'll meet you guys for lunch on saturday in Bethel , and continue until monday morning .

So what's the attendee list looking like?

Chris. If you want to head up early Saturday I can do that. I could stay the night at my sisters in NY and meet you in route

That will work I live 5 miles of the NY thruway and I could be in the toll plaza for the Woodberry Commons outlet area in like 25min , rt287 passes by my town (oakland) and be in Bethel by noon time , my Disco still getting fix dont know what the ata on that is , plan B is take my F350 plan C is dont go at all , dont know how tight those trails will be even if I go my F350 , Im assuming someone is bringing a chainsaw to cut some shit out , I'll need some c4 to open a trail for the 350 .

if anything show up Friday morning and take off Saturday night or Sunday night. You won't want to miss Friday it will be the best day. attendance is looking pretty poor right now. Confirmed head count we have 4 trucks. even the NELRC VP can't make it because his truck needs a new exhaust manifold. 

I'm thinking of rescheduling this trip for the Fall, I thought Memorial Day would be good for a trip because it's less days people have to take off work but it seems as most people have other obligations because it's a holiday.

One of the guys I work with has taken his F250 on most of those trails. It is lifted a little with 35's on it, open/open.
Right now there has been very little for bugs out, it was cold until last week here. 2 weeks might make a big difference though.
This could be cross posted on DiscoWeb to scare up some more people on short notice?
I might be able to find more people to go with my local club and co-workers, they would be driving Jeeps or Toyota's.

Only one Toyota is allowed.....mine

We can't be having too much reliability. That would make the trip boring :-p

HAHA talked to Peter today we are talking of moving it to Sept 12-14. Would rather have a good showing of rovers and one idiot in a yota with a broken rear bumper than a real bix mix of trucks.

I'd be up for a September trip, gives me enough time to find another truck.

Not sure how the foliage will be then. Prob 3-4 weeks early

Not that it's a deal breaker. Just more as an FYI

whomever engineered that bumper must have done my entire range rover classic because they were nearly the same exact build quality. just fall apart in the parking lot types.

we picked that date looking at calendars for other events. will speak to him again today, but i think we are going to go ahead and move forward with the reschedule, if so it will be posted on the facebook pages and such.

Damn that sucks man. sorry to hear that. does that speed up your move to FL?

I'm with you Dan I wanted to wheel. I took off work Thursday and Friday months ago. 

I'm hoping everyone makes it out for the Annual in PA. I will lock down plans next week for that. Going to be insane.
