    Was out scouting some of trails this morning. Spring flood is underway. Basecamp is high and dry.

    I believe we have 70 bikes and a dozen or so trucks signed up so far. We'll be closing registration at the end of the month. Should make for a fun weekend/week. Working on the various routes, three one day routes of varying length and two 2 day routes. One is a loop into Quebec and the other is a loop up to the south end of Algonquin Park. There is also two "wheeling" routes...but based on the rigs that have signed up I doubt they'll get driven. The other routes are stock friendly and a mix of trails and backroads.

    Cya in May

    Looking forward to the trails again!

    Hi Theo, I have the all terrain shocks with a 2 inch level installed in them as well as one inch Bora spacers sitting, collecting dust in my garage. This combo let's you run 32 inch tires. I also have a black soft topper for a shortbed.

    Just in case your twitching to spend your tax return

    Sweet, always good to see other Torontonians! Not enough of us vocal about this hobby online. Makes sense I guess when every decent trail is 3hrs away lol

    I recently signed up with Durham 4x4 club as heard good things, will be doing some runs with them hopefully in May/ June

    With regards to build, no sir, mine too uneventful/slow for anyone to enjoy haha

    We should touch base sometime before event, maybe grab a pint or something

    Hey Ted, I'll shoot you a message/email about that. Sorry for hijacking the thread with our chat

    I was wondering why no update in such a long time..
    Looks like lotsa fun! You should find time to tell the whole story one day.
