Haven't been on the forum for quite some time, but it's been huge fun reading this thread on BSW. I live in St George, and though I have other commitments during BSW (!) if I can be of any assistance with "local information", just ask. Might be able to join ya'll the first few days.

Any recommendations of where in Hurricane to look for a vacation rental? I Know in Moab I usually grab a place in Spanish Valley, is there somewhere similar in Hurricane.

Been daily driving my truck lately so everything is more or less running fine, I just need to re-sort my toolbox, and redo my aux lighting/radio setup in the next month.

We got a place at the resort really cheap

Working on a proposed trail schedule for this year. As always, it's a suggestion and the daily preference of the group can override this - if people want something easier, harder, different, etc.

Thursday is an open day this year, so groups can choose a day at the lake, or others do some trails, others play tourist, etc. Friday is a trail that was scheduled for last year but couldn't be started, and is the trail choice most likely to change.

Read about the trails and trail ratings. A 6 challenges a stock H3, and a 7 challenges a lightly built H3 (i.e. my H3 with a lift and front/rear lockers). Most obstacles in Sand Hollow State Park have obstacles and a trail rated a 6 might have 8+ rated obstacles on it, with varying options ranging from 4-8.

Please provide any feedback you may have and any recommendations or requests.

TrailsRating
Sunday, March 31West Rim5-6
Monday, April 1Sliplock Gulch6, with tough optionals
Tuesday, April 2Tocquerville Falls and Rattlesnake Gulch2 and 7
Wednesday, April 3Wayne's World6
Thursday, April 4Open
Friday, April 5Michael's Loop4

When we run Wayne's World can we cut across and run the chute? It runs real close to the chute.
I was looking at that possibility also. Another possibility is on the open day Thursday. I am open to whatever.
1. Run it how we did last year and run straight to the Chute and back and have a short day to still run around town
2. Run Double Sammy with the Chute and make it a full day.
3. Add the Chute to Wayne's World on Wed.

Any of those options work. I was looking and Wayne's World is real close, just don't know how big the obstacles are between them.

I have to try out the Garmin Tread and see if it works better than my cell phone.

Obstacles will be minimal, we took part of Wayne's World last year to get to the Chute. We came from the Sand Dune Hwy to the left. Wayne's World looks like the intersection is at the star in the middle running S to N. The intersection we would make a right and the Chute would be @ 1,000 feet.

Did you start a solid axle swap? Or unloading a big stash?

So I'm considering... do I lift my [censored] before black sheep week without trail-testing it first... or just bring it stock? I did Poison Spider on it just fine (with some great spotting, and a LOT of sliding). It's the rubicon so it's not super low, but its only got baby 33s on it right now. I do hesitate to mod something right before a week long offroading week... (Ignore that this question is not about a hummer LOL)

Do you have protection? (Insert sarcasm) Will help with lack of clearance and no testing needed.

Minimally, one needs good protection for Rattlesnake Gulch. Lots of river crossings with hidden boulders. Difficulty will depend on the height of the water.

I would like the Eaton rebuild kit, unless of course it’s the Sandhallow crews first Pickens.
