Join me in a bulldog shake out run this Sunday 10am

Recommended Posts

After a few weeks of  working on the Jeep I am going to do a simple shake out run.

 

This Sunday at 10AM!

The weather should be nice.    

 

  We will enter in on 3554 and probably exit out  Fr10 on Bush.  If things are going well maybe head out to the Wolverine exit.   When we get to the play hill on 3554 I will probably do a few runs up and down it to see how my transfer case adjustments work.  

 

A permit is required, it's $6, lasts 6 months and is specific to the Bulldog Canyon area:  https://www.recreation.gov/vehiclepermits/3332401

 

  • Technical Rating: 2-3 (easy) if you exit off of Bush, I'd give it a 4 if we go South to Wolverine.   There is one tipsy spot going downhill that can be a little exciting. 

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A stock clearance 4x4 with a low range transfer case option, suitable front OR rear recovery point (trailer hitch is fine), stock tires.   (I've done this trail in a ZR2 our to Wolverine)
  • Rigs & drivers must meet all the typical state/federal legal requirements for on-highway vehicles (license, insurance, registration, seat belts, lights, etc.)
  • $6 permit per vehicle.  Each OPERATOR must have a permit, families can share a permit
  • This is a great trail for people with little to no experience.
  • Everyone must stay on the designated trails 

 

Radios:  Not required.   Ham on 462.700, CB or FRS all work for me.   Trail finding is easy and we'll keep you in our mirrors. 

 

Itinerary:

Meet up time will be 10:00 am at fr3554 trail head off of Usery Pass.   We'll air down (optional) and chat a bit. 

We'll stop at least twice to enjoy the view and chat.  I'll make some cheese crisps for anyone interested in a snack when we stop for lunch. 

At FR10we will head North to Bush Highway exit or South to Wolverine.  

The trail is about 7 or 8 miles long to Bush.  Wolverine is another 10 or so miles and takes another 45 or so minutes (we will stop less on 10). 

Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma.   

Bring something for lunch.  We'll stop for about an hour for lunch under the shade of some mesquite trees.

@Sparky 01 this would be a good one for you and the Mrs! It was the first trail I did at Bulldog Canyon. 

Hey Sarah I was actually thinking of joining you guys on this one. We did the run with Scott, Stacey and Will awhile back and we did not complete it up to Wolverine. I wanna go and I'm trying to convince the wife and daughter. You are bringing the girls right? I'm hoping that will convince my daughter to go! Finally got my lift kit, I am planning on installing it next weekend. I couldn't afford the kit you have but the reviews are really good on this one and it's adjustable so I can go higher in the future20220310_190503.thumb.jpg.8e3d69658f3c4e3d1da94afb7740c6af.jpg

Go ahead and add me please, since I had to cancel my run today I'll bring my Jeep tomorrow, we'll have both rigs running the trails.

 

Sounds good!   I am sorry you had to cancel your run today. 

 

I am trying to remember what I've made on our previous shared runs.  I think you've had the pork sliders, perogies, pizza crisp.   So how about some beer brats with onions on buns for the adults and hot dogs for the girls?  Cheese crisps of course.  And I have some of those mini pizza rolls for snacks as well.   And I'll grab some potato salad as a side.

It would be great to see you again.   The current plan will take us out to the Bush highway, not the Wolverine exit.    Or we might double back on 8554.    Let me know if you guys are joining and I can bring brats and hotdogs for ya.

Hey will, thanks for the invite and I'm happy to hear that awesome rig of yours is back on the road. My wife and daughter want to bring the 4runner which is stock with an E-Locker. She is very green but I've had her out on two easy trails and she does really well. Would another stocker be OK for you guys? It would be the girls in the 4Runner along with my Tacoma...

Excellent!  Would you like Brats or hotdogs?  (The brats are cooked in beer and onions and then finished on the grill)

Cool beans!  How many brats and/or hotdogs for your group?   (The brats are cooked in beer and onions and then finished on the grill)
