Re: ***Newbie "Must haves" for the 2010 Summit***

I run the 4 ft and will be running the three foot soon. I have a spring and a quick disconnect and my SWR readings are very low on both hieghts. I will be using the 3 foot daily and the 4 foot on trial runs as I think I get farther reception with the 4 ft.

As a note, I hit my 4ft off of trees at 50mph and it hasn't exploded yet. So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

I just want to say that for some its a struggle to simply make it to the Summit. If ALL you bring is your truck and yourself, you will have a great time. You do not need any of the expensive mods to make it around the trails. Everyone is extremely eager to help and lend a hand if needed. Also since the trails get so backed up and everyone stops so often for pictures and CB is not really needed anyways except to just goof off. Just my .10

newbies should bring a clue that the event in question is little more than a gathering of similar trucks and a lots less about any real offroading.

Re: ***Newbie "Must haves" for the 2010 Summit***

Last year was my first time going.....here are some things I took and some things I wish I would have took:

1- CB with 4 foot firestick mounted on rear. Cobra WX75 mounted under console with mic clip on passenger side. GLAD I TOOK. Worked great on drive out from SC with my buddy and also for use in Ouray and surrounding trails.

2-C02 air setup- Mounted in rear on ds fender where bag hooks are normally located. Made airing up and down effortless nearly and very quick compared to some of the other options. I have 5lb tank and filled it a month before Ouray...filled my tires every day after trail rides from 20# up to 35# and then 40# for drive home. Also filled up to half a dozen other vehicle wheels while there...and still had enough to last me rest of summer wheeling locally. Glad I took.

3- Extra Fuel and Water cans- never needed but peace of mind was priceless..Glad I took. My buddy went to Moab and elsewhere afterwards and found out in Idaho I think that gas stations are further apart than some places....ooops.


Wish I would have taken-
1- Engle refrigerator/freezer instead of hauling 90qt cooler the entire way. Used regular ice in bags in bottom....stuff on top...blanket and then dry ice on top of blanket and lasted almost entire drive out and through events....last day was about spent....sloshing drove me crazy on way home. LOL


oh last thing....APPLE PIE! damn glad I took it and shared it at the Saloon!

Must have?

most importantly....15 year old Bourbon to share with FJSummit Directors....

Oh, and CB radio, decent tires, and a camera are nice! I have found that a rear locker helps as well.

Re: ***Newbie "Must haves" for the 2010 Summit***

Even in July you'll want to bring a jacket and maybe some rain gear with you. Also pack some water and food for the trail. Some aspirin in case of high altitude headaches. I keep a small pack in my FJ at all times with all of these items, as well as a multi-tool, pen light, space blanket, fire starting stuff, etc.

And be sure to have extra batteries and a spare memory card for your camera, you will likely be taking hundreds of images while at the Summit.

Re: ***Newbie "Must haves" for the 2010 Summit***

Being a newbie last year Totally agree on the CB radio...picked up a nice handheld off of ebay for about $30. Worth every nickel..oh and bring a driver who's not afraid of heights like me...got out there and started to white knuckle it..luckily my hubby drove the rest of the trails and I had a great time...made some wonderful friends that we're looking forward to seeing this year

Tim beat me 2 it, a CB is good to have but quality bourbon (Woodford Reserve) is imperative!
