Wheeling Dishpan 9/18/10

Looking at running Dishpan springs with a few of the fellas on here on Sept 18. I do have to be back in the desert around 6pm though. I would also like to bring a few Jeepers from work.

I figure we can meet at the gas station on Hook Creek rd. at around 8:30. I would like to run the trail both ways if possible.

This is considered a black diamond trail, so at least a rear locker (with a winch), skids and rocker protection and some good tires and basic recovery gear are needed. I have done the trail before in my old FJ without problems and even took an open/open crewcab Ram through it. The Ram took about an hour to get through the big waterfall without damage.

We have seen a few Jeeps flip on their lid at the big water fall too so be advised there is a possibility of trail rash.

Tony, Douggie look forward to seeing you guys again.

The AAT club has done some work on the Dispan trail making the waterfall area much easyer on the far left. Hope I didn't dissappoint you Doug

I might be able to sneak out and do the trail.

Mike, they should've left that side unchecked. It now looks paved...
