I'd go, but I only want to run greens and maybe a couple blue 1s. If there are a couple of people that only want to run low trails, I'd go up. Don't want to keep you big guys from having fun with harder trails.

Well you could come in my group if I go. We only need one more truck for a group. I have an 06, and try to avoid any trails where I'll beat her up to bad on. I'm lifted 3 inches, but the first time I was up to Paragon, there was a stock Tacoma that went everywhere we did with no problems. He bashed in his skid plate a couple of times, but I honestly think he was going a bit too fast when he did it. The only other time he hit something was crossing the one creek, and I don't blame him...you couldn't see the rocks under water.

Also, just so you know, if you do go up there are plenty of trails that are very un-technical. Just a matter of having a patience, being easy with the skinny pedal, and asking for a spot if you feal uncomfortable. I consider myself a novice wheeler. I understand most of the ideas behind passing obstacles, just don't have the experience like some of these guys have.

That sounds good, Ive wheeled before and just ended up getting out a bunch of times and looking for the best line. I would rather do that than go to fast and break something as I am poor and can't afford to fix anything. Is there anything required? I have a strap, gas container and shovel and that is the extent of my offroad mods.

does the strap have metal hooks?
If so not allowed in, other than that your set.

I did all the greens and I am a calculating driver as well, I don't rush it I just take my time and ask for a spot when needed like Rodge suggested...

Look at my vid in my paragon run post, it gives you a glimps of some of the stuff we went through...

I'll take a look at the your video. And yes, the strap has metal hooks, I didn't know the hooks were so bad when I bought it. I guess I should get a new one any suggestions on brands?

I'de like to go as long as I dont get a shitload of work to do. I go to college at Kutztown, I guess its about an hour and 15 minutes south of Paragon. Can I let you know later in the week if I'm in for sure or do you need to know asap?

Myself and Jordan(Rocktoy87) have an hour and a half drive North, so you're not too much futher away than we are.

Jordan, I should hopefully have my sliders by then. :D

EDIT:

Count me out. I just remembered I have to help remodel the middle bedroom on the 2nd floor of my house. :mad:
