Looking to go out to Sandy Hollow in 20212 (I turn 60 in April).
Don't want to do any events. Don't want no big crowds. Getting to old for that.
When would be the best time of the year to go weather wise?
Ok that sounds good.
How many days should we plan for?
I was figuring at lease one day for site seeing (the wife would like to see the pictographs and if there are any abandonee towns or mines),
And then hit some moderate trails and work our way up to the harder ones.
Some trail descriptions...not all are on there, since some are new in 2019 or are not part of the W4x4J schedule. However, most off that list are rated 9 or higher (the scale now goes to 15). 10 rated trails are "easy" buggy trails with likely body damage. 9 rated trails are at last partially doable with full sheet metal, but no guarantees. 12's are best done with full link suspensions and 39/40 tires.
That covers most of what's out there..."well set up" is pretty open, but my 1996 FZJ80 Land Cruiser double locked on 35's is good for anything up to 7 rated. It has scratches and dings as a result however.
Double Sammy is a must, Milts Mile, Sliplock, John's Trail, Wayne's World, Triple 7's, Plan B, West Rim.
