The Higher Ground group is making a run to Crown King on October 10th if anyone wants to come with us, FOr those who have trailed with this group before they can tell you it will be a good ride.

Now that day is the 25th annual Crown King Chili Cook Off according to the Crown King calender, so it's probably going to be a busy day on the trail and in town. I've been wanting to go to the Chili Cook Off for a long time, I love good chili! So I'm willing to put up with the crowds if you are. We will be leaving from New Life at 7:00am, please let me know if you are going, hope to see you there!

Hey, here's a chance for 07JeepXK to show he can go anywhere 49'er can.:stickpoke:

Seriously though, I would love for my wife and I to drive the Commander out in that area of the country some day. Not this time though. Have fun.

I'm with you GP. I would love to make the trip west for Camp Commander. Plus I would go see other things out there.

It is a long trip for me but I will try to make it. I might even have my new springs on by then.

The other Commander on U-Tube on that road is mine, the one going up the hill the Wranger had to try a half dozen times first and I went up on the first try.

I got back also,it was a long day and I only needed help over two obsticals because of my stock height and mall tires. I did rub a little and got a little pin stripping. The 4XGuard belly guard really saved my tranny and it is less than a week old. We did a toyota get back on the trail after if almost slid off the side of the mountain, and someone else in the group towed a suzuki up the mountain after it broke. All and all it was a great day and fun trail, I do recommend a lift, and a full tank of fuel.
