Is anybody planning to go to Elbe anytime soon? I haven't run the Busy yet and would like to run with somebody who has.

Thanks, Tom

Pretty sure, body armor, exo, locked front and back, 4.88, 35s, winch. I fully expect to have to do some winching and may accumulate some new body damage. I've been wanting to run busy for a couple years. XJ is set up pretty good, wishing for a little bigger tires and stouter axles though, or a buggy

That's fine, you probably won't even have to winch. The busy is ridiculous in the winter and you'd just disappear into the mud holes on 35's and have a very bad day. In the late spring and summer it's really not a big deal, only very marginally more difficult than many other trails at Elbe. I've gone through twice with no difficulty on 35's. In the winter at Elbe, the easiest trails are harder than the hardest trails in the summer.

In a few weeks I'd probably be up for spending a day down there. Need to finish up a 4 month build project on my Jeep, another weekend or two and it'll be trail worthy again.

I was out there last week for the Outcast fun run, I hadn't been there for a while and holy cow the tank traps on the Gotcha are deep now! Still pretty wet and muddy but not for long if this weather hangs around.
Let me know when you're gonna go, maybe we can get together, I live in Spanaway so it's usually not a problem to get out there.
