Welcome to the ECS 2009 Information Thread!

This is where we will answer all of the important questions:

Who: Any LOST Member, Anyone with a Jeep, or anyone without a Jeep that want's to follow the CRD's

What: Three days of Wheel'n in Oak Ridge, TN at the Coal Creek Off Road Park (http://www.coalcreekohv.com/) with all of your friends from LOST

Where: Coal Creek Off Road Park (http://www.coalcreekohv.com/). If you Google directions to Oliver Springs, TN you will be three miles from the park...

When: Some folks get a three day weekend for Columbus Day (10/12). We are going to try to take advantage of that, so the dates are October 9-11, 2009 (so you can drive home on the 12th)

Why: We don't get together enough...

How: Sign up in the signup thread, make your own campground reservations (but I will be calling them about a LOST group rate - remember to tell them you're with the "LOST Jeep Club"; for motel, if we get enough signing up, we can ask for a discount), then check back to see what you can do to help (Coordinate SWAG, The raffle, etc)

ps - the campground link is (http://www.windrockcampground.com)

I'm busy with a "Wheelers For The Wounded" effort in August, getting an addition fnished so the Father-in-Law can move in, taking care of Nickie (Rx w/breast cancer last month), getting the kids to all their stuff, and, oh yeah, I try to work in there too. I'm looking at going down to pre-run with the wranglers that gave us the trail info. They indicated they would drag me through as needed (Including 39!!!)

Hey brother, sounds like you are super-busy. Much of it on many good and worthwhile things. :)

Tell Nickie she is in my thoughts and prayers, and if there is anything I can do for you, her or the kids just let me know...

BTW, good pics in JPFreak of Yellocoyote's, LoganSix's, and some of the rest of the tribe's rides this month... :D

What needs updating? WindRock RV is making a list as people call in; the who, what, where, when, why & how are all set; meduncan is moving on the raffle swag; people are updating the attendance list....

I guess I could post up a trail list & schedule...

Feel free to stop in and ride shotgun with us. We should have plenty of room. As for the area, I guess look at Oak Ridge and Knoxville for things to do...

Yes - and I verified that I can set camp whenever I end up getting there... that even means at 2 or 3am, if need be! I love that place - Missy's the best! :D

just so I can finish planning, can someone confirm the cost?

on this page,
http://www.coalcreekohv.com/main/shop

it lists:
$44.00 Three day permit per person (not per jeep)

is that correct? or is there some kind of group rate we're getting?

Yes, that cost is correct and is per person, and no, Windrock does not offer group discounts.

I know this is the part that hurts; however, I guarentee you that you will forget about the $44 after trail 21. If you haven't, we'll hit 39. If you haven't, I'll refund my guide fee ;)

The bottom line is this - the trails are that good, and Moab is just too far away...

So, a couple questions for the group:

I have lots of experience in the woods, but very little of it mechanized (i.e. wheeling newbie).

- Is the trip appropriate for a true 4x4 beginner (but one with good driving skills otherwise)?
- Are there typically less hazardous ways around tough obstacles if my sheet metal or undercarriage chickens-out?
- If you camp, do you typically strike camp each day or leave things there?
- If I were only able to join the group on Friday evening (coming from ATL, but might not be able to take the day off), is there anything going on in the evening (local pub, etc)?
- Is it too late to register?

- I didn't have a mass amount of wheeling experience when I went out the first time last spring, and I did just fine. Trust your gut.
- Those of us who camped at Windrock Campground last year strike camp once, and leave it. The park entrance is only 1-2 miles up the road... very conveniently located.
- Not sure about evenings yet. We did a night run on one of the evenings during the last ECS that was a lot of fun... maybe we'll try for that again.
- It's never too late to register. :D

Just confirmed the family vacation and we will be flying into Memphis on Sat Oct 3rd, so if our timing works out we'll stop by and say hi! Otherwise we are still going over to that area to check it out.

I did not camp last year (stayed in Oak Ridge at a motel) and it was a mistake. It is much more convenient to do it that way. On almost all the trails (except #21 and #39, I think) there are "by-passes" for the tough spots. Moose would remember better exactly which trails.

Yes, Friday night will probably be the night run (up to the Windmills for sunset and down #2, and then on to other trails if folks want to), and then back to the campfire.

If we stick to the schedule from last year then Saturday night is the Raffle Drawing.

Sunday night is free game for ideas.

It is NEVER too late to come. Arrive when you want, leave when you want. The only thing you have to do is make camping or motel reservations and be prepared to buy trail passes for each participant for the number of days you will be there. :D
