    The Grown Up TJ should be out of surgery on 2/20. This will be the inaugural run of the V8 powered TJ. Let’s go see the river and take advantage of some of the lower flat lands.

    Saturday February 25, 2017
    Event: Atlanta – Scenic Route
    Host: Christian Dahlstrom
    Who can attend: Everyone!
    Meeting Place: Albertsons at Gowan and Federal Way < -- Click the link
    Time: Meet at 9:15am – Pull out at 9:30am – Plan to return around 4pm
    Distance: Round trip from Albertsons is about 160 miles if we can get to Atlanta. I expect we will run into enough snow that we will turn around before Atlanta.
    Rig minimum: Stock. Yeah, this is a scenic ride. If we get into snow, you’ll want good tires. There are numerous photo opportunities.
    What to Bring: Lunch, water, very warm clothes
    Note: We will not do a mud run. Road damage goes against our Tread Lightly principle. An alternate trip may be planned.

    Optional Meeting Place: IHOP on Federal Way < -- Click the link
    Optional Time: Breakfast at 8:00am — Then we will roll over to Albertsons to travel with the group.

    If it’s not me out of town, it’s you… we need to fix this. Maybe we can both make it to the Rocket Run. :rules: :occasion5:

    Watching posts from others, I’ve noticed that this area is very muddy. We will not do a mud run.

    I’m exploring an option of running up the Middle Fork of the Boise River toward Atlanta. Anyone have any opinions on this possibility?

    I think it’s worth looking at another area: I see a lot of muddy pictures on Facebook from this area. Heading towards Atlanta is a good option.

    Turns out that I have to work Saturday morning, so I’m not going to be able to attend this run after all.

    We had 9 rigs. We made it all the way to Atlanta. I really didn’t think we would, but the road had been maintained. The scenery was very peaceful. To the two people who needed to be home early, I’m sorry you missed lunch. I hope you made it home on time.

    Here are a few pictures.
