    How tight does the trail get? Would a 4runner get pin straps? Or just full size rigs?

    Thanks.

    Hi Greg! THe first section of Hog’s is definitely tight as you do rub up agaist the brush and branches. Its nothing a little extra buffing wouldn’t get out. In all the runs we have done in past on Hogs, we have never had any reports of deep scratching. Hope this helps Greg.

    Okay, sounds good. Not 100% sure I can make it but definitely would like getting out at least one more time this season.

    Hi Matthew, as long as you have a point to pull from you are good. On the trails we will be accessing, it is highly doubtful recovery will be required. The one mud hole on Hog’s 2 also has a bypass. Hope this helps make a decission for you. 🙂

    On November 6th, we hosted our Two Scoops Year End Season Finale Sundae Run and it surely ended with a bang! It was a fantastic run overall. So many smiles from many new jeepers makes it all worth it. It was great to meet many new friends and reconnect with old ones. There has been a ton of pictures shared as well for all to enjoy. Even those who were not able to make it. At the lunch stop, Trail Dog Rick’s sausages and hot dogs were a big hit with everyone, including the 4 legged friends. It was great to see others add what snacks they had to the lunch table and yes, coffee will now be a must have on the trail. We are hoping to have perked coffee for next years run so we don’t have to wait for the water to boil. LOL
    However, the best part of the whole run, is how very generous everyone was. I had asked participants to bring crib sheets or $15 towards the purchase of crib sheets and what was the total?

    WE RAISED AN AMAZING $320!!! We also received the donations of wipes, diapers, bottles etc., pictured below. Again, this community is very generous and giving! Rose of Durham will be ecstatic!

    I will soon be posting a date for the drop off to Rose of Durham. If you would like to attend for the drop off and pictures, please shoot me a message. The drop off will likely be a Thursday or Friday, near end of day, near end of November. Lastly, I would like to appologize for the lateness of my posting. Work has been very demanding of my time as of late and after the run Sunday, I was absolutely zonked! LOL Thank you again everyone for your generosity!
