    Hey OF4WD

    If it doesn’t sell out, I would love to participate in the Newbie run as I have a friend who has never been off-roading and he can only do day trips (so he can’t make it to the organized trail runs). Anyway, just thought I would ask. I actually paid for the last newbie run as I was going to go as a demo vehicle for Staangs Fab, but i had to pull out at the last minute. would of course pay again, just mentioning that I almost went to the last one. Thanks.

    Hey Kevin,

    Have you participated in a newbie run in the past? You mentioned that you signed up for the last one and couldn’t make it.

    I just applied for membership and then registered for the newbie run, but I am not sure if I put in a proper membership ID. Couldn’t find it on the page, I guess I’d have to wait for confirmation rom someone. Want to make sure I ‘ll have space reserved for the run. Also, it says Oct.24 on the webpage, but Oct 25, Sunday on the registration form. Not too bothered either way just want to know when to show up. Thanks.

    I’m new to 4 wheeling, very interested in the newbie run. What equipment do you need to bring beyond your vehicle (stock wrangler unlimited)?

  6. Raymond Prince says:


    You don’t really need to bring anything extra for this newbie run. It’s good practice to have some of your own recovey gear (at a minimum a recovery strap) but your guides will have anything needed for this event and you’ll be learning about what you should be carrying when you’re offroad.

    Hello, I am interested in doing the newbie run. I have a 2005 subaru forester AWD, will I be able to participate?

    Hello OF4WD,
    Messaged about joining the newbie run before registration closed. However, as a new member did not yet know membership number to properly register. Maybe I was registered irregardless? Please contact me and inform. I have multiple driver friends joining you and being a part of the group would make another car load of people very happy!
    Cheers and enjoy either way!
