    I would like to come. I don’t have any rally gear and I want to learn more about how to go about getting setup.

    @Simp801 I didn't explicitly state it but if people are even remotely interested in what it takes to Rally they should plan on coming out. I will have a digital setup and a traditional paper setup so people can see the different bits in person. I know it was a bit daunting when I started looking into it all and it would have been nice to look at someones setup just for reference as much as anything else. There is only so much you can glean from the internet forums!

    Looks like there is some interest so let's make a plan to do this in 3 weekends. How does Saturday, February 3 work for those that have shown some interest? This is all weather dependant of course. I am sure by picking a date we will bring winter back to Utah. We can pick the location as we get closer to the date and see what the weather has done. Delle would be my first choice, unless it has snowed/rained in the days prior. 5 Mile Pass can be the backup location. This wouldn't be a super early start, say start the show and tell at 10 AM, some general rally nav gear stuff and then into the roadbook side of things. I can see that portion taking 2-3 hours and then a short loop or two of navigation for those that have some sort of setup with them.

    You can PM me if you are interested instead of clogging this thread up with responses. Please let me know if you are intending to ride or just want to come and check stuff out and provide me with an email address. I will send out some group emails as we get closer to the date.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    For those who aren't sure of the two riding areas I am talking about:

    Delle - West of Grantsville, off I-80

    5 Mile Pass - West of Lehi/Saratoga Springs

    I've found that the main chunk of the knolls is rideable year round. Yes, not a not of nav stuff out there, but I'd say enough to get a 20 mile loop of trail without ending in the muck.

    If there is any interest, we could follow up with some navigation rides. I have about 144 km route out of Eagle Mountain.

    Feb 3rd is good for me. Hopefully the weather is decent.

    This is a really good idea for any of you Rally-Curious types, and you can't ask for better folks to show you the ropes... I wish you guys weren't 8 hours away.
