Well it's been a little while since I've organized a Christmas Tree run, and I actually think the last time we had one organized it was -40... Anyways it will be good to get the multi-club trip going again. The plan will be some what open as to the trails because of possible logging and changes in the area but there are a few good decent winter trails to get people out for the occasion. As most who have attended in the past know this isn't one of our hardcore runs so much as it is just getting people together and having some fun. Depending on weather conditions and interest there is potential to have winter camping for those interested. If attending this event please no drinking on the trail, can drink at night if camping. Please make sure your vehicle is in good mechanical condition and that you have proper recovery points and equipment. The last hill out of the trail is usually a winch/pull one.

Itinerary
Saturday December 2

- meet in Caroline for a 10 am departure from the GTI. Those coming from the south can meet here خرائط Google‏ at 10:30-11am this is close to the trail head.
- we will stop for lunch and have a fire to cook on or if it isn't required we can just eat on the run.
- make sure you have your Christmas Tree permit so if you see a nice tree you can take it home with you. there will be chainsaws handy.
- depending on what time of day it is that we get off the trail there is another trail that's a little more exciting to do for those interested in giving that a go.
- should be off the trail around 5pm or earlier for those wanting to head home.

Sunday December 3 (Optional)
-
head home whenever if you chose to camp out over night.

Please post up any questions or suggestions you may have.
Thanks,
John

Is there a way to duck out of the trail earlier, about 3 -4 Pm?
I'd have to be back in edmonton at about 5:30-6.

That's really hard to say for sure. The trail doesn't take too long usually but there are a lot of variables. On average that's when we usually get off the trail. Anything can happen though so it's not a for sure 100%

I am really interested in going. My wife's Christmas party is the evening before and, as per usual, I havent touched the Cruiser since getting back from the summer excursion. Hoping to get it into the garage next weekend and give her a good once over. Will see what comes out of that...
