He has required equipment listed here: equipment as you probably saw.. For the most part, I'd say the most important is good recovery hooks... very warm clothing as you'll probably be outside of your truck a lot.. a shovel incase we can't get someone winched/yanked out ...

I'll be going to Winter Romp as well... heading up Friday. Who else from this board is going?

Ah I would love to come with you guys. One of my very best friends goes almost every year. Neil Fisher is his name and he drives a SIIA 88" in tahiti blue. Will be dropping in on him in a couple of months or so, so maybe catch up with you guys then.

Neil says have you seen this site? Here

He also says
Quote:
If snowy, snow chains are good if you know how to put them on.
A good tow strap is usefull. Basically it's just like offroading in mud, but it's snowy and can be very cold.
Also

Quote:
My biggest issues the last two years have been post trail freeze-ups of the brakes and mud in and around the wheels. Last year I was left alone an hour away from home with all four brakes frozen solid and had to use low range and a heavy foot to break the ice free. When it went I thought Id broken an axel it was so loud.
He's a helpful chap!!!

We're leaving NJ around 10am, it's about a 7 hour drive so we plan on being there around 5pm/6pm ... Checkin into the hotel, heading to dinner, then wheelin' all night.. It'll be between probably 4 and 10 trucks depending if we hook up with people in Mass.

I've thought about going but I don't have enough of the gear i.e. chains hi lift etc..

Plus my rover would probably fail the inspection that thing is leaving a trail of fluids that a blind man could track through the woods to find us.

I would really love to go though.......

Army; it's a Rover. It's supposed to leak. They only fail tech inspection if they DON'T leak.

Yes but they don't usually leave an oil slick on the upper gate on the bright side I should have no undercarriage rust issues and I should never get lost in the woods...


Follow the oil slick road, follow the oil slick road

As far as the gear I don't have any friends that wheel or any friends for that matter lol. So I really don't have anyone to beg or borrow from and funds are tight for the time being the wifes G** D*** benz is broke again. That darn thing is worse than a Rover. Time for a mass air flow on it and with my luck another 12 knuckle busting spark plugs. I hate that car with a passion usually reserved by men for ex wives.

Have you checked the breather's on the top of your valve covers? All your emissions lines hooked up properly? Mine used to do that as well. Ended up the engine was just pressurizing itself on the highway. Cleaned everything up and it went right away.

As for the romp...

It really is very informal. Don't get the wrong idea from the website.

It's just a giant group of rover nuts wheeling their trucks. The schedule is only a suggestion.

The only thing you really need are recovery points so we can yank you out if(when) you're stuck. If anyone's on the edge... GO! You won't regret it. You'll learn quite a bit.
