After a one year hiatus the Technical Overland is back! July 27th through 29th. This could be the best to date with not only the supercar "cannonball" run
.....But with the Technical Overland participants. Just to get a glimpse of what's in store(http://www.wranglerforum.com/f23/technical-overlanding-boulder-city-idaho-1343457.html)
This is a zero "fee" "gathering" where the only cost is what you spend to get there and have a good time. There are several clubs participating this year:
1. Northwest Overland (Treasure Valley Chapter)
2. Southern Idaho Offroad Association
3. Idaho 4x4
There are a few businesses joining the trip (zero fee)
Day 1 is truly the technical portion of this trip with a night run to Boulder City, Idaho. This 2.6 mile trail climbs approximately 3300 feet and is difficult in a stock 4 door Wrangler.
Day 2 is the actual cannonball run where supercars have topped 220 MPH on an open highway. They are expecting up to 200 cars to participate. This will be followed by another day trip to Boulder City and then into Ketchum, Idaho to participate in "touristy" things. From there we will head into the Sawtooth Forest on service access roads and onto our final campsite.
I am going to do a prerun the 1st or 2nd weekend in July to make sure everything works out.
