URE this weekend?

I was heading there this weekend and was wondering if anyone was going to be there. I need some lessons. I am trying to get there Sat the 8th midmorning. So if you see some guy looking at a pile of rocks, scratching his head while 2 budys in the back tell him he is beeing chicken.... that's probably me.

Gamecocks vs Bama.
Sorry ill be at the game

Youll have a blast though

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

The Jeep club I'm in from Virginia Beach is going. I think there's about 15 vehicles going, a mix of TJs, JKs, and I think a few WJs. There will be folks with stockers going off-road for the first time in our group, so you won't be the only one scratching your head.

Are you camping out down there? We'll be at the Arrowhead campground.

Cool, we're probably easy to spot, the majority of folks will have VA license plates.

URE's a lot of fun, I hope you have a good time!

If you haven't already seen it, this trail map is pretty cool:

Well, I had to change plans. I had to go Friday or not at all. I am pretty amayzed at my little Jeep. I didn't do anything crazy because I was by my self, but I did go up that hill climb on Dutch John. Just how steep of a hill can a Jeep take? I was wrapped around my steering wheel like a cat over a bathtub. But I threw it in 4low and it climbed right up. Can't wait to go back with a group to have fun with.

Hahaha, yeah the Cattle Chute part of Dutch John is a trip, huh?

Uwharrie wasn't nice to a few of the JKs on our trip. The mud pit at the end of Falls Damn ate one guy's starter, another guy started spewing transmission fluid when he got up on that posing rock on Slab Pile, and my power steering took a two hour break after I went through a mud pit. Everyone got all fixed up, and it was an awesome trip.

Def. see if you can finagle a group to go with next time. You're amazed with what your JK can do now, but when you have some experienced folks spotting you through some of the harder stuff you'd never want to do solo, you'll REALLY be amazed at what your JK can do!

Hey.. Got any pics.. I have been to Uwharrie so many times and I need to replace a few faded stickers..

How's Slab Pile and Rocky Mtn Loop? My buddy and I have done Falls Dam, Wolf's Den and Dickey Bell so much we could almost drive it blind folded.. Forward and Backwards.. Doesn't matter.. Just looking to expand some but nothing crazy...

And you are right about the JK.. I have a Rubicon and I have yet to use my lockers.. And the hill climb at Dickey Bell isn't for wusses.. Lots of loose rock.. It just climbed it.. I could feel the BLD kick in a few times..

I don't have any decent pictures of the Cattle Chute, just people popping out of the top, which isn't much to see.

Hey, if you guys can do Daniel backwards while blindfolded, ... I'd pay to see that. I did end up using my lockers once or twice on that big hill climb. Generally after two or three bumps, if I can't get over it, I'll lock the rear. I wheel in a club and don't want to be "that guy" that sits there spinning on the same damn thing for 15 minutes while 10 Jeeps wait behind him. Dickie Bell, I took the left-most way up and it climbed fine without lockers (which really pissed off some of the TJ guys that love to make fun of the JKs).

There were 2 Full size Jeeps that couldn't climb it.. A J10 and an old Wagoneer.. The J10 had to be winched because of the carbs.. They pulled over at the top... They watched us climb that hill like it was nothing..
