Windrock. OliverSprings Tn.

Last weekend in March, 2020

Wife and I are planning a trip from Texas

Will take a couple easy days trailering up. Wheel on Sat/Sunday.

Slow role back home.
Probably will spend a full day or two In Gatlinburg on way home.


Would be great to ďmeet upĒ if anyone can swing the trip.

Fun place to wheel, too far for me to meet you but have a great time. Some of those trails take a whole day to run and I would suggest that you take a chain saw as the beavers like to drop trees across the trail.

Some build info here:

Iím slightly concerned about the dates, Iíve watched enough videos to know that it can be slick/messy if itís been raining or with snow melt.

Weíve had our I eyes on Windrock for a while now, and this week just works.

Iím excited, thanks for the tip. Iíve been wanting a ďsmallĒ chainsaw. perfect excuse rite.
Iím going to research the Milwaukee battery powered one, I already carry the impact and it takes the same cells.

I would take a gas one. Last time I was there we had to cut quite a bit. It can get crazy slick, we were on a newly cut trail right after it rained and took us about 2 hours to winch 4 rigs up the steep slope.

I'd get a (gas) STIHL and just be done with it.
MS271 with an 18" bar and RD3 chain.
Think I just got a boner.

Yeah Windrock will be muddy even in the driest part of September. Rain will make a winch almost mandatory. Have you ever flushed chunks of coal out of your frame rails? Blew my mind after my first ride.

Windrock is a blast. I'll try to have my rig ready in time and I'll pass the word to our local clubs if you want. How much trail are you looking for?

Planning on two full days, sat/sun.

My rig is a 17 JKUR
37s, 3.5 MC suspension
Sleeved & gusseted D44 w/RCVs
Crm mly rear shafts
Winch, bumpers, good sliders, full UnderCloak.
Adams front/rear.
Stock 3.6 and auto trans.

I like a challenge but not looking to beat the Jeep to death.

We may try to hit Stony Lonesome on the way home for a trail or two (half day). So i hope to still be in one (usable piece)

Wife likes the badge of honor trails so I may have to hit them for her.
(Donít judge, happy wife =more Jeep parts)

We would love to meet you guys, (and/or any others)itís always nice to be with folks that are familiar, and making new friends is half the fun of owning a Jeep.

Is that by chance one of their fuel injected saws?

Iíve seen a couple of vids and that new saw is a beast.

They make a big boy fuel injected saw, but that's probably for loggers.
If you mean Mtronic? No. I wouldn't part with the $$. Plain ol carb with H/L screws is just fine. Less clockwork and BS to deal with.

This is the saw that Iíve had my eye on.
Not to carry in the Jeep, but because I thinks itís too cool.



Iím really leaning towards this for the trail.

I already have batteries for my impact that I carry, and donít like the idea of carrying extra gas/oil or mixes.
There are many good reviews, and I havenít found anyone that hates it, or says itís not a good tool for what it is.

Throw a new / sharpened chain on that Husky and it will tell a different story. : )
Not bad for a 'lectric saw, though.

Sorry for the derail.
