Thanks, I have put a lot of time into it. I also owe a debt of gratitude to a couple of friends that helped me out along the way

I CANNOT believe you came within 1/2 hr of the house and didn't tell me!!!!!!
j/k

All aside sounds like you had a good time with the in-laws (always a good thing) bummer on the road damage though.

that looks familiar.....i just went there today and did pretty much all trails......daniel, rocky mountain loop, slap pile, wolf den, and dutch jon.

your 4runner is pretty sick.

your 4th/5th pictures (cant remember which trail, today was my first time at uwharrie) is crazy.....me and my friend (cherokee on 35s) flexed on it for a picture, and you simply walk over it.

Thanks. That trail is Falls Dam. Going up it is much better than going down.

Hope to see you there!

ALL are welcome...
(Heck, even Jeeps )

HALLOwharrie ~ October 5th-9th (Thursday-Monday)
The link that Zman posted earlier is for our 'pick a date' thread - Keep an eye on 4x4Wire's Trail Runs Forum for the upcoming event thread.

Until then, here's a little info:
-- There are NO event fees.
-- Attend as many (or as few) days as you like.
-- Trail groups come and go 'whenever' (There are no scheduled trail runs).
-- Trail groups are friendly, helpful, and well-equipped; typically 4 to 10 vehicles in size - and trail selection is suited to vehicle/driver ability (No taking unprepared newbies for a rock-rash 'haze ride' / No peer pressure / No leaving anyone behind).
-- We will be staying at Arrowhead.


If possible your rig should have:
-- CB radio
-- Tow points, front and rear
-- Recovery equipment (a HOOKLESS Tow Strap, D-ring(s), etc.)

Howdy Roy!

OK, so now that you've had a good laugh ( ) - why don't you share your impressions of our little UNF get-togethers, seeing as how you and your Taco hardly ever miss one


Cheers!
Smiley

^^ the guy that's too lazy to go look for some of those Flop Pix and post them

Will,
I thought the 1st gen was a trailer queen now?? What was it doing on the hiway? Glad you made it back on your own power though! Apart from that the truck is looking good! Be sure and check out the pics from my trip. I just finished the shooting the New Mexico guys and it was quite impressive to say the least. I think we all need to make a week long trip and come out here some time. If we get a few tow rigs and all go about 60 it shouldn't be TOOO bad on gas. Anyway, looking forward to the Fall Crawl! Glad to hear all is well and you didn't scare the in-laws away!

Trailer Queen? No not here. I wanted it to be, but bought an 06 Harley instead. So now it will pull double duty and make the trip along with the trails just like always.
