Pics from Uwharrie 3/31/12

Just a few from early in the day. I got a video of me in the mud hole but I haven't gotten it uploaded yet. I hope there are more forum members around next time.

The mud is sticky clay and darn near impossible to get off. The trucks were 50/50. The white on had 38s and did good. The other one made it but not near as easy. To me Uwharrie is one of those places where the driver is more important than the rig. Lots of lines to take and lots of crap to hang you up.

that mud looks terrible lol...for cleaning at least.

and yea, I figured the trucks weren't what they cracked up to be and as always, I figure it really does come down to the driver most of the time. I know I couldn't handle a 4x4 yet, no matter how beast it is...gotta get going on those trails!

ugh! I hate that Uwharrie Red Clay! You're right, though, it separates out the good drivers from the bad.

Any inkling I used to have to wheel that stuff was 'ground' out of me, though, when I moved to Colorado several years ago and started rockcrawling. It was great ... go wheel technical stuff and you don't have to wash your rig after (just touch up the rock rash ).

That said, now that I'm back in NC, I hit Uwharrie regularly, but try to go only if its reasonably dry. I really, really do hate mud ...

But, I'll be there next weekend (wknd after Easter) for the, eh hem, Land Rover Rally ... and, yes, attending in the JK.

As much as I would love to go ride when there are rovers around, I have other plans for that weekend. I WILL however get my 30 dollars worth from URE this year.
