Made it out to Stony today- weather was PERFECT! Didn't spend all day out there, but got a lot of the advanced and some extreme trails in- my stock TJ on 31's did just fine. If anyone wants to meet up sometime just PM me. If I'm free I'll make the drive from B'ham!

Were there many Jeeps at Stoney? Sunday afternoon is a good time to go. When I was there last week the Rhinos were driving a wee bit too speedy on the main road. I had to go buy some higher reach jack stands for a spring swap I attemted Saturday but the rear springs were not a matched set from the Sahara take-offs I bought on eBay, found an odd one though for another FIFTY DOLLARS! Trying to get ready for a meet-up north of Atlanta next weekend, that is if I can get my work done. SAE 2012

Not many when I was out there. Hell, I might have been the only one. Plenty of ATVs/dirt bikes/side by sides, but the SUVs and Jeeps were hen's teeth. I saw maybe one or two other "regular" vehicles, but I was the only Jeep. Having said that it's a big property so who knows? If my plans this weekend fall through I might just have to join you in GA!

I just recently ordered and received the National Geographic Alabama Recreation Atlas from Amazon and I highly recommend this atlas. Check it out: National Geographic Maps | State Recreation Atlas - Alabama

Sunday I decided it would be a good day to go for a ride so I headed out to the Talladega National Forest. I ended up heading north on Co Rd 6000-1 off Hwy 148 east of Sylacauga (33.195523,-86.063322). Took it all the way to where it ends at Hwy 77 (33.316893,-86.022713).

Its about 12 or so miles long with elevation of 1800 +/- according to my gps and has some nice views. Its pretty rocky but nothing any stock jeep couldn't handle. There were a couple of mud puddles but nothing significant.

I didn't have time to do any more exploring but I want to cross Hwy 77 and get back on top of the mountain on Skyline Dr. the next time I get a chance to get out.
