Won't be able to make it unfortunately. We should keep this thread going to get with people in the area so we can go wheeling sometime. Just a thought

I thought I wouldn't be able to come because I sold my JK several months ago. I stayed on the forum though "just in case" and I'm glad I did. I just bought a 78 CJ 5 three days ago so I am looking forward to coming out on Saturday. I will be able to make the convoy so I will see y'all there.

It was a great day. Leaving there at the entrance looked like a parking lot so many stuck trucks. One unlucky xj owner lost his transfer case at the entrance.

Just the trip back to the entrance it was hitting on the red section of the gauge. But as soon as I got to the pavement temp went down instantly.

Go Topless day, Wilmington

Great time!!! I believe I was the last to leave...around 11am today. I couldn't get enough. I would do this every weekend!
Had to take the windshield down to get the full topless feeling. Great to meet some of you and look forward to meeting up again soon. -Kent

Thanks to you for all of your efforts to put this together, it was great day of beach fun with the largest gathering of fellow Jeepers I've been a part of to date!

Also just wanted to say coupling the event with a food drive was a stroke of genius, and the generosity I saw in all those food donations really made me really proud to be a "Jeep Guy". I say lets keep that tradition going .

Thank you again to everyone that came out and proved that jeeping is a way of life. What did everyone think of the total day from Neuwirth all the way till sunset? What did you like? What did'nt you like? How could me and Matt improve this event for next year? Any ideas are very welcome!

My $0.02 worth: liked the food drive part as I mentioned. Also, pizza delivery was well-timed, I was just thinking about lunch and Bam there it is! I also liked that despite our numbers, everyone at the beach was parked as such that everyone was free to come & go at will.

I got the impression that Neuwirth wasn't ready for, or expecting, as many to show up as did, so if turnout maintains or increases we might want to consider our meet-up location allows adequate room for parking etc (minor detail- it worked out OK).

Also, I do hope the t-shirts work out next year (I wanna be able to represent!)

All in all it was a great event, there were some (very minor) teething-troubles evident, easily attributable to it being the inaugural event for this area...all in all it was a great time with great people...and the above-mentioned minor gripes are only listed because I understand that feedback is an important part of the process necessary to make this event even more awesome in the future

Great event, you guy's did a great job. I had to park on the side of the street at the meet up.
But that's why I drive a jeep so I can park in ditches or wherever. Lol
I wouldn't worry about changing anything, everyone loved it. Thanks again

Thank you chilly! Next year we are going to plan ahead of time and get a pre planned route for the line of jeeps to get in at Neuwirth. I definitely do want to get t shirts going as well next year! Thanks for coming out and for the opinions!
