8/23/2014 Uwharrie Trip

A couple of us are planning a trip to Uwharrie on the 23rd and everyone is welcome.

Meet up at the Eldorado Outpost at 9:00am.

My Wrangler is my daily driver so I am planning on sticking to the moderate trails. However I am not discouraging anyone that wants to hit the advanced trails, it just means that I will be riding with you part of the day!

Looks like we will have a pretty good turn out next week. So far we have around 20 committed and a large group in the maybe column. Can we get some of you in the maybe column get off the fence? It would be great to have you there!

A number of you that have mentioned riding up together. For those of you coming from Charlotte there are 3 meeting places set. Northlake and South Charlotte groups plan to meet up with the Concord group. Please plan to push off from each location at the times given above so plan to arrive a few minutes early.

Northlake
McDonald’s on Harris Blvd at 485 at 7:30am

South Charlotte
Chick-Fil-A at Stonecrest shopping center at Rea Rd. and 485 at 7:30am

Concord
BoJangle’s on 601 off Hwy 49 at 8:00am

Wow, turning out to be a big trip! This should be fun.
I just hope this forecast isn't accurate.... Was hoping to ride topless all day.

Looking forward to meeting you guys on Saturday!

Meet me at Eldorado’s Outpost at 9am or at one of the meet up locations to ride in together. Remember the times mentioned are push off times!
North Lake and South Charlotte will meet up with the Concord group.

Northlake
McDonald’s on Harris Blvd at 485 at 7:30am

South Charlotte
Chick-Fil-A at Stonecrest shopping center at Rea Rd. and 485 at 7:30am

Concord
BoJangle’s on 601 off Hwy 49 at 8:00am

It looks like our group has doubled since the last time I posted an update. Upon arrival at the Outpost we will need to split up into groups based on trial skill levels. Let’s try to do this as quickly as we can when we arrive.

Let’s plan on meeting back at the Outpost around 12:30 for lunch. I would expect not everyone will be able to make it back by that time however it’s a target. When your group is done you can hit the trails again.

For those of you with CB’s I plan to use channel 16 but it will depend on the amount of chatter.

**** NOTE ****
Even though we are going to meet back at the Outpost for Lunch I encouraged to bring your own lunch and plenty of water in case you don’t make it back in time.

If any of you have not been wheeling before please let me know so that I can make sure you are paired up with someone that has.
**** NOTE ****

If you have any suggestions please feel free to chime in here or give me a call, my mobile number is listed below. I have also included a picture of my Wrangler so you can find me.I have also included a picture of my Wrangler so you can find me.

I've learned my lesson on going to Uwharrie with the top down / doors off. A day of fun turns in to a week of cleaning all the dust out of the interior. No thank you. )
