Hey,
I can't make the May dates due to prior commitment, but I can do the September 17-19. I'll plan on it, and let's keep in touch about that. Can y'all make it then?
I'll be doing some easy-moderate stuff as my YJ's my DD for now.

Later.

Are you guys talking about the exit where 85 begins off of I-40 or exit number #85?
Trying to clarify to see if I can join up on this one.

It's limited with stock. Lockers and 35s with skids will open it up to do way more. Compared to ure it's like one big Daniel. But still fun stuff to do stock. Only 80 acres and built for buggies.

Man, when I saw the dates were this weekend, I wanted to go. But after reading on and seeing its like one big Daniel, I decided that was a little too much for me and my DD to handle quite yet!!! Would love to have ridden with someone else tho!

Laurel Lane is tough and Old Stumpy is tougher but I got my 33's up both. I'll post vid's of all of us going up Old Stumpy when I get them.

Unfortunatly when you look at the map it's not a whole lot and there is TONS more that a DD like myself will shy away from.

Overall we had a blast. Check out nc4x4.com past events for more vids of other rigs.
