Hope my rear axle works so I can go. Putting in gear oil now. This was a fun project. Had to jack up each side to get the track bar to move enough so I could tighten down a bolt.

So I have been chatting with a harrisonburg native that knows all the trails out in that area. He said since the fire they had a couple years ago, the only place near harrisonburg worth going on is flagpole. He said everything else got plowed to include dictum and second mountain. He said cars can drive out those trails now.

I just wanted everyone to know because its probably going to be a flagpole run.

Depending on how many rigs you have you could do Kephart Run and old 33. Dan should know where they are at bother are further west on 33 on the right before the WV border. We did them with Vance after the big snowstorm. Kephart is about 2 miles in and back out. It's a nice, winding little Jeep trail between two hills.

Kephart is definitely a jeep trail. It's easy to find. Old 33 was not interesting other than the truck stuck in the middle of the road. Are you coming with?
