July 27- Flagpole

Anyone have any interest in a trip to flagpole on Sat July 27??

No one has planned a trip in a while, and I have the itch.(it ain't crabs, before you comment).

Spike, Were you on the trip in the spring when we were on the first mile and the trail was literally a dust storm? I recommend dropping your top when you stop to air down. Unless you want a brown interior. I am STILL finding dust in my interior!

Anyways, post an update on Friday. I am the play it by ear type so I will probably let you know in the evening.

What time would you make it to the Sheetz in Harrisonburg - the one off the Rt 33 exit? That's where I normally meet everyone since I'm coming from Christiansburg?

If we roll by NLT 0800, we should be able to meet up at 0930 there.

I will put a plan together by tomorrow for all to review.

Sweet jack!

Those of you who are definite- please post where you will meet up, equipment and recovery gear, and anything else you feel is pertinent.

I would love to have an accurate head count at each location.

I'll be there with my wife. We'll meet everyone at the Sheetz in Harrisonburg, just give me a time. I'll be in a 2006 LJ. I'm running a pretty stock rig (30" tires) with a 2"BB and shocks and disconnects. I have a winch and other recovery gear and have been on Flagpole several times. The LJ does have a limited slip diff and Dana 44 rear. Oh, I do have a CB and an air compressor for air-ups.

Group A: meet at the Sheetz in Haymarket (Rt 15 off I66) at 0730. (So far, group A consists of just me). Group A will roll out at 0800 for Harrisonburg.

Group B: meet at the Sheetz in Harrisonburg at Rt 33 and I81 (exit 247B) at 0915. Plan to roll out by 0945.

Gyramax- can you lead us from Sheetz to the beginning of the trail? I have only done that drive once and don't remember the routing.

I'm in a stock 2013 black Rubi. I have an air compressor, recovery straps, jumper cables, limited tools, and flares (yes, flares-- more for fun than anything).

I'll meet at Haymarket Sheetz as well. If its just the two of us meeting there, do you want to go straight to Harrisonburg? I'm flexible.

Also since someone asked for list of equipment, I have 33" tires, no lift and no winch.
I have an air compressor, but no deflators (maybe someone will let me borrow).
Also have straps and ropes.

Sounds like a plan to me. I know the way to the trail start from the Harrisonburg Sheetz. Are we going to do the Switzer Dam route on the way out? See everyone at 9:15 in Harrisonburg.

Gyra- I don't know that route, so why don't you plan the route from Harrisonburg on. We'll all follow you from there.

Jack- lets meet at haymarket sheetz so we can convoy.

I have deflators (brand new and not calibrated yet!).

I think the trail up to Flagpole Knob and then the short back-track to go down the Switzer Dam trail is more fum but I can go either way.
See you on Saturday.

32's are what I want to put on my LJ when the tread wears down on my 30"s. Look forward to seeing what you have.

Was there last weekend and there was a 10 degree difference between the forecast an Knob. Trails have gotten a good bit of heavy rain recently and it had rocked up the trail a little more than say a year ago. Over all nice bouncy rocky ride and stay.
Btw mud holes are nice and deep..

WoW!! You must have been playing around in the mud holes on top of the mountain. I guess it's been pretty wet and they're pretty juicy right now..

Yeah, thinking I'm going to put top back up... Mud on the inside is a lot harder to deal with than mud on the outside.

All set for tomorrow?

Right now the count is 2 in group A, and 2 in group B... Total 4 (for those that are mathematically challenged).

Jack Burton and I will roll out of Sheetz Haymarket NLT 0800, and meet up with Gyra and JW at Sheetz Harrisonburg.

I'm in a black 2013 2 door Rubi. We'll use channel 34 for CB.

looking forward to it. See you gents tomorrow.







Reaper- I know you are lurking. Call in sick and get your a** to Sheetz at 0730.
You too Dan.
