|slapmypc||Np. waited a little, then went out on our own. ran about 50 miles through the Park. Lots of dirtbikes on the trails! I need to go again and look for the mud.|

|Billett||Sorry about this weekend Slap. I didn't see you respond to anything so we just went on out. I did get some pretty good pics and video that I'll post up here when I get it all together.|

|Billett||I don't see why not. Right now the plan is to meet at the Ranger Station at Atsion around 10-10:30, cut through most of the forest on one particular dead straight road and see Carranza Memorial and Apple Pie Hill fire tower, eat lunch (we're packing sandwhiches) then meander our way back to Atsion. We'll probably head out by 3-4 because we have family coming over that night. If you're interested I can PM you my cell number,but I have to warn you, we are definitely not professionals!|

|BigPhil||I'll be there tomorrow.|

the two sites I always camp at are Batona and Bodine Field
im actually camping Friday night (at Batona site) and wheeling Saturday if you want to come down a day early!
You can book online and if you print out the confirmation you don't have to hit the ranger station before hand
Have a good time

|Billett||Since we are meeting up with some of the guys from North Jersey on Sunday, my wife and I were considering just camping at Wharton Saturday night. Do you guys have any suggestions on the campground? We will be bringing a small dog with us.|
|09-16-2014 11:49 AM|
|Billett||We did end up going this past Sunday. Pretty great for a first trip and I'm very excited to get further into "the lifestyle" haha pics and videos to come.|
|09-11-2014 12:33 PM|
|Aeneas||all good man, and yea I saw that about the 28th, I have hockey at 1 which pretty much ruins my Sunday|
|09-11-2014 10:44 AM|
Whenever I make it out there I definitely won't go alone. At the moment the tires on my jeep are stock size wrangler SR-A's, (might even be original tires just on different rims...), and they are getting low on tread so I plan on avoiding most puddles. When I do go the Tacoma will definitely be coming with me.
And I did see that there were no alcoholic beverages allowed, I said that more as a joke. Although in all honesty I'll probably try to bring something along just in case the need arises and we stop to picnic or something haha.
I'll keep you posted on the 27th, but just a heads up some of the North Jersey guys are planning a trip to Wharton on the 28th. No wine festival that day!
|09-11-2014 09:47 AM|
I can go this weekend but go and have fun, just take your time going through puddles, a lot of them are deeper than you think. If you see a go around then take it. Also go with someone else so you don't wind up posing in the recovery thread
ps Wharton is a state forest and no drinking allowed, you do you though, Id be lying if I said I didn't bring beer when I camp out there
lmk about the 27th
|09-10-2014 09:19 AM|
Yeah I've been meaning to pick up some D-rings but didn't get around to it yet. The rest of the stuff you mention is all stuff I have I'll just have to get it together in one toolbox for the trip.
I may actually end up heading out there this weekend just to poke around and check some things out. My wife mentioned a Wine festival she wants to go to on the 27th and I forgot about it. I'm hoping I can convince her to just bring some wine out to the park...

Evil I haven't seen you on this forum yet!! my Jeepforum name is breehill, we wheeled a few times together!
Billet- that is a great start! I would suggest to get 2 3/4 D rings
For your first time you are set, but this is some stuff I always have just ot give you an idea:
-CB (need to get one I use walkies)
- Tool set ( I have a 30$ one from HF I just leave in the back of the jeep) a breaker bar
- Misc fluids, I have coolant/oil/power steering fluid/break fluid/ wd40/ break cleaner
- Misc "stuff" some twine, zip ties, ducktape
meeting place will be the ranger station off 206 by the pic a lilly

|evilwhynot||I would say meet at the ranger station on 206|
|09-05-2014 10:00 AM|
The 27th sounds like a plan to me. If you don't mind I have a couple of ?s before we meet up.
The jeep is a 2012 JKU Sport we bought with what looks like a small suspension lift, (4"s maybe), and stock size aftermarket rims. I have a recovery strap, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit in the car, but is there anything else I should pick up before I come out?
The vehicle coming with me will be a stock Tacoma TRD and maybe a few others if I can convince them. Where would you like to meet up?
|09-05-2014 08:08 AM|
|Aeneas||im free Saturday the 27th if you guys want to do a run then. I know most of the forest and have a winch|
|09-04-2014 07:12 PM|
|BigPhil||Set a day, and I'll see what I can do.|

One thing, once you start paying fines, they win. So get legal fenders on quick as you can.
|09-04-2014 03:04 PM|
|Billett||Hey guys, my wife and I just bought our first jeep and I'm pretty excited to take it out. I live about 45 mins from Wharton and from what I'm reading it's pretty easy on first timers. Anyone interested in meeting up and showing me around sometime in Sept? I'll probably be bringing at least one other vehicle as well.|
