BigDaddyAt Some great pics there! I can't wait until I am able to make my first run out there with you guys...

jku11noobie Sorry for the late post. Here are the pics from my DSLR, phone pics and videos will be posted later but nothing great there. Unfortunately, the pics aren't too great cause I was a big baby in the cold weather and didn't want to mess around with the settings too much. In any case, enjoy. Next time there will be more and they will be better.

Looking forward to riding with you all again. Good times.

The album is private. It is only accessible to those with this link. Gotta love Google. They've been "downgraded" for the web, so if you want an original high resolution pic just let me know and I'll email it to you. I'm at polishcrab@gmail.com

Was a fantastic way to spend my birthday! Thanks Reap for hooking this up, and thanks to everyone for making it a great trip.

Reaper2332 Great trip today guys! I had a blast and enjoyed meeting all of you. We had a total number of 13 rigs. That's the biggest group that I have been out with yet!

For sure! This time still would've been just one jeep. I had foot surgery a few weeks ago. I have started driving this week but wouldn't have been ready for off road.

Have fun!

jcambensy i will have a cb. no winch no recovery
03-15-2013 07:39 AM
kawa001 Yeah, for the scenic drive although it does mean a longer day. There are a quite a few parallel roads. VA 11, 340, 42, WV 258 to name a few. We took Sweedlin Valley Road back to Moorefield last Sunday. Got on 55 and came home that way. I found a new wheeling road (Peru Gap) to check out. Some of these public VA and WV roads have real possibilities for wheeling and touring. They aren't built to modern grade standards and not maintained well in the winter.

jcambensy All i will be going running in Group 1 with a stock JKU

For anyone thinking about staying down there for the weekend, there are a fair amount of camping locations along the various forest roads. I've GPSed most of them. Civilians can also stay at the Sugar Grove Navy NIOC. We had a nice 3 bedroom unit for $70. Meals are very inexpensive on base.

For Day 2, go explore Second Mountain, Dictum Ridge and Feedstone Mtn off of Long Run. And if you live in Northern VA, stay off of I-81 and take the smaller roads home.

They do have cabin type units but we ended up with a mobile home. It was fine though. Sugar Grove NIOC is conveniently located for a weekend of wheeling. The NIOC are all those satellite dishes you see down in the valley when on Flagpole. If you decide to stay there PM me and I'll give you beta.

darknes Hey kawa how much was it to stay at the cabin for one night
03-15-2013 04:56 AM
kawa001 I use the HDDS07 Diamond Type "S" with a ratchet tensioning system. Use Type S chains to accommodate the limited inner clearance on stock wheels. That chain is designed for road use and wouldn't be acceptable in rocky technical wheeling situations. They do work well on your average GWNF forest road though. They are light, not too expensive, and easy to mount. I'm going to mount up some wheels with 4.5" back space. Once I do that I'll be comfortable using Type S' on the front and more agressive chains on the rear.
Based, on my experiences last Sunday I ordered an extra back country snow shovel so that I can have two on hand. I also ordered an inflatable Bushranger X-Jack. Having one of those on hand would have saved me a lot of digging to get a PSP traction plate under my tires. BTW, my wife got to witness one of the plates shooting out. Those things can be lethal.

Last weekend wasn't a good time to be without Mud Snow tires. Ultimately, it wasn't the ice (there actually wasn't much ice) that did us in. It was heavy, wet snow combined with the steep road grade.

I'll tell you, for winter wheeling I think a $90 investment in chains for the rear wheels is the best bang for the buck. I've noticed that in slippery conditions my JK's back end wants to slide around. That all goes away with chains.
