No I'm talking about the obstacle the stacks and what was done there would have needed some equipment or a lot of man power to b done

Well yea didn't plan to go alone even though I do know the area around the trail. Wanted to get at least 3-5 jeeps to make the trip worth while.

lbredefe I've wheeled the following places:

1) big dogs ice breaker level 4-6 trails
2) shoe creek
3) bald mountain, big levels, flat top, fs 162 (heard it called by all these names)

are you telling me that potts is harder than these? if so I humbly understand.

bajonesy77 Potts was opened on April 4th! A friend of mine went up there, the gates are open. Also passed several jeeps at Whitney's on route 18 im guessing that were heading up there Saturday the 5th. Also SWVA4W has planned a cleanup day for April 19th on potts.

Sorry for the late response. I don't check the forum very often. Looks like we're not going Saturday, not sure when we are going to go. Check out the seven hills jeep club. We go a lot of places during the summer, and we're organized. I'll keep you posted on our next date for the trip.
