crafty 12-05-2008 12:31 PM

Been to Hardrock a few times and have some pics on here from the trips. FYI the FL4WD campout is the weekend of January 17th which I am already committed to attending. I am good for any other weekend.

jeepjeep 12-05-2008 09:24 PM

no worries, we wont go that weekend! you want to take a weekend off after you get back from fl4wd? or are you ok with the following weekend?

crafty 12-05-2008 09:34 PM

That weekend would work for us. I don't need a break unless my rig breaks :cool: I finally got all my Kentucky damage taken care of lol. We might camp at hardrock or www.lakeintheforest.com <--- nice place with a rec. hall and a kitchen everyone can use thats indoors.

jeepjeep 12-06-2008 04:46 PM

i am down w/ campin but mt gf may not be, lol. kentucky? telico?

So I'm looking for a great "first time" experience... The video of the rolled Jeep kind of scared me some though.. any thoughts on this being a good "first time" experience?

jeepjeep 12-07-2008 08:55 AM

Perfect first time... it is mild wheelin w/ some good hill climbs. that guy in the video completely turned his wheel the wrong way???If it rains you will need good tires and locked to climb.it is a small park so no big deal.

crafty 12-08-2008 11:07 AM

I went with the group on here to Black Mountain and then hit Jeeptoberfest after that. Repairs have been made now though. lol Snapped my pitman arm yesterday which is now fixed also. That lake place has furnished cabins also which are nice fyi.


Good first time place but, please make sure you have front and rear recovery points.

I have the hooks bolted on the front, but does the trailer hitch in the back count as a "recovery point"?:confused:

jeepjeep 12-08-2008 04:30 PM

yea it does...but have to go easy i think it bolts to your bumper

jeepjeep 12-08-2008 04:32 PM

how is black mtn? we are already planning river rock in march/april sometime...

crafty 12-10-2008 11:34 AM

If I had to chose one over the other Black Mountain is it!!! River Rock is a good time but smaller and privately owned. I also might be hitting River Rock in April with my group. River Rock being closer helps also lol

DataByte 12-10-2008 02:33 PM

There is another forum that I post on (dare I not post a link here) that I scheduling a trip in January.. I will keep you all updated in case anyone wants to join us!! Should be a great time!!

At this point there is voting on the date, so I will let everyone know what the final result is.

jeepjeep 12-11-2008 05:30 PM

how about weekend of 10 & 11? i am ok with it. let me know...

crafty 12-14-2008 02:24 PM

I don't have anything scheduled, I might just drive up for the day and find you guys at Hardrock or be there when they open.

DataByte 12-14-2008 02:42 PM

Looks Like the trip will be the 10th and 11th @ Hardrock and Possibly the Ocala National Forest as well.
The jk-forum persons are putting this together if you want to slide over and take a look. The thread is in the "sunshine state" area.
I will post final details here and possibly start a new thread as well!

jeepjeep 12-14-2008 03:35 PM

well... the d35 shit the bed 2 days ago... in middle of swapping d44hp/9" hopefully i will have it done in time!

jeepjeep 12-14-2008 03:35 PM

oh i dont think orv is allowed in the ocala national forest.

crafty 12-14-2008 04:34 PM

Hardrock is very close to the 80 mile ORV trial in Ocala. I helped mark some of that trail. It is hunting season though, not the best time to go there.
