Yeah it's pretty sweet. It has heated seats, a HUGE moon roof, "automatic" 4wd and a V6. Not sure how much nicer it could be. Pretty sure a black light would light that thing up. Even with bald tires the little beast made it down a few trails for some night time training scenarios.

Does anyone know if the proposed new "Lake View" trail is open?

thats ridiculous....i mean, don't get me wrong, I am glad the trails that are there are available for us to use. I just wish they wouldn't "tease" us with a new trail and then let it take several years to complete. just get a freakin' bobcat and make the trail already. Hell ... i will do it if they provide the bobcat!

I guess the next time you're out there for a volunteer day or going to one of the annual meetings you can offer this up as a solution. It's really annoying when people who are no involved and don't understand how hard some people work to just keep the existing trails open make statements like this. At this point with all the idiots out there treating this place like it's their own thrashing place with no regard for preservation or maintenance. We are just lucky there are still any trails to use yet be able to expand them.

Dude... I live 7 hours away. Believe me.... if I lived closer I would help a lot. I know people work hard to keep the trails going. Chill out.

Then they bitch about trails being closed and no new trails being open.

I'm not saying you or your friends have done any of those things. But your statement above indicates that you don't understand the amount of effort that goes into just maintaining the trails yet along opening a new one. How are they supposed to open up a new one when there is not enough money or man power to simply maintain what is already open.

Man... my bad. I didn't mean to cause a stink. I respect the land I wheel on... I tread lightly... and I pack out more than I went in with. I apologize, maybe we can hang out around the fire!

Trails dried up pretty quickly but rain earlier in the week helped keep the dust down

Very fun weekend - camping was tight but the trails were great.

The Jeep guys all wanted to know what the hell the big blue thing was - it made all their trucks look like toys (until the battery died).

It was really neat how many modified LR3/4s were at Uwharrie this year. I think they outnumbered the D2's by a significant margin. I didn't get an exact count but I think there were over 20 LRs there.

Glad we were able to get a campsite next to you guys. The USFS designating the grasses area no camping really sucks. Think people have been parking and camping there since I started coming to Uwharrie. That along with their pestering on Saturday night makes me wonder if they shouldn't start looking for other group campsites for future events

Before this event was even over we already had something in the works for next year.

We were able to confirm next years dates along with a new and BIGGER campsite location (still in Uwharrie), new sponsors and new trails to run! CROC will be partnering withe UORTC to make this happen. This should help resolve some of the issues we were having with the group campsite. The NF is really cracking down on alcohol even at campsites. So camping on private land next year should take care of that issue. Obviously alcohol on the trails is still illegal. But the new venue should make things a lot more fun!

How can the NF crack down on legal alcohol consumption by legal adults?

Not supposed to have booze in any NF. In my experience they usually overlook it unless you're acting up but I guess that's no longer the case at Uwharrie. Anyways, glad there are plans for a new campsite next year

I met the French couple in Livermore, CA. They were having some repairs done at West Coast British. That's a cool rig.
