    We got the trees off the house, thanks to Kevin. I think he wants to go with his 91 on 35s.

    I should see fishfood (Spike) this weekend, I'll try to get him to check in here.

    The trail does not get very rutted because it is mostly rock. There are easy and less easy lines, depending on you preference.

    There is at least one detour that should chanenge any of us who feel brave (foolish).

    Unless, God please forbid it happen, my explorer blows up in the next few days.. Freddy.

    Unclemeat when you see him please PM me or or let me know what you guys' plan of attack is. I'm off Friday/Saturday and work Sunday night, I'd like to ride there and back with you guys incase something with my truck does go wrong. I haven't gone wheeling/roadtripping since the new engine yet and I'd like to be safe.

    Well.. except to VA beach, but that doesn't count, I made like 300 stops.

    FishFood (Spike), I've always called him as he introduced himself to me, Stacey.. is also taking his black 2nd Gen. As it's mostly his property we're wheeling on I think...

    i dont think so,that was an option but looks like no one has talked to him or he hasn't posted.im not wheeling on anyone property unless they post up we can.as of now it looks like GWF trails and camping at Sherando Lake.i dont care where we wheel as long as we have permission but think as of now we are camping at the lake either way Fri and SAT sense the have restrooms and showers and we are all planning on going up fri not sat

    Yeah I don't get it... I know there's tons of people in Richmond area I think some may be scaredto get dirty or mess anything up... These trails aren't that bad they're not designed to need huge tires lift...

    Oh.. shows how much I missed out on..

    whoops.

    Well, Once the final plan is figured out we, and by we I mean my girlfriend, will make the decision on when an how long we'll be down. But I will wheel regardless. Alls I need is 2 CV axles and I'm in the green!!
