I just signed up :)

Just to give you guys a word of advice... Several of the guys in the Maryland Creepers club have ROLLED their junk at Crozet..

The on site camping is in a cowfield that really has walking beef in it (which is why I'm all for the cabins at the other campground, lol), they have a funny saying for people who bring stock trucks there:

"Stockers can go smash cow patties all day!"

Of course I have yet to see Crozet in person but after being regaled with tales of boulders the size of suburbans and how the 'easy' trails are the equivalent of a Paragon high blue, I can't freakin' WAIT to see this place!! :D :bounce: :D I'm sure there will be easy trails for stockers cut by then if they haven't been already.

Btw, I'll have two or three seats open in my rig for anyone who just wants to ride along.

Ben is trying to get me down there next year, If nothing stands in my way, I may just take a train down there to hook up with you guys and if so I'll just need someone to pick me up in Charlottesville and have someone to ride with. But since that is sometime off things can change, but I really want to do this, so think positive thoughts :D

There is free camping here. It is primitive though most do visitors do camp. You guys/gals are more than welcome as well.

I'm not sure yet where I will be staying, or if I'll just camp out there.

P.S. I FINALLY found a front f.w. hp d44 so I won't have any excuses for not getting it done in time. I'm picking it up on Monday! ;)

We should maybe make contact with some of the big magazine editors and let them know about the event.

What do you mean by rules? If you are talking about the rides we prefer that you have lockers front and rear for blacks - full cage with frame tie-ins for reds and blues you can be stock. We have low, middle, and upper blues.

Stock rigs should start out on the low blues.

Basically our rules are - don't be an ass or stupid - you will be asked to leave. Come here to have fun and wheel - that's what it is all about!

How is that?

The obvious ones are:
Seatbelts
Tow points
No Alcohol on the trail
Pick up your trash and other trash you see
Stay on the trail
Stay safe - within your means and skill set/vehicle build
Be courteous, friendly etc...
and the number 1 rule at crozet is (DRUM ROLL) HAVE FUN!!!

:D

Chris - I did forget 1 (Heather - my wife - does not like bottles or cans thrown into the fire - burn paper trash all you want!)
