    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    A small group of cruisers and a jeep will be heading to Attica on the above mentioned dates for some wheeling. I know there's already a group headed out for the weekend, but we'll most likely be headed hom on Saturday.

    If anybody wants to join us and show us around, you're certainly welcome to. None of us have ever been there.

    We'll be staying in the Summers campground.

    A few of our club members are coming up that weekend. We will arrive on Friday and be leaving on Sunday or Monday.

    There will be a couple of full size Chevys, my Toyota and a Jeep.

    We are supposed to be meeting a few locals up there.


    Oh, club name......www.baltimore4wheelers.com

    We are staying at a hotel, but I could not tell you where. James made the hotel reservations. He got a block of rooms for our whole group.

    We should be there sometime Friday late afternoon or early evening.

    We are driving halfway on thursday and finishing the trip Friday morning.

    Our carnage included: lost bead on a CJ5, rear driveshaft on a Ford Ranger, junked upper 3-link on a tube-minitruck (and a rear driveshaft when the pinion pointed straight up), and a tie rod on my FJ40.

    not bad for 1-1/2 days on the trails!

    I did practice the "tire burn" trick for heating up the rubber for added traction, then watched shortly after as C took about 500 miles of rubber off on my rig...she had all 4 rolling in smoke as she worked the ledges by the pond!!

    Pics of that pending....I was too busy crying over all that rubber to get out the camera...

    Very cool pics. I just wish there was a red fj40 in one of them. The thing is down there and needs to be wheeled! I broke the front axle shaft and ujoint last time there and just left it. Sure beats towing right now. Hope to make it down there this sunday for the day. Your pics are making me jealous! Hope you guys had a blast, I am still nursing one hell of a hangover....
