I had just found out about this site just before leaving for Iraq. I have a 78 fj40 and want to get involved with some wheeling trips. I just moved to this area so I don't know any places to wheel. I am used rock crawling on the Rubicon and Fordyce trails in California would like to find some rocks!! around here.

Welcome back, thanks for serving, by the way...

Got a tow rig? Tellico is open year-round. There's also a "playground" type place that's nothing but a bunch of obstacles that ranges from mild to extremely tough outside of Asheville, the owners have "open invites" about once a month.

Uwharrie is closed until 4/1/06. It closes every year from mid Dec to early April to help prevent erosion and assist with stream and trail preservation.

Fun place but not very big or extremely difficult. There are some easy lines and def some harder lines but it's not like Tellico or Windrock farther west.

It's a good and accessible spot for eastern / central North Carolinians though.

Here is a link:

Hey Andy. Is there an anual event at URE every year thats for cruisers? I really liked that place. Maybe create an event every year there? The longer we have to plan the better it will be.

No, not currently that I know of - not with ONSC or Carolina Cruisers anyway. There are some out of state Cruiser clubs / groups that go during the year, but still not a once a year Cruiser event.

The Rover crowd has a big event every year called Uwharrie Safari that I've been to and it would be cool to eventually emulate something like that in terms of participation, # of rigs, weekend events, etc. It's a big deal and folks come from all over the country.

I'd be down to help get it together. It would be small at first as you've seen by attendance numbers (or lack thereof) from this side of the border...

I am willling to get some things together for an event, planning now would make attendance more feasable for those who need time to create space in there schedules. Andy if at some point you want to get together and start planning this let me know.
