All,

If you weren't at the Meet and Greet this past weekend we announced our March Ride as Gulches ORV park in Laurens, SC. Laurens is just southeast of Greenville/Spartanburg, SC and about a 4.5 hour drive from Raleigh, closer for the Triad and Queen City groups.
I've spoken with our president, and he will head this group up. I'm going to see if anyone from UC is going to be there that weekend, and might show us the ropes around.
I'm choosing for the group to go 21-22Mar2009. The following weekend, 28MAR2009 is the Gulches Head to Head 4x4 Challenge, so it could be busy, but it may interest those who would like to make this trip. Unless there is strong opposition to the 21-22 of March, we will set the trip for that weekend. I hate for you guys to get down there, and not have a place to stay, because everyone has scarfed up the campsites. I hear there isn't much around, unless you go back into the Greenville/Spartanburg area.

Info:
Hours: 10am to dusk on Sat., 11am to 6pm
Cost: $20 a truck/driver + $5 membership fee
$5 for Riders Riverside Camping is $10, with a $20 security deposit

Website: Gulches Off*Road Vehicle Park

What should work is for the Triangles meet up with the Triads somewhere on 85, then pick up the Queens further down. We can iron this out later.

If you have any questions or advice, please let me know.

So are we planning to drive down Friday night or Saturday morning? The only reason I ask is that it looks like you pay by the day, so if we want to get a full day of wheeling in it would be better to head down Friday, wheel all Saturday, and head home Sunday morning. If they will let us wheel Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning as one full day, then that would be fine too. I don't want to complicate things, just throwing that out for consideration...

I was going to leave that up to Greg, but since Gulches doesn't open until 10am, I thought leaving early Sat. morning could work.

Rats! If it's not raining I'm scheduled to be on Edisto for Troll's BBQ competition and camping/meeting with some Low Country Chapter Cruisers.
If it rains I'll come to Gulches and watch you guys tear up stuff. I'm leaving my road/sand tires on until after a Hatteras or Carolina Beach trip Spring Break. [Anybody want to join that? Hijack off]
Beware the Gulches mud! Wash it off before it becomes concrete. Ask me how I know.

You guys have fun. Also if things go well, I will be adding phrogger's 1991 80 series to the family by this weekend for my 18 year old daughter, she is very exited...and so am I.

Drew here from UC - I was planning on going this weekend but it looks like rain for the next few days... I'll plan on joining you guys on the 21st. Let me know if anyone needs a place to crash as I live about 30mins north of Gulches.

We are planning to start truck safety inspections on this trail ride. Here is a link to the TLCA requirements.

Vehicle Inspection Requirements

ONSC has the additional requirement that each truck have a FRS/GMRS two-way radio.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to PM or email me and we can discuss.

alright well I'm back and am trying to figure out who may be going, if the turnout is only going to be 2 or 3 I would like to consider maybe a closer alternative. The 80 is going to be down here shortly for a little while and if postponed I planned to start on things a bit earlier.

Thoughts? Clint I saw your other post what are your plans?

I could be down for a CB trip. I will be down there for a funeral late this week and would make a weekend out of it.

Weather looks to be sunny and in the upper 50's this Saturday.
