There are a couple people going to Uwharrie at end of the month. Some cant make it due to ONSC Spring Tide Run and others are holding out for GSMTR...but if you have a need for some wheeling you are welcome to join us.

Just post here so I know whether to get a Group Camp at Badin Lake or if everyone is going to do their own thing.

Individual campsites like Arrowhead can run you $33 for two nights.....but if you have 3 people it is worth getting a Badin Group Camp Site as it is $80 for two nights with up to 50 people allowed....so the more the merrier.

Most of the other attendees are Georgia and NC...I am only SC that I am aware of.


Plans:

I plan on getting there after lunch on Friday, 29 April...close to 3-4pm at latest to set up camp, relax, and help anyone that is at Eldorado find way to camp.

Saturday- Hit a couple trails in morning and again in afternoon. Easy trails first and then if anyone wants can do DANIEL in afternoon. Lunch can either be at TrailHead or back at Eldorado Outpost...they have little buffet in there with chicken, sandwiches, burgers, etc and about anything you could want.

Sunday- Usually air up, gas up, and return home...but some that are local run a short trail that morning.

Things to bring: firewood if you have it, bags for your trash, way to cook and clean up for yourself or prepare to buy and eat at Outpost.

Be sure to inspect your vehicle for fluids, tire pressures, hand brake, coolant and anything else that you might find....at the top of Dickie Bell or Daniel is not the time to remember you are low on PS fluid or your brakes dont work. It is public trail so you are riding at your own risk.

Eldorado Outpost for Trail Pass, Food, Firewood, Gas, etc

Camping Locations I have stayed in Arrowhead and Badin Group Camp...both have restrooms, showers, etc.

Recreation.Gov for reserving camping sites at public facilities...create an account. We are going to get the Group Camp Site....I will post which we have before the event and everyone can pitch in to cover cost once there. I will go to Eldorado Outpost two or three times Friday evening to pick up people that cant find the campsite to lead them in as needed. Cell service at camp location is sketchy.

yep plenty of room...our site holds 50 ppl so bring a friend or two.

see you Friday and if not in camp by dark I will go to Outpost to look for stragglers....texting works better than phone calls at camp site if you have 2000UZJ or my cell it will help.

So if it is a group site I do not need to make reservations right? Also, is this the same camping area where we stayed when I was up there the last time? How far are the bath houses from the site?

No I already paid for the site and made reservations....everyone just shows up and you all can pitch in for the cost after you get there.

No this is different site...everyone camps together here.

Bath house, bathrooms are about 50 yards....hand pump well about 10 yards...also traditional outhouse style bathrooms from before the running water and showers in area too.

well we should have a good showing....i have lost track of the attendees from posts on 100 forum as well...but should be at least a dozen vehicles in attendance.

weather is scheduled to be rainy on Thursday and then 0% chance of rain on Friday and Saturday with temps during day near 75*F and at night in lower 50s. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Hell yea. This will be a blast. Posted this on the 100 tech but recent reports from TacomaWorld says it's rutted and washed out. The guys went 3 months ago and said the whole game has changed up there.

gets boring if it is the same but if you go more than once a year you find it is always changing depending on who was up there....storms....etc. It is no big deal really....just go with the flow, use spotters when needed, light steady foot on throttle and have FUN!!
