The Carolina Trail Blazers has a plan to help Scott with some money both via a grant from Southern 4 Wheel Drive Association (approved and $$ on the way) and matching club funds. This will support a vehicle purchase (his CJ7) which will then be raffled off to raise more money for him.
In addition anyone wanting to support him with a donation to offset his medical/living expenses can make a donation thru PayPal to:
payment@carolina-trailblazers.org
mark all payments "For Scott"
All money collected by Sunday April 22, 2018 will be given to Scott the following week.

I will provide an account of all additional money raised and post here.
Thank you on his behalf for the love and support.
The plan was simple. Ten days, nine nights. Drive from Raleigh to Asheville and back. Don’t drive further than 100 miles a day. Don’t leave North Carolina. Don’t drive on the highway. Camp every night. Dirt every day.
Ten days, nine nights, 1000 miles. Three weeks to get ready.
Last weekend my '99 Cherokee XJ 4.0L - started to run hot - "check gauges" dash light came on. I immediately pulled over, and I noticed that there was no coolant in the reservoir. Filled it up and went on my way without issue. This is odd because I checked, and added some the week before. I usually check my fluids on a regular basis. Today the "check gauges" light came on again because it was running hot again. Pulled over again ready to fill up the reservoir, but this time it was full!??? Drove part of the way to work (just a few minutes) with the heat blasting to keep the engine temp down, but then the rest of the way to work I turned off the heat and everything seemed fine. Even while sitting at lights a couple times for over a minute or more, the temp gauge didn't climb. ... Continue to troubleshooting......
I have to voice my extreme disappointment and disgust with the Chrysler corporation, mainly the RAM division and it's customer service or lack there of.

On Thursday the 30th of July, approx. 9:30am, my 10 month old, 2014 Ram 3500 Dually with just barely 20K miles on it suffered a catastrophic failure. While going up Black Mtn. in the western part of NC, I hear a loud plastic snap sound from under the hood. I pull over immediately, raise the hood to steam and antifreeze spraying all over the engine compartment. After letting it cool for about a half hour, I was able to see all the damage that had been done in those brief few seconds. A piece of the rubber that ties the two fan shrouds together had come loose. The fan sucked the 2" rubber cover into it, causing the fan to make severe contact with the radiator. The fan had cut a 4" circular slice into the radiator, loosing the bulk of the antifeeze on the shoulder of the road where I sat stranded, less than half way up the Mtn. Continue reading......
Last weekend myself and a few buddies loaded up and headed to Windrock for the sole purpose of doing something stupid, wheeling the Walden's Ridge trail. What is Walden' Ridge you ask? Well, it is a ridge line trail on the top of a mountain near trail 75. There are drop offs easily reaching 500+' on each side. This is definitely not a trail for the faint of heart!

Our group consisted of @woodrow, @EdJonesJeeper, @McCracken, an XJ on 37s, another TJ on 35s, a YJ on 37s and myself. We all completed the trail with the SWB Jeeps getting the assistance of a winch down the final drop (which is probably 5-6' tall), Except for @EdJonesJeeper because he is the man.
