    If there were only one ride a year I were able to take, It'd be Potts

    You're between 2 ridges, isolated from EVERYTHING (including any and all cell signals) in one of the best primitive campgrounds I've ever stayed at.

    It's one of the most attended rides of the year

    The Clemons kids

    The views are amazing

    I haven’t been, but because of what I’ve been told my wife and kids are coming. It’s the only long distance ride my whole family is going on. It’s actually only 3 hours away but usually the whole family would just hit Big Creek and Uwharrie and I’m alone for anything else.

    We will most likely be doing it all in one day. Leave early, wheel and then come home.

    Just tell her like I tell mine, get your shit together we’re going for a Jeep ride. That should be good enough. Looking forward to this trip with the wife. Hopefully work doesn’t get in the way.

    While the ride is great, I enjoy the evenings by the campfire equally. The stories, the fellowship, the families. THAT'S what makes Potts the highlight of the year (to me anyway)

    Yeah that’s also my favorite part as well! My wife isn’t totally on board with camping with my little boy yet as he’s such a handful. She is still considering it. I’ve told her that’s the best part and what I look forward to the most. We shall see. I may have to put the foot down and say this is how it’s gonna be lol.

    If I talk my wife into camping can I bum a generator plug from someone for our box fan? I can probably barrow my buddy’s generator. I plan to buy one soon.

    For the few of us that don't camp, we generally stay at the Holiday Inn Express. It & 3 other Hotels, are right at the Salem exit off I-81.
