Welcome, yes Uwharrie is the closest legal spot aside from private land. I'm pretty close to you, probably within 15 minutes. I'll be riding with these guys next weekend too.
I used to do those beer fest things but after last year in Raleigh I think I'm out, pushed it a little too far! If you want to plan out a weekend to make a URE run lemme know
Man you need to get your priorities straight!!! I am in youngsville/ wakeforest area if you want to do some wrenching. We are heading out to the flats on oct 11-13 as well. You can give me a shout. 919-349- seventy 36. We work on our rigs all the time to get ready for the next event. I have 3 rigs waiting to get wrenched on but they are all toyotas. Come over and hang out anytime
Welcome! And don't get discouraged, there are a few Raleigh trails that are NOT posted that a group of us ride on the weekends without any problems. Check out Raleigh Area Wheelers (RAW) on facebook. That is where a lot of local guys post meets, wheeling locations and general info. It would be nice to have another XJ fewquently wheeling with us. I'm the lone ranger!!!
