    Just got stteld in at home, we had a blast. Some of the best east coast wheelin I have ever seen. We had a joint ride with Central North Carolina 4x4, an awesome group of fellow wheelers that love what they do and do it well. To Lucas aka @Buddy_Holly , that is the hardest I have ever seen a yj on 33,s wheeled!

    I did not get a ton of pictures being that u was driving.

    Our Club Comander, Michael Qaurez and I arrived on Thursday afternoon by about 5, we got camp set up and grilled up some killer steaks and kabobs. CNC 4x4 was rolling into there camp ground a few miles away that evening. Mike and I about had the place to ourselves except for some PA, New Jersey locals that were camping next to us.
    I had one of them convinced I was grilling Possum.
    We met up with CNC next morning and headed out, I couldnt remember all the trail names, but they were all awesome. Ronnie with CNC had his very awesome TJ on 40,s, John with his Toyota Truggy that looked like it had rolled down the side if Mt Everest that would crawl anywhere, Lucas with his 4 cylinders of furry YJ, another guy from New York on Friday, And a guy from Jersey on Sat.

    Sat we hit it hard first thing, we went straight to Rock Creek, the giant glacier deposit . It is intense, seems like a half mile long.mega boulder field. If you want intense rock crawl in, it doesn't get much better. That trail can chew you up and spit you out!

    We all made it through, but not without damage! The Toyota brokea hub, Robbie broke a transmission mount, and Lucas made it through the last section on 33,s with a relentless pounding! About 30 yds out of the boulder field the drag link sheered off at the tie rod. So glad it didn't happen in the boulders !

    We fixed and patched them all up and hit several more trails that day, and of course we all said one more trail where of course we broke another rig!

    Would definetly go back up there!

    Glad you guys had a good time! I just finished unpacking my stuff and pounding some dents out so my tailgate will shut. To Jason, Mike, Chris, and Robbie, I can't thank you guys enough. Not sure I would have been able to patch the steering up if it weren't for your help.

    I am waiting on Matt to email me all his pictures. Here are a few of mine: 20160604_164153.jpg 20160604_153928.jpg 20160604_130708.jpg 20160604_114814.jpg 20160603_122504.jpg 20160603_120440.jpg 076.jpg

    Actually, It was pretty sunny on Saturday afternoon, but the clouds and a little light rain made it pretty comfortable. I have a few pics I will post later. I don't have a strong enough signal here at the house.

    Great trip.
    Thursday was a cluster F. Start the day with a flat tire on the truck, fixed it and hit the road. Ronnie and I were going to meet at a pilot where 95 and 85 meet at noon. I get a call at 1230 "hey man im 1/2 a mile from my exit and im out of gas". I sent Lucas out to perform AAA duties, that lunch stop took 2 hours. From there it was traffic, traffic and more traffic. 5.5 hours from the pilot we were in Gettysburg. We finally pulled in to echo valley around 9pm.

    Friday we ran O trail, Walk in the park, trail 8, some stuff on the comp course and otters way. Saturday was rock creek and trail 16 then back to camp to repair the YJ. From there we did some stuff over by jotters way, then stair step and finally "one more trail" was walk in the park. Lucas broke a shaft on that trail and someone not in our group ran out of gas. When we left where CTB was camping the bottom fell out and we got soaked loading up. We had heard the weather was going to be "really bad" on sunday so we packed up and hit the road sat night. Made to Ashland and found a hotel.
