    I'm the friend Dylan heard it from.

    He's ok, and last I heard from him someone(s?) Showed up to help him out. Haven't heard anything in about 30 mins, so presuming they busy flipping his rig over

    And, I believe he's from FL too. Talk about double whammy.

    I'll bet on the only Hill climb. It was getting pretty rough the last time I was up there.

    Looks like he was well prepared. He's got everything in there, including the kitchen sink.

    URE is cursed......100% convinced.

    Also his tires don't look very aired down. The snorkel almost saved his A pillar! I bet that was a slippery flop :rolleyes:

    Because it's the home turf test track. Few take it seriously. You'll see more carnage there than places like AOP from locals because they're too comfortable

    I just went all over there on a day trip Thursday. The chute on Dutch John was a little slick and the holes are getting a little deep on the turn part of the way up it. Without a locker you definitely need a little momentum to carry you through them.

    How aggressively are the trails marked for difficulty these days?

    Dry ground equals a day of traction and fun.

    Almost any moisture equals a day of challenge and paying attention to details.

    Soaking rain equals the pinball wizard approach, maybe even on the main roads.

    Not many places have the unique soil mixture of clay. The UNF trails comprise of a special blend that uniquely turns to frictionless snot. Folks from out of town get a rude awakening.

    Very spot on, with the variance weather changes uwharrie, and Dutch John only has a few obstacles but when there is a little water it does get slick. If it’s raining it’s ass off the chute can be a bitch, but same thing when headed down the rock sections before you get to it. Thursday I was wheeling a friends cherokee on 33” bfg muds, I slid down a few trying not to lock the brakes up and trans in neutral on Dutch John. I mean it was 1-2 ft at a time but I could see that freaking out a newer person. The rear locker helped with the chute but it was still clawing its way up. Them holes could send a unsuspecting driver on their side from climbing up the walls.

    Next time, put it in low gear and let it walk it's way down the hill. Using the brakes induces slides.

    That was tried at first, but wasn’t working out to well by going faster than what I wanted it to. Even a few times pushing through the brakes it almost felt like.
