Full Size Fall Ride - hosted by the Carolina Full Size Jeep Club
Oct. 23-25, 2015
Uwharrie National Forest (near Troy, NC)
Art Lilley Camp near the Falls Dam parking lot

This is a weekend to gather together and ride.
No raffle, no souvenir tshirts, no schedule.
Bring your Jeep, tools, spare parts, camp food, tent, etc.
You are responsible for your trail pass.
Camping is primitive beside a gravel lot. Pit toilets available, no water, no electricity.

This event is open to anyone with a full size Jeep. So if you missed out on ECI, we'd love to see you here.

Post up your plans to attend.

God willing, I want to be there this time. All I have to do is keep that bucket of bolts together. LOL So far I'm about 2 months into driving after the swap and no major glitches.

Someone on another board asked about the trails... so I thought I'd share this here too. We have had stock vehicles on more than just the easy trails without damage during dry conditions. Check out these photos for typical trail conditions during dry weather, along with a few pictures of some obstacles. Rainy weather makes for more challenging trail conditions.

Sorry for the late post...
Turn out was low compared to past years, but we really enjoyed talking with these nice folks. The sunshine was nice, the fall leaves were near peak colors, and the moon was nearly full that night.

It was the "year of the J truck" at this Fall Ride

I just found this post, Nikkormat, or I would have thanked you for the compliment earlier. It runs pretty good, also.
