James Duff's Ford Fall Crawl @ Windrock Nov. 11-13 2016
« on: November 28, 2016, 11:05:36 PM »
I know this forum is mostly Jeeps (like most offroad forums) but I always like web wheeling when going to bed despite what make/model so I'll post up my latest run. James Duff's hosts a crawl every year at Windrock during the 2nd week of November. I was hoping to go on my first run with GATR but this was scheduled on the same weekend and I was already registered. This is alot poser pics as I didnt have my wife with me this year to snap pics. I'm just copying and pasting the trip from my Bronco forum and Pirate.

There are more pics/videos supposedly on James Duff/Suzy Duff/Michael Duff's Facebook page.


Thursday night was James Duff's open house. Just a few pics of the facility. I took a bunch of the arms naturally.




















JD gave everyone who registered and attended a YETI style roadie that was powder coated. Good people over there. I even got to meet the "James Duff". A very humble guy who was willing to chat with me about my measly fullsize.





A few pics of the scenery on the way up the mountains....





Pulled up to the park and set up camp for the weekend...




And a few of the limited pics I got while wheeling...

Tore off both rear calipers on that trail and spent about 2 hours collectively on the trail that day trying to pull the calipers and tie them up on the leafs without crimping the line. Ran to Advance to score some new pads, rotors, and calipers. Spent the night repairing it so I could ride Saturday. Someone snapped this pic....




Found a gnarly v-notch on Saturday....
















Rode a bit more on Sunday before I headed back but no pics. The wife of the BII took a few videos. Nothing crazy, mostly some scenic trails although we did run gatekeeper.

I've seen videos of some very gnarly stuff out there. There's also tons of trails that are easy to difficult with out going EXTREME...

Yes there are some good ones also. I tend to go the hard route....
We had to be winched down a nasty drop off ledge on one trail

Agreed. This was my 3rd visit and I've only seen about 1/3 of the park. I love it. I almost rolled back down the mountain after my first caliper was ripped off. Suffice it say, the place will humble you in a minute...thats for sure. But the views are amazing. At least for the east coast.

Looking forward to meeting up and running some trails with you guys.
