What do they have out there as far as obstacles?

I just had someone call me looking for RCV axles. They broke a D60!

The parking lot is muddy. Don't take a two wheel drive vehicle up there if you have the option.

The obstacle course was really muddy as well, so most people are just hammering down on it.

I had fun walking around the vendors area. Stopped in at Roco's now, not too sure about this place they let Tony and Sam inside.

I didn't make up there today.  We drove to Waynesville, NC yesterday morning to comfort some friends that lost their daughter.  Just got home.  Thinking about going up in the morning.

Sorry to hear about that Mike. I can't imagine anything worse than losing a child.

Just left. The mud is starting to dry up. It's kind of like horseshoe clay right now. Stopping at Lucky's and trying their wings.

Its pretty muddy but drying up. My wife drove her car out of the parking lot unassisted.
The last trail of the day I went up the "extreme" option. It was a very steep, 50 yard hill climb with roots covered in damp soil. I slammed back into a tree & it shattered out my rear glass. I spent 15 minutes getting all the glass off the ground.
There is always a bright side. The airflow thru the Jeep is amazing. I plan to remove the side windows & replace them all with tinted plexiglass. On cold or rainy days leave them in, on nice days pop them out.

Pretty sure I tried that option as well. The hill climb off "Wayne World Trail?" The Trail was pretty easy, but that hill climb was crazy. There were like 2 rocks to grab a hold of the whole way. I tried to my two attempts and failed, it was to slick. I thought the money was worth it to get out and see everything and go wheeling. It was a cluster though. I have never seen so many Jeeps. I had buddys on the easy trails saying it was taking them 1-2 hours to drive through.

Vendors had some stuff on sale, met the owner of Factor 55 and bought a Flatlink-E finally!

We ended up at GRJ Off-Road park most of Friday and Saturday. It was less packed and much more fun. I really enjoyed that place a lot. I really hope they get to stay open, it has a lot of promise.

Yeap. It resulted in the busted rear window. I blame the wet roots, rear view mirror snapped off 2 days before JF, tree, booster seat thrown in the back of my Jeep but mostly a inattentive driver.
Busy today. Total Jeeps registered: 2199 & one King of Hammers buggy. He actually won the Bounty Hill race at almost 6 seconds but was dq'ed for not having any Jeep parts on it.
