WOW
« on: March 13, 2007, 07:41:18 am »
Out of more the 250 members no one is from the southeast.  Not upset in any way just think its a little funny.  I am in the Marine Corps and live in Jacksonville N.C.  there are a few good places to go in the Carolina's.  There is Uwharrie National Forest, Tellico, and a couple of smaller places to rock crawl and a lot of places to mud in N.C.  In S.C. the only thing I know of is Gulchies Off-Road Park.  I have a buddy thats says Al. is crazy to go rock crawling at.  Just trying to start some conversation here in the southeast.

Dominic

Thanks for posting, and trying to get something started.  I would also let all your friends know about the site, and get them to join here also. 

Thanks for your service to our country and fighting for our freedom to wheel.
I have 22 years in the Navy, and enjoy wheeling as much as humanly possible.  My wife says I am obsesseed with our jeeps, and wheeling.  hehe  I think she may be right.

Thanks

Dominic there are a bunch of people on here from Florida (FL4WDA - http://www.fl4wda.com/ ) and Alabama (SFWDA - http://www.sfwda.org/ ).. which I would say is the Southeast.  Let's see if we can get some of them to post up in here.  I'm sure there are others here from other places in the southeast too.

We're looking forward to it, John. 

We had a pretty good turn out at the annual Clean Up in Tellico last weekend.  I took pictures and forwarded them to Stefan.  The Forest Service will publish the statistics soon listing the # of people, amopunt of trash collected, etc.

Hey Y'all! Rick Casey here. I saw this and said WOW!...someone posted! Thanks Dominic.
Lots of us ex and active military here in the SE. More than anywhere else in the country.  ;)

I'm with the Carolina Full Size Jeep Club. I live in the upstate of SC and wheel Tellico and Uwharrie as much as possible. Which btw, is never enough.
I live about 45 mins from Gulches and have never been.   :o

We at the CFSJC have just celebrated our first anniversary and we're 25 member families strong. We spread from Florence, SC to Edenton, NC to Knoxville, TN.
Last year we adopted a trail ('Dickey Bell') at URE and look forward to another year of helping out in the forest.
This year we joined United and are commited to doing our part.

June 7-10th 2007 we are having our 5th annual FSJ East Coast Invasion at Uwharrie.
You may have never seen so many cool old Wagoneers, Cherokees and J-trucks, since the AMC dealers had them on the lot!

Hope to meet y'all on the trails.

Why yes, Florida is in the southeast, thanks for that reminder Shwan, I sometimes wonder  ;).

I am Jennifer, delegate to United from FL4WDA, Board member of FL4WDA, and member of the Ocala Jeep Club, 100 families in our club.  We spend most of our wheeling kicking up sand and dirt in the Ocala and Osceola National Forest.  Except Osceola is about 1/2 shut down at the moment from the wildfires of May.  Don't panic, the USFS is doing an emergency timber harvest to get rid of the damaged trees.  And, just an FYI , the lest damaged areas by the fire are the ones that had recent controlled burns to rid the forest floor of flammable debris.

Thought I'd chime in.  I am in the central part of NC, about 1 hour south of Raleigh.  I am very close to Uwharrie and that is my "home turf", so to speak.  I am up there regularly on weekends, when the trails are open.  I even make it during a weekday here and there because I wind up in Troy for work once in a while.

If any of you are planning at any time to hit Uwharrie, give me a shout and I'll see if I can ride along with you.  There are great campgrounds as well as camping along the trails.  There are lakes and the Uwharrie river for fishing, boating, swimming.  There are trails for your 4x4, dirt bike, atv, hiking horses and mountain bikes.  Most of the trails for 4x4's are just trail riding, but there are a few decent obstacles adn difficult lines to take if you know where to look.

The trails open back up in April, I beleive, so give me a call if you'd like to try it out.  910-639-3856

Dominic, as a former Marine myself, let me thank you for your service to our country.

Semper Fi,

John
