So lets finalize some details.

I am going to try to be there around 4 on Friday. I thought maybe we could set an early Friday meet up and then everyone else who is coming Friday can meet at the camp area later.

How about....? (let me know what you think about these times)

Friday, early meet up - 4:00 at the Outpost

Friday, camp site - around 7:30 at the open site along Wolf's Den. We will enter from the service road, so if you do not get to the right place we will still pass you. We can send runners both ways to catch any late comers.

Friday, Night time trail ride - leave about 9:30 - 10.

Saturday, meet up - 9:00 at the outpost.

Sounds good. I will be there probably around 3, so I will go check out the spot.

I am hoping to be installing a pair of Light Racing control arms Friday night. If they arrive by then. Very Happy

I don't think you need one on the 4th Gen. The ball joint is clamped in the top of there spindle with two bolts.

Chad, the seperater will make things easier when disconnecting the ball joint to the spindle.

Sure but it will also tear up the ball joint boot. Listen the clamp screws and beat the hell out of the spindle witha hammer and it will come lose by itself.

I may be a bit later than originally planned on Friday night. Sold my boat, and of course the guy wants to pick it up on Friday. Hopefully that goes quickly and I can get out there before the sun goes down.

Now you can buy a camper. I picked up the Mobile Chateau Lefler yesterday afternoon. bounce I also got a seat belt ticket for not having my seat belt on as I pulled out of subway. Damn I hate that crap.

No, it is not trail ready, YET. No honestly, it is just a little 8' pop-up camper. However it is like new and has a great AC. We are going to camp out in the campground for most of our future Uwharrie trips. I am also going to set-up a Windrock/coal creek trip for next Summer.

I'm very close to getting the camper. All depends on if they still have the one I wanted. We'll see... Smile

It looks big in the picture. It's only 19'. The hybrid style pop outs make it appear much bigger.....

But seriously, it would be nice to have a small pop camper for trips like this!

On a side note I tracekd my UCA's and they should be here Friday around 6 pm. I will be installing them that night and heading out to meet you guys on saturday, Lord willing.

Yeah, wait until the little one comes Bobby and you have a car seat in there. I bet I can count the times you will camp IN you 4runner on one hand and still have 4 fingers left over. I will be in a tent, with an air mattress and blanket on Friday. Very Happy

Speaking of which, looks like I will not be able to get there early on Friday. If I leave early I won't be able to see my wife and kids that day, so she has asked me to leave after supper. I will be at the campsite around 6:30 - 7.
