Just had another heavy downpour here.

If anything, URE's difficulty level should be up a few points cyclops

The weather map showed Uwharrie getting heavier showers for a longer period of time. I say we hit Dutch John or the rocky mount hill first thing. Those areas have the slick red clay.

There is a hill climb area if you go the opposite way we normally go. I think it is before saw mill and therefore open. It's not incredibly difficult but would likely be slick.

Look at this link. If rocky mount loop is clock it would be at 12. We always go the other way because of Kodak rock, but it is a fun little area.

I'm sitting across the river from URE and its been raining steady since the early afternoon heavy rain. The heavy stuff was short-lived, but URE should be nice and wet by 9 tomorrow. Very Happy

I was in the 263rd CBCS, which is adjacent to the 118th. That's why I was asking. I grew up in that area.

We used to do some stuff with the 118th, and used to use a bunch of buildings belonging to the 145th (Prime Beef) guys...now we lease a warehouse right across from the southern gate. Great area over here, really down to earth good folk for the most part. I spend a week every six weeks here at "the Warehouse."

Had a great time at URE today even with my minor breakage....upper link snapped, they are very wimpy.

I want to thank you guys for helping so much with the install. I hardly even got my freaking hands dirty....awesome!

And the 4runner went anywhere I wanted it to, I was super impressed with the front end locked

It was dry by mid afternoon when we ran it. Everyone made it up, except Adam, he parked in the lot. He probably could have made it, but too much of a risk of messing something up

The FJ acquired some more trail rash. Daniel has not been kind to me this year. The ledges are a piece of cake for me, but that damn tree. Next time I go up Daniel I am filling in all the ruts with rocks. I dont care if people dont like that. All things considered though, things could have been worse.

There is no way I would have made Daniel without screwing some stuff up. Was nice to see it though! Great ride overall too! I have some pics and videos to post up, probably tomorrow!

Fun day again. I feel bad putting Brian on a terrible line in that little ditch just after the first ledge on Daniel.

Although Brock made Brian's line look pretty good affraid

Came out today with a bud an my 2yo. Didn't get there till noonish... Ran rocky mt and slab pile hoping to run across y'all somewhere.
Then went fishing... Good times, but wish I had caught up with y'all.

No worries, it happens. A minor scuff on the FJ, scaring Adam from ever doing Daniel, and getting my wife curious about a higher life insurance policy is all that happened. Very Happy

No doubt on brock making Brians line look crazy. I have video of it and he definitely had it on his two passenger tires for a second. I swore he was gonna flop when he started dogging it.

Definitely had a good time with all you guys out there!
