Got to the outpost at 10:15, grabbed some goodies and hung out till 11 but missed you. I ended up exploring the park solo which was fun. Followed 576 all the way to the end, saw the big dam on the river through the trees. Stopped on Falls Dam trail and cooked lunch and then finished the Falls Dam trail solo.

Being wet, it was a very different experience. Sliding around on the whoopdeedoos, and drifting a bit on the steeper down slopes. But it wasn't like soupy mud, just the top inch was wet. Still everything felt rather slick compared to when its dry. I didn't attempt anything that I might have gotten stuck on.
I had no recovery gear and was totally alone so I decided to be cautious.
I still had a blast though.

I didn't know people were allowed to hunt in the Uwharrie forest. But there were hunters everywhere. They were even unloading fresh deer in the outpost parking lot. I've always wanted to go hunting.

Damn yuri we just missed each other. I sat at theoutpost till about 10 after then headed out. I ran all the trai i thought you might head towards then sat at kodak roxk for an hour thinking you might come past that area. After that i gave up on finding you and attempted stupid lines and got a bunch of denials. Beeing wet like it was today made even the most mundane hill climbs interesting. The climb up to kodak rock had me on the rev limiter top to bottom. Dickey bell was a lot more funsince steering was impossible. You just lined up and hit the gas and held on till you made the top or got denied. I think i took 5 trys to get up dickey bell and finally made it up with a rev limiter assualt. Ill report back on damage after i chisel the clay coating off my truck.

Punctuality is not my strong point. ;-)

That clay stays slick once its wet. I need to hose off my FJ now.
Are you going back tomorrow???

I dont remember Uwharrie ever being more slick than it was today....

I have bent yet another tie rod and think one of my wheels is bent.... I have a rediculous shaking even after cleaning off the muck and mud. Im gonna take it to the shop tomorrow and see if the wheels are still true.
