Yeah, I think we will be ok. The weather may dictate our trail choice though.

NOAA is now showing less than 10% chance for rain, the Weather Channel is sticking with 50% Very Happy

Which trails are safer in the rain?

Wolfsden is always safe, similar to that of a gravel road.

Actually one down hill section of Wolfs Den will spit you off the trail really quick!


The thing you have to try and do is stay away from the clay. The dark red nasty stuff. Dickey Bell is a good one to run in the rain, and Daniel is more of the orangeish sediment instead of the clay. Half of Rocky Mtn Loop is also.....but the entire area near the lake is red slick clay.


The best thing to do is pick a trail and run it......try to stay off the brakes going down hill and try to plan a run with few down hill sections. If you lock your brakes up and slide down a hill you have no control.

It dries out SUPER quick though, give it 1-2 hrs of sun light and it will be dry. You all should be fine.

Probably won't rain anyway, but if it does we can go slow and be careful. There is always a chance of damage, but that is somewhat the fun and anxiety in it all. I think as long as no one is running those crappy GY Duratrac tires we will be ok.

So I don't know if I feel comfortable taking my fj through URE. However I still want to come, if the weathers good I will prob ride my fourwheeler but if not could I hitch a ride with someone?

Does anyone coming from the east of URE want to meet somewhere and convoy up and maybe stop in Asheboro for a quick breakfast first?

Lunch? Good thing you mentioned that. My wife usually packs all that for me - but since she's gone for the week, I would have starved to death out there!

Guess I'll have to make me a sammich to bring along.

I can also take a passenger, if you prefer an FJ. I would bring your FJ though. I think once see see some of the trails you will want to drive your own a bit. Honestly half of the trails there can be easily done with a stock FJ. I am packing a lunch.

My lower rear link mount guards came in today and my diff skid is suppose to arrive tomorrow. I was hoping to have them on by tomorrow, but not sure that will happen. Less than 2 days now!!

i honestly believe that you can go everywhere except Daniel with a stock FJ...i think honestly like Brian that once you see the trails you are going to want to drive your own ride...you will have fun as a passenger but more fun driving ...i have seen a hoda civic with oversized tires go thru URE ..so IMO you can do it with a stock FJ...
