    I ended up going. I towed my Toyota up there with my K5. Wasn't planing on wheeling the K5, but a 4 door Tahoe,@96 to 98 year, broke something in the front diff and then coming up Kodak, bypass, stripped out the rear diff. I was going to leave out, but he had kids with him and didn't want the kids to be out there at night. Long story short...I got my K5 and towed it from Kodak to the double parking lot. Pretty interesting. My camera guy didn't even snap a few for me. He's been fired!
    Didn't see any other K5's out there from the board, but ran into BigOrangeK5(ASH) and BJ, forgot his user name. I talked with them for awhile. Ash was up there with the Suzuki crowd. Good to meet others from this board.

    This my Toy that I just finished building the last week of March. I took it up to URE the opening weekend for it's maiden trailride. Didn't even do any wheeling locally to really test it out. But, everything worked good. I decided to take up to URE for the Suzuki thing. A friend of mine has a Samurai and he wanted to go see all of rigs up there.

    If the truck would have been like it is now, I sure as hell would have been there. Anyone planning on going anytime soon. Weather sure is nice and want to do some camping as well.

    I didn't make it for the 16 thru 18th. I did go this past weekend and weather was nice but dusty as a mofo! Even the ATV'ers had dust masks on! It was like 6 inches of powder up there. Be back up there in a couple weeks probably since I am only about an hour away. If anyone is going sometime let me know and we can meet up.

    Hell yeah I went. I put some MAJOR scars on the Zuk.

    Here's the list:

    Dented items:
    framerail
    gas tank skid plate
    pass. side rocker panel
    forward rear leaf spring hanger

    DESTROYED items:
    transmission crossmember

    other notables:
    cut another tire (IT DIDN'T GO FLAT THIS TIME, AND IT WASN'T AT ELDORADO OUTPOST)
    scratched the front bumper (that's a joke)


    Sadly enough, all of this happened to the Zuk on one obstacle...Kodiak rock.

    I overheard a guy say I couldn't get up the first ledge that's like 3' tall. I have video proof that I did get up it. It kinda made me feel bad that I could go ALMOST anywhere those other Zuks did sitting stock height on 29" tires.

    6" of dust you say. Yeah, that sounds about like Uwharrie. I have been up there when it rained pretty good the night before and there was still dust everywhere. I live about 45 minutes from uwharrie, and try to go there as much as I can. Next time I plan a trip I will let you know and we can go wheeling.

    So you were there last weekend Bushwacker? My club from Virginia Tech was down there wheelin. We stayed at Hunt Camp. I broke 2 body mounts on Thursday so I rode along the rest of the weekend. The biggest truck in our group was a black 79 Ramcharger on 38.5s and 1 ton... And oh yeah it was dusty alright I took the top off and now you can imagine how bad it is inside....

    Yeah we rolled by hunt camp about 9:30 or so and rode till around 5 and headed out. We did see a bunch of folks at hunt camp, must have been you all. I saw a couple Ramchargers on the trail. What were you driving? I was in a large blue Chevy truck. That dust sucked...took me a few days to clean the whole rig in and out!! but the jeeps with me were worse off cause they had no tops!!
