    So I can start on my excuses now.:D I have already seen some posts refering to "stock/wifes/can't/won't/shouldn't" so I'm wondering what I'm in for.

    A crap load 'o fun.
    I did a lot worse stuff in Louisiana, mainly because of the swampy areas and those damn cypress roots!!! And most of the places we went were relatively flat. Uwharrie has some steep red clay trails and rocky hill sides. You can go around the rocky stuff.

    NC red clay is some slick chit, like red grease though when it gets soaking wet, damp and you can barely spin a mud tire, because it grips so good.


    Others have a lot more experience there though...........

    Sounds like a fun last run on my unlocked axles. No way I will have the 14BFF in on time.

    In Az, and sometimes around here, the biggest problem I have is being the biggest thing on the trail - turning radius.

    There are 2 trails rated for "hard". One being Daniel and the other is Rocky Mountain Loop (I think).

    Daniel is a pretty good trail. Going to be tight on the switchbacks for your burb but shouldn't be too hard. You will have to back up a few time to make the turns. On one there is/was a ledge. A pretty good sized one but with moderate, let me say that again, MODERATE, skinny pedal shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

    Another exciting one is Kodak Rock. A bypass around it but the 2 lines to take are pretty fun. Usually alot of people hanging around and watching the trucks make it up. A gathering for the locals and curious.

    Everything else around URE is pretty much a nature ride but some spots can be made a little harder, just depending on which lines you take.

    X2 on the clay, dont sweat the trails take your time and it will be cake. Picking a good line is easy, even if you mess it up you can stack rocks like me.:D

    Don't listen to these guys. URE is about 10x harder than anything tellico has to offer. I'd suggest a winch and front/rear full lockers.

    Nothing like mud and a 12,000lb truck.:D This is what happened last time - My "navigator" led me down the ATV only trails that the guy told us we would never make it through on accident. You should have seen the looks on the Quad guy's faces -
