    O.k. folks, I will email the group again, but please post on this thread if your going, when your going to arrive, and what your going wheel (K5, K10, Jeep ect) Also you dont have to give a total rig breakdown, but what are you up for as far as trails go, do you have a winch?

    I will be going up Thursday afternoon, and will probably run some rough trails Friday morning. Everybody is going to meet in the Wal-Mart Parking lot in Murphy on Friday eve. somewhere between 5-6:30 pm. We will probably go and eat after oogling each others rigs. Saturday morning we will meet at the NC paystation, it has tow rig parking and is accessable by cars as well. Meeting time is 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

    I'm going to try and be there Friday afternoon along with Bill (79Beast) and Shane. I have a '72 LWB Chevy on 39.5s, one-ton and lockers, but no winch. Bill has '79 Chevy on 44s, one-ton and lockers with a winch. Shane has 1st gen Bronco on 36s, lockers, winch, etc. Bill and I have never been, but Shane has gone a bunch of times. I just want to hit some challenging trails, so I'll just try to follow the crowd. My only drawback is no winch and my driving. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I am coming up on Fri afternoon. Leaving Va Beach around 6am. So how ever long it takes us to trailer the 2 rigs on one trailer. Staying @ crawfords.
    1 83 k5 with 8k winch,stock gears and 35 grabber ap's, Not sure on how much I want to rip it up.
    1 k10 on 38's not sure of the gearring, probly have a 9k winch mounted prior to gettin there.
    My wife and youngin are comin so I will probly watch more than anything. I do want to try some of the trails to gain some experiance /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif since I mostly mud run. I don't know the trails at all so I will be listening in what trails I think I may hit. Advice is more than welcomed /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    We will see about Fri night since we aint sure on our arrival. We are figuring 9 hrs. of drive plus settin up camp.

    If I can get my tranny back in (sheared the output shaft off the SM465) I'll be there midday Friday with my 79 K10 with stretched wheelbase FF14 rear with 5.13s, disc brakes, and detroit front D60 with 5.13s detroit 35spline stubs, crossover steering, 8000lb winch on the front, 18.5x44-16.5 TSLs. 72 Thing will be with me and is similarly set up with a 72 C10 running 4.56s with 39" TSLs on 15s. We intend to run pretty difficult trails. We will more than likely be bringing a buddy with a 69 Ford Bronco with Teralow gears in the Tcase, 302, 9" rear with 1.5" axles, spool, and 4.88s. His front D44 has 4.88s with a truetrac and he runs chromoly axles and 37" Boggers.

    AWWWWeee! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif We be getting close here gentlemen and ladys.
    Damn, you guys are gonna make me look small here with this talk of "42's /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Keith, How is the newest wheeler in the family coming along? Great I hope.

    The wife and another possible back seat loofer. We are "planning" on being there and "READY" by 3:00 (ISH).
    Depending on what I find after crawling of this site into the land of cabin or hotel for the wife. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hopefully I'll be sporting my 400 tranny. But other than that, it'll be the same rig as the Dixie Run.

    OH WAIT.. Yeah Yeah, that's it I forgot about the Detroit in the Rear. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    If I can keep the front together we'll be a happy camper. Devil Dog!! You might wanna make note to bring the welder and "another" steering box. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Planning on the hotel diagonally positioned adjacent to the Wally World parking lot.

    Channel 4 on the cb sounds fine to me.

    Just so yall know, I have 14 bolt rear Dana 60 front with crossover, both have 4.56 gears and Detroits. 35 spline stubs and hubs with forged ujoints on the front. 39.5" Tsl's on Allied Beadlocks, HS9500i on the front, on board air, and welder (will have both MIG and Hight Frequency D/C ARC welding). If ya break I think Keith and I can get you fixed, and or out.

    Spare parts=axles,u-joints,steering parts. I carry tons plus Dep carries a Unassebled Blazer in the rear /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I finally talked him out of carrying an ammo can full of bolts. Had to weight 20+ lbs. We carry extra oil change, dif fluid, well all fluids for that matter. I think Grim had a write up a few months back that might be helpful to review. Please have winch points front and rear on your trucks. If not we hook to the tie rod /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Sounds like we will have a great time

    Well, no decisions yet. I'll ponder it a day or 2 and make an executive decision.
