    Well, Left out on Thursday to drive up to Murphy. We got up there @ 9:30pm and set up camp. We did nothing but F4 trails. Friday...Upper and Lower 2 without any winching. Then on Saturday, we did Guardrail(Staircase),Helicoper pad and School Bus. No winching required. With a little bump, I walked right up everything. Having beadlocks makes a big difference.
    I got some body damage from Upper/Lower 2. Other than that... wish some of you guys could have been there. It was a great weekend of wheeling. We never made it to slickrock, but that will be another time.
    Pics will be posted soon. Thanks
    Guardrail

    I don't know the time to get there, but go onto Map Quest and see how long it would take.
    Are you near Carolina Beach? I have a few friends there, one has or had a nice Cherokee. His name is Al Welborn.
    He works at Audio Express.
    What's your name?

    Re: Tellico Nov. 14?

    Yeah right! When I went last April for the CK5 run, it took us around sixteen hrs to get back and 22hrs to get there with all of our problems we had. But the return trip only had one little hold up. so I wouldn't trust map quest. it told us ten hrs. My buddy drove back in a blazer by himself and he did it in 11 hrs. So I am alittle wearry of those times they give you.
    I am going to wait until the next CK5 run there next april. But it is a real good time if yall make it. I had a blast despite the driving to get there. hence the reason we are making it a once a year trip. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    The place to stay will be Crawford's. I believe there is
    cabins up there also.
    I will keep updates coming.

    As of right now there is a post here on CK5 and Pirate about Nov. 14. Looks as if several people are planning on
    meeting up there.
    I have probly 6 very capable vehicles coming with me.

    Please PM me if you are planning on coming for a
    good weekend.

    The only thing that will stop us from going will be
    rain or snow. In that case...we are going to Uwharrie.

    Thanks
    Mike B
