    Hey guys, just wanted to send out a heads up about a trail ride at Uhwarrie National Forest in Eldorado, NC on Sat, October 26th. I will put in a couple links here to the CNC website where you can find info on Uhwarrie under the trails/maps area.

    ALSO, a link to Triad4WDA which is a NO-dues club on Yahoo, who is the official group behind the run. More details will be posted on it as time goes by.

    The plan is to start with Dickey Bell which is rated Medium and I have drove it SEVERAL times as a stock K5 with 32 a/ts. No lockers, etc. Great trail to start with. We may go on to some bigger trails later or split into a big/lil dawgs and hit diff trails.

    Here are the links, shoot me an email if you are planning on going. We will be meeting at the Eldorado Outpost (Amoco station I think) at 10am that Saturday. You will want to pack a lunch to eat on the trail, and be ready to have some fun.

    Feel free to shoot me emails at sammyh@triad.rr.com if you need further directions/help, shoot the breeze, etc!

    CNC home page...go to TRAIL section

    Triad4wd Home page...its free join us!

    According to Mapquest it is like 375 miles one way to Uhwarrie from Rome GA? That is a LOOOONG way man, it looks as if Tellico is much closer to you?!?!?

    Type is Eldorado, NC in www.mapquest.com in the driving directions to get a map, they are off a bit in the directions but you can see how far this would be.

    (Looks too far for me to drive for a 6 hour trail ride for sure)
