Here are some pictures of my new X. It's about a month old, and has seen the mud a couple times already...much fun!


The wife, dogs, and I took a drive on the parkway tonight, here are some pictures...beautiful sunset




Already took the mud flaps off, changed the oil after 1200 miles, and am looking at an intake and exhaust set up...I think I might get addicted :cheers:

I wonder if the small dog is looking at the side of the X and thinking "where are those nice mud flaps, and what about some step rails?", while the big dog is thinking "dammit, get this thing Shrocked!" :)

Froth14: Where in Carolina do you wheel? Don't know where King is, unless that is around Kings Mtn. I went to college in G'boro and used to romp and stomp all over Western NC: Pisgah, G'father Mtn, Brevard, Boone. Love to go back if you know some good trails. Post 'em if you know of any. Possibly meet up if your game. I'm in Alpharetta, GA.

It's already too late, you've got mud on it. There is NO turning back now.

Welcome to the not-so-sane club!

Thanks for all the replies guys...Heading back to ohio for the weekend and should be able to play around a bit in the snow if the forecasters are telling the truth! The shepherd makes a thorough pain of herself, anytime i get out i come back to the front seat full of fur. I am thinking about getting one of those nets, or doing the LOBO mod.

King is about an hour northwest of Greensboro...up near Mt. Airy. Anyone in Virginia willing to show a stock X around the trails in George Washington N.F.?

Another stomping ground of ours was up around Woolwine VA. Passed thru Mt Airy on the way. 34 yrs ago...no way I can remember where we used to go. Not too sure we even knew where we were at the time. Always an adventure. Further!

Actually he is thinking I'm glad my owner didn't waste money on Step Rails and Mud Flaps so He can afford new Shrock toys!

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to the Board! Another Fellow North Carolinian.
come visit the local boys @ www.encxc.org or our brothers to the north @ www.vaxc.org. We wheel together often, and have a trip planned for March 17th in VA, and have been to GWNF a few times a well.

In NC there is Uwharrie Nat Forest (URE for short). Its the biggest legal place in NC, and its near troy NC, Smack dead center of the state. And there is at least one run a month to ure by a few people in the club. However, its only open from April 1 through Dec 15th. Where all getting real antsy to wheel. There are a few other places in and around NC to go as well as well, but they are alot smaller. see below for the list We got from nc4x4.com

The list of legal wheeling locations:
North Carolina
Brown Mountain, NC
http://www.4x4trails.net/db_view_trail.php?trailNum=443
Carolina Beach,
Devils Playground (DPG), - Invite only, frequent public/open invites.
Fort Fisher, Licensed four-wheel drive vehicles may travel on the beach in designated areas for access to excellent surf fishing. Gate will close at 7:00 pm on the following dates: May 29-31, June 27-29, July 27-29 and August 25-27. (These are periods around a full moon, which is prime for sea turtle nesting.) Contact the park office for assistance in gaining access to the beach.
Climate - Winter daytime temperatures range from 40 to 44 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to 7 Celsius). Summer daytime temperatures range from 78 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 to 27 Celsius). The state has a fairly wet climate with an average precipitation for this area averaging 48-52 inches (122-132 centimeters).
Location - Fort Fisher State Recreation Area is located in New Hanover County, five miles south of Carolina Beach off US 421. It may also be reached from Brunswick County via the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry, which crosses the Cape Fear River.
Outer Banks, NC
http://www.outer-banks.nc.us/newsinfo/randr.htm#bchdrv
Tellico, Tellico Nation Forest Outside of Murphy NC
Directions - Go west on I-40. Just the other side of Canton, NC you will see Exit 27 for 19/23. Be alert! It is a wide two lane exit, but not an exit ramp, while an unmistakable exit it is easy to miss if not paying attention or heavy traffic. There are no exits for some time and it will cost you a one hour round trip if you miss this turn off. You stay on this the whole way to Murphy. When you get to the end of the 4 lane, the right lane turns right towards Robinsville. Stay in left lane. This will take you thru the Nantahala Nation Forest. You must go like 20 mph thru the areas that the stores, shops, and rafting places are. It's a long winding road with varying speed limits. Lot's of ups and downs. Once thru there you are close to Murphy. When you get into Murphy, you will see a Wal-mart on the left. Has a gas house and usually the cheapest place to re-fuel. When you leave Wal-Mart, you will go to the second stoplight(not counting the one at Wal-mart. Or the third counting the one at Wal-Mart. Turn right. This will take you thru town. Stay straight all the way thru town until you come to a flashing yellow light. Turn right there onto Hanging Dog Road. Stay Straight on Hanging Dog road till you see Davis Creek rd on the right. That's the way into the trail system. It actually turns into trail 1.
If you go past Davis Creek road you will go up a long winding road up, and when you start down again you will find Crawford's on the right. Look for the White Jeep on a pole (it's the sign for the place)
Uwharrie National Forest (UwharrRiE or UNF),
Directions -
I40/I85 to 210 (Future I73) West on Rt49, South on SR109

Beyond North Carolina
Black Mountain Recreational Park, Evarts, Harlan, County, KY
http://www.harlancountytrails.com/index.php
Directions - Directions to Harlan, Ky
From Hickory:
I-40 to I-26 north (Asheville)
I-26 turns into I-181
I-0181 to hwy 23 at Kingsport
Hwy 23 to Hwy 421 north
Hwy 421 to Harlan, ky
Right onto hwy 38 to Evarts, Ky
Notes From Larry - This way is 45 miles shorter than the route through Tazwell, Tn, but there are a lot more long grades to pull. It is also more senic and less traffic. If Black Mtn on I-40 slows you slows you down and works your vehicle more than you want, take: I-40/I-81N/hwy 25E N/ Hwy 119N to Harlan route.
CALLALANTEE OFF ROAD PARK, Mountain City TN.
Callalantee Web Site
Latest Map Created by Alan Abbott and Galen Koch
Directions- Mountain City / Callalantee
321 or 421 into Boone If you drive up 321 from Lenoir, you drive thru Boone past ASU till you come to the intersection of 321/421 turn left. If you come 421 you just stay straight.
Once on 421 you stay on it until you reach Mountain City (24 miles from Boone)
When you come into Mountain City, look for a Hardee's on the left. Big large Parking lot that is good for leaving your trailer and tow rig if you are there for a day ride.
The next stop light past the one for Hardee's turn right, TN481/US91/Church St. Go 2.5 miles, cross a small bridge with a sign, Furnace Creek, and turn right on Furnace Creek Rd. You will see a sign there on the right for Callalantee ATV Park. Go slow thru there as it is a residential neighborhood and narrow roads. You will see the campground .5 miles on the right.
Parking -
1) Big large Parking lot that is good for leaving your trailer and tow rig if you are there for a day ride.
2) The is more than ample parking at the campground for tow rigs/trailers.
