So I always say, start with very low expectations. That way, you can only go up, right. I've sent an informal invitation to the INEOS Grenadier Prototype Tour Team to come to URE in November (If not then, perhaps sometime then?) Anyway, this is just a heads up that with the announcement of INEOS establishing a presence here in N.C. (which means - jobs), that UNF might become a central proving ground for them. SO, if INEOS creates an account here and begins asking questions about November, it won't be a surprise. :cool: Driving the Grenadier

I have been following them for a while and it would be awesome to be part of that. Thanks Don

This is fir anyone heading to the Nov Isuzu trip to Uwharrie- I live in Southport NC, so I’ll be road marching my 89 Trooper to Uwharrie early Friday morning. If anyone else is from my area, and wants to “convoy” over, hit me up! The more the merrier!

I'll be in Leland that day and when I get off work around 12 I'm heading out... although I normally dont get past 65 so I'd be a bad person to convoy with...

I drive an Isuzu! You think I get past 65? Lol
If you don’t mind I’ll message you closer to the date, and maybe follow you over.

Ok to help Mike out here is the latest list for the camp sites. Looks like we are gonna be booked up and have a good turn out for the run. Just know if you arent on the list and decide to show up there prob isnt gonna be room at group camp and will have to find a spot on the trail or at Arrowhead if there is still open sites. All are welcome to come the the group dinner. See below for details on that.

Thanks Blaine. You are correct, I don't like being confrontational about money as I don't know everyone, and I don't like being "that guy". That being said, there have been a few years I have had to eat a significant portion of the cost due to people showing up and not pitching in. Just to be clear, I am not profiting from organizing this. Last year between the cost of the group site and the food for the group dinner I was out of pocket close to $600. This year will be more than that due to the increased cost of food. I do this because I love to get everyone together. I have made many amazing friends through this forum from all over the country that I would have otherwise never met. I also love cooking and entertaining, so hosting the group dinner Saturday night while a lot of work, is also a lot of fun for me. I am gearing up for another great trip this year. Hopefully the weather cooperates and the trails don't cause too much havoc. From the reports I have been hearing they have gotten more challenging due to all the rain and increased use this year. Should make for a lot of fun.

Just over three weeks to go!! Let's go outside and play with our toys!! :LOL:

Also, just a reminder. Bring a cup from home for whatever beverage you plan to drink. NO OPEN CONTAINERS!! Red solo cups also draw a lot of attention too. I personally have a 24oz knock-off Yeti cup that I bring camping. I can enjoy my cold snacks without drawing any unwanted attention. Last year there were multiple people who failed to follow this rule and it made me very uncomfortable as I am the one who would get a ticket if LEO shows up. Thankfully we didn't have any problems, but I just want to put that out there. If you see someone who doesn't know or "isn't worried" about it. Please politely educate them. I'm still a little bitter about paying the last ticket. Hence the reason I will not be camping at Arrowhead any time soon.

Thanks,

Boy, can I sympathize. One time we went camping with a group of friends - nice people! - and the first night in the campground, they hauled out their guitars and electric amps! We’re not talking folk music on acoustic, here. Full on hair band stuff. Which (age reveal) I normally like. But in a state park with the next site 10 feet away???

We anonymously ratted them out. 20 years later, and I still don’t think they know. LOL

Awesome. I think we will have room. If you have questions on where to go or where we will be please let us know. Also please stop at the gas station outside the park called "the outpost" that's where you get trail passes for the trails and any supplies you need. Food isn't bad either.

@MrDunge - Don't lie to them! They food is pretty good! Slightly better than MREs and much better than most 'gas station' food.
