MAP AND DIRECTIONS:

Google Maps Directions to the Eldorado Outpost - Located just outside of the trails.

To get to the Arrowhead Campground from the Outpost, turn left out of the parking lot. Look for the sign for the horse camp and turn left on SR1154. Make a right at the "T" intersection onto SR544. Go past the horse camp to the stop sign at the next T intersection. You will see a sign saying Arrowhead Campground is to the left. Make the left onto the dirt road SR597. Make a right at the sign marking the turn to the camp ground on SR597B. The road is paved just before you pass a dump station. When you get into Arrowhead, keep your speed down and watch out for the speed bumps. The road will fork. You have to go to the right because the road becomes one way. The camp sites are well marked by numbers and with the last name of the person making the reservation.

Trail Map:

THINGS TO BRING:

You must have a trail pass. An annual pass is $30. A day pass is $5 per day. Trail passes can be purchased at the Outpost.

It often rains at least one day during the event. So rain gear and tarps are recommended. Fire wood is always appreciated.

It is a good idea to bring a tool kit and some trail spares, as I can tell you from experience that sh_t happens on the trails. We tend to help one another out so if everybody brings something, we usually have everything covered and there is an auto parts store in Troy.
_____________________________________________________

FOOD AND SUPPLIES:

This tends to be a very informal event. People come and go as they please; some preferring to hang out at camp or go fishing instead of trail riding. With the Flintlock Range now open, some will also go shooting (passes are $3 per day and are available at the Outpost). So bring enough food and drink to last the entire event. Food, drink and ice are available at the Outpost or in Troy. The Outpost also has a good breakfast for around $5. Usually there is a group dinner on Friday. If the weather is bad on Sat, we sometimes go into town and have dinner at Zeno's.

As always, this will be a completely un-sponsored and unofficial event ... No clubs or organizations will be overseeing the activities. This is simply going to be a bunch of friends and online acquaintances getting together for a weekend of fun, good food, and lots of off-road amusement.

ALL attendees will be utterly and solely responsible for themselves and the guests within their individual group(s) (including all vehicles and equipment), and shall be expected to abide by the laws, rules, and policies set-down by our true hosts, the United States Forestry Service and the people of the great state of North Carolina.

Woohoo! I know it's been a few years since I've been, but I think I can make this! Do I bring the Trooper or the Samurai? Or do I try and bring both?

Speak of the Devil. :lol: Someone just posted a few days back on one of my vids ( 2012 ) about how clean the install was on your winch and I wondered what had happened to you. :roll: :lol: Hope you can make it.

Site #30 booked 24-28 April.... finally, I'll be home for an anniversary. :lol:

Site 28 booked.

Hoping I get the title to this 97 soon so I can fix the trans and bring that with me it with me.

FYI, if you have not been on the recreation.gov site in a while it has been redesigned. It works much better but it also will require you to reset your password before you can login to your account.

Also there is not many spots left in the upper loop. The place is filling up fast.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Good point - I may have room, depending on who decides to come and if I bring the kiddos. I will update closer to go-time when I know for sure who all is coming.

Doubt I'll have the trans fixed in the 97 rebuilt by then as I'm running out of weekends fast with other vacations planned prior to the trip. Means I'll be bringing the 91 which probably won't see too much trail time due to a few repairs I really need to tackle on it after the 97 is running. Still looking forward to a good weekend.

I might be there though I'll probably be loud. If I can get tires before then I'll be there. I'll try to fix the exhaust before then aswell.

I will try to make it out one day and be a passenger with you guys.
My truck still has a twisted tube in the front axle and I have a bunch of other stuff piling up that has prevented me from getting the high pinion work done.
Good to see Tom will head back out and we get to catch up with some friendly faces.
:bigsmurf:
let's raise a bottle up so we can toast to our friend Joe who we owe a good amount of motivation and ZuZu debt too.
