You still planning on doing some wheeling? I found a forest road map the other day that I forgot I had.

Looks like its happening for us. Just built 3" mandrel bent exhaust last week to replace the rotted exhaust and did timing belt on the turbo wagon last night. Thing was retarded one tooth on the cam, no wonder it felt so slow.

I'm up for wheeling if there's a group of people who want to off-road. Or riding along on a road loop.

Not on the agenda: trying to keep up with people on the road in a lifted 4Runner. Lol.

I was telling jared that I'm down for a drive but I'll be in the back. Stock 3.27 or whatever gearing makes for a slow trip lol. I know Derrick and I were talking about going up to right outside asheville to a little trail called hurricane creek. It's about an hour and a half north of the lodge. Jared was also saying there were a good amount of trails or forestry roads around too. I'm always down for splorin

I've got a winch, skids, sliders, on-board air. I'm used to dragging over 3 foot tall ledges.

The winch is mostly just a 'good luck charm' that helps talk you into doing things on trails you probably shouldn't be doing.

Hahahaha that's how it was with my Rubicon. With lockers, 35s, and a winch I felt like I could do anything. But I was always the first to get stuck

The more gear you have, the deeper in the woods you get stuck.

Kenny - bring me some honey, honey

I'm bringing some peppers from the garden... not a lot because the hurricane did a number on them.
I'll bring 2 coolers of beer and a large bottle of vodka from costco that i have laying around. Do we need to figure out an ice situation?

Ice is really the big question mark. In years past, we've just raided the ice machine in cullowhee. Unfortunately, that's not an option this year.

I have an abundance of coolers. The pork is thawing in one large one now. That should have no problem staying cold for a few days.

The rest of the stuff should mostly fit in the fridge.

We'll probably have to make some ice runs once the pork really starts to thaw though. I have a case of water bottles in the freezer now as makeshift icepacks, so that will help too without making meat juice soup in the coolers.

Okay, so last post before leaving the realm of cell service... Smoker is patched up, trailers are loaded, and we're headed up the hill.

The weather isn't the greatest, but we will overcome. Forecast looks better once Friday rolls around.

Y'all travel safe. I'll keep the beer cold.
