Date isn't too important to me, but later in April is preferred, we will be in FL the first week of April.

Anyone put any thought into what weekend in April would be best for the VA FSJ Meet and Greet? Throw out some dates folks, we need to set this in stone so everyone can plan accordingly. Just give it some thought...

its still a little too far out for me to plan. My wife works every other weekend and we have a one year old so it takes some planning. I hope that we get something together & that its on a weekend I can come! Its cool that 16 people voted in the poll if we could get 10+ of them together it would make for a cool parking lot scene! By the way Shaggy, saw your rig parked in the upper lot at the college. Lookin good! Like that grill. I just sold off my rhino, sigh, just decided I wanted to find one of the black pignose from a J truck or a cheesegrater for my finished look.

My input for date would be the last weekend in April or in early May. I will be in Florida the first weekend, and will headed to Uwharrie probably in the second week when the trails open. But if it doesn't work for everyone else, no big deal. I'll try to make it if I can.

The last weekend in April seems to be a favorable date, Lets Make the plans for April 28 2012. Im excited to have it narrowed down to specific day but we still need to decide about location. Im like the idea of a trail ride/wheeling Meet and Greet at shoe creek but I want to know what you guys are looking for. Do you want to have a parking lot M&G or take 10 FSJs for a trail ride in the National forest?? Lets hear what yall have to say......

I agree, if we can get some positive feedback about a wheeling/camping trip at shoe creek, I say we go for it. But i want the majority to be pleased and a good turnout.

The option to camp would be nice for people traveling from various parts of VA and would open the event to saturday and sunday allowing the campers to wheel both days and people who couldnt come on sat. would be able to make it on sun.The folks that dont camp can just link up with us on the trail for the day and head home when they are done. again feedback is key...... lets hear it

I could make the sunday of that weekend. Working night shift and rotating schedules every quarter, I believe I will have off sun, mon, tues for that time frame... so y'all could wheel saturday, and have a grill'n greet on sunday, wherever it is. The wife and baby wouldn't do too well camping just yet anyway. The baby won't even be a year old by then.

I'd be a "tentative yes" to this.

Hey Shaggy, can you still run shoe creek from the top side down from crabtree falls? If so, there is plenty of camping there. Even have cabins for rent. I dont see any stock rigs making that trip though, but its been a long time since Ive been through it. I just want to see some other FSJs!

You can run top to bottom or bottom to top, both ways are fun. I agree stock Wagoneers would have axle/rocker/bumper clearance issues with rocks. 31s and 4" or lift is about the minimum you need to get through the trail without any scraping or grinding on rocks. Its a really fun trail and anyone looking to get your feet wet in 4x4, this would be the perfect place to go on a challenging trail ride (challenging for me). Crabtree falls has camping, there is camping on the trail, im not sure about cabins but since we are planning ahead, anyone interested in a cabin could call ahead and rent one if they didnt feel up for camping. I dont know about yall but Shoe Creek/ Crabtree Falls is sounding better and better

This sounds like a fun trip, but I can't commit just yet..... I'm still on deployment and need to bounce this off my wife and make sure she doesn't have other plans. I think I can convince her to let me take the boys for the weekend. The time frame sounds good to me and if I can make it I'll be in for camping as well.
Haven't had my jeep on any trails to speak of.... just a little mud and beach driving. Should be interesting
I'll post up again once I get back and discuss with the family.
,Chris

Is there camping close by with RV spots? Hook-ups would be nice, but not necessary. If no RV parking, I can bring the tent also. Either way, wheeling would be great.

i know this threads dead... but i missed the meet and greet. does anyone want to meet up for a day run on Sat May 26th at Shoe Creek? I may not bring the wagoneer but i will be out on the trail for an exploratory trip (FJ Cruiser). oh and i was at shoe creek coming from the top down last week. it was much eroded and there were some spots that gave me pause even coming down hill. just a heads up.

everyone bailed on the M&G once i moved it to events and attempted to organize everything. One member showed interest and he was from NC. Its a shame all these people say " yeah Ill be there" but when it comes down to it no one gets off the couch. I learned my lesson about trying to plan anything on this site in the VA area


Good to know shoe creek is getting washed out. Maybe it will be challenging now!

For anyone interested....
I ended up making the trip from Currituck, NC. Stayed at the crabtree campground. When I checked in the owner came out and was all over my jeep. He was a huge fan of FSJ's and proceeded to tell me all about the shoecreek trails and many other spin offs in the national forest. He had hosted some factory Jeep weekends in the past..... was very familiar with Jeep history.
I was by myself and had two of my kids with me so I didn't venture off the shoe creek trail but definetly had a blast, although I didn't see any other FSJ's.
All in all a great weekend, Jeep ran well, kids had fun. I'm up for another trip up there. Just let me know when. ,Chris

Does anyone want to get together for a trail ride Sat. 6/23? I was thinking shoe creek, but would be up for any other decent rides, like GWNF to Flagpole run.
