Camping/Lodging:
For our anniversary, we are returning to the camp used at the first run, Deep Water Horse Camp. It is at the end of FR 576 (see map). Be advised there are no facilities at this camp, so plan accordingly.

Trails:
Uwharrie has trails of varying difficulty, easy to modified. Most trails have hard lines and bypasses for those who are up for the challenge. Runs and a trail schedule will be decided upon Friday evening. We will break down into groups to avoid trail congestion.*

*Keep in mind that you will be taking your vehicle over rough terrain and will be taking the chance of damage including body damage, rocker panel dents, tree limb scratches, under body damage, etc.

Weather:
The weather in NC can be unpredictable. Always be prepared for the worse. Due to the time of year this even is scheduled it is possible that it will get cold at night or even during the day so bring adequate clothing and sleeping gear. We advise checking the weather before you leave in the chance that extra preparation is needed for rain or freezing conditions. We are die-hard wheelers and won't call off the event unless there are extremely bad weather conditions called for.

CB and FRS:
CB is the preferred method of on trail communication. FRS can be used but has a very limited range compared to CB. Channel will be determined on site to ensure we can pick a quiet one.

Directions:

ElDorado Outpost
4021 NC 109
Troy, NC 27371
