well yea......only one I saw that walked up the hill and logs was that bad**** chevy that guy had. Thats the only one I didnt see that had to use the powerwagon's winch.
You must have showed up after I ran it. I did it about an hour before that Chevy.
He didn't do the steep climb at the end of the trail.. after coming thru another mud pit. That one had a nice off-camber climb with a steep dropoff to your left. I got a little "out of shape" on that climb and had to stay in the throttle hard to keep from sliding down the embankment.

Support your local MS foundation. You don't know how much this disease sucks until it affects someone you love.
If you haven’t sent your registration in, there is only 10 registration days left until the registration box closes for the year. Plus there are only 110 spots left. Get them in quick and don’t be left out.
For those that have sent them in….. a confirmation e-mail will be out on the 2nd of September with all the information you need.
To answer that burning question….primitive camping only, at this time. I will let you know more if and when I hear it.
The Raffle: As of right now there are three sets of tires (one of which is rumored to be Pitbulls), four winches, plus many other great prizes. This doesn't include the donated stuff from other member groups.
There will still be tent camping at the main site. This gives the folks that have pop ups, campers, etc., an alternate option to Lake Nelson Campground, and it's right around the corner from Oak Ridge. Greggs site is basically a large field that will be bushhogged with portajohns, there are NO hookups. More information regarding camping is supposed to be sent out with the confirmations.

From Gregg Jackson:
Because of the changes at Oak Ridge, I have talked to the owner of a nearby place and I will be opening a campsite off site for the Annual. The access is limited by the railroad tracks. It is a pretty tall hump to get over the tracks. So long low clearance vehicles might have a problem.
I can get my unsprung 19' trailer loaded over no problems. But a long camper might have issues.
If you would like to reserve a camp site you must do so before the event.
