Hey Mike,

We wheel with The Lost Jeepers, look for us, we'll have about 25 vehicles or so. I'll be in the yellow TJ though 'stead of my YJ.

To answer your other question from the event page, there's around 200 vehicles registered.

Look forward to meeting you.

Be well,
Richard

checking out the camping gear and the heaters stuff now.... time to start getting excited. My dad and I are going to set up camp around 4 ish so if you see a a black and blue 7 with a green chevy come on over and say hey! going to try to find a "quieter" spot to set up the tent... you know how well a 70 year old tolerates those damn teens and all their boom box music all night long....

Yall rock and yes Richard, some day there will be a run with lost jeepers! After all I'm still unafiliated...

We need to do something about that. Mark your calender now, Saturday, July 11th, Lost Jeepers July Bash, Evington, 6 miles South of Rt. 460 on Leesville Road. You'll get a flyer with your packet at the Wheel - In. Hopefully, I can get you to ride with us before then though .

Man, I probably have to work a half day.....

I don't mean any offense, as I have no idea how you wheel. Word of advice: Stay on the main trails, and definitely stay off the large rock garden 1/2 way through or anything else that's Posted for that matter .

Be well,
Richard

It's been a while since I've been through there. Looking more to take some photos than to try anything risky. I enjoy the non-paved rugged road.

Are you working the front half or rear half of the day?

Front half, then help out at the event in the afternoon, would of been cool to get a morning run in though, hoping to get there by 4 worst case.....

Game Wardens, there has been talk lately that the Forestry Department is considering making Shoe Creek into a Private Road, as the few that "can't seem to read" are ruining it for those of us that can, lol, and do follow rules. The road through is public now, but all the property on both sides is private, and the landowners are pushing for it.

Be well,
Richard

Well I hope it stays public - is there still the rest area a little ways in?(seems like it was parking for the falls or something)

Anyhow, we wheel like we have to drive home 500 miles when we're done, because we do.(strictly legal of course)

Well, I'm off the rest of today and all day tomorrow, so I'm going to head up in the morning to the event to help out all day.

We hope they leave it public too. Yes, there is a rest area/campsite on the right after the entrance and across the first stream crossing and there is a large rest area/campsite on the left, after the second (I think) stream crossing, just before you make the left to go up Slick Rock Loop.

Have fun!

Be well,
Richard

Im signed up and ready to wheel. Always have a good time there.

Sweet that we can have fires there this year.

Yes, you can have a fire as long as it is a firepot and off the ground.

Thanks
