The 1st annual WHEELIN" for HOPE is set to be a success because of participants and sponsors like each of you!

Wheeling to fight cancer is a great way to show what great hearts four wheel drive enthusiasts have. We also don't mind having a little fun in the process.

Thank you for your support and encouragement in this event.

We are already thinking about the 2nd annual Wheelin' for Hope event at Oak Ridge (maybe in the spring).

See you guys at the ride. In the meantime be safe!

yall have a great time! If you see a Buick lucerne (or similar ) with an Avis sticker on the back going through the corn fields heading for quarry ridge on Sunday wave, we might get back early! Hope to see everyone in the fall for the annual.

Hot hot hot

It was hot at Oak Ridge this past weekend, but everyone seemed to have had a good time.

The ride, raffle and dinner was a success. Not too many brakages on the trails. No heat stroke!

Generous participants and sponsors made the weekend great for Relay for Life as well. We are still tallying up, but preliminary numbers look real good!

Thanks again. If we do it next year (in the spring when its cooler) I,m gonna call on you again!

Thank you to everyone who participated in any way. We could not have done it without you.

We just got home from Hotlanta and i'm glad to hear things went well. As we were setting up tents outside for sister-in-laws 40th b-day in the 104 degree heat i was allmost wishing for the cool 95 degree climate of Va... Thanks to all that went and all the sponsors!

Hopefully see some of you for the annual in September!

Tim, great event! We had an awesome time even with the high heat/humidity and abundant dust. We were in group 5 and the guides were top notch. This was our 1st wheeling event and I gotta say, we're hooked! (I say we, cuz I was already hooked and now she is too) You gotta love a women that says 15 minutes into the 1st trail ride "We gotta get you some bigger tires and a lift"...
Having the 2nd annual WFH event at a cooler time of year would be a welcome change though.

Any official pics from the event?
I saw a nice lady running around with a fancy camera in the mornings and at the dinner.....

PS.
We made it back across the 12ton, one lane RR bridge with our 14ton fithwheel rig. I knew VDOT must have a safety factor built into their max weight limit....

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Good times, good cause...what else could you want?

Sounds like you've got a keeper there! But be careful, she might want to borrow your ride sometime(if that happens you might not get it back).

No official pics, but lots of particpant pics are coming in. We may try to figure out how to post them in one location.

I told you if you hit the bridge fast enough, you would not hit but every third or fourth board anyway.

Thanks again for coming.

Same here....group 5 trail guide was awesome. He showed us lots of trails we hadnt seen before. And sorry for my axle breakage....but glad my group had the patience to give us a few to get it back going. Woulda have really been terrible to wait all this time for the event and be out so early on. Thanks for a great weekend and hope it all happens again for a such a great cause especially.
