Charlotte, NC Rock Crawling Meet & Greet!! Saturday- Jan 2nd.

I'm organizing a Jeep Meet & Greet with a cookout and rock crawling for Saturday, January 2nd! Nothing goes together better than burgers and rocks, right?

There is a private rock course in Iron Station (about 20 miles north of downtown Charlotte) and we are going to host a cookout and crawl on January 2nd. This is a Saturday and the event will run from 12:00pm until people want to go home.

You will be able to see the whole trail (It's a loop) from the picnic tables, so we can sit back and watch rigs try to navigate the rocks all afternoon. The trail is not very long, but provides more than enough challenges to test your rig on.

What to bring? Maybe some drinks (soda, or juice, or whatever- no alcohol), a dessert item?, or chicken wings?. I don't know. I'll bring hamburgers to throw on the grill.

My buddy and I ran the trail yesterday. I'm locked front and rear on 37"s and he made it half way open/open on 33"s. So there are extreme lines, but also fun lines that will provide a challenge for just about any setup. The owner of the land is Scott Schwabe and he does phenomenal jeep work (gears/lockers/SYE's/engine swaps/suspension/etc). No cost involved to run the trail and eat some burgers. Just a great afternoon of local wheeling!

The trail and cookout is located off of HWY16 and HWY73 near Denver.

Post up if you are going to come so we can get a head count!

Here are some pics from yesterday:

My friends (he'll be at the M&G as well)-

Same here. A specific location will probably be the deciding factor between my friends and myself because were high school students and our funds are limited

I helped haul some rock there one day about 4-5 years ago, didn't know that was still there. We got it from Dalamtion lane? I had a F350 dump flatbed and Scarface (Shane) had the bobcat, is he still hanging out there?

Does Scott still have the nice jeep pickup?

Yep, he's still there! His MJ got wrecked, but he is still building on it. He actually broke the front axle on the trail not too long ago.

Even if just 7 to 10 rigs show, it should be a ton of fun!

Sounds like a good time. My xj is out of service at the moment but I might see if anyone wants to go and just ride with them.

I will definitely try to make it. I am going back up to NJ for the holidays, so it depends on when we come home. Hope to see you all though!

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Quoted Jetscuh: "I really have to force myself to eat nuts. There are other forms of protein as well, but it can be hard making sure you get enough at times."
