uwharrie trip/Lost bike
Donít know if this is the right area to post this in or not, sorry in advanced if it isnít and thanks if it is moved to the correct place. I and a group of friends went to Uwharrie this weekend (Oct 19-21) to mountain bike (we were the 4 guys on bikes riding if anyone saw us), camp, and (even though it wasnít really planned) some minor wheeling. While biking on Dutch john we found a nice little area to camp for the night and decided to take our jeeps to it that night (Saturday). Everything was going fine on our minor wheeling trip until we arrived at the site and it was already taken. We decided that we would ride up a few more minutes to see if there was anywhere else to camp. Instead of staying on the easy part of the trail, my friend in his stock tj who was leading (dumb move since this was his first real off roading and he had never been to Uwharrie before) turned off to the big hill on Dutch john. With out even leaving his jeep to look at what was ahead, he just yelled out to me (stock zj) that it was all down hill from here and it shouldnít be too bad. to make a long story short, we made down the hill fine, decided that Dutch john being a difficult trail and us being tired and hungry that we would turn around, I made it up first with more or less no trouble (should of lead in the first place since I ride Uwharrie all the time on dirt bike/ once in my tj, just didnít realize that the big hill was ahead of us at the time of decent), he made it half way, staled( heís new to stick), I had to wheel his up ( not complaining), and had fun the rest of the way back. When we got back to Dutch john trail head he noticed that his bike fell off the rack somewhere on the trail. Looked for it last night a little, decided that the morning would be better, looked this morning and still nothing. I was just curious if anyone that was out there Saturday night around 10ish or this morning and came across a red and black Gary fisher Wahoo. If you could PM me if you know anything about it. Sorry for the long post (still new to the forum and have to work on my post sizes). All in all great trip to the forest and I should have what pictures I have of wheeling up soon. Thanks again.
