Ha Ha neither, go have fun on the trails and then try to remember where you where and where you went when looking at Google maps, my method has not failed me yet.

HAHA well ok then.
I've been meanin to bring my laptop with me when I go to Stokes, cause I have GPS software on it. I have the power invereter too so that way my battery wont die. I gotta see if there's an app for my iPhone that does GPS tracking. I know that I have a maps app that will locate me, but it doesnt track me.

I got out to Stokes and did Brinks, Shay, Cross, and Woods today (solo). The trails were better than expected. There were lots of rocks and my main concern was cutting a tire...I wanted to get out to air down a tad but the bugs flying around were bigger than my hand. The WJ made it through stock without breaking a sweat. I think I hit the gas skid once or twice. No trail damage to report.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hey there, I read on earlier posts about Stokes that the trails are "easy". I'm new to Jeeps and 4WD and I am looking to take my Jeep out on "easy" trails with some people who are willing to help a newbie. I have an 06 Libby Renny, skids, rails, hooks, and I know we have some tow straps around here... just in case Are you guys open to a run with me on it?

BTW, those names "Shay", "Woods", etc -- are they Vehicle trail names?

It's time we met and made a mess...

Those rds are off Struble rd just above Tilmans Ravine. I ran them Sunday.
The Mudslingers are having a trail ride this coming Sunday 7/26. The plan is to meet at the upper parking lot of Tilmans Ravine at 11am Sunday morning. We'll run the roads above and then back thru a road I don't know the name of back down to Brook rd. We plan on having a 2nd meeting point at Buttermilk Falls at 1:30ish for lunch and a regroup then maybe hit 2 big mudholes down by the Flatbrook. Anyone that wants to join in you're more then welcome. The trails can be run in 2wd mostly as long as you have decent tires. Any stock Jeep can make it. There are alot of puddles so if you go topless and fast you will get wet! It's pretty much a family ride thru the woods on legal trails. Pack a lunch and see ya there!
Stop by our site ( forum) for updates! Mudslingers trail ride

my stock tires are at maybe 40% best. What's anyone's opinion on that?
If we get rain will I make it, will I get through any deep puddles at stock height?

It's time we met and made a mess...

It's pretty mild stuff. You'll be fine. The roads are all on a Hagstom map and are actually shown as "improved ". They are really just little used dirt roads that have some washed out spots and some big puddles. ( but we do have tow straps )

Well I'm glad I started this thread, it has really taken off lately I see. I don't know when I'll be out wheelin cause my tires are SHOT...I'm down to the wear strips on 2 and almost racing slicks on the other 2. I still wheel it, but the last time I went I punctured a tire. I might be able to figure somethin out tho. I have 3 good 31's and a few bald ones so I can prolly throw the 3 good ones on and one bald one ans be ok...but havin $$$ for gas is a whole other story. LOL

Bring anything road legal. I'll pull you out if you get stuck! There maybe an empty seat in someones Jeep. The roads we're running could probably be done in a Ford escort with the right person behind the wheel. I do carry a tire plug kit and compressor.
