Ugghhh...I hate that you guys always go on Saturdays. I work Saturdays but off Sundays. i just went to Wharton for the first time this past Sunday. I had NO idea where to go or how I was going to get out of anything should I get stuck. Fortunately there was only one area I could have gotten stuck and there was already a pick up there backing up. It was a deep puddle/stream with 2 steel drainage pipes across the trail. I was able to hop over them with little effort but only after the pick up assured me he would pull me out if I failed. I made it...he tried and got hung up. He had to go back but needed help. I tried to pull him forward but no dice....he got puck back from behind from the next pick up that came along.

Anyway....can anyone show me a map or an entry area? i was trying to find that open "play area" i saw on youtube videos.

By the way Jeff with the YJ in the video lives in Sewell.
I am camping out there from 6-9. I would be glad to show you around on the 9th. If I'm still running. I grew up in Sewell. Are you in the town or washington township? Come out to the Batona campsite on Carranza road anytime between the 6 th and the 9th. Let me know if you need directions. The campsite si very close to the spot below and these vehilcles will be there.

Be very careful with these pipes. We've had 3 rigs (including mine) wave goodbye to their lower control arm mounts because of them.

Pick a Sunday you can definetly get out there.
Start a new thread for an easy ride.
I'm sure some other locals would like to try a ride were no one breaks the bank Meet at my local WAWA and I'll be in.

As for that Batona camping..I'm loading up the firewood and the camcorder.

Damn Wharton pipes... We hit the double pipe this weekend as well. I think it's on Devious Mnt. Road if I remember correctly. We actually towed/winched a clutchless JK over it around 1:00 AM Saturday morning..

\/ this is from a run back in February..on a different trail.

WOW...the pipes i was talking about are nowhere NEAR that big. The double pipes i saw were only about 1/4 the size of that monster.

i might go. Question is do you think i could have any fun out there. I don't mind going in a little mud but i definately don't want to be a submarine. My jeep is my daily driver and it's in great shape 70,000 original miles, and would like to keep it in good shap. 93 ZJ with 2" BB with 235/75/15 tires. So basically stock and i only have a hitch for rear recovery. No front hooks and no junkyard around me have any that i can get cheaply.

No front hooks is a no go, sorry.

I'd suggest hitting up quadratec.... a set of front hooks will run you in the area of $50-60 bucks.

There is plenty of fun to be had at wharton. We had a stock XJ with us last time I was down... he did fine, didnt flood his jeep out, get stuck, or get any trail rash (that I know of).

Be mindful the branches and be ready for a good washing and waxing the next day and you'll be good to go.

But as I said before...no hooks isa no go.

i have to agree with Medic22, no front hooks is a no go. my buddy and i went out recently and he got stuck, he has tow hooks on but without brackets and i didnt feel comfortable pulling him out. definately get them and we`ll be glad to have you out.

and Medic, my stock XJ had no issues at all and no trail rash when we went out. being at the butt end of the line and seeing how everyone went through taught me what path was the best way. i think as long as it doesnt rain heavily through the week, any stock vechile would do fine, even a newbie like me
