    Wheeling in the rain

    Here's some pics of me and some guys from another forum doing a little wheeling at Uwharrie in the rain on Sunday!

    This is some guys that went on Monday. They are on the trail named Daniel, it is rated extremely difficult! Me and the other guys accidentally took a wrong turn on one of the trails and had to drive down what these guys are coming up! We got a couple of thumbs up for coming down that trail in stock to semi stock jeeps! Had a lot of fun with no damage or carnage!

    Now that is a good lookin' group of jeep guys right there! Yep I've been wheeling in misting rain and fog at Spring Creek Offroad Park here in TX. Its fun to get muddy and most of the trails rating difficulties go way up from their dry weather ratings. Looks like ya'll had a blast.

    Wanna go back in dry weather! Can't wait till they re-open in April! Any time you go over a rock ledge like that noise first in a stock jeep and didn't roll, then it's a great day!!

    I actually like wheeling in the rain, make stuff harder.
    It used to be a jeep Thing,
    But all that stuff broke

    Yes that's Uwharrie! Monday was the last day until April. Maybe next year you can come down and join us!

    In the rain the easy trails turn to moderate, and moderate trails turn extremely difficult!

    I'll definitely make it there this year. I went a little over a year ago and had a blast. I didn't try going up Daniel, but I did make it down.

    I think I'm still washing the Uwharrie mud off.

    My friends and I vowed never to do Daniel again unless we have about 4.5 inches of lift with 34's! Really start second guessing your decision to continue the trail when you start seeing a lot of broken glass and parts in the trail! About one more trip on Daniel, and I'll have my factory skid plate turned into a tummy tuck skid plate!

    Re: Wheeling in the rain

    I'd have to think it's much easier when it's dry. I just went down it and decided that was enough for me. The guys I was with ran up and down a couple of times. My 31s with 2" of lift just weren't ready for it.

    FYI - my wife opted to not ride with me down. She decided to walk it...

    Looks like a good time! Seems like rain is the only thing we get to wheel in up here!
