RITS 2017

A little early I know but the 4 attending members of last years run collectively decided its time to change the dates. Its entirely too hot in the middle of summer to wheel fullsize Broncos with V8's. Its tough to keep not only the truck but also personal temperatures to a moderate and bearable level. So we proposed to do a run in the fall (FRITS). I think another option is to plan a trip in late winter/early spring.

This post is to gauge some interest more or less in a wheeling trip in late March or early April. We can also plan another for a fall trip but I think the James Duff Ford Fall Crawl is the perfect time of year and collection of vehicles (all Broncos!!!).

So what say ye???? Alabama members.....you're vote only counts 1/2!!! LOL...We chose a park in AL last year because the majority of the interest came from AL members with only 1 member in attendance.

As you know. I agree totally. Last summer was brutal on both trucks and people. Having to run the A/C to keep the kids cool didn't help my truck at all. So the conversation of doing one earlier in the year was started. The thought being maybe more people could come or maybe that's a better time of year for others as the end of summer is typically vacation time or school.

So I think it's a great idea. I mean the worst that happens is we get together twice a year to wheel together.

I am interested in trying to get together late winter early spring and the James Duff get together would be a really cool one.

I like the latter the part of March I think. Still should be cool but the sun will be out. Hopefully about like the weather now. With this much notice, everyone who's interested should have enough time to put it on their calendar and plan accordingly.

Lets hear some dates and places. Thinking out loud here...personally, I love Windrock in Tennessee due to its shear size. There is also Adventure Offroad Park in Tennessee thats closer. I have not been to Morris Mountain in Alabama. Durhamtown in Georgia is a central location as a few new members have expressed interest in making these events. But Durhamtown is small and expensive for what it is and nothing is overly challenging aside from a trail or 2 that I can remember (may be a positive or negative depending..). There is also Gulches in South Carolina. I know we've been to all these parks before for RITS but we're bound to repeat based on our options.

Durhamtown looks good from a location standpoint, but if it's lacking in terrain I'd say it's not worth it..would rather travel farther for more challenging trails..

Out of those listed here are my thoughts

Windrock. I have never been there but would love to go. Everything i have heard makes it sound like it has something for everyone.

Adventure offroad park. Ditto to Windrock.

Morris Mountain. It's been almost 8 years since I have been there. The park has changed a lot. I do know that when it rains it becomes a cluster to get around. (like most other parks i guess) But some obstacles become impassable. Its mostly harder trails (Some damage likely). if I can remember correctly but can check with a friend who was just there this past weekend.

Gray Rock. Loved that place. Unfortunately it's not open to the public anymore. It had something for everyone and where I got into serious trail riding. Was a fun place to go. It's all mining land and they are mining it like crazy right now so most all trails aren't there anymore.

Durhamtown. Never been would like to go but have heard mixed reviews.

Gulches. Never been but at some point would like to go.

Thats about all i have for now.

That sucks about Gray Rock. I had no idea. I'll edit my post. Durhamtown has a small trail system. They also have some mud for those guys just looking to hit the gas. I may be going there for a small weekend after xmas and can assess it better. It does have a cafeteria and lots of cabins which are cheap. But its $35/day to ride. Far cry from Stoney Lonesome's prices.

It would offer some trails to most guys with TTB lifts unlocked. They do also offer MX, ATV & SxS just in case you wanted to bring another toy.

Like I said, not my initial selection but if it was more convenient because of location and trail difficulty, I'm down. I've just about resounded myself to wheeling strictly with Jeeps. Sad to say but they're just more active.

For a reminder of the park, RITS 2012 was there. Pics found here....RITS trip pics

Windrock can't be described or depicted in pics and vids. Its the Moab of the east. That said I have terrible luck getting a bronco to any event so my opinion is worthless, but I'll be there in something.

Well after looking at those pics and always hearing great things about it. I say we try Windrock again and maybe some of the Northeast guys would be willing to come down to it.

As far as time goes I think late March first of weekend in April would be awesome.

Windrock FTW!!!! Yes, it has some easy trails. The harder ones exit back to main trails or atleast ones that can be reached by stockers. 6hrs is so worth the drive. Its 5 for me.

March is good for me as well as its still cool up this way be a good time to enjoy some warmer weather.
I drive 6 hours for some sand dune action so sounds like this will be fun too. I also have a Banshee that I may bring along if anyone else has those kind of toys.

I say windrock is the best bet, but like Mike I'm a bit partial. There's just nothing quite like backing down a cliff in an ice storm.

I see they have rentals that are not horrible in price for a day either. Windrock is looking good to me, but I will not vote, more or less I maybe able to go if its in Tennessee. I don't want that to matter to the group though.
Do you guys camp or get cabins or?? Their cabins allow Dogs so that is another plus to us in making it

Camp in campers but sometimes get cabins. For this trip I'm sure, Micheal will camp in his camper. I will most likely camp in my camper.

Oh hell no, get the cabin. Their cabins are the tits. Even complete with windrock cutout fire barrels. We each need to bring some wood and I just cut a good bit of cedar. CBG lemme tell you this: at this point we just hope to see more than 3.5 (I'm the .5) people at these things and maybe you can coax huggy to caravan. You're vote or even slight remote interest would tell me, "yay windrock!" Lol. Its a good time and I'm glad I have a spare driveshaft. And winch.

Are they strict on the camp ground rules there? Example say we get cabin and everyone else is in campground. Do they care if we come over to campground for Shenanigans at night?? The cabin is cheapest for us as I can take 1 tow rig then and we would be renting a camper anyways, which is more then they get for cabins, so for me cabin it is, LOL. Everyone could come to cabin too, I maybe able to talk the other half into cooking up some food for us all (She likes to cook)
I will bug Ed about coming, I know he has been wanting to do bronco stuff again, but he is also busy re-building a house for his daughter right now too. He may have it done before march though.

Nah they are totally cool about hanging out. We generally have people staying in both areas, and the campsites and cabins are pretty much right next to each other. The campers are a lot over but even thats only like a hundred yards. We usually end up bullsh!tting with other folks there talking trucks, side by sides, etc. They are also cool about leaving keys for you if you get there after the office closes, and just ask that you check in the next morning. Also, buy the trail map. Its expensive, and 3' 3' double sided topo map, but its worth it. 72,000 wooded acres can be a nightmare to navigate.
