I think I've been rock wheeling 11 times in four years...on a 4/5 trails and never even so much have separated rubber from wheel...so what gives!
Whatever... LOL Uuuhh?

I've only done Corum once I think, but isn't it an intermediate trail? I seem to remember Pennsyltucky being a fun trail.

I thought it was funny. Guess you had to be there. We were wheeling and he tried to plow through a very large boulder and we listened to a really loud banging the whole way back. There is a video he posted about it on here somewhere. I think that the stories that come after are always part of the experience, one of the best parts, because you get to laugh about it!

Drove it home every time. The only "on trail" repairs were to remove the broken drive shafts. Winching out of Corum to one of the few bailout trails can take a long time and many pulls. Even the bailout trails can be challenging when you don't have 4wd.

It's all summarized from the lips of babes in my signature...

Well, driving your Range Rover into the fishing lake to wash mud off the tires will get you banned from the Cove.
So I guess we won't see the big RRC on 37"s with NY plates here again.

Assault?
Dude, assault is like an hourly happening during "BigDogs" events.
It's a natural occurrence when you combine 300 Jeeps and swill like Bud Lite.
Just don't assault the fish in the lake with your tires.

Thanks to Gustavo & Lucky8 for organizing this deal.

Actually Pennsyltucky is harder than Corum and ET is even worse. There is a trail to the left of Corum called Cobra that is easier than Corum. Although even that one was pretty hard last Feb with 2 feet of snow.

Damn. That's a great truck and a fantastic group of dudes from NYC. They show up to nearly every event along the East. I have a vid of him going through Rausch's frog hole a few years back.

Ok so it's standard fare for intoxicated and substance abusing rednecks that drive jeeps where you are from. Got it.

Now what about rover events with 100 trucks and an event organizer assaults a participant for no reason in the middle of the day? Standard behavior where you come from too?

I know you are a Chapman lover Jeff but it's time to stop coming to his defense everytime his misgivings are mentioned.

And it's funny how you don't have a peep to say about it in person when you hang around our campsite.

Most likely, from what I've heard. OK, maybe not hourly...

C'mon...my first Rover event was MAR '01...I can only recall one assault in all these years.

Lover? We've been friends for a long time but I have a lot of other friends in the Rover community.

I hung around everybody's campsite.
Did you want to talk about it? I thought it was water under the bridge.
Somebody else asked me about Chapman and I told what I knew about that situation---which wasnt much.
I wasn't even there.
He wasn't banned from the Cove, however.

I think that was Charles point.

Jeff, I know you love to stir the pot and I will admit that a lot of the time it does result in funny threads, but for the sake of the communitey and the event can we let this sleeping dog lie?
