Land Rover Carolinas Wheels Event 2013

We completed our 2013 Wheels event today... Due to rain and already wet conditions, it was mostly a winch party. Our Discoveries turned circles around all of the fancy terrain response vehicles, and I decided to keep the Defender out of the soup. We took about a million pictures, so I'll post some when I get home.

I called to get a spot but since I didn't buy my truck there I got turned away. I was thinking about the event as I watched cold rain falling. I bet it was a fun day to be on the trails

I hate that they turned you away... We were trying to limit the invites to 15 customers from each of the three dealerships, but we had quite a few no-shows. Our trails were a little too sloppy from all of the rain. We were constantly using winches and it just brought things to a stand still... At least we tried!

Looking forward to the pictures. 45 trucks plus chaperoning Discoveries is a lot to put through any trail system.

Aye, it was a mess out there... I'm finally able to sit down and get some pictures loaded... I have a global accessible folder of 101 pictures already uploaded to Facebook, so look for "Dan Cook" if you want to check them out before I get them loaded here. https://www.facebook.com/dan.cook.56...9369862&type=1

Here are a couple while I'm getting the rest loaded...

You get the thumbnails by uploading directly to Defender source rather than uploading to scontent or whatever

I'm pleased to see RRC, D90 and 130 sprinkled around the place. As well as an FX4 inside the dealership. Red clay soil....

Free detailing for everyone afterwards?

I know, but people keep raving about the terrain response within the "powers that be" here... yeah, the street tires were hopeless, but it was kinda funny to see one of the Evoques float over the course near the beginning...

More pictures incoming, need food right now...
