I thought the event was a good first attempt for a winter venue. The trails have lots of potential.

Next year more trail guides are needed to reduce group size and trail lag, as well as staggering/scheduling the usage of trails.

I agree Jonathan. With the late snow this season and the resort deciding to keep the slopes open really threw a wrench in the mix too.

I converted to 110 dieselism this weekend. I've never wheeled a 110 or a diesel before this weekend. Man what a difference. My old 110 did a good job. She carted the wife, two boys and a 100lb dog to the resort, thru the trails all three days and back home today without a single issue. Pic on the backside of Shoe Creek.

I retract my previous comment about precip...

Snow yesterday like this would have been a game changer altogether.

Imagine if you added all the offroad bits like you have on your 97

Sunday morning a few of us went back out with Bob to replace an old washing machine that was moved to the wrong spot (long story).
Anyway, it was on the trail from Friday's scenic drive.
We almost made it back when Bob's coolant reservoir tank decided to split.
Anyone hear if he made it back to Richmond??
We were leaving the lodge around 11...

My best pics from the weekend...





^check that awesome headlight upgrade^

Darn, it looked like a great time. I've got to get a rover back on the road. I'm glad everyone had a fun and no carnage to flesh or sheetmetal happened. I really missed hanging out with everyone. My weekend was spent assembling my new Bendpak 4-post lift and shuffling stuff around to get it into the garage tall bay. With the Def/IIA now in the garage I might actually make further progress.

Ha! Those thoughts were running through my mind the whole weekend. Grabbing that sweet thang Brooks has up for sale would be smart.

^ Good to meet you Clay^

I was next to you in my tan Hunter in the parking lot Sat afternoon.

Here's a pic of Justin sneaking his Rangie next to some real trucks... real Range Rovers have round headlights...




What is this thing parked on the slopes??

The white 90, the white Disco, and the white 110 all belong to the same guy...

That 110 is #110.

Jeff...sorry I missed you - and everyone else this trip! My RRC is back on the road (somewhat) with a 4.6 heart....I didn't get it through state inspection prior to the rally so couldn't make it. My 109" farted the carby into pieces so replacing that as well...all in all typical Rover issues...

Oh well - look like everyone had a great time!!! Pics are awesome.

CLAY - glad to hear the diesel went well!

Jeff, great to meet you too. That Hunter is amazing. Soapy Rovers so little time.

Who knows what that thing is? Sign of the times I guess. My two boys were at the event this weekend one 11 and one 14. They both think that thing is cool. There's no fighting it. That just means more Rovers for us.

Clay

Had a great time. Great seeing you all. We only had 3 of us on the extreme trails. Lots of fun.

How did that all go? Sounds ideal to me. Who needs more that them on an extreme trail, right?

Lots of rocks, off cambers, and creeks. Amazing to see the water flood out of the ground. Spring thaw was in full force Sat. Made for some fun times.

Can we do non-scheduled events up there - seems like a fun opportunity to camp out and wheel close by to NOVA....I think i read somewhere it is a privately owned piece of land?

It was killing me not to have a capable vehicle with me this time but hopefully ill have my 90 with me next year.

The summer rally Bob was talking about is a great location. Pots mountain has some great trials if memory serves me right.
