Need ride from Atlanta to VA

Anyone coming up to NOVA from Atlanta anytime, soon, or have room to bring a 10-12' wooden ladder back from Uhwarrie perhaps? To further my LR addiction I am building a garage with a loft and need a big library ladder to access the loft area. There is an affordable one for sale in Atlanta which I am considering, but need a plan to get it up here before pulling the trigger.

tia,
charles

I can offer a "maybe" in mid-to-late September.

It sure does, and I haven't ruled it out. I'm not even sure when it is this year, but I know I am totally over committed on projects and blew my wheeling time budget last month so it's very unlikely (or I skip the MAR to do so).

I did not see a date for Uwharrie... I know SAE is doing Tellico on Sep 16-18

Anyone knows dates for Uwharrie?

Why do you want to know? You're not going.

The Old North State Land Rover Society dropped thier website and joined forces with the dark league of social networking. They are now a FACEBOOK only Land Rover club (shudder).

The next URE will be October 20-23 - they already have the Badin Lake Campground booked.

I have never made an October URE and will try to make it this year.

[QUOTE=Rugbier;295273]You drove your truck to one event 2 hours from home and all the sudden you are Bill Burke?

In a Series that's what, 50 miles?

URE is a great event, and the weather is normally near ideal. We, ONSLRS, are having some potential changes at the helm, hence the lack of info yet, sorry. More to come for sure...

Charles- if you can get it this far rather quickly, I have a tentative meeting with Doug next week at Will's shop in Danville.

Thanks for the offer Dale. At this point I'm doing my thing - wearing down my wife until I convince her it's a good idea I go to Uhwarrie to fetch it Two weeks after the MAR is pushing it, but I think I can pull it off.

That said, if someone is coming up to the MAR from Atlanta that would work too.
