Solaros trail ride to Charlies Creek in North GA

A few of the Solaros members and some invited guests from the Toyota group took advantage of a clear (but chilly) day to go run Charlies Creek trail a bit north of Lake Burton. It was followed by a run over Tray Mountain near Helen, GA. We had 11 trucks for the day including Tyrone in his new to him 2006 LR3.

He bought it at 8:00 PM the previous evening and had it in the woods 14 hours later. It handled everything we threw at it with ease - on street tires - river crossings, mud, v-ditches, rocky trails and slick culverts.







One of us had a little trouble remembering the proper technique for dealing with V-ditches...

Presented for your enjoyment - the classic cross-axle...
