Just booked #34 for Friday and Saturday nights. I'm bringing my son Brad and my grandson Will. I do have a question since this is my first time camping, are they strict on the 4 PM check in if no one is there prior, or can I pull up at any time on Friday?

It has never been a problem in the past. I have checked in as early as 1 PM. But we don't know if things have changed. Janet left last year and we don't know what the new host will do. I suspect that the 4 pm time was only to provide time for a turnover of the site, just like in hotels. Since most times there is no one leaving the site on the day we arrive, I do not think it will be an issue to arrive in early. Just go to your site and you will see your name posted on a sign. Set up camp. There is no formal check-in.

x2 on this. I was out there the week before last and arrived at my reserved spot at 11a, no one had been there the day prior so there was no problem with me getting settled in. The current site host is super nice, I'll be there this coming week and will tell her to take good care of anyone driving an ISUZU on this weekend. :mrgreen:

Ok I am off crutches and reserved site 13 the 2cnd-6th. While healing up from the motorcycle accident I took the time to do a few things to the trooper. First on the list was strengthening all I bent last Hollowharrie. I did address the HD tie rod ends, center link and idler arm. We will see if they hold up. Second was upper and lower control arm bushings. The first two went like clock work and I felt like doing a write up to show all you complainers how its done but after the second two about killed me I felt like selling the old girl or swapping the IFS out for straight axle! Holy cow those bushings sucked! sucked SUCKED! While I had the front apart I decide to squeeze as much up and down out of the IFS as I POSSIBLY could. This ended up being a month long project. I cut, shaved, re-splined, welded, sanded.........superglued......ok no superglue....I squeezed 10.5" of travel, about 7" up and 3.5" down. Sounds impossible I know but I have documented it and will post it one day. I then turned my attention to something that was alive on the Planet years ago but died.......Thats all I can say right now. Im in the middle of that project along with running dual exhaust with crossover pipe. Well I have a month or so but I hope to be done with it all in two weeks or less. Hope everyone has a safe trip up and back. See yall there.

I'd like to make it out and meet some of the crew. Had the pleasure of stopping by Mr. J.Lemond's place to pick up some parts recently - awsome guy!

I have a bunch of work to do on my trooper before I feel its trail ready, with any luck will get most of it done. ( manual lock hubs, ball joints, wheel bearings, brake upgrade, fix wiper motor, replace alternator, install winch? etc) and the big one - replace the CV axles. My passenger side axle does not seat into the diff properly. Whatever holds it into the center chunk is missing or broken - Jerry tells me this a big job. ugh, oh well...

If I can not get all done, I will probably just ride up, camp out and maybe ride shotgun with someone?

I'll be coming out of Suwanee, GA or maybe Cumming, GA if I have to leave from work. I'd be up for a caravan, if anyone is interested. CB install will happen this weekend - if my luck holds out.


Any camp sites better/ worse for tents?


Looking forward to the trip and meeting some new friends. :D

There are a couple of towns close by with cheap hotels/motels. Lexington and Albermarle are the two bigger ones that I know have hotels but there may even be places in Troy.

Just booked a cabin on some website, not a URE cabin, but one on 109 somewhere between Troy and the Outpost, so after a 2 year absence, the DMD will be rolling URE way. Can hardly wait! Plan is for Blaine (MrDunge) to meet up and follow me down and trying to get Mike( PhotoTrooper) on board too. Mike might be shaky, new baby girl and working on getting on with the VA State Police haven't left a lot of time to work on his Trooper. But at least two more first gen's headed down and we are prettying them up for the ride. My LSD rear is out (noisy) but hope to have it back in before we leave, open rear is in until I can get it done. Looking forward to seeing the Shack in person and wondering how much VA Gentleman it will take to fix the door :D
