    this is where we met up, my jeep is the cj5, the other is a cherokee, stock, running new 235/15's. i didnt take mine on account of the exhaust still being ***** rigged over the rear axle. no job = no $.

    I see PL right of ways, but is it private land?

      yes and no, 1400 acres. the owner is lilla schnider and her husband josh schnider, but 90% of those pics nobody owns, josh and lilla only own up to the 3rd or 4th powerline & the rest is the counties.

      great folks, we know them well. it comes out at a church about 4 miles down, it would take a long day to travel it all at once, we only caught about 4 hours.

      was fun, i spotted most of the time

          Just do not EVER post any pics like this on nc4x4.com. They will berate you for driving on "private" property. If most of it is owned by the county, it is considered private. Duke Power actually owns the right of ways, regardless of whose property it is on. That in itself is tresspassing. FWIW, I've run a few around Charlotte a few times, but now that they are actually posted, I stay away. 'Twas some nice trails too.

          Still, I'm glad you have a decent place to play in this eco-nazi state.

            acutally we looked up/researched the policies, only duke power can pose any threats/tickets, only thing the cops can do is give us tickets if an NC licensed wrecker company has to come get us un-stuck (haha yeah right) or if theres a rollover on their property, or if duke presses charges themselves. the reason why is because the entrance and 1/16 of the trail is private property and we have permission to trespass, in addition to no signs being posted

            thats only the beginning of the trail though, it goes out beside a HUGE underground pipeline for gas, for at least 20 miles. havent had the tents and time to camp out and see where the rest of it goes. (now that is ticket worthy, i made sure my buddy/cop was clear about it when i emailed him on the subject my first time out)

            otherwise... this is
            out.
            in.
            the.
            boonies.

            and im sorry, im not driving 6 hours round trip to tellico to have an afternoon of 2 hours of fun, the cops can get over it

            appreciate the care though, really do! we stay clear of the church and such on sundays so we dont bother anybody.

            and oh yea, im a member of nc4x4, if your not 21 they kinda look down on you and your required to have a sponsor for the site, someone to recommend you, otherwise you can post in the general chat room and nowhere else, and no tech questions allowed.. just reading.

              I haven't gotten one yet. I leave mud on the road almost every day in front of my house. I have a few trails in my woods that I run on.

              IF you ever need a sponsor on nc, and don't post any pics like this, I'll do it. I've sponsored a few people before. It hasn't bitten me in the butt yet.

              The drive to tellico is only 4.5 hours. The drive time to Harlan is about the same, but more of it is actually highway. They're well worth the drive, but I can appreciate the desire to get a little dirty close to home. Also, check out webwheeling.com. Quite a few local folk on there and there's a lot of group rides posted up. It's another good site to keep in mind.

                    NO problem, I'll PM a mod tonight.

                    On the rockwell thing, some of the rigs on that board are something I could only dream about. As far as "hardcore" tech goes, I'd put nc right up there with pirate. A lot of those guys have built some very impressive buggies.

                      yeah i was very impressed when ray posted the link for me. thats why i never bothered, i go there to read and read only, and anything insane i ask here, feels more like family here other than ppl that hate your guts

                        Yeah, I very rarely respond to tech posts there. Usually there's someone more qualified than me to respond as a lot of it is non-jeep related.

                          Looks like fun!

                          Man...this thread is rather sad too...at least for me. I grew up 'wheeling in northwest Montana...but now everything is closed, privately owned or otherwise shut down. We used to run the powerline roads tho. No-one ever hasseled us there either.

                            yea i know what you mean. Hickory is getting huge, but theres gotta be over 4,000 acres out here thats underground pipelines and powerlines that you can build near, not to mention the terrain isnt exactly flat =]

                            and yea, thats another reason why i love 4wdh more, is because its jeeps and jeeps only. not offroad in general. i guess that falls into the family thing again, because

                            Its a Jeep Thing, You Dont Understand =]
