Flagpole Last Saturday with NoVA Jeepers

We went out last Saturday on the NoVA Jeepers Spring Fling Run to Flagpole outside of Harrisonburg, VA. The following link is the Webshots album of our pictures on the run. We were the only Commander, and all the new armor underneath worked out fabulously. A couple thumps had us worried, but all damage was taken by the skids and rock rails. The guy behind us on most of the trail had a brand new winch he wanted to test, and thought he would by getting behind us. I'm glad to say, that even with the stock Forteras that have 40,000 miles on them, he never got a chance to use the winch. The last couple of pictures are of a trail that runs through the river, and we did not run through it, the water was definitely way too high for us.

Definitely need to hook up CrzCajun. The rogue Toyotas were another group we found at the top of Flagpole. They were not with us.

We had a blast as usual. We had two creek crossings, but we did NOT do the river crossing. The river was higher than usual with the superfluous rain we have had lately and the river was quite deep. I saw a couple of TJs submarine, the leader in a 4-dr JK submarined, but luckily they came back up with no problems. The shortest TJ that went through was stock with the exception of 32" tires. The water was at the top of his headlights. Needless to say, we would've been under.

I want to say these mountains are part of the Blue Ridge, but I've been looking at different maps that point they are more along the Appalachian Ridge.

Very awesome. Hopefully you'll come out to our camping trip. Would be nice to have someone there who's a little more familiar with the area.
