Adults only Camping and Wheeling Weekend

  • Sep 27, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • Shoe Creek

Its that time. Time for a trip with only grown ups. 

We do this once a year. A chance to get away, have adult conversations and drink adult beverages without having anyone's little ones there. 

We are going up early Friday Morning. Meeting at the Hooters in Hampton at 7am. and on the road to Shoe Creek by 7:30am. If you can't make that, its cool. You are welcome to show up at any time or even come up on Saturday for the trail ride itself and just make a day trip of it. 

Saturday we are going to ride the trail around 9-10 am (or later, depending upon when everyone gets motivated.). There is a 1.5 mile hike out to the top of Crabtree Falls that many go on. You don't have to if you don't want to. If you have never done it, I highly recommend it. There are many pictures of it on this site.

i.e. (Spring -2013, Spring -2012, Feb 2010, and many more.

There are several trails at shoe creek and several more a few miles away. SO a lot of fun to be had by all.

After Breakfast on Sunday we head home, but you are welcome to stay and hang out. But I would prefer that you do not do it alone.

I always like to schedule a wrenching party the week before to help anyone who wants to make sure their rig is safe for the trip. If you have gear you want to install, like a bumper, roof rack, etc. we can do that too. there are several mechanics in our club and will be happy to teach you what you want to know. But you don't have to come to one in order to go to the other. 

Campsites are open to the public and free. They are first come, first serve. We do require that you bring down the mountain anything you bring up plus any trash that we clean up while we are there.

There is no cell signal, no wifi, and little to no radio reception. And that's how we like it. 

*********Note*********

We have a great group of people. We have a lot of fun. But we have had individuals in the past who just don't get it. 

The bottom line - This trip is about having fun, riding the trails, and staying safe. 

Click Here: (FILES) to find directions to Shoe Creek. They are very easy to follow. There is also a lot of other items there that I recommend on that page and one that I require. The release and waiver of liability. Please Print it, sign it and bring a copy for every person attending. I will not leave anyone up on the mountain but I will not be responsible if you act like a jackass and break your rig or get yourself hurt via a stupid act.

So, come on out and have a great time. Hope to see you all there.

    Other than Brenton and I, is anyone else leaving Friday morning and is going to meet at Hooters by 0730? I'm asking because if nobody else is going to be there, then there is no reason for us to stop there. So could everyone please post when they are leaving? Thank you

    We have 1 fire start log, but it would be great if everyone brought 1. This way we can start the fire each morning and after we come back from riding the trails

    Brenton and I will be leaving the Hooters in Hampton No later than 0730. We are both carrying a lot of weight so we won't be hauling ass. The directions will take you west on 64 until you get to rt 29 south (Exit 118A). about 24 miles and you will come to Lovingston where there is a food lion, a gas station, Subway and ABC Store. It is the last place to fuel up before going to the mountain. Plus with subway and the ABC store you can get lunch/dinner that you don't have to cook and last minute beverages.

    We should be at the campsite by 11am, so if you have any questions feel free to call me by 10:30. There is no cell signal on the mountain, sorry. my number is[masked]

    Working on getting off that Saturday. If I can come I'll probably leave Saturday around 7am from Chesapeake. I know how to get over to Stoney Run/Big Levels too. It's about 30 min away and has some very rocky areas combined with some places to splash. Stock jeeps will do fine.

    September 16, 2013

  • maneely

    How is this for stock jeeps?

    September 14, 2013

      I have a throttle body spacer I may want to get some help with. I still want to cut up the hood for the louvers too.

      September 11, 2013

    • Rob N

      The spacer is easy if you have the longer bolts for it. The hood louvers are not that hard either.

      September 14, 2013

  • Rob N

    I am really looking forward to this trip.
