My first 4WDing experience
My first 4wd experience was rescuing my friend's car from the beach in Wildwood, N.J. I got it unstuck using his bumper jack and some driftwood from the dunes. We sent one guy on the minibike to find help, and they came back in a lifted blazer only to find the car safely in the parking lot of the nearest hotel.
My recent 4x4 adventures
Been wheeling the last few weekends with my club at a somewhat secret location that is close to home.
Great destinations for camping and 4WDing
As of yet, I have not been able to combine these two activities but I'm close.
My dream rides
been thinking about West Virginia lately

Lake Wylie Wheelers

Club information that I would like to share
The club is based in the area to the west and South of Charlotte, N.C. We have many members although I stopped counting after 100. Some stay in contact and attend events, others have moved out of the area. It is a family oriented club. We usually have a potluck picnic meet-n-greet about once a month, and wheel at local spots, Uwharrie, and sometimes Gulches too. https://www.facebook.com/groups/lakewyliewheelers/ Sorry the link may not work. We are on Facebook "Lake Wylie Wheelers"
