Union Point Ga. Oct.8-12

Postby whiterabbit » July 21st, 2014, 9:03 am

Anyone going to the big rally down here in Georgia? I'm going and this is the 3rd time I've gone. I've taken the LR and now will be bringing the A2 for the wife to run the trails! Tons of fun, swap meet, off roading, and camping.
The rally takes place October 8th-12th, 2014, rain or shine, in Union Point, Ga. at Durhamtown Plantation (D-town). D-town is a resort in Eastern Ga. which caters to the hunting, motocross, ATV and offroading markets. They have thousands upon thousands of acres which they have cultivated into hunting, ATV/motocross tracks and several years ago, they expanded into the fullsize vehicle offroad market by cutting trails and obstacles through over 1,200 acres of land. D-town has a restaurant with breakfast, lunch and dinner, cabins and RVs available for rental and they’ve set up RV hookups in our field along with wi-fi.
This is s Steel Soldiers event and more info can be found in the "events" section.
Hope to see plenty of M151s there!! :D

Night trail ride. Blazers always get stuck! I pulled this one out.

Nice trails and "go a rounds" for the really nasty stuff.

This rally is a ton of fun.

Yea, it's the SSGa Rally. Pretty big bash but with a family reunion kind'a feel. I like that it's on a huge off road park and the night trail rides are a blast! :D

There was 2 151's there last year and the wife's will hopefully make 3 this year! Representing!!!
Just got word from one of my friends up in Tn. He's bringing his LR lightweight again and a 101 and Belgian 1tn.
This rally has over 100 military vehicles running around,huge swap meet and the BBQ run/convoy on Saturday is insane! Me? I love the trail rides and camping.
Anyone in the region with a MV really needs to go. You won't be disappointed.

2 weeks till the rally! Good thing I'm bringing the 109, I don't think everything would have fit in the A2. :lol:
Took the A2 on a 100 mile road trip a few times last week. All seems to be fine. I have a 100lb thick rubber mat I might toss in the back to cut down the rear diff noise. :roll: It's a 3hr road trip, all back country roads.
Getting pretty good MPG. 18 mpg average so far. Did an oil change and Wix oil filter.
Rumor has it there will be a track vehicle there too! SWEET!
If you're in that neck of the woods you have to come to it.
