New to Jeeping Run Sign-Up Thread - Flag Pole - CANCELED
« on: March 06, 2020, 08:41:00 PM »
The New to Jeeping Run at Flag Pole is stock Jeep friendly, family friendly, and a dog friendly outing.  This is the perfect run for new Jeepers, stock Jeeps, or anyone that just wants to get out and meet some new friends.  This ride tends to be an all day ride. 

Flag Pole has a little of everything.  We will take people up Union Springs to Meadow Knob, one of the most popular mountain clearings with awesome views for great photo ops.  We will break here for lunch.  Then we will head down Dunkle Hollow to Skidmore Lake.  If we have enough Jeepers sign up, some can drive the opposite route.  There are some fun hill climbs, some fun rocky obstacles, and some muddy water holes we will stop at so everyone can have some fun. 

We will ensure everyone has a lot of fun and learns a lot about off-roading. 

We will be meeting at the Food Maxx International Market parking lot 924 W Market Street, Harrisonburg, VA at 9AM.  Drivers meeting will be held at 9:30AM.

All non-members are required to have a waiver filled out for each person in their jeep.  It can be found here:

https://novajeepers.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/NVJA_waiver_of_liability.pdf

Please print and fill out the waiver prior to arrival and hand it to your trail leader.

If we have several groups of Jeeps, we may possibly need experienced Jeepers to lead a group, be the mid of a group, or be the tail of a group.

Required equipment for the trail ride includes:
A 4WD vehicle in good working order (with a full tank of gas)
Tow points, front and rear
Full size spare tire and whatever you need to change it on the trail (jack, lug wrench, wheel lock key, etc.)
Bring your lunch and drinks.  We will all eat lunch together.

The following are nice to have but not necessary:
CB Radio (necessary for group leads, mid, and tail)
Recovery equipment
A blanket or towel to sit on while disconnecting
Whatever you need to air down
Whatever you need to air up.........or you can drive to a local gas station to air up
Heavy duty zip ties (to hold the sway bar out of the way when disconnected - let me know if you need one)
Hand tools
A folding chair to sit on while eating lunch
Sunscreen and bug spray
TP in case you need to use the "restroom" on the trails

I’m in :)

I’d love to have my dad meet us there so he can drive my Jeep a bit too. He would be coming from a different part of the state so he’d be in a separate vehicle. Does anyone know of a surface lot or garage in Harrisonburg where he could park for the day while we are out? Thanks in advance

With that said, I believe VA is on stay at home until June 10th.

I’ll be down as a tentative on this. National Guard duty may have me away, if not I’ll come hit the trails.

The lot where you are meeting at Food Maxx usually has plenty of space, as long as you leave his vehicle on the upper end of the lot, it shouldn't be a problem.

Put me down as a yes.

Yeah I'd be sure to keep the date flexible, June is a long way off, and lots of chances things could change between now and then.

Yep, current shelter in place is through June 10th.  We've been talking behind the scenes and will of course follow any State and/or Federal restrictions.  Hopefully we'll all be on the trails in a couple months.  We could all use some Jeep therapy!

I would love to come! However, with that date being quite far away, I may need to back out (hopefully not). Please put me down as a yes:)
