When is unzu?
 ;D I'm aiming for my final uwharrie adventure to be in October (looking at last half). Anyone else down to link up and ride together?

Additionally, since my Tahoe will be pulling a camper this will be the first long drive I take in my zuk. It's a 3 hour drive in a capable vehicle. Probably a 4-5 hour in a 55mph samurai. Is it save to run it in 4th the whole time to achieve 65-70mph? Anything special I should inspect?

Beekiller will make the final call, but in the past has been the third weekend on October.
I'm hoping October 14-16 2016.

That's the target weekend!  Sure hope you can make it.  Been hoping to hook up with you for a trail run.  [thumbsup]
Fourth should be ok so long as the engine isn't overrevving.  4k or a little more should be fine with a decent motor.


On a side note:. Been kicking around the idea of putting together a Saturday meal if there is sufficient interest.  There would be some caveats.  Preregistration would be mandatory.  No preregistration would mean no meal.  Thoughts?

All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

 [thumbsup] I'm always down. Even if it's just bullpoop burgers and hot dogs with chips. It ain't about the food, it's about being around fellow zuk enthusiasts. (But cool the burgers the right way, don't smash the grease out leaving dried poopy burgers)
[idea]
Take my number down and maybe we can schedule a zuk train to run through all the trails at once. That'd be tight!

Hey Fellas!  Kinda been off for a little while. Been monitored for limits of motion in my legs.
When I was at the Zu my legs and ankles swelled and I left a little earlier than I wanted. I wanted to hang out 
until Jeshar left, but I was swelled pretty badly so I left while I could. Seems I'm loosing motor limits in my legs at a fairly alarming rate , according to my Doctor in Greensboro. She discovered a rare bone disease that grows the area around the head of my Femars in a way that is limiting leg movement to the point of irritating my muscles and nerves so that is why my pain has grown so intense and probably causing my legs and ankles to swell. Can't even begin to pronounce the name!
Duke is the only area Hospital that has a study on why this happens and what actions need to be taken, so I'm at the mercy of 
research once again. I hope to put off any type of surgery that will cause lost time for me when this weather cools and I can take a little time for enjoying the fall. Don't have any idea what the next move is, but I'm not just gonna lay down and not go and get in my little pup tent at least once more before winter hits, so count me in! I'll get there one way or another. Wanted to drive the Zuk or the tracker, but the tracker won't be done. May just drive the old Sidekick as it is stock and do my parts swapping after! 
 Thanks for lending an ear! 
Sorry been off so long!!

Sure will.  I'm gonna make sure they work around MY schedule when it becomes a process that makes sense!
If I have recovery time, it's gonna hafta be in the cold months, when my tents too cold and stiff to put up!
Thank you Mr. Robert! we'll get together on cost of site. Makes it a little less expensive for Ya! ;D

Looks like I'm going to be able to make it this year to the Un-ZU!  It will be a test and tune weekend for me currently doing some suspension and height modifications so it will be interesting to see how she does. Anyone who saw my rig at this past zu should have noticed how high it sat with those coilovers but now I dropped it 10 inches and sits way lower lol and now I also have 39.5 iroks lol. Anyway beekiller I will not be running for consecutive carnage awards so go ahead and get that image out of your head lol.

Is there anyone one from the Hampton roads area going?  If so let's figure out a day and convoy up there. Can't wait to see y'all this October!!!

YAY!!! Good to see a few people comin! Can't wait. Kind of hoping I break something. (Though I did notice a decent dent in my front diff from last time.)

Just put a SPOA and Hi steer kit on my buddies zuk, he'll be there too. One last hoorah before I leave for Kansas.

I am proud to say that now I got my bumper welded CORRECT this time. Thing is solid now.
