    Vehicle:
    04 PreRunner TRD Off Road
    Bilstein 5100s with Eibach coils, 265/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, BAMF Rock Sliders, BAMF Behind Grill Light Bar w/ Hella 500's, Grillcraft MX Series Grill, Cobra CB w/ PA Speaker
    So here's the plan...

    There will be two different convoys over to Shoe Creek:
    -The first convoy will be those looking to camp for the weekend. CAMPERS LEAVE ON FRIDAY 25 JANUARY 2013 AT NOON (1200) from the Target on Jefferson Ave. in Newport News, VA. For those going in this convoy, we will be on cb channel 25. This convoy will hopefully arrive at Shoe Creek around 1600 giving plenty of time to find camp, set it up, and have a chance to relax and hangout around the campfire. On Saturday morning, plan on meeting up with everyone and doing some wheeling at 1000. After everyone gets through the trails we can gas up and return to camp. Sunday we will wake up, pack our gear, and head home. It will be up to all the campers whether we all head home together or at our own pace, however it is still preferred to at least travel in pairs in case of emergency.
    -The second convoy will be those looking to go do some wheeling and be back the same day. NON-CAMPERS WILL LEAVE ON SATURDAY 26 JANUARY 2013 AT 0600 from the Target on Jefferson Ave. in Newport News, VA. This convoy will hopefully arrive at Shoe Creek around 1000 when everyone will meet up and hit the trails. This should allow enough time to get through the trails and get these guys home at a decent hour.
    *NOTE* For those who don't live near the Hampton Roads area, if you do not plan on meeting us at the Target in Newport News, we all will be stopping at the BP in Amherst around 1530 and plan on leaving around 1600. Be sure to gas up here because we dont want anyone running out while we hit the trails! See the address for the BP below.

    Brief overview of schedule:
    Friday 25 Jan 2013:
    1145 - (Campers) Meet at Target in Newport News, VA.
    1200 - (Campers) Depart from Target to Shoe Creek.
    1530 - (Campers) Arrive at BP in Amherst to meet with those not in the main convoy.
    1600 - (Campers) Depart from BP in Amherst to Shoe Creek to set up camp.
    Saturday 26 Jan 2013:
    0545 - (Non-Campers) Meet at Target in Newport News, VA.
    0600 - (Non-Campers) Depart from Target to Shoe Creek.
    1000 - ETA of non-campers. Time for wheelin'! After finishing trails, non-campers head home, campers return to camp.
    Sunday 27 Jan 2013:
    (Time TBD) - (Campers) Return to home.

    Amherst BP Address:
    1495 North Amherst Highway
    Amherst, VA 24521

    Shoe Creek Address:
    2097 Perkins Mill RD

    Things to keep in mind:
    -If you do not have a CB radio, but plan on getting one in the future, there is no better time than now! Anyone with a CB will likely have it on
    the entire way there and back as well as through the trails.
    -Have front and rear tow points (especially prerunners).
    -Dress warm! It will be the middle of winter and we will be at a higher elevation so it will be even colder!!!
    -Bring your cameras! If possible, send me videos and pictures. I will make a short video after the meet and the more cool pictures and
    videos we have the better! (PM me for my email address)
    -Have fun! That's what this meet is all about. It's a blessing for everyone to be able to come together and enjoy the great outdoors by
    slinging mud and climbing rocks on four wheels.

    Again, thanks to everyone for your patience, cooperation, and participation. This trip is going to be a big success and a heck of a lot of fun. Be sure to stay posted for updates and if there are any issues or concerns please don't hesitate to give your feedback by replying to this thread. Also feel free to contact me on my cell phone. Just PM me for my cell number and let me know who you are when I receive a call/text from you.

    Realistically, what all will be needed for a shoe creek trip? Like camping gear, etc.. This is all so new to me.
