    Went there last month. White Pocket is incredible. Hope you liked it.

    Didn't look at the distance but it felt like about 12 miles just in the sand.

    It did felt a very long time going over sand starting from the valley to White Pocket. My biggest complains was going back because so many freaking vehicles keep on coming and I had to find spots to squeeze around them. Going there in the morning was nice, no incoming traffic and I was the only one heading there, I was the first vehicle to arrive.
    I used 4low all the way in the sand, between 2nd and 3rd gear. I only had to use 1st gear once going up a rocky spot since I didn't want to hit anything under so I had to go like 2 mph on 1st gear in 4low.
    Did you use 4hi or 4low? I'm just curious what you or others use in these type of sand trails.

    Sand trails I have been using 4hi and lower the tire pressure to around 17 psi.

    Did a few long sand trails and it worked well so far but it only takes one time where it doesn't. We went later in the day and it was dark by the time we drove back. No other vehicles. Drove from Hurricane as a day trip so spend a long time on the road both directions.

    That's good to know. I left my tire pressure at 32 which is what I set to, didn't drop the tire pressure since I wanted to see how it will go on these Falken tires and it went fine without having to drop it.

    That sounds rough! I'm glad you're through the recovery. Thankfully, mine is just the fibula. The orthopedic says no surgery, although I'm skeptical that it's going to heal properly, as it's not a "clean" break. (I guess we'll see). He wants to see me again in 2 weeks to take another x-ray, and he may change his mind at that point. You are correct that it is my driving foot. Unfortunately, no bearing weight and no driving for a minimum of 5 to 6 weeks. :(

    I took my wife and son on a joy ride up a narrow dirt road in Clay County, NC.

    We came in on Cold Branch Rd.(paved) and headed towards Tuni Gap.
    The dirt road was single vehicle wide with very few turnouts if you encountered an oncoming vehicle.

    The road was relatively mild with just a few deep ruts and shallow mud holes.
    But, it had my boy smiling and bounced him around enough to be fun.

    There are several places where the banks on both sides of the road are a good 10 feet higher than the cab and narrow. It would have made a good picture.

    This road takes you up to Nantahala Lake. From there we headed towards Tellico Gap and then home.

    Truck did great, but my tires suck.

    Yesterday: got it stuck. Darkness was falling and I was on the way home, saw a forested parcel that had recently been cleared and thought, “Eh, I’ll check it out. What’s the worst that could happen?” Turned into a boggy situation with soft clay really quickly. Sunk right in, resting on the rear diff. Came back today and spent a few hours digging and positioning traction boards. Didn’t make much progress until the cavalry arrived with their 37” MTs. Pulled me right out!
