    I am trying to work my schedule so I can make it. How many people are you expecting?
  • sbcookesbcooke Posts: 2,297
    Did you do it? I was looking at your site, did you get a Garbage plate at Nick Tahoes?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Yep we made the run. It was fun. We went to Duffs in Buffalo and never made it to Nick Tahoes. Pics at http://isuzu-suvs.com/events/48hrsoftristate/pics

  • Is that the home of the original Buffalo Wing?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Duffs is the Home of the Buffalo Wing. They were quite yummy. How did the bar go?

    -mike
  • is where the Buffalo Wing originated.
  • You are right. I went up to Buffalo to see the Pittsburgh Penguins play the Sabres in the playoffs last year and we went over to the Anchor inn and ate after the game. i couldn't remember the name of the bar though!

    I can't make it this weekend. I am on target for paragon however.
  • I too think I am going to paragon. Is everyone staying over night or are they headed home after the event?
  • sbcookesbcooke Posts: 2,297
    I am probably driving home. Hadn't thought about it. I am not against having a couple and sleeping over. I won't be able to decide until a little closer to the event.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Probably do dinner and head home afterward, but won't know til later on, it's not a warm fuzzy community up there apparently. The locals dislike the Paragon Park because it basically was used by them freely til the owner decided/realized he owned it and could make some $ by having the off-road park.

    -mike
  • How far away is Paragon from you guys?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Probably 1.5hrs from me, maybe a bit more. Probably less for SB.

    -mike
  • It will be like 6hrs for me, but I got a thumbs up from the boss lady so i may just drive out and stay overnight!
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181

    Just an FYI, Planet Isuzoo will be having a camping and off-road trip to Uwharrie, NC April 26-28. Everyone is invited! Details on the http://isuzu-suvs.com/events page.

  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Here are 2 upcoming trips.

    First is Aug 24-26 we'll be offroading in Uwharrie National Forest in NC.

    2nd is on Sept 21 we'll be offroading @ the Pine Barrens in Southern NJ. Hopefully we can get some Isuzus out there.

    -mike
  • Paisan how long is the drive to Uwharrie?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    It's 531miles from Butler, PA to Uwharrie, NC. I think its 560 from NYC->Uwharrie, NC.

    Usually what happens is we drive down on a Friday night after work, get down there early Sat morning. Sleep in on Saturday do a noon run on saturday, an afternoon or evening run sat. Sat night we make a big dinner and hang around the campfire til late. Sunday do morning afternoon and evening runs. Big dinner sunday night, then head out 1st thing on Monday morning to return home.

    Works out nicely. Hopefully you can make it, it's a great trip.

  • I am going to ask the wife tonight if she would care if I do it. I'll let you know. One thing though. I still haven't upgraded to OME coils and Ranchos so will I have any concerns about riding in a completely stock Trooper with 265 75-16s?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    I did uwharrie when I was bone stock on stock tires. There are bypasses so don't worry. It would be great to have you out there! :)

    -mike
  • What are the overnight ammenities....Tents???
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    It's tents on nicely paved spots with electric outlets in the sites. I'm probably going to reserve a site or 2 for us so that we don't get locked out. We usually pile in as many as possible :)
