Graves Mountain Military Vehicle and Vintage 4x4 Trail Rides

Postby CGarbee » Tue May 23, 2017 11:29 am

Just thought that I would remind everyone that we will be having the 9th Annual Graves Mountain Military Vehicle and Vintage 4x4 Trail Rides in VA again this year over the Labor Day weekend.
Event dates are August 31-September 4, 2017 in scenic Syria, Virginia, at the historic Graves Mountain Lodge.
The website has info including a flyer/registration page.

We always have a bunch of M37 and other military vehicles and are looking for more.

Ran into these videos today and was reminded that Karl is hoping to bring the halftrack again this year...

The shirt order was placed this afternoon... We'll have plenty of them for those of you who attend... Chuck's done a great job with the design again this year...
Also, speaking of shirts, Rick Sultan of http://dodgepowerwagongear.com/ is donating a box of swag for us to use as prizes for the Saturday afternoon truck games, etc...

Just a reminder, or a plea, to get your registration forms in so that we can ensure that we have everything ready for when you arrive...and so that you can save a few bucks...

For those of you attending the Graves Mountain Trailrides and Rally next week in Virginia:

Time for two really big reminders!

We do NOT have gas/fuel at the Syria Mercantile... Closest place to put go juice in your MV is in Madison, so make sure that you fill up the tanks and jerry cans on the way in...
We do NOT have cell phone coverage in the area (ok, we do up on top of the mountain and in some spotty locations, but just plan on not having a signal).
We do have internet via WIFI at the Lodge, Syria Mercantile, etc. It can get slow...

If you have an emergency and somebody needs to get word to you, have them call the Lodge office and they will relay it down to Chuck in the HQ tent. The nature of the emergency will have an effect on how fast the message gets down the hill and to you...
