Default Pine Barrens?

I've never been to the pine barrens and would love to get some more experience in the mud. Does anybody know when the next trip out there would be?

Mud??

So. Much. Sand.

I fly solo but I will give you a pro tip: throw on your snow tires for any outings, they do surprisingly well out there.

That and remove your fender flares, undertray, etc. afterwards to release 10-20 lbs. of unsolicited sand. Unless you go a lot, then just leave it. Digging holes just to fill them again sucks.

Been there, all 150 miles of it from PBX event. I pushed over 50 mph on loose sand, drifted and almost hit the trees. Broke my stock DP too. Night driving was fun but scary to break down there. $500 just to get you towed out of the woods, lucky we didn't. Just join us instead on the tri-state monthly drive that includes a rally road of about 7 miles. It had taken 2 cars so far though.

When do you do the monthly drive?
