Jeep XJ Cherokee Crawl in Tellico 7-9 to 7-12
It's too late to pre-register, but if you are an XJ/MJ owner with some spare time next week or weekend...come on out!
North American XJ Assoc.
Murphy (Upper Tellico ORV area) NC
July 10-12 2003
Come one, come all to the 5th Annual NAXJA Cherokee Crawl in the Upper Tellico ORV area. Where a bunch of guys, gals, kids, dogs, and XJs, get together to run the trails, hang out, visit local attractions and generally have fun. We invite all NAXJA members, XJ/MJ owners, and their family members to come out for some fun!
The trails in Tellico vary from bedtime prayers to snake-handling revivals. There are trails for stock XJs (although they ain't tame - you will need protection), and others that will test the mettle of the 38¨, dual lockers and winch crowd. This ain't nice dry rock. Oh sure, there are lots of rocks, but they are often surrounded by sweet, gooey TN/NC mud. At least the stream crossing will give you a chance to clean it out of your tires and brakes.
