We are currently growing in size on the FB page of the OFFROADTB group, so I suggest we resurrect the TECORE to initiate all the new family members (myself included). Time and location are open to suggestions, but let make it sooner than later. Summer is coming up and would be a great time. As most of the members are from the north and middle of America, we should meet somewhere easy for all to access. I'm thinking George Washington National Forest? Let me know what y'all think and let's get this thing going!

I was kicking the idea around last week with James. Was thinking of GWNF April 21st-23rd or 28th-30th.

I can't make the 21-23 weekend, one of my guys has a fight out of town, so I'll be there with him and the team. The 28th seems good to me.

I cannot do April. I was hoping to do a run in the summer, when my son is out of school and I have some leave available. I am leaning towards either GWNF or Rush Offroad in KY.

I'll be watching this thread. I hope to be able to go, but if this week is any indicator, I'll be busy all spring and summer. NC already has had over a dozen wildfires this week in the coastal region.

Ooooh exciting! I always watch out for these to see if there's any chance I might be able to go. It probably won't happen for a few years with school and everything (and me living down south) but maybe!

First time hearing about TECORE. Googled it. Found a link from '09 event at GWNF. My baby won't be ready by April. But I'll Def catch the next one. Looks like a good time.

If I can get my motor built, truck back together, and tuned up, I might be in this year! I'm pretty flexible! Spring is best for me. :cheers:

Any chance you guys would pick a spot closer to the midwest? was looking to see what was around Mark Twain National Forest. Just a thought, also I would love to go but would have to be into early mid June.

Wouldn't really be TECORE if it was in the midwest, east coast is EC in it. You can always do another trip in your area, good wheeling from what I hear I just haven't made it out there yet.

Bingo...put something together and post up your own version in the locale you want. We have done several Badlands and similar trips in the past, but never gave a it a name.

Has anything ever come about? Or did I miss it.
