Default Moving from FL, looking for friends near Raleigh!

Hey guys,

Well I was offered a job at service building supply at the new branch in Raleigh NC. I should be moving up at the end of March maybe first week of April, and I am hoping to meet some fellow ranger owners and get aquatinted with some local trails and mud holes! For the first two months I am going to be living off Pope road in Creedmoor. I'm super excited to get up there and to see how my 200k ranger does on the 12 hour drive from Sarasota! Thanks

I am unaware of any local trails in the surrounding area but I have not looked either. Most involve a little bit of a drive. If you ride ATV or dirt bike, I can think of at least 2 or 3 places off the top of my head. If you are a fan of walking/running or cycling there is a pretty good sized greenway system.

Welcome to NC!

You have a few closer options for ATV.

I have never been to either one of these so I can not vouch for how good they are. I dumped my bike pretty good at Uhwarrie and have not been back on it since september. Beginner pretty much describes my skill level. I would be up for a ride for sure.

Well I am here! Living in creedmoor for a while! My trusty ranger was loaded down pretty heavy but man that truck never ceases to amaze me got me here on time, in one piece and with 95% of my worldly possessions in tow. I really thought I'd be doing 50-55 the whole way but she got out and did 65-75 mph! So happy with it
