So I made my way to Peter's Mill Run in VA today, checked in and started from the south end. About half a mile in, my 3 year old son was asking me to turn back because it was too bumpy. So I'm pretty disappointed I didn't get to finish the trail but I don't want to completely turn the kid off from trail running. Also found out the SD card in my GoPro is shot.
So I start down 81 towards NC and stop at a rest stop and check my email. I have a Badge of Honor email saying I earned the badge for Peter's Mill. Do you really just have to check in at these trails to "earn" the badges?

Yeah, to be honest, you just have to be at a trail to get credit for it, but I take it as a matter of honesty that I’ll only display a badge for a trail I’ve completely run.

Well, that is somewhat unfortunate to hear. I was figuring it'd track the GPS signal or something since it needs to be on to use the app.

Who can tell me about Crawl Daddy? Is it doable in a stock Rubicon if you pick good lines? I had a guy in a JL with 37's tell me he struggled with a good spotter.

Just my opinion, but I’d say it’s relatively difficult stock, so expect lots of bumps and scrapes. You will definitely need a spotter.

Big trip next week. Bearwallow WV, Windrock TN, Redbird SRA IN. Been doing alot of research on all of em; Youtube, trail maps, rules and regulations. Each is different, and so are the permit prices. Yikes

It will only let you check in when your gps signal is on/near the trail. After that, completing the trail is pretty much the honor system.

In my opinion no... I did crawler ridge and trail 11. Walked/spotted for jeepncrowd JTR with 3.5” lift on 37 with belly armor and he was hitting and scrapping on it.

I've got a stock Willys and am in Ohio. Just found out about the Badge of Honor trails...I feel I'm missing out...might have to convince the wife a little sooner about getting a lift and new wheels

Fishee you don't need new wheel, find some 'take off' 33's and go. The only thing that I would add is lower control arm skids! Other than that, go super slow across things-dragging is better than slamming.
Go out there and see what upgrades you really need. Then check to see what people are getting rid of here on the forum. You can get some great deals and you can learn by what people are not upgrading.
