    Uwharrie National Forest Camping

    I am interested in moving in a few years. I had Ashville, NC on my list and Tuscon. After hearing how crowded it is in the national forests in NC it makes me rethink that as a destination. YOu mention big bend ont being crowded, was it very remote and secluded out in the Tuscon area? Being able...

    Maps

    I like Gaia gps. it is a good mapping app but it will cost you. I also like this: Forest Service Visitor Map it is a free site put out by the national forest service, unfortunately it is only good for forest service lands.

    Theory vs reality

    When people ask about what is needed for offroading and camping I always recommend the bare minimum. Then take it out in a simple area and try it out to see what works best for them and what they need to add. Texas is full of mall crawlers. They are usually lifted 2wd vehicles with mud tires...

    Oklahoma overlanders where ya at?

    I am so sick of the rain too. We have that black clay and when it gets wet it stays wet and sticky for a long time. Our dirt has only dried up 3 times since last September. I am also tired of people saying we need the rain. Good news is it looks like the rain will stop before memorial day...

    Ouachita and Ozark National Forest

    Breifly to the Mena area, but that trip got cut short by a massive rain storm. I ran part of the K-Trail in the ouachitas and I have been to the part of the ouachitas around Broken Bow. Everytime I have been there I have seen a ton of trails to run that I didn't have time to do. When I was in...

    Texas ohv program sticker

    In the past I have bought them at an OHV park and at a powersports dealer. I have never bought one online. I wish Texas would have more places to offroad. I don't plan on buying another I do all my offroading out of state now. Specifically Oklahoma and Arkansas like you mentioned.

    Camping gear list...

    My thoughts exactly. When I started getting back into camping I just bought the bare minimum. Then after a couple trips I was able to get an idea on what I needed to add and remove from my camping gear. After searching online i was also able to get a cooler for my camping setup that was barely...

    Want to test the waters....

    I didn’t need a winch when i was there. I sure there are places that might require a winch. My 4runner has a short wheelbase and I almost high centered it. If you have a long wheelbase you may run into an issue like that. Just make sure to walk a trail if it looks difficult to make sure it is...
