Wilson Creek was more of a glorified camping club and less Overlanding. I'm fresh out of ideas though. Someone else will have to step up to the plate.

The only trails I am eyeing right now are more to the west. The Georgia Traverse is calling out to me simply because the eastern start is close to where I am.
Thanks for planning the last few trips! I'd give suggestions, but I'm still new and don't really know any good places yet.

Musterground Mountain Rd should be open for business as of this Sunday (first day of Fall hunting season). So I'm going to get out there the following weekend (anyone is welcome to join me) to check it out and scope out what we have to work with as far as camping options on the trail.

I’d definitely like to know how that 1 looks. I’m ending a 7-week streak of running trails &/or camping every weekend. Unfortunately, I need to take care of some adulting this weekend. Probably good for me to recharge my batteries too.

Plus, I’ve been neglecting a broken front sway bar link & I probably need to do a full check to make sure all the bolts are still tight on the rest of the Wander Wagon.

We are debating. If we did we would have to camp offsite. Can’t afford what they are wanting for the “experience”.
I’d like to go as well, but will not be camping onsite for $190 for the weekend that’s for sure

No doubt. That on-site price is crazy. If you were staying Thursday to Monday, it's not terrible but I can't imagine many people are staying for 5 days.

FYI, there's a coupon code that was made available from Expedition Portal for 15% off that's good until the 15th - OX19E-OJ15

15% for even a one day ticket? I’m trying to find camping nearby and then just go in on Saturday

More pics of this monster RC truck please... lol :grin:
Wish I had them... that picture is actually the background on my desktop. I saw it on Reddit in r/battlewagon. I heard it is essentially an older Toyota pickup with a Subaru body on top. I'm okay with that. I'm all about that wagon life.

I watched a couple videos of the Georgia Traverse. Looks like its a good mix between easy pavement and technical parts. It'd be nice if we could spend a few days exploring part of it since there seems to be so much there.

I like that it can be sectioned off. If you haven't made it as far as originally planned you can just jump over to the highway and scoot.

Yeah! It's nifty, especially if there's a rough part that you can't do because of the weather or such. This should definitely be a trip in the future.
