I'm not familiar what their entire route though the area, but I live in Covington. Most of the area is stock friendly. If you have any questions hit me up! If I'm around, I might try to run out and meet up for a bit. Maybe do some riding if I've got my new t-case in by then.Greetings -
new Northern Virginian member to the site, also new to overlanding. I am planning a first trip along the Shaw-Douthat track y'all have posted on your website in a couple of weeks, barring any "don't do it" comments. The video was helpful, but I have questions about the parts unseen. The plan is to start on the north end and camp overnight at Douthat, before returning the same route.
A couple of questions --
Is this route appropriate for a Z71 Silverado?
Is this route safe-ish for a solo vehicle trip with minimal recovery gear (no winch, but jacks, cheap recovery boards, straps, etc.)?
Any concerns with mud/wet this time of year when we get rain every other day (or so)?
