Negative Ghost Rider...I just had the event to deal with and also switched to riding my motorcycle a good bit. The jeepster enjoys the occasional day or two off.

Thanks Grn..CJ YJ combo...Cherokee chassis will give you some heart ache...

The guy that I was supposed to contact about this trip never got back to me. Supposedly he was going to announce at a town meeting but I guess he said we are good to go anyway since we arent selling anything. I didnt really understand what he was trying to say but it sounded like it wasnt a big deal. Not that I would have taken no for an answer anyway

Yeah, he explained that since we are not selling anything or chargeing for the trail ride that it becomes much less of an ordeal that we go. Basically, since we are pretty much just gonna meet up and run trails together, we dont have to worry about them makeing it an "official" event. Were just a bunch of friends running the trails.

So i decided to start getting ready for this trip. I bought a Smittybilt XR8 Winch, mounting plate, and Chromoloy Axles for the rear this week. Now I have to save for the gas to get there and back. But really looking forward to the trip, have heard nothing but good things about Harlan.

Do we have a camping spot picked out yet...I cannot remember if we picked one. From what I understand there are two camp grounds near the trails, I guess we need to pick one.

So is it only going to be the 3 of us (Cherokee, GRN, and Tazmann)??

Nice Video!!!

Sweet man, glad to hear your gonna go prepared. Thats a great winch from what I have heard. As for camping, there are two seperate trail heads in two different towns from what I understand. At each trail head there is parking and camping areas. However its $5 a night at one trail head and its free at the other. Needless to say, Im betting we will meet at the one that offers free camping. I will figure out which it is and let you guys know asap. It better not just be us 3, lol. I have heard a lot of other guys saying they were comming so Im sure there will be others. That video is on the Black Mountain website so I thought Id throw it up here so everyone can see the terrain. Scrap Daddy will be done by the trip so thats my preperation but Im still gonna bring my TJ too. Although, thats not going to change much for the trip.

Ok, its the parking that they charge ya the $5 for, not camping. The free parking is at the Southern trail head in Evarts, KY. Its called the Baileys Creek trail head:

Thats where I suggest we meet up and hit the trail from. Sound good?

Works for me as well.

So Cherokee will be providing the shower facilities?

I think we need to start PM some of the folks that said they would be there and make sure they are watching this tread.

Just read this on the site...
All Non Refundable reservations must be made in advance either by money order or certified check in the amount of, $20.00 per RV site. Payable to City of Evarts

Yea, we should all pm them so they really get the idea! Yea, its $20 for an RV site but the primitive camping is whats free I believe. Since I dont really give a crap thats what Im doing
