Where are you heading?

I heard some trails are closed due to fire concerns.

Fire ban on CUmberland Ranger District

Wheeling the Gorge! Had a blast! Also had to fix a steering linkage my buddies CJ while on a hill in the trails! Then broke the clutch bracket after we got it out to smooth ground.. Rough Country made the trails so much easier in my YJ!! Lots of flex and no probs the whole time!... Well besides teeter- tottering on 3 wheels..on a hill... Over a huge rock... Beside a huge drop off... :/

Glad you had a good trip. I saw that 77 was closed from Nada Tunnel and that a fire was building in part of the area.

Drop me a note when you are heading back to the area. Looks like you had fun.

I used to go to RRG every month or so when I hiked or rappelled back in the late 70s-80s but got out of the habit. Now that I am settled back in Kentucky it is time to start again.

I didn't even know you could wheel at Red River I've hiked there but I also didn't have a jeep then. If someone wanted to make a Weekend out of it there are some nice cabins with great rates in the geological area I think its called Red River Gorgeous. We stayed there last fall I think with the Military discount it was like 80 bucks a night for two bedrooms and a futon.

No prob! Some spots would eat a stock jeep tho almost all we went to that day.. Lots of bottoming out,deep mud, and two or more foot tall rocks up steep hills.. More than i ever anticipated! At least a 2" lift would be needed.. Ill holler if we go to richmond too tho, a lil place called jigwater is stock freindly!

Loved the pics!

Do you have any more info, directions, link?

I may be interested in taking ol' blue down there. He's totally stock though except for Duratracs, and I'm a wheelin' newbie, so I'd need something fairly easy to start.

PM Moscoeb. He lives down there and can do better with road names and such. Check back in the Lexington/richmond thread as we go out wheeling a lot (we're firemen so we have a lot of days off). I am hoping we can get something more organized where people can plan it, and have a good turnout when we do go.

I'll talk to the boss, we are planning a bonfire later that evening. We could probably go for few hours this coming Sunday.
