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.

We stayed there last fall I think with the Military discount it was like 80 bucks a night for two bedrooms and a futon.
We were talkin bout that yesterday actually! Good rates there.. Just not sure of the vehical trails by there. Thanks!

McBear 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.

benaldridgejr 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... :/
10-23-2010 05:46 PM
benaldridgejr Looks like were good! One of the guys lives by where we are goin and said its open! Yay!
10-23-2010 05:10 PM
benaldridgejr Uh oh.. Thanks McBear. Ill check and see bout where, you may have saved us alot of time!
