PostSubject: Places you have wheeled...   Mon Dec 05, 2011 11:26 pm

I was just reminiscing about places I have wheeled that I enjoyed and places that I would like to visit again or visit in the future. Realized I am fairly lucky to have been wheeling in as many places as I have. Here is my List starting locally and moving farther out...

NC:
Uwharrie
Tellico (RIP)
Callalantee (RIP)
Woodland Games (RIP)
The Flats
Devils Play Ground
Brown Mountain
Beech Mountain (RIP)
OBX
Richland Rd
SC:
The Gulhes
VA:
Potts Mtn
GWNF
WV:
Snowshoe
TN:
Coal Creek
Wheeling in the Country
Bell Rd
KY:
Turkey Bay / Land Between the Lakes
Daniel Boone National Forrest
Harlan
WA:
Naches Pass Trail
Snoqualmie Pass
Lonesome Lake
Reider Pit
Tahuya
Bon Jon Pass
Moon Rocks
Funny Rocks
OR:
Post Flats
Oregon Back Country Adventure Route Section 2 & 3

Thats all the places I can think of that I have been to and man do I want to explore more the more I think of all the different terrains and experiences I have had along the way.

So Where all have you guys been exploring off the beaten path?

Right, you were probably the last one to wheel at those places.

I only wish I could have been at some of the closing rides... When I moved to Seattle I had to read online about the final day of my favorite wheeling spots.

I miss Beech Mtn for snow runs on a yearly basis, Forrest Games for breaking a front CV, proceeding to break a rear axle shaft on a 8.8 on the way out. I miss Tellio for all the trails I was never able to run because of the trails I didnt get to run due to lack of experience and modification.

Man almost brings a tear

I have wheeled at these locations, but URE is by far the most difficult of these. Most of these are pretty mild & just beyond being fire service rds.

NC----URE, private land near Cherokee, Fort Fisher, NC State game lands in the Sand hills near Rockingham.

FL----Cape Canaveral National Seashore

MO----Mark Twain National Forest near Branson

AZ-----Mogollon Rim near Payson

Planned trip for 2012 Breckenridge CO, Utah, Sedona AZ, Death Valley & areas in that part of NV.

I consider myself a rookie when it comes to wheeling. Surprised myself when I started thinking of where all I have actually gone offroad.
