I'd be interested in going to Centralia and meeting some ppl from the forum. I never knew there were many trails down there. From maps and exploring around I've only ever found a few trails, and I've heard most of them are for quads.
As far as camping i dont know, im going to guess not. trail wise, im going to guess easy, require 4x4 at most, nothing to extreme. I am planning to go saturday feb 13. Depending on weather, sounds like were about to get slammed, but as of now I am still expecting to go on that date.

How I ronic, the day before the trip, I opened my yahoo this morning at work, and this article was on my homepage, I had to send you guys the link, it giveds a nice historical background of the town....
^^ I like how you prefaced that by saying "not to sound like a father" but that is very fatherly advice. I knew of the fire and whatnot, trust me the last thing I want is my Jeep at the bottom of a mine. Thanks for all the good info, I'll google earth the area again and pin point the locations you mentioned. Sounds like you know your stuff. I have noticed that there are plenty of active mines still in the area. I'll be sure to post some pics from the trip. Thanks again nuttier.
LOL, thats funny, I am gettin older now, and LOL have one lil guy who is 6, so yeah the fatherly instincts kinda kick in, but yeah the area is kinda sketchy, and just blazing around aimlessly could get you in some bad stuff quick.. LOL I could tell you all kinds of horror stories from the area of ppl being killed, offroading throughout the years in the area.. yeah there really are a lot of active mines still in the area, and they do have a lot of troubles with ppl vandalizing the equipment.. So try to stay clear of those areas for sure... Hey are you guys still going if we get this blizzard?,... I may just go to Maryland and travel backroads with 18-24 inches of snow in the northern section, and drifting being higher, this may be fun...
State officials say the fire continues to burn uncontrolled and could for hundreds of years, until it runs out of fuel. One of their biggest concerns is the danger to tourists who often cluster around steam vents on unstable ground.
