Wheeling for the fun of it or another purpose?

I could not see where to put this so I thought I'd ask-I have looked through all the picture threads and see that everyone is having a ton of funon the trails and getting stuck and whatnot. I just was curious, do you all have a destination in mind when wheeling, or do you just turn around and drive back after a certain amount of time?

I was thinking that planning a camping trip along with Wheeling would be the best way to go-was just wondering if thats how most clubs and individuals do it.

Having a pay-off at the end (a lake, a view, a camp) is a bonus but most of the time it's about the journey for me.

Our club does a few weekend camping/wheeling trips in the year as well as some trips to Jeep Jamboree like events. Most of the trails we still have have an in point and an out point with some smaller dead ends coming off. We are also helping the government find and develope new sustainable trails as well as build bridges to minimize the effect of major water crossings, all which require offroading to get there and back.

i like exploring stuff i've never seen before.

the exedition is why i go.

wheeling is fun tho. i don't base how much fun i have on how much body damage i obtain.

The ONLY way to wheel is when you have a destination, for me its always wheeling/camping. For example, the rubicon is a 2 or 3 day trail depending on how you pace yourself. It's awesome because your actually trying to get somewhere, and adding camping into it is awesome.

Barrett lake is a dead end trail, but it ends at Barrett lake which was some AWESOME camping. A day to get in, a day or two at the lake and a day to get out. YES.

I like camping and just pushing my jeep to the limit. everytime I go out I get a little more aggressive.

and its away for me and my girl to get out.

see I like the wheeling to a camping spot, because it can involve risk and is ALWAYS more challenging. Like you get to a hard obstacle, and you HAVE to get through otherwise you're not getting to the camp site. And besides, who could miss out on scenery like this?

(Barrett Lake, not even great pics)
