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.
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.
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 do it for the fun of it, i love goin out on trails and getting away u could say. sometimes i do trails that i know well and where im going to end up, others i have no idea and its an adventure. always a good time even when something bad happens, make the best of it

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?
