I'm not too familiar with anything around Ashland, but I know the area out of Shady Cove (Elk Creek and West Fork) fairly well. Most of what you'll find out there is mud. Mud and snow, depending on the time of year. Not a whole lot of rock crawling areas, at least none that I've seen. There are some decent hills of course, but mainly just a whole lot of muddy roads and pits to play in. Nothing too challenging, really.

Just thought I'd throw this out there, when I got my deer back from the taxidermist, I decided to have a little fun. I stuck him in my passenger seat like so
(this is right before I left for Ashland).
Then I headed up to Ashland (I live in Sams Valley, near Gold Hill). I made two or three circuits down the main street of town, counting all the times I got honked at, flipped off, or yelled at. keep in mind, this was early spring on a sunny day, so downtown was absolutely packed. I quit counting at 20 or so on the first run. Didn't even count the second pass. That was the most fun I'd had in a long time, lol.

It was an experience, I'll tell you that much. I'm a pretty likeable guy most of the time, and I'm not used to having a lot of people angry at me. So driving into town and becoming unanimously hated by the entire population at once was... interesting, lol. Getting the deer into that position was quite a pain. At first we tried to set him on the seat, but he was way too tall for that. I ended up flipping the seat forward, sticking him behind the center console, and then when I flipped the seat back it kinda help him in place. The icing on the cake was that I was all decked out in camo from a morning of turkey hunting, and I know half the ashlanders who saw me thought I killed that thing that morning

I could only imagine! Haha, yes, Ashlanders tend to be very opposed to that sort of thing.

Ah, gotcha. As much as I rag on Ashland, I like it a lot. I don't particularly fit in down in the town, but I would love to live in the foothills around it. Absolutely beautiful place.

Well, it isn't nicknamed Methford for nothing, lol. We have our fair share of freaks and goofballs, but overall it ain't too bad. I mostly love the land. I live between the Table Rocks, and it's absolutely beautiful. This is the south Table Rock, from our from patio. I have some pretty awesome pictures from there actually.
