Dirty Turtle off road

Im from NWIndiana Jeepers and we are planning a trip to dtor on the 24-26 th this month. So far there's 4 of us heading down. Its just over the Ohio river in Kentucky. 270 acres roughly. Looks like fun. Like to extend the invite to the jf community. Thanks Ryan

Hey just found you guys. I would like to catch up with you guys. The trip sounds cool, but I'll be gone on a bachelor party. Do you guys have any other trips planned? French Lick jamboree in October?
I saw you all meet at bass pro 3rd Fridays. What time?

Jeeps Going Wild is part of the JF community, so I guess we count. Personally I'm not up to traveling that far for 200 acres though, the Cliffs and the Badlands are closer, and bigger.

Wish I would have found this post sooner. I live about 45 minutes from DTOR. I would have met up with you for sure but maybe next time. How did you enjoy the trip?

Bigger is not always better. Dtor is actually closer to 350 acres now, and it's the best 350 you will find without traveling out west or paying out the rear for a jeep jamboree. There are several groups that travel form the east cost, Texas, Florida, and Cali every year for events at DTOR. It's not big, but it's well worth the drive. I hope you change your mind at some point and head that way. The worst that could happen is you disagree with me and don't go back, right. Happy jeeping to all.

I went in March. Was not impressed. It was just Ok. Maybe I need a guide to show me the cool stuff, because nothing I saw impressed me enough to drive 2 hours to go back, when I can drive 2 hours to the Badlands.

The interesting thing about the turtle is, the trails always change. Some of them stay the same such as the perimeter trail. Most get longer or harder as the year goes by. They also work hard to ad new trails frequently. If you went in march of 2012 I would encourage you to try it again in march of 2013. You will be surprised at how different it is.
