New to the game - Central Ohio

Hey guys, I recently bought myself a 98 Sahara and after 5 months in repair and upgrade hell, she's in tip top shape and ready for her first ride. It's sitting on a D44 with new 32" ATs, 3.73 gears, a 2.25" BB, and new shocks. I'm looking for anyone who wants to get together next weekend on 8/4, 8/5, or 8/6 to do some wheeling. I've got to be honest, I've never been wheeling before. I owned a 74 CJ5 for a year in highschool and joined a local Jeep club. We were off on their annual trip to the little 8 mile in WV but I broke down on the way down there. I rode along with another member, but I've never driven myself. This one's my daily driver so I'm not looking to do anything too crazy, just get out and have some fun. I'm ordering either a hitch or a new rear bumper today that ties to the frame and will be installing it on Friday 8/3 so that I'll have a rear recovery point. I live about 30 minutes east of Columbus and I don't have any place or know anyone to go wheeling with. If anyone would like to show a noob the ropes with a 60-90 minute drive, let me know. I'm heading out of town tomorrow morning until Thursday but I'll be checking the post through out the week.

Haven't been there myself, but I understand there is a park near Cambridge (Gasline Park, I believe) that sounds like what you're looking for. Run a search and see what you think.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

we run some of the township roads around tar hollow. there's rocks/mud and some hill climbs, nothing hard core.
