I have a GPS unit as well. Unfortunately a GPS unit won't tell you what roads are legal for OHVs. Once you get off the grid, GPS is really only good for coordinate based tracking. The two in conjunction are awesome though

And it's funny you mention that, should I start a thread? We're planning (girlfriend and I) to head out to King's Canyon/Hume Lake area for the 9th-11th for camping/wheeling. Perhaps I'll start a thread and see how much interest it garners :P

Link to thread to come shortly.

Great area, beautiful scenery. I'm always up in the area, check out the Giant Sequoias. Hume Lake always has good fishing.

Total price on the Mendocino National Forest set will be $46 for anyone in the state of CA, shipped!
That sounds great, let me know where to send payment. My wife and I want to explore and these maps will be perfect.

Some times it better if you are "temporarily disorientated" you find cool places that you otherwise would not have.

DUSY ERSHIM TRAIL- this is what I found out. The trail is approx. 30 miles, so your looking at 3 full days of wheeling. The trail is between Courtright Lake and Kaiser Mtn. which is east of Fresno. At least 33" tires and one locker recommended. It is very beautiful scenery and plenty of lakes along the trail to set up camp and fish. There have been jeepers with 32's and no lockers able to make it. The trail doesn't open till middle of August. I was thinking August 31 to Sept. 2. I believe that's Labor Day weekend. Figure most ppl have a 3 day weekend.

I could be down for that. A buddy was just telling me about wheeling around Courtright Lake so that would be quite splendid, old chap!

But seriously, I'm down.

There are other trails around that area that aren't as long, from day trips to overnight trips. Look on YouTube for Coyote Lake, Bald Mtn, Red Lake, Strawberry Lake, Swamp Lake. Most are moderate to difficult. Coyote and Swamp are equal to maybe even more difficult the Slick Rock. All offer up great trout fishing too.

Sounds like fun! If nothing major comes up on Labor Day, I'll go for sure.

Could you ship to 95437? I used to go out into some of that country years ago with my dad and grandpa hunting.

Anybody know anything about boar hunting in the national forest? Something the wife and I are interested in doing.

Let me know if you can do the maps for me.

Thanks
I don't know of any good pig hunting areas in the National Forest. Most all good pig hunting areas are on private land.

In case you didn't hear about it, Metal Cloak is putting on a "Skillz Day" event at Prairie City this weekend. I'll be up there, anyone else going? I started a thread here http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f317/...-city-1539491/ just now. I know it's kinda last minute, but I'm just curious if anyone else is going and I haven't seen it posted on any of the forums that I visit. Seems like a pretty good deal, pay the $5 to the State at the entrance and the whole thing including food is free.
