I'm not sure all of that is all that is important to us anymore. We have our favorite Natl Forest and some back trails in NC we like to go down...
We seem to get there and make it back out all in one piece.. I am more interested in making sure I have enough battery power to make it through the one day/night run off the batteries and recharge my batteries the next morning during breakfast when allowed to run my generator.
My next upgrades is going to include Solar Panel on top of my POPUP. I can put three 120WATTS panels up there pretty easy. Two will have to be added after the roof has been raised. Too much weight for the raise motor it seems.
I guess out on the West side of the US you have all of these DISPERSED camping spots where you can do anything you want to do. It certainly isn't like that here on the East side of the US...
Seems like everyone here on the East side has all these rules we all must follow to make the multitude of campers happy.
When I was living in the Phoenix AZ area in the early 70s I have been known to take my brand new Jeep down the Salt River playing following the leader.. Apache trail was a favorite outing as well.
Too old for all of that now haha...
About the most difficult off-road condition I have ever done here locally is cross a rock bed creek in the George Washington up behind Harrisonburg VA on the VA/WVA wooded Mtn State line. This is near a placed called FLAGPOLE KNOB... I have winched my JEEP down a couple of rock ridge trails (Dictum Ridge comes to mind) there also but not with my trailer attached haha...
The trailers are all set up at the base camp and this is where we go drink a few cool ones before going to bed...
We do have a new trail deal going on here in along the East side of our small mtn range in VA and NC being a renewal of the 1940s gold rush days here. Lots of campers setting up at base camps and then going to all the local creeks in the zone panning for gold haha... I haven't done this yet but sounds like fun... Been watching GOLD RUSH on Discover Channel getting down all the key words to use...
