I think you're the first one here from that area, or at least one that posts. I'm an hour or two down the road (Maysville) its my permanent home, though i'm stationed at Ft. bragg. Have some close family in Ashland, the Garner's!
Any good wheelin spots over your way? Right outside of Maysville theres Big Rock 4x4 park, but thats the only real place I know of minus my farm...
used to be a few just backwoods places, havent been on any of them for a long while dunno if they are still accessible. the biggest was natural bridge KY. Lots of jk rubicons around my area but none look like they get wheeled at all.
My uncle owns a cabin down in Red River Gorge I know theres some trails out there. I'm gonna call him up when I get home and see if I can get him out there with me to show me around that area, I'll report back if I run into any really good wheelin spots. How far are you guys from the gorge?
