The BIG trip 2020

Post by Duke Winch » Sat Dec 07, 2019 6:01 pm

Looking into the idea of going to the Black Hills in SD in June. The club went there several years back. Besides wheeling there is a lot of sight seeing to be done in the area, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood, Sturgis, Custer's Last stand etc. (Spoiler alert! He lost).

Jane Peters is exploring for a place to stay, and I'm going to ping the Black Hills 4 Wheelers who help guide us about last time and see if the trails are still open to the public, etc.

Post up your own thoughts here about this idea or any other alternative locations for the Big trip.

Matt Adams sent me a copy of the "Top Secret" cross reference of Rock Crawling Trails to Forest Service Trail numbers and coordinates we promised not to publish on the Web from a club in the area the last time we where there.

Apparently it's no long top secret as it's posted on their website

Here is the link to the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) ... https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/blackhil ... EPRD533421

The Black Hills offers over 3,600 miles of motorized travel on the forest, including over 700 miles of system trails. For further information, contact a local Forest Service Office. Also check out the OHV Riding & Camping webpage.

I think my folks are going to join us again. So, two couples. Joy, Shannon, Lyle and Karon. If not enough room for us, we can find our own place.

We are interested, two of us.
We need to narrow the date down so we can see if we can get it off or not.
I did start and move my Jeep yesterday!

Kim and I are interested but cannot commit yet to any particular dates. Kim's son is joining the US Army at the end of January. Shortly after that we hope to get the dates of his basic training graduation and the AIT after that, which is likely to be in June, we think.

Sorry guys we are not able to go. I could not get vacation days for that week. Some one else already has them.
