Anyone wanna go Winter Campin with Zuks?
« on: December 09, 2008, 09:10:38 AM »
Hey guys.. got a silly question... Does anyone here enjoy camping in the cold, frigide, January or Febuary air of Southern KY? It can be unbearably cold for some, but it's my favorite time to camp and wheel. I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in a Zuk camping trip? I own about 180 acres and a nice camp site on top of a ridge. The trails are VERY simple. mostly just ridge roads and old logging roads running along the ridges. Got a couple of good hill climbs and one nice long downhill with a v-notch. A shallow flat rock creek with some nice holes runs the length of the property. A stock 4wd tracker could do 90% of the trails, but it's still a good time.


If there is any interest I will be cutting a few new trails that my Tracker PROBABLY wouldn't be able to climb out of, but something with some lockers and such would have fun. I'm also building a small cabin on the camp site right now that would help with the cold.


All of my friends are panzies and scared of the cold, and NO ONE here has anything to wheel (bunch of *eeps around, but NONE of them actually go offraod   ???  .)


It is located about 8 miles outside of this town:

I just enjoy wheeling all day and then sitting around a warm campfire in the cold air, downing some tasty beverages    ;)   and telling stories (lies  :P  haha.  )


I know this is a little off the wall, but if there is any interest, let me know. This will be posted on Zuwharrie and ZukiKrawlers, too.

Bandit,
Maybe we can set up something after the new year. I will be 'camped out' for a few weeks after my cross country to get the new Kick, but as long as it's not raining and 33, I'm good down to the single digets (cold=good, wet=OK, cold and wet= home on the couch)

Just message me when you think you might wanna come for a trip.


I'm not sure If I'm very close to Natural Bridge or not. It can't be that far away. If you know the town it's in or near, post it up and I'll mapquest it to see how far away it is

I just looked up Natural Bridge SP. It's in Daniel Boone SP. It's north of London, KY. I'd say about 3-3.5 hours from where I'm at.

That's cool. I could not remember. It has been years since we would go up there and wheel. I will give you a shout after I get back and do some camping.

Hmm....maybe I'll drive my Tracker down there from PA.   :-\   

Would love some sweet winter wheeling/camping.

Sounds like a plan. Just as long as it's not on Jan. 30th or 31st. I'm going to the AC/DC concert in Memphis   >:D

Nope, never seen 'em. I always said that if they did another tour, "I AM GOING", so I stuck to my word. Cant wait!


By the way. I cut the first part of a new trail yesterday. Hopefully I'll have some challenging stuff to go along with the easy drive through trails if anyone decideds to come for a visit.
