Finally after five years of wheeling, I made it to Gore, Virginia to take my Jeep off-roading. I've heard about the place many times, but never found my way there for several reasons.
I always heard they wheeled hard and breakage was not an issue. I also heard the trails were mainly for big rock crawlers. Now I can put those fears to rest. The Cove Campground outside of Gore, Virginia is a great place to wheel. Trails of all levels from one to ten.
The scenery is beautiful and the
trails are amazing and super fun.
I arrived Friday and set up camp. I was spending the weekend with Off Camber Crawlers during a Big Dogs Off Road event. Off Camber Crawlers, OCC, are a family off road group I am trying to become a member with.
Like all the other Jeepers I come across
OCC is awesome and so welcoming.
I wheeled the level 5 trails just to get my feet wet to see what the trails were like. There were some intense moments on some difficult obstacles, but I powered through. I think I would be able to wheel 6's and 7's.
I also took my Jeep on it's first night wheeling trip and tested out my Lux Lighting Systems Lights.
I have posted several videos of the trails I wheeled, however like any Jeeper knows the video doesn't do the trail justice. The level of difficulty never gets an accurate account on the video.
I plan on heading to The Cove Campground again, hopefully in a couple of weeks.
