    Awesome pics and a great road trip @CincyCuda68.

    Since you are from Ohio,which is almost as far from there as my home state of PA, how did you figure where you could drive offroad, or did you just show up and drive where you seen a path?

    Very interested in your planning of the trip, or if you just point the truck and go.

    Here in PA I used to be able to hit the woods just like that. But, private land is being posted more and more each day.

    My son saw this thread and @22hemi13 adventures with his long bed, and he asked when we could do that again.

    Literally the last remaining path, that we just did geocaching on last year...the very end is now posted.

    I really want to go see Wyoming and while we are out there...looks like Arizona too.

    I just pointed the truck west and drove. My GF wanted to see Yellowstone and I wanted to see Moab so we just headed west. When we arrived in Moab I just asked around, told people it was my first time and I have a full size truck (tons of jeeps and side by sides out there) quite a few suggested the trails in Arches National park since one is probably a 2 difficulty on a scale of 1-10 and the other is about a 4 (what locals told me) so I did the 2 first then hit the more rugged one.
    We went to Yellowstone next (blah blah, holes in the ground that shoot water). We left there and headed to Cody Wyoming and figured let’s see if there are any Ghost towns, we again asked around to the locals and they suggested Kirwin, a gold mining town that was hit with an avalanche in the ‘30’s. So we headed there the next morning. To my surprise the last 12 miles were the remains of a gravel road but was real similar to the easy Moab trail but waaaayy longer and had a cool ghost town at the end. We had no idea that we were going to be passing edge of mountain unpaved unkept roads with boulders and streams to cross. It was a really cool place.
    We drove from Cody to SpearFish South Dakota this evening, going to hit Mount Rushmore tomorrow and then start the drive back.

    There are tons of off road places in Utah and Wyoming. Hell there are probably 50 or more of all levels just in Moab. I would highly recommend the trip out there, you will have a blast. Wish I wouldn’t have waited until I was 48 to try it lol.

    When I get back I’m going to edit the dash cam footage and post it up on YouTube. I’ll link it here when I get it up there.

    **edit
    I forgot to mention we did this whole trip in a week.
    Left Sunday morning, hit Moab Monday afternoon. Played in Moab Tuesday until about 5 then drove to Yellowstone. Hit Yellowstone Wednesday until around 5 and went to Cody. Hit the Ghost town today and headed to South Dakota around 6pm. We will have all day tomorrow in South Dakota to do whatever and then Saturday and Sunday drive back to Ohio.
