Clay Valley Dirt Park, Oh to Harlan, KY - Part Two of Ultimate Adventure 2015!
While we joke that Ultimate Adventure 2015 is like summer camp for adults, the trip is not for the faint of heart. This is not the Mediocre Adventure or the Half Baked Adventure. This is a trip for a few hard core off-roaders from within the industry and a few select readers who expect tough trails and long days. The truth is participants know to expect anything from our whistle blowing leader, head camp counselor, Rick Péwé. While road days are all about getting to our next destination a side trip or two to a wheeling destination or ferry crossing are common occurrences. In the end, day two of UA 2015 will go down in history as one of the longest road days, not in overall mileage (although we did cover some ground) but rather a day that would last nearly 21 hours. After a 6:00 drivers meeting followed by a short drive to the muddy and tight trails at Clay Valley Dirt Park near Roseville, Ohio UA 2015’s to play summer campers drove a total of nearly 600 road miles and included a ferry crossing. The days trip meant driving late that night and into the early hours of day three before arriving at our next camp site in Harlan Kentucky. While this road day was long, the wheeling was awesome. We took plenty of photos from the road and trail including 4x4s making tight squeezes between trees, and maybe even a flop or two, followed by a trip on a ferry.
