    Default Ohio Backroads FALL COLOR TOUR! Oct-13-15

    HERE IT IS FOLKS!! DID you miss the SPRING RUN??? This time around we are going to be staying BOTH nights at AEP Recreational Lands. Plan is to basecamp and explore the areas around AEP and HOCKING HILLS region.

    October 13th 5pm to October 15th 5pm

    We will reuse the AEP-Hocking route for day 2..when people wanna head that way..I WILL get routes for Saturday along with folks who want to free explore the area...so MUCH to see and DO!!

    DETAILS!! INFO!!
    You NEED the AEP permit printed and filled out with you for FREE CAMPING
    AEP is also 30 min away from any amenities..the local shop I used closed...we WILL be traveling by MANY places to get firewood/food/snacks/fuel thru the entire trip..and I will be stopping to get firewood on the way.
    PETS and weird friends must be leashed. I learned the hard way years ago that not everyones pets are friendly to roaming dogs..lets keep everyone safe..
    KIDS/WIFES...Bring them!! This will be as family friendly as can be..however after 10:30 there are quiet hours at AEP...but as long as we are good neighbors all is good..
    ALCOHOL...AEP is DRY...NO DRINKING AND DRIVING PERIOD. *IF* you cant wait till camp...I can recommend some addiction counciling

    HOOK LAKE CAMPGROUND! it has a huge shelter house and every site is lake side!!
    They asked we haul our trash off site but the water will be on and the bathrooms are always open. The caretaker will have fishing poles for the kiddos if they want to try fishing!

    most groups have abandoned the VBBS in favor of facebook groups due to free hosting and tech support

    Hmm. This might be doable. We were actually planning on heading to Hocking Hills this summer but decided to go back to our usual Upper Peninsula. I will do a little more schedule checking tomorrow.

    First time posting,

    Coming out of Cincinnati, my wife and I were hooked on Expedition Overland's series on Youtube. Now our end goal is a 3rd gen Runner with a RTT. Currently however i have an older canyon 4wd. Would this be a good trip to dip my toe in the overlanding lifestyle? We are backcountry hikers who carry everything we need on our backs so this would be a new experience for us. I am really close to pulling the trigger on a 4runner but want to see if we enjoy it as much as we have built it up.

    Is the terrain particularly rough? This is my daily driver but has never let me down.
