If you want to wheel, the uwharrie is the closest place to us. Croatan is illegal, and will net you a $150 ticket. That was two years ago when I helped pull my friend out, I'm sure it's gone up by now. You can go drive on the outer banks, take your fishing rods and relax.
Other than that, it's going to take a bit of driving. There is a place south of wilmington a little bit, mostly mud trails, but a small rock garden. I've gone up to Va a couple times on 72's and had a great time in the GWNF. About 8 hours to get there, but well worth it.
Check out NC4x4.com to find out all the other legal areas around us. Yes, Havelock is a shit hole, no need to throw a fit about it. Just fill up the gas tank and leave the local area.
I've been thinking of organizing a base off road club, if youre interested, pm me. Anyone in your unit into off roading? Doesn't matter the vehicle, it will be open to all. With the club, I want to set up a web site for information and discussion, plus do a monthly meeting. Might just be dinner at bdubs or something, but preferably try and plan a trip for at least every other month. Get out there, wheel, camp, drink, and meet others on the base who share our hobby.
Ive got orders to LeJeune early 2013. i was hoping the off road situation was better then FL. there is a few trails here, but mostly mudd and water, nothing technical or overly challenging. i hate playing in the mudd so thats a no go for me.
im from GA and used to challenging and technical forest roads, washouts, hill climbs etc. Just a pain in the ass the little bit of places i find here i have to take a looooooong drive. i was hoping NC was better
