    Only about 100 times...

    It's very mild.

    As @PyritePirateBill mentioned, there is great brook trout fishing.

    Just bought this light bar from uncle Bezos https://www.amazon.com/Nilight-41in...ingle+row+led+light+bar&qid=1599600431&sr=8-5

    However, I'm running into the VA issue of trying to find a light cover to fit it. Seems most things on the market a designed for duel row LEDs, not signal. Really not looking for the best cover, just something that allows me to meet the requirements of: "The covers shall be a type that would be installed as original equipment and not tape, paper bags, aluminum foil or similar materials.":rolleyes:

    @Rome604 knows the specifics but I believe that aux lights with clear lenses no longer need covers.

    Trail is really easy. There is a public campground in the back and 2wd cars are frequently there. There are some really nice Free primitive camp and fishing spots along the trail. I highly recommend it.

    If it's a clear lens, opposed to an amber lens, AND above the height of your headlights then you're good. It doesn't need a cover.

    You worded that in the most confusing way. Am I understanding this correctly?

    Clear + below headlight = no bueno
    Amber + below headlight = no bueno
    Amber + above headlight = no bueno

    Clear + above headlight = bueno

    The reasoning is that if it's amber you need to be an authorized vehicle (ie tow truck, snow plow). If it's clear and below the height of the headlights then it's a "fog light" and needs to be SAE or have a cover.

    If it's clear and above the headlights then it's ornamental. (It can't function during the inspection so pull your fuse).

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    If you end up catching flak at inspection time, let me know. I'd have to look, but I found a guy who makes rubber/suction cup covers for cheap. I have one for my bumper bar and it's perfect.

    Supposed to be good trout fishing but I can't confirm since I don't fresh water fish. Several miles of trails and the WMA is in 2 large tracks. I have only been up the way you described near Graves @caffeinated_medic has been through some of the other areas. I have been looking for a good map of the area as I would like to explore it all and do some camping up there it's only a half hour from me
