    Anyone from Western KY or around. I also have gone to Turkey Bay several times. It is a great ride. I have also been to Black Mt. in Eastern KY. It is way advanced and great scenery for the women. I have never been to Ride Royal Blue but heard it was great also. Would love to hear some stories/see pics of Kentucky experiences.

    No Kentucky boys on here. That is strange. I have seen a lot of nice Tacomas running around here.

    From Henderson, eh? I'm from Indiana, about 40 minutes north of Evansville. You might want to check out Interlake sometime, it's in Lynnville, Indiana. Also, you could check out ttora.com since there is an active group of us down here.

    Hey thanks man. I have been to Lynnville about 10 years ago on an ATV. It was pretty good. I have a bunch of buddies that ride in the Toys for Tots ride around Thanksgiving or first of Dec. I will join them next year. You ever rode in that event?

    Yeah, I was at the 09 Toys for Tots, but had to work this year. You might have seen my truck running around the Tri-State, it's an 09 white regular cab 4x4, lifted, 33" Km2's on steelies, black toolbox and tint.

    Do you have a build on here? I will be updating mine this weekend. I am having the RCD lift installed tomorrow and 33" duratrac with 17x8 Ion 136. Should look good.

    Not sure how far it is for you but I got friends up here in MI that go to here a few times a year.

    A good friend of mine that goes has been bugging me to go. He said all the hardcore stuff has bypasses. Weather I make it there is another thing. I am not a huge ORP guy. I would rather trailride and see the sites at say Daniel Boone Forest or something.

    I've got a ton of family in the Hopkinsville area so I normally make it up that way a few times a year. I want to go to Turkey Bay sometime when I'm up there but I don't know anyone else that has a truck for offroading up that way.

    I have been to Black Mountain. Actually just went in August. It was great. It has great trails that are scenic that go by all the hardcore offroading so you can watch everyone. It also has miles of trails so you can just get lost and see some awesome views. My wife loved. I have a year membership so we will definetly go back. That cabins are also awesome.

    I would be interested in tagging along, but may not be able to keep up. I will be glad to give it my best shot though. I haven't done more than fire roads above 8000ft in the rockies.

    I am from Princeton, KY but live and work in Nicholasville, KY now. My folks still live in WKY so I come down several times a year, mainly in the summer for the lake. I just got a 03' Tacoma 4wd and put mud terrians on, however I am a complete novice when it comes to off-road. I have been wanting to go, but dont know where to start and I dont want to get into anything over my head.

    I have been to Ride Royal Blue. I took my quad. There were some great trails but most of the trails were just gravel paths so no real skill was required. They did have great views as you climb the mountains. Have you been?
