I have to first give credit to Mike for always planning these trips and following up with such imformative ride reports. He definitely knows how to explain the legs of the ride along with great pics. It was also great meeting Mark and his buddies we met up with on the trail in the middle of NO where, while they were following our tracks from last year.

My wife tagged along this year and definitely endured what most wives wouldn't, she was a real trooper (most of the time Camp Creek to Matewan/Gilbert 2010 - Page 2 722106) She was able to take alot of the pictures and some video. She should be on her own rzr next year though!

The Matewan Bed & Breakfast was our of my favroite parts of the ride. They heard us coming down the street and waved us into thier parking lot, while it was raining. They were quick to get us settled in and were very hospitable. I could have stayed there for days.

The whole trip was a blast. If it wasn't raining and we didn't get off to late starts, I think we could have done alot more exploring. There's always next time....... and I woudn't mind 4 days next time! We enjoyed the down time & shooting the crap, relaxing at the B&B and cabins as much as riding. This is definitely a trip to remember with good friends.

Til next time.... ride. RIDE ON

Garbage bag!!

It's 7 mil plastic. Its used under houses. It's pretty durable and didn't rip. After alot of rain, the plastic did seperate from the velcro. I made it in about 20 minutes. It's a rough draft and I noticed a few improvements to me made. It did serve it's purpose and kept most of the mud off of my gear. I'll definitely put some more time into it, using better material... once I have the time.

This is the Tug Fork River, the boundry line between WV and KY, the creek running in to the river is the WV and VA boundry.
Camp Creek to Matewan/Gilbert 2010 - Page 2 DSC_0042

All of us lookin' toward the Tug Fork and gettin' ready to hit the 13 miles of railroad tracks to Freeburn Ky.
Camp Creek to Matewan/Gilbert 2010 - Page 2 DSC_0044

Before hittin' the tracks, I checked my voicemails. The Matewan House had called to check our e.t.a.! I returned the call, Pat answered and encouraged us to get a move on, he had the fireplace stoked. We turned our thoughts to hot showers, local grub and warm beds.

Of course, just when you set you sights and get a bead on the target, (the Matewan House) the wind shifts and the target gets a whiff of ya'.
I gotta flat on the tracks.
Camp Creek to Matewan/Gilbert 2010 - Page 2 DSC_0045
We ended up puttin' 6 or 7 plugs in a small gash between the treads, no evidence of the gahser.

The "trail" ahead.

After fixin' the flat, about a 20 min. delay, we rode the tracks out to the bridge into Ky and pulled into Freeburn after dark. We got fuel and a cigar and were all obviously happy to be so close to the days end point, now 7 miles of asphalt away.

The Matewan House is a great destination for anyone riding the area or for folks just wanting to get away from the same ole' motel scene. Like Kenny said, Sandy was standing out front in the rain waivin' us in when came around the corner!
The fire was kickin', the rooms were just like grandmas', and the host couldn't have been better. Snacks everywhere and a massive breakfast in the mornin'.
Pat did share plenty of stories about the houses' previous life as a mortary and funeral home. We didn't see any ghosts though, too bad.
They also provide a locked parking area and wash bay! This is the next am after we hosed down the horses.

Maybe a Canvas Tarp , take it to a person that does boat Upolstry and have them cut to fit and use rope or Velco to attach . Either way I was noticing that cover and liked the idea also .....

Now this is the type of ride I would drive the over 1000 miles from Iowa to do. I have done simaler rides in Utah in the past but we tented every nite along the trail. I seriously think we are gona come out to WV next year and if anyone wants to show us around we are lookin for volonteres. We would be all over a ride like this.

Awsome RR. Mike it shows your experience writing ADV rider style. Love those stories. When I find it I'll send you the link of a RR my brother in law wrote. It is an awsome report of his ride on his V-Strom from Columbia, SC to Prudo Bay, AK. It is like 38 pages long.

When you set the date for a trip to WV, let me know, I'll make sure to be able to show you around for at least a couple of days. If not a week! I've got ya a free place to camp. I was in Utah in Sept., with the dualsport, I'd love to go back with RZR soon.

We had planned to follow last years route, but the lodging ptions in eastern Ky are slim so we made reservations at Millers cabins in Gilbert. We headed off to northeast out of Matewan hoping to find some good trails leading that way.

We tried Rutherford Branch, it looked promising, in typical WV fashion the residential street and asphalt faded into a atv trail. About 300 yards in there was a 20' dia. tree across the trail at head height, we had a chainsaw but Christy had the bright idea to hang on each others RZR to compress the shocks. We did, Kenny and I still barely made it. Mark, with his chopped top, rolled under unscathed and unassisted.
There's the tree but sadly no shot of Mark and Christy hangin' from the machines as we went under it.

We got the chance to show what we had just learned, after going another 100 yards the trail ended in a hair raising uturn on the rocky hillside for Mark and I. But the return trip under the tree had a twist, Kenny and I had to do it in reverse because of the grade. Again no pic. Next time though!

Thanks Bobby, we only rode about 5 miles in Ky this year, last year we did quite a few miles there but few were dirt or traill. That's part of the reason we decided to change the route after Matewan at the last minute.
If anyone knows of any trails or gravel in the northeast corner and down the eastern state line of KY, I'd really appreciate a tour.
