Since there seems to be growing interest in exploration of the state just north of us, examples:

We also passed through there during last years Outlaws Run to Montana:http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=16507

I came up with this idea in hopes of getting more people up there to explore the great state of Wyming. It's a loose idea as of right now. But the basic trip would be to explore as much o f Wyoming as possible in a givin time, on dirt and using our Toyotas. A simaler concept would be Dave Connors Utah Cruiser Expedition. Last trip, they coverd 1400 miles in 4 days.

I have put a loose list together as to what I think are some of the best parts of Wyoming:

Browns Park-One of many Outlaw Hideouts
Killpecker Sand Dunes
Red Desert Country
Atlantic City, South Pass and Miners Delight
Oregan and Honeycomb Butte Country
Wind River Range
Morrison Jeep Trail- Challenging trail due to Switchbacks. Plus, it's where they put the trublesome Grizzly's
BigHorn Mountains- Including Hole in the Wall Country. I've read reports that the country can be as "Green as Ireland". Having been to Ireland, I need to investigate more.

I'm also including Sundance, Wyoming, since it has a good historical signifcance for the Wild Bunch.


Figure if we start planning now, we should have a good ajenda put together come next years wheeling season.

Perry, I just got a book you might like to borrow. It was Kim's dad's and he was big fan of Wyoming. It's called, "Wyoming - A Guide to Historic Sites". It was published by the Wyoming Recreation Commision in 1966. It's loaded with a lot of great history and photos. Definitely worth a look if you're planning another trip. I had a blast last time, hope I can make it up there again someday.

:cheers:

The area from Lander to the NW, in and around the Bridger NF and the Bighorns would be super fun to explore.

Map reading thus far has the route doing a North-NW then west-ish to east and a detoure a bit further east then back south west and west route (wow, thats confusing). Near Jacksonhole, the Green Begins. Looking to start the trip at the Gates of Ladore;):cool:.

:cool: :perry: Good timing!

Most everything should be open by then!
