South Carolina?

Just found out I might be sent to South Carolina for a year on special assignment (for work) and Im wondering if I should bring my junk with me. So whats the wheelin like? I think I will be near Charleston but not 100% sure. If I brought my junk, I would be buying a trailer when Im there so I would be able to get to wherever the rocks are....

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Bill

There really isn't much in SC, but there is a good bit that is a short tow away. Harlan Ky, River Rock GA, Morris Mountain AL, Grey Rock AL, Windrock TN, and many others. Sure it could take 4-10 hours but it is great wheeling and there are quite a few of us around that go.

Cool, I think I will have my rig trucked there and just buy a new tow rig and trailer. I would like to hook up with some groups that make these roadtrips so I dont end up wheelin alone....lol.

I should know more in a week as to if and when I will be there.

Thanks for the info.

Bill

Can't help you on the tilt bed, but here is a link to the Gulches. Its about an hour from where I live and a couple hour drive from the MB area.

You have flat land beaches on one side of SC and mountains on the other.

Saw some youtube video of Telico....cool stuff. So how long of a drive from Charleston is that? Is it worth the drive? Anything closer worth checking out?

Thanks again for the replies. Ive been checking into trucking my rig down and want to make sure I get to go wheel as much as I can to justify the cost.

Tellico is temporarily closed. Gulches and River Rock are nice 2 day places. Harlan is our new premier wheeling destination. Several other spots available in Tennessee and Alabama.

I understand there isnt anything in Charleston, but I do plan on making as many road trips as possible. River Rock and Gultch's are on my list of many places to go. However, if you prefer to come over, stand around my rig and talk shit about it, that will work too.
