    Hidden Hills of West Virginia

    Post by Rednick on Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:41 am

    This trip was taken a week ago by myself and two friends. I initially found this spot on a motorcycle trip. It's located about 35 miles East of Mingo. We hunted coyote and small game with no luck, so we settled for MREs, eggs, and summer sausages. It was a great trip with awesome offroad on the way up the mountain. I'll upload those images later when I get home to my gopro. This was the night of the "supermoon" and the moon rose to the sky around 15:45 from our vantage point. Very cool. Temps dropped down to about 10*F on the mountain overnight. Wasn't too cold even though my friend's tent was missing multiple important pieces.... As you can see from the picture, we made it work.Typically I'm either solo or with my fiance, so I don't have to "teach" anyone how to camp, but this was great for everyone. Protection didn't leave my side as the last time I was in this area I came across 3 wild boar who did not look friendly...

    Here's a quick clip:  

    I'd like to add, as always, camp was combed when we left, the "Beer tree" was dismantled, and the fire pit was restored to natural as best as possible.

    What were you using in hopes of eliminating those pesky coyotes?

    Nice camping by the way. "Hey, this looks like a good spot!" Laughing
