Ohio Fall Colors – Oct 17th, 2020

A group of Ohio flat fenders are getting together on the Saturday of October 17th, 2020 to drive the unmaintained roads in the area between Tar Hollow State Forest and Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio.  This is our forth year and some of us are making this a spouse outing this year (like last year).

We currently have 3 to 8 flat fenders (yes we would like to keep this as a flat fender event).  We will meet around 9:30 and ride for about 5 or 6 hours.

These are county roads that are not maintained.  Some are just creeks others are old wagon roads that run property lines up into the hills. 

Vehicles attending must be licensed and insured because these are state roads.  Valid driver’s license for all those who will be driving.  Liability resides with the driver on these roads.  (I expect we will be doing social distancing to comply with whatever is going on this fall)

 _________________________

The plan is to meet at old maintenance facility on Clark Hollow Rd (which is also known as Town Hwy 2) around 9:30am.    Get unloaded and be rolling by 10:00.  The old maintenance facility is about .5 miles up Clark Hollow Rd on the left side (South East).  If you go under the high tension power lines on Clark Hollow Rd you have gone too far.

I would suggest anyone attending to look at Google Maps link to find the intersection of SR 327 and Clark Hollow Rd. on the South East side of Tar Hollow State Park (Laurelville, Ohio 43135).   

Cell phone service is almost nonexistent, and the maintenance facility does not have a known address.   The closest address that I can find online for Pike Run Cemetery / Church is (take SR327 north of SR671 to south of main entrance of Tar Hollow State Park. Cemetery is on west side of SR327. There is an older cemetery across the road on the east side of 327.) which is north for Clark Hollow.  The intersection of SR327 and Clark Hollow Rd is less than half a mile South of the Pike Run Cemetery / Church.

Bring a trail lunch and a tow strap.  Hopefully, we will have great weather, but I have found that good Jeeping can be had in all weather if we are prepared and the drivers are up for the challenge.

Should be a blast - no cell phones service, no address for the meeting facility, unmaintained roads, old Jeeps and fall colors!

Take a look at Google maps and let me know if you cant find the meeting place. Here is a link showing the meeting spot.  We will be driving the road East / Northeast of the meeting place.

Bob Evans is in.  Pretty sure I can talk my wife into coming again, as long as we can find a place to answer the call of nature.

I plan on attending, 1 of the guys that I brought last who borrowed my green DJ bought a 3b early this spring and we’ve been working on getting it road worthy. So there could be up to 5 (flatfenders) from my group attending.

Great glad to have everyone - We will have to see how this develops.  I expect we will have 2 or three more from the early day also.  So that puts us around 10 Jeeps at 6 months out.  If we get more we may split into two groups.  There are lots of roads and weather is always the variable as to how easy or hard the roads are.

I am looking forward to it!

Hi Stev,  Looks like you guys had a great time last year.  I'd like to join you this year.  Also, my brother is almost done with his CJ3A and I bet he'll want in.  That will add 2 more flatfenders!

Great - Glad to have everyone.  With Todd and Barry's additions - That might take us to 12 or 13 flatfenders 5 months out.  Headed for two groups most probably.  

Look forward to seeing everyone in October.
