I would like to get a wheeling trip to the white mountains on the west entrance. I would also like to go hit the trails in delta, I heard there's miles and miles. Glen Allen area is another place I would like to go.i would like to do a winter wheeler ride to maybe lower angel creek cabin.

I have been wanting to take a trip to stampede trail and go see the magic bus. Since I was a kid always wanted to go there but heard it's only hiking yet I have heard and seen pics from people taking that trail in the trucks and jeeps within the last couple of years. So that's my dream trip. And like postal said a trip to white mountains

This Summer I would not mind hosting a wheeling group at my lot in Manley Hot Springs for an overnighter or two. My lot has a level rock covered pad with room for at least a couple of RV's plus some wheeling rigs. Besides the trailer that Linda and I stay in while we are there, we have an unheated 25 foot fifth wheel available for guests to sleep in parked there and a cleared area where tents could be pitched. The Manley Roadhouse with rooms, a restaurant and a bar is about a half mile down the road. We are right near the intersection of the Elliot Highway and Tofty road, which they are working on to extend to the Yukon River directly opposite the village of Tanana. I do not know how far they have gotten with that. I would think it has at least been surveyed and cleared all the way. there are lots of trails out there to various mines and stuff, but I would have to find out more about that. I am hoping to spend the majority of my summer out there building and it would be fun to take a BBQ and wheeling break with some buddies while there.

My dream wheeling involves not having to have modified rigs.
Some challenges are nice, but I would enjoy more trails like Historic trail. I'd like to explore the trails off the Steese hughway, possibly re-find Bachelor creek which starts at the last maintenance station off the Steese past Chatanika lodge.
This would likely be an overnight trip.
Muskeg adventure sounds delightful as well.
