Red Clay Rally in Hind sight….

The Red Clay Rally was the first one of it’s kind any of us within Wolfpack Overland have ever competed in, and will not be the last.  In the end, I had driven over 900 miles on my new Tread Wright tires since leaving my house Thursday night, and returning home Sunday night at about…

Across the finish line !

After the 3 foot water crossing, we were feeling pretty good. Pushing on we came into Georgia, and entered into the woods again. At the top of the mountain, we encountered our last check point where Whit and I got a surprise. Over the radio we hear Domonik say “pull over just to the right”….

Sprinting to the finish!!

It was Sunday, and the last and final day of the Red Clay Rally. With us starting at the dead last of the pack; we chose to take full advantage of the extra time. Sleeping in till almost 7, making fresh bacon, coffee, and relaxing with some good conversation. Neither Domonik nor myself had any…

Think skinny!!

After leaving the deals gap area, we continued on into North Carolina. With myself Domink, and the three trucks from Dobinson suspension it was only about 20 minutes on pavement before we were back on a fire road pushing our rigs towards the last set of trails. After about 20-30 minutes of these fire roads,…

And onward we went 

With the parsons branch road closed, we were forced to go back into Townsend and across the parkway till we reached the infamous Deals Gap 129.  313 curves in 11 miles is what this road is world famous for, and I grew up just at the foot of the mountain.  With Domonik and the entire…

Out of the cow field

As we woke up Saturday morning, we were happy to see nothing but blue sky’s and sunshine!  Today’s trip was going to be an easy day per the map.  This route showed us going through a lot of USFS roads, as well as several national parks.  As usual, we all lined up and made a…

And we’re off!!!!  

It was Friday at 05300 and we were up, loaded, ready, and anxiously awaiting the first leg of the Red Clay Rally!  This was gonna take a while…. LMAO. I don’t think any of us understood how long it was going to take to line up 31 teams, and almost 100 rigs!  This first day…

Red Clay Rally – The calm before the storm 

This story may take a few posts to complete…. So, just bare with me.  I (Wes McKeehan) and my better half Whit signed up last October for the event that Overland Tennessee was starting, the Red Clay Rally.  That Rally just took place this past weekend, June 2-4.   Thursday:  I had to work about…

Videos are tricky when you’re dumb…

We are experimenting with some different cameras, editing software, mounts, and bla bla bla. You see all of the people on YouTube making awesome looking videos of all of their trips and think, “hmm… I bet I can do that!”  Well… if you’re as horrible on a computer as I am, you are most likely…

Beyond blessed

As with many Overland crews, we have a variety of different people in numerous different career paths. We do, however, have one particular member with some amazing talents. That member is a Wolfpack Overland Original, and that would be Jeremy Gouge. Owner of J.Gouge Photography.  You have saw many of his photos throughout our insragram…

Fox Fire, and beyond …

The time had come for part of the team to have some serious R&R. Saturday morning several of us headed off to the edge of North Carolina, and Tennessee to the Hartford exit off I40. A quick setup with our CVT Roof top tent, hammocks up all around, and it was good to go!  Fishing…
