Here are a few pics from the trip we took to Asateague Island. For $70 you get a one year pass and there is about 25 miles of beaches and dunes to explore. These make for great backcountry extended stays in the rover. The island is full of wild horses and deer. You can surf fish all day. Wheel the dunes in the afternoon/evening, then have great meal of whatever the days catch was.
Our next backcountry trip is planned for 4 days this April. These are just a few shots of some fo the more accessible spots on the island.
1:Bridge over Cheseapeake Bay
2:"Beefalo" farm on the way to asateague. Strange cross between a buffalo and a cow.
3:Rehoboth Beach; a shoreline defense station, circa 1950
4:Rehoboth Bay
5:Deer on Asateague
6-9: Various Spots on the Island
10:Stuck on the Bay Bridge (pretty cool shot)

The buffalo and beef mix was an effort many years ago to fight bursolosis(sp). It had mixed results. But people still today bread beefalos. I hear the taste good.
I've never tasted it. I would like to.

They look like your old run of the mill buffalo until you get close. Then you can really see the "cow'" characteristics. Especially the horns which point up and out and extend beyod the ears. The buffalo's are shorter. Also they are not as brawny as the buffalo and appear to be timid.

Oh well....they look pretty cool.

I'm really surprised the fuggin' tree huggers haven't locked that island down yet.
Luckily they haven't found an endangered species of sand fleas to have the island protected from the evils of the SUV crowd.

That surprised me as well. When they told me I could wheel out there year round for $70 my knees got weak. Now I just hit the island and dissapear for 3 or 4 days. There are regular patrols fromk park rangers (who are very helpful) but there intent is to make sure the flora and fauna is not distiurbed and that poeple in Large chevy trucks with 38 inch super swampers aren't ripping up the dunes (like I saw this weekend).
Overall...one of the best kept secrets on the East Coast and a great place to test both you and your rovers endurance.

Great Area! I'm in Bowie and hangout in Annapolis a lot. My extent over the Bay Bridge is usually to Fisherman's Inn (GREAT Seafood) or down to St Michael's , Tilgman Island. I'll have to check out this place this spring/summer. :cool:

Nice pics, that looks pretty cool. In boring Ohio, there isn't any place like that to go to. :cool:
You said it! I'm originally from Plymouth, MI, but right now I'm in Lima, OH going to school at University of Northwestern Ohio. The only trail to really hit is a mile outta town and is drenched in water, too wet for anyone to go back there.:bawling: But I'll just wait til it warms up out here!:D Then possibly go to Virginia in June!
