Hi, Lately my job has required that I make some trips from Baton Rouge to different territories around the country. Over the last 6 weeks I've made two trips, one to Lynchburg, VA and most recently to Kentucky. I've been taking advantage of these trips and extending them for one day/night so I can explore some trails that I'd likely not have the opportunity to see. The first trip was great and I documented the report here. I am optimistic that I'll be able to make a few more trips like this for my work. We will see. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to talk about Red River Gorge. Before I start, I'd like to thank all the Hammockforums.net members who gave me advice and guidance on this trip. Without these guys, specifically Broken Halo, scoffman, and Sintax77 I would have been aimlessly wandering around the area.
I departed Lexington and took the Bert Combs Mountain Parkway to Slade, Kentucky. In Slade I picked up my overnight pass and grabbed a quick lunch at the Subway. Departing the Subway I followed Campton Road to Tunnel Ridge Road, which brings you to the trailhead. I drove a little past the Grey's Arch trailhead to see the sites and I was glad I did.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
