primarily places most of you have never heard of, all in USA, most in CA and WI and IL, most now closed and if not, no one uses them much if at all these days. Weird. Rarely resided near the well-known sites.
By cheesehead
Anyone ever hear of Bender Park or Cliffside Park in WI? Indian Ridge in IL? Midway, Ant Hill, Comanche, Beacon Hill, El Rancho, Convict, Dolly Parton, or Bear Mt., CA?
By cheesehead
Oh, and I forgot Slick Rock, CA. Amazing. Gorgeous. Never crowded. Easy launch at over 3000 AGL. Mellowest locals (all 5 of them). Near giant Sequoia groves & great camping. CA condors occasionally sighted. Unregulated. My favorite. Just too far out of the way for the hordes to visit.
