About the Event

Explore Coppinger Cove VU4

Thurs June 6th-Sun 9th

Words fail me when I try to describe “The Cove”!  Nestled along the banks of the Little Sequatchie River, this destination represents the pinnacle of off-roading on the East Coast. The Cove is a hidden treasure, a well-guarded secret known only to the truly prepared.

Here, you'll find turquoise waters that glisten in the sunlight, massive caves that beckon exploration, waterfalls that seem to vanish into thin air, and rugged terrain that only those equipped for the journey will ever witness. Our expedition will leave no stone unturned as we explore every nook and cranny of this geological marvel.

Picture yourself camping at the entrance of a cave, where the night sky blankets you in a canopy of stars. Imagine taking a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear swim holes, surrounded by the serene beauty of nature. And, of course, anticipate the best off-roading experience you could ever dream of.

Are you prepared for The Cove? Venture Unknown invites you to join us for an extraordinary three-day adventure in off-roading paradise. Get ready to embrace the thrill of the journey, the wonder of the natural world, and the camaraderie of fellow adventurers. The Cove awaits – are you up for the challenge?"

Camping type

All camps for this adventure will be dispersed style camping. Meaning there are no bathrooms, running water, or electricity available at camps. We can educate newbies on how to camp in this manner. Do not be afraid to ask questions leading up to this adventure or join us for a hands-on workshop prior to the ride. This is a REAL adventure and can be very rewarding when prepared properly.

What to bring?

Everything to be self-sustained for multiple days in the wild. This should include proper clothing for the season, footwear (water resistant recommended), food, trail snacks, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, rain gear, and most important the right attitude. If you forgot something we will give you the shirt off our back but please plan ahead. Don't be shy, ask questions. We love to help people enjoy this hobby.

Communications

Before the trip

We will be available for any questions you may have. We can be reached by phone, messenger, or email.  Sean will also create a chat for all that are planning to come appx a week before the event.

During the trip

We use GMRS radios during our rides. We highly recommend this type of communications. If you need recommendations on what to buy we will be glad to help. If you aren't able to secure a radio for the ride, we will provide a loaner. We will use GMRS CH17 (462.600)

What's included?

You can expect Sean to use his many years running guided trips to help you adapt to being off-road in remote spots of the wilderness and ensure he has your best interest always at the forefront. We never leave a man behind. So if a mechanical failure happens there will be plans to help recover your rig. You can expect a welcoming community of folks that always welcome you to the fire and who knows maybe Sean will share his famous Mango Margaritas with you. You can expect a VU sticker that captures this adventure so you can look back and remember the fun! Michelle's delicious homemade banana bread will be served on the final morning at our gratitude circle (this is worth the cost) just ask anyone. Educational opportunities during this ride will include driving techniques, gear recommendations, communication and navigation lessons. We also will share a GPX file of our route that includes camps in the area. You also will have access to a trip photo album.
