    Welcome to the April 2014 Novice Ride!!!!


    This ride will focus on street friendly trucks and drivers with limited off-road experience. We encourage participation from anyone ...

    Posts asking for directions to the trails rarely, if ever, get replied to. There a few reasons for this.

    The first and main reason is that we basically just do not want to advertise the location of the "trails". All of the trails we run are legal roads, however there are bunches of illegal side trails and bypasses that run through private property. Since there are obviously no road signs it would be pretty easy to accidentally get on one of these trails if you do not know your way around.

    We try to respect the private land owners as much as possible and just one truck straying someplace they shouldn't be can cause problems for the entire fourwheeling community.

    There are also those out there, even though it may be a small percentage overall, that have no respect for the trails. This can be witnessed by the endless piles of beer cans, trash, and burnt cars you often see in these areas. Along these lines it's pretty difficult to give directions to the trail and through them as there a very few trails that do not have numerous turn-offs and loops.



    The second reason is that the trails we run are not the type you would want to go by yourself, nor are they the type you can just go and play around for a couple of hours and come home. Even the most well equipped rigs often get stuck or break down and there are no tow places or repairs shops just around the corner and we often spend a solid 8 hours just getting from one end to the other. I would never lead anyone to these trails unless they were well equipped and had at least three or four rigs along. A third, and possible biggest reason, is that there are anti-fourwheel groups that could intentionally target specific areas in an attempt to close them down if they found out where they are....even though they are legal public roadways.

    Again, the places we go are not our own private trails, and we will not ever claim they are. We just choose not to publicize this information for any random person to find while surfing the web. If anybody is interested in riding these trails, I would highly recommend joining an existing club (whether it is this one or another one), or just join up with a responsible group of people who also enjoy fourwheeling.

    test for posting pictures

    test for posting pictures:

    You may have to "re-size" the picture so it will be of a small size - club-site wont allow large pictures.
