I haven't been doing a whole lot of wheeling this year. Only been out twice. Sort of left the wheeling world for a while. Doing vintage/European racing, SCCA track stuff and British car shows.
However, if you email me, I can probably set you up wth some of the road names out there that are dirt roads, have some minor rutting, small rocks and some low level water/mud. Not super challenging but, hey, any day out in the woods is better than a day at work.
I have to check through my maps.
Something that you guys can do that can be real fun:
Go to Borders, pick up a CT gazetteer. That is a map book with pretty much every road still on the books, printed over a mild topo map. Take an area each weekend and highlite the roads you want to explore and check out. Then, get together and go. What you'll find is that some roads may have been paved since the last printing, some may be blocked, some are just gravel that you can drive a Subaru on at speed but, some... some are just bad enough to have some fun on... Takes the Jeep ideal of exploration and puts it into the palm of your hands. AND... if you have a GPS and the gazetteer, if you get pulled over/stopped, you just point to the map and the GPS... if there is a situation, the officer will surely see that you were trying to do the right thing and will almost always tell you to just turn around (w/o giving any kind of ticket/warning) and sometimes, if they're a local, they may tell where you CAN go legally. This usually works best with just a couple of Jeeps, maybe 3-4 max.
