Absolutely. You would be hard pressed to get anything more than a warning most of the time. If you are treading lightly, picking up trash on the trail and being a reasonable human being no officer in their right mind would arrest you.

Jansey - I was rather polite when you tried to tip me off on my thread figuring you were just trying to be nice to someone new to the game. Now it seems clear that you are more of a bully than anything else.

Perhaps you should stick to commenting on peoples actual builds and leave the martyr lecture behind. We all know the rules and the laws, there is no need to go around to the build thread of everyone in CT to over exaggerate your view point.


Chicks are allowed build threads here, right?

Do what you want. All it takes is a quick search and its clear that the areas you guys are wheeling and posting pictures of, are spots you should not be. You are the ones posting them up and talking about the locations, I'm just informing you...

I've mentioned to you a while back, that for NE, the best way and really only way to get access to trails is to join a club... There are plenty in NE. I have wheeled almost every weekend in the last two months, all legal.

And Like I said, I've known people in CT that wheel. A few years ago when they were new, had wheeled in another State Park there and were close to at least getting their rigs impounded. All it takes is a cop that is having a bad day...

I'm sure there are waay more people that would back me up with what I'm saying than stand behind you. All you are doing is hurting the sport and it will not ever help open up any state land in your state if you just contiune to trespass.

Good luck with everything.

I'm pretty positive that even those state forests are not meant to be wheeled in with a Jeep. Even if they are, its just the main trail, the offshoots from them are illegal and you could be arrested, not just given a ticket. Not trying to police you guys or be a dick, just letting you know of what I have heard and know...

Everyone I know that lives in CT that wheels either makes the ride up to MA/NH or the trek to PA for Rausch.

Perhaps I've been to vague in describing the location of my "adventures". To set the record straight, all of the roads I've talked about, described, or photographed here in CT have been clearly marked or well established and have shown up on multiple published maps. On the occasions that I come across a road or "trail" that I'm not sure about, I note it's location and check it out on my maps when I get home to see if it's good or not. Not sure what else I need to do to consider a road "safe".

Indeed. Anywhere I have gone have been unimproved dirt roads that are NOT marked no trespassing or areas that we have gone with locals who have a working relationship with EPO officers.

Jansey - I am not trying to say that you are wrong. I just don't think that its very productive for you to be going around to peoples build threads bullying them into being afraid of doing what they love. There is a proper time and place for everything and you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

Perhaps instead of going after Jeep owners that tread lightly you should join an ATV forum and start picking on people who rip through trails and destroy them and throw beer cans out everywhere. That is where the real problem is.

I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

Well, I've come to a "Y" in the road so to speak, and need to decided if:

A) Do I stay in CT and get a job while I try to figure out what it is that I really want to do with my life.

or

B) Do I drop everything, pack my stuff, and drive 2000 miles to CO within the next 30 days to join my buddy at a roughly 2 year aviation mechanic school. Upon completion of said school I would receive an Associates degree and an A&P license, as well as help getting a job.

God damnit!!! Everyone is moving to Colorado! Oh right... that's because the job market isn't deplorable there.

I haven't decided on anything yet, all though the more I learn about the school the better and better it sounds...

Perhaps you should look for some work in CO yourself?

Exactly like I told Liz - go for it. The odds of you finding a decent job in the northeast isnt great. Why not spend 2 years in Colorado on an adventure... gaining skills to come back home and get a good career and spend forever with me!!!!!

I would be very interested in moving out to CO - but the odds of me finding a better job are slim to none. I am very lucky and very happy where I am now. Maybe in 2 years when I am done with grad school I might consider relocating if Liz likes it out there. I will miss me some New England though....

Is there some sort of domestic partnership here?

Yeah. We are the best straight lesbian couple ever. She even wears the blue diamond ring I gave her on her left ring finger. We have both come to terms with the fact that we will have an open marriage down the road.
