Switching coasts... curious about the legality of wheeling around LA.

So I some time in the next year I am going to start planning my move to santa monica. The winters here are awful, and if your into making yourself a career in the auto industry - ca is the place to be. I was just curious, how does wheeling work out there? Are there plenty of spots you can go to legally? From what I saw while driving out to vegas from LA, it seems like the desert is pretty much open season, as I saw trails everywhere.

Here, on the east coast, wheeling is more or less considered just as bad as dealing drugs or shooting small children - not lethally, but perhaps giving them a limp for the rest of their lives. Its painful. The east coast totally frowns upon anything you could consider 'fun'. Legal land, short of private land, is almost non-existent. There are a few state parks in MA and unmaintained roads, but its tough to find spots that your camry wouldn't be able to tackle.

I built my jeep and it would have been pointless to do in the midwest where its the same. Around me was private owned land ( farms ) and next to no public land.
Out here in SoCal, plenty of legal trails that will meet any level you're looking for. The desert in the winter time is fun to go out and explore, and the mountains have trails for the summer time.

Life with Christ can be explained like a Jeep...
Being in the Word... grows your tire size.
Prayer... gains more ground clearance.
Fellowship... Is like having a good spotter.

The more of these you have... the easier it is to get over obstacles in your path.
