A couple of spots in/around the Crystal Lake/Woodstock areas. Not 'official' places to wheel though, so I haven't been there too often. Don't want to risk the trouble.

Lately I've been to Badlands and to Cliffs... LOST has a June run planned for Nicolet NP up in NE Wisconsin though. The forest-access roads are open to the public, and some are just as good if not better than trails at Badlands.

The closest legal place is Cliffs.


Do not discuss illegal wheeling here. Every local place around here is illegal.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.

I wouldn't even imply it.

So, who is the person with the tire on the top of the Cherokee (or Grand, I don't pay that much attention) who I see by the General Store quite often?

Imply? All I said was it's out there, I didn't give GPS coords or something.

And I think I've seen that cherokee around too, and another white one on 35's+

Guys, I am looking for a bunch of people for this saturday (sorry for short notice) to hit the silver lake sand dunes.

I'd like to leave about 1:00am saturday morning (or whenever to get their at opening) since I have work saturday night.

If you interested, shoot me an email at joshmcdoogs@hotmail.com

If it'll be easier for you give me a # I can text you at or instant message to get back to you faster.
