That spot off of sterns and munger Rd I noticed they are starting to block off areas. I went down along the treeline off of spitzer and when you get to the other end they blocked off the one path with a load of rocks.

Yep and the far end of the treeline is blocked by two giant piles. I kind of 'forged' my own way across the ravine haha which involved some pretty nice tree branch scrapes along the top of my hard top. Worth it. Thanks again for the tip wranglerjeep

I was stuck there for 4 hours and I was almost out when the first cop showed up. They said a tow truck had to pull me out. In the end there was 5 cops, 2 tow trucks, and 2 fire trucks.
First rule, don't wheel alone
second rule, call a friend with a 4x4 before you get caught stuck

I got myself stuck a few times with my 98 Tacoma, back behind the old RV lot off lake St west of rt 59, had to call my buddy with his Tacoma to get me out
thank god no cops could ever see us back there!

Have you guys ever wheeled out in Woodstock, across from Blaines FARM n Fleet of rt 14/47? Used to wheel there(paintball field)

First rule don't go off road and wheel illegally. Especially when you are thanking God cops can't see you. Obviously you know what you were doing was wrong...so why do it?
