I have nothing to hide or feel guilty about. We all (staff) work to make it a safe and enjoyable place. ALL OF THE STAFF, not just me. Have a nice day. Drama Pit is only what you perceive not what is reality.
Enough said we can agree to disagree.

Now I'm confused......you need someone to make sure you don't shoot yourself or someone else but you don't need someone to make sure you don't do something stupid and kill youself or someone else wheeling? I've shot on the range and the sarge sits back and watches until someone has a shooting question or does something stupid. Doesn't the rest of the staff do that for the wheelers? That's how I always thought it was.

Hahaha whatever you say Judy, true offroad parks dont have trail leaders, i guess jeepskool and southington need them due to the stock like terrain that attracts newbies who need some teaching

Did i once complain about having a trail ride or not having a trail ride? No, did i question the reasoning behind staff? Yes! as have others in the past. Truth of the matter is you need to pull some weeds from your garden of awesomeness. i along with many others have been bad mouthed in front of family and children by several staff, because i asked if i could use the hose for 30 seconds to spray off my windows. If safety is the number one concern why doesnt $40 to get in entitle me to a gallon of water to get home safe? i have no respect for many of the "trail leaders" because of said occurence

Guys, I'm pretty sure we all have our opinions about one park or another. I'm also pretty sure they differ greatly. Let's leave it at that instead of getting on a public forum and making ourselves look silly by arguing about it. I know you are all better than this.
I look forward to getting the chance to wheel with each of you(again).

-Mike

I will second this. My $40 entry fee was apparently not enough to use the hose at the factory to spray off my headlights so I could make a safe run into town.

Did this happen at the December Southington Offroad "Deck the Trails" 4x4 event or was it when you were out there before?

I have been considering coming to one of these events, but have never wheeled my Jeep before. I have an ATV that I have ridden Hatfield McCoy trails many times before, (and love it) but have never been offroad in the Jeep. Wondering if I were to come out if someone would be willing to let me do a ride along in their Jeep a time or two, to kind of see what to expect, and how to handle some situations.

I would 100% let you ride along with me but I am rebuilding my Jeep this winter and I won't be wheeling it until this spring (hopefully it will be done by then).

I'm sure that someone else would be willing to let you ride along with them and give you some pointers

Thats the way I would like to start out, doing a few ride alongs. My Jeep is currently 100% stock. While I understand it is completely capable to wheel the way it is, I would like to add a few items to make me fell a little better. I was thinking the first thing would be a new bumper and winch, but read that the added weight causes a little "sag" in the suspension. So I am thinking that should be upgraded first, nothing crazy 2.5"-3". I have a 2008 JK Unlimited Sahara for future reference.

Wheel it stock first it will make you a better driver, you'll also learn its weaknesses. Just replace as you see fit.

As for the ride along check out our club, www.northeastohio4x4.com we have plenty that would love to show you "the ropes"

Hope to see you on the trail!

Bring your stocker out to get a feel of the place and it. I wheeled a stocker for over a year and sure there are places I couldn't go, but I would jump into the passenger seat of someone's rig and ride. I've never been refused a ride. Hell, my rig is still basically a stocker with just a few mods so I still get "challenged" by a lot of the property. Your JK probably came with bigger wheels and a higher suspension than my TJ after mods. Come on out and have some fun. Then make up your mind about the place instead of letting one bad incident or other people's opinions color your judgement.
