I would HIGHLY suggest that well before you head out to go wheeling at ANY location.. make sure it is legal. All you need is to have 15 rigs lined up and an EPO handing out $100+ fines. For that cost, you all could have joined a club for two years or started your own and had a bunch of money in the kitty for things like club decals and insurance.

There is a club on Long Island, Long island Off Road and they do regular trips to all legal places.
One might want to contact them to find out if the place you're going is legal.

bobblair@optonline.net

In my 20 years of wheeling here in New England, I know that other than private land with permission, there are no places to go on the island except for the beaches, with permits.
There is also very little in upstate NY... The idea that "I've been going there for a while and never had a problem" does not make it open and legal.

If this is your first time out, I wouldn't want it spoiled by a ticket. Please check.

and once you do, make sure you have fun!!

Talk soon,

Well personally I contacted the LI Offroad club you're talking about, or at least I attempted to. I got no response twice. Then I see people constantly looking for others on LI here on the forum, including myself. So I'm just gathering some info so we can all figure something out together. It's not a "club," just a meet and greet. If anything else develops, so be it, but it's nothing "official." We're just getting together for some wheel'n.


And yes, LEGAL wheeling is important, we are not just going to go "yeehaw, let's grab a bunch of guys and tear up the local park and playground!" lol

It should be fun, where ever we end up going. And yes, it will be legal. We got a good number of people so far, so I can't wait personally. And I have some ideas of locations myself, will require a trip though. Hopefuly others who have already volunteered will have more info. The more the merrier.

Thats excellent.. When the time comes that you are heading out, shoot that guy Bob Blair an email, he will answer you back and most probably know the legality of any place you're planning on going so you have no chance of any problems.

Talk soon,

I literally JUST sent out the e-mail to everyone, we have over 15 people/rigs so far. Which is great! I sent out a short e-mail to get in contact and two proposed wheel'n meetups. So everyone check their e-mail at some point today if you can, and let me know what everyone thinks is best.

Also, if you did not recieve an e-mail from me, but you DID already e-mail me your information, post a response here with your e-mail address so I can correct it and send you a copy.

I'll be sending you an email after I swap out my transmission. I'm hoping to be picking up a NV4500 in the next few days, otherwise I'll just throw in the spare AX-15 I have. I'm definitely in though as soon as my Jeep is ready.

Smith Point is open this summer and has daily beach passes, I believe after this memorial day weekened you are allowed to go and just hang out you dont need to carry fishing poles and such, camping is also available but you need to register for that, but we could at least get everyone on the beach and have a small convoy around then a BBQ or something since you are allowed to cook on the beach.

When are you guys planning on going? I'm in Buffalo but might be in NYC the 3rd week of July to visit family. Would love to do a little wheeling "back home."

Thumbs up

Smith Point County Park looks like would be a good place to just meet with local off roaders and possibly set up a trip to actually do some off roading. Hammonton is definitely more of a trip to go off roading rather than just hang out. Raush creek is definitely more for off roading than hangin as well. If all everyone has in mind is getting together for a meet and greet, Smith Point looks perfect. Heck you could even camp there if you wanted to, only down side is no alcohol allowed, but thats ok too. Probably not a bad idea to meet and greet before actually setting up something for real wheelin, this way at least you can be sure you would wanna be stuck in a hole and be able to count on the veh behind or in front of you to pull you out. I could do smith point the weekend of 6/23-24.

Well, I'll send out an e-mail to everyone who has e-mailed me so far and we'll take a vote.

Personally I'd like to get together for some wheel'n right off the bat, which Hammonton seems to be the best bet besides an actual offroad park. Especially since the pine barrens have sights to see along the trails for those bringing guests along for the trip. I might head down to hammonton myself with a friend this weekend.

Anyway, tonight I'll send out an e-mail and find out what everyone wants to do. Great suggestions guys!!!
