No place. Join a club and the possibilities open up.

There are about 12-15 clubs here in the New England area that are part of East Coast 4WD Association.
Through those clubs, you can access trailrides pretty much every weekend, throughout New England. Some on public roads, others on private lands.
Average cost to join a club is less than $50 a year... In comparison, one Jeep Jamboree will run about $300 per person, for one WEEKEND.

There are a bunch of other bennies too that I will get into if you'd like to know.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask, here or via email, E4WBrill@aol.com

Talk soon,

To touch on what Dave Said...I have been typing this up all night, I thought it was pretty cool.


www.undergroundjeeps.net/EC_schedule.html

It is still under construction... but it shows how many runs culbs in the EC actually do. Also, very few of those are repeated trails, The investment of joining a club pays for itself 10 fold.

The other HUGE benefit is the friends you make. I have people that will help me fix my rig on the weekend or just to go out and grab some food or a beer with.

Holy Crap! There are 111 events there. That does not yet include at least two other clubs' events.
There are 52 weekends in a year. Do the math.

No hostility taken. I've been around awhile, my skin has gotten rough.

Hey I live in Westford MA. about 20 min from you. Theres a very select few of legal dirt/unmaintained roads in western MA that are fun in the winter and sometimes a little fun early spring. But nothing real. As said, you need a club!

Thats funny, i too have an SRT 4 that i just very recently (read: still in my driveway taking up space) sold!
