Hey, I just sent out a few PM's looking for places to wheel around here. I'm working at UMO right now, i go to school there as well. Did this trip to Stud Mill ever turn into something?

i'm kind of a new jeeper.. had my jeep for little over a year. not much done to it right now except new tires. plan on having a 400ci smallblock swapped into it over the summer, 6.6L baby! really busy working to pay for that. very little time for trails. i'm pretty sure i've seen some of you riding around bangor before. my girlfriend lives right on union st past hannaford so i go through there a lot.. see quite a few jeeps. never imagined some of them mightve been on here!

I live about 5 minutes from your girlfriend then.

I'm still looking for places to ride and people to ride with. Good luck with that engine swap!

i've probably seen (and waved!) to you then. i'm commonly seen riding down union st or around hermon village. we should meet up sometime and go trailing down around etna pond in carmel. i go there a bit sometimes after it rains. i'm riding around in a little green wrangler. you can tell me apart by my back door. ITS BENT IN. i backed into a pole on hammond street picking up flowers for my girlfriend...i felt really dumb that day.

alright, well I'm graphite metallic, wave to me and I'll look for you.

Is that legal around there? Seeing all my fourwheeler trails get closed, I really do not want to be a part of the cause. If it is I'd definitely like to go with you.

I live just over the line in hermon, between ohio and union. I work at UMO every day, but I've been taking Forest Ave through Glenburn. Nice ride but that road is just killer.

Ever checked out stud mill road? I still haven't figured out if it's legal yet.

etna pond isnt open to public access but i have permission to. my uncle has ties with all the land owners out there and i'm allowed to fly through the mud holes and such out there. not a lot of mud, but loads of water (some of the spots have water up to 3ft deep at times). i hear theres a few trails on stud mill rd thats open to public, but personally i don't know. a friend of mine with a 99 sport takes his jeep up there (hes got rubi tires on it) and takes a few trails out there. we'll have to try that glenburn one sometime, i havnt been out there much. i just got out of school for the summer and plan on doing loads of work to the wrangler.

Hey guys the studmill and the surrounding land is all private but almost all of it is open to wheeling.....tons of exploring. I am always looking for new spots to go. I live in Orland and there a few small spots out here. Waldo mountain in Frankfort is a good one to. Problem is all the trails around here are short. I just talked to a friend that said there are some good trails up around Glenburn and up in Charleston too. When I find out more I will post.

Yep, I actually live in Hermon now as well.

I went fourwheeling (ATV) yesterday out the Airline, unloaded at the diner and rode to Deer lake. Lots of trails, and it seems there's some pretty stable traffic on all the logging roads off of Stud Mill Road (I was out by amherst/aurora).

A few times it was pretty funny -- I'd be in the middle of nowhere, hadn't seen a soul, nor sign of people, for 25 miles, then I'd round a corner and be facing a Civic or something on one of the logging roads.

It was pretty dusty. i think once it gets above a certain point (ie goggles are mandatory) you can't really tell anymore, and it was above that point .

Oops--missed this post. Yes, we (www.midcoastjeep.com and www.maine4x4.com) had a "Wheelin' 101" tech session at All Wheels with wheelin' afterwards. Minor carnage ensued, caused mostly by "Cadillac Hole".

The club (Mid Coast Jeep 'n' ORV) is headed up to Rangeley this weekend for a wheelin'/camping trip. We're meeting at the Rangeley IGA around 6:00 PM today (Friday the 4th). Those that want will be camping tonight and Saturday night--heading home Sunday afternoon. Everyone welcome!
