Land use is a mess here for certain. But there are reasons that i have never joined a "club" before. the structure is like being back in uniform, the "leaders" I have seen in the past have an attitude with everything, and are just too damn tight a$$ to be able to enjoy yourself. The runs are like a doctors apointment, be here, be on time, check in, follow orders, we will be here at this time and there at that time. you will be told where and with wich group you will go with, ECT ECT ECT. Many folks really enjoy that structure and have fun at the rides, but i just don't have a schedule that allows me to be pidgeon holed into time slots. Miss one, and no wheeling for you...maybe next month. Sometimes, It's just nice to go take a ride because the weather is nice and warm, or you just feel like taking a ride in the woods. Sometimes by yourself, or maybe with a buddy or 2 and just wing it a little. Maybe I don't feel like being with a crowd of people, or wheeling for an entire day or weekend. I bet there are lots of guys like that.

It was like that when I got here.....

Yes, without a doubt. But doesn't organized wheeling help the issue?

Really? Which clubs are like that? Are they CT ones? Because this hasn't been my experience.

So does this mean that you wheel here in CT? Not a lot of places to go, are there?

possibly, but only for those that enjoy a structured club with slated events. Not the casual user.

One here in Ct. I was just an observer, nothing more.

Yes, I have personal access to a couple of hundred acres of unused land with old farm roads and trails. But wish there was more to enjoy on my own.

It was like that when I got here.....

Coldwater-

You are extremely fortunate to have access to that land. I understand, as well as I'm sure others do, what you mean about wishing there was more land to enjoy. You probably know the land that you wheel extremely well, and what what once challenging to you, is something that you could now do with your eyes closed. But if your purpose is just to go out in the woods for a casual ride , then you have an ideal situation. There are several spots here in CT that I know of that are worth going to in my opinion. Only one of those is state owned. The others are private that can only be accessed through a club run. So that's where being a member of a club has its benefits. The land that the clubs have access to isn't limited to CT. MA, VT, and NY for example have private and public land to wheel on as long as you don't mind the drive and know exactly where to and where NOT to go.

I'm pretty sure the land I use is going to be sold in the spring, and my access will be cut off. I'm not really knocking any clubs, I'm just used to enjoying a little quiet time in the woods alone from time to time. But the fools on both sides have messed up everything. Moron wheelers tearing up everything and shooting up powerlines have screwed us all. Now the tree huggers and special interest groups want what's left of us. no place for a gentle wheeler to go for a ride anymore

It was like that when I got here.....
