Eastern Massachusetts

I look in here all the time and there aren't ever threads about wheeling the northeast MA/southern NH area.

Am I alone in the Essex county? I don't have any trails or dates in mind, but if you're from the area and want to go wheeling, post up and maybe we can get a group to go out wheeling some weekend.

That's because there is no public land in Eastern MA where it is LEGAL to wheel. NH has lots of "class 6" roads that offer some mildly challenging terrain.

In the Northeast, LEGAL wheeling on challenging terrain is mostly through the local 4wd clubs that have worked out deals with private land owners. New England Jeepz is one such club but there are many others. For example check out the Northeast Association of 4WD Clubs for a listing. New England Jeepz has many members around Eastern MA and would be a good choice if you are looking for hardcore wheeling.

Here's a couple more links for you to check out:

The club that I joined:
Eastern4Wheelers

The larger body that they belong to:
NOVA4x4.Org

I was very skeptical of joining clubs to go wheeling when I first got my Jeep. Why would I want to pay? Now that I've been involved for a while, I am so glad I did. The community a club brings is far better than your local friends and finding a couple others along the way here n' there. The trails I've had access to on club rides has been awesome. Absolutely challenging, often go-arounds for stuff I don't feel I'm ready for. Talented spotters for rock crawling that can get you through all sorts of things you never thought you could do.

You can also go hit up youtube.com and search for "e4w" to see some vids. Some are mine that I've posted up from recent events.

Thanks guys I appreciate the responses.

I've been doing a lot of work getting things together on my Jeep so I can put in an application for New England Jeepz. I've talked to a few members on here and I hear good things. It's almost together. Rear bumper (recovery points) should be here soon and my CB antenna is in the mail.

Join a club that is a member of the NEA4WD. You get a lot more bang for your buck.

I've considered purchasing a BMW before but then I take my Jeep wheeling and think of all the mods I want to do, and realize, I could never afford it
