Possible Relocation to MD

Hey all,

I am going to interview for a job in Columbia, MD this week. If it works out I will be relocating in the next year or so. I was hoping someone could give me some advice on locations to move to, where to wheel, hunt, chill. My wife and I have some sticker shock over the housing prices at the moment. Wow! MD is expensive!!

Anyway, I hope to have the Fam, Bird dog, and WJ out there later this summer. Thanks in advance for any help!

Maryland is not a very free place for wheeling. It's hard to come by. Almost all ohv trails are closed. I haven't heard of anywhere near Columbia. Bottom line, it's a big bummer.

Well that's not an exciting answer. What about fees for driving on the beach? Is that still possible?

From my understanding, assateague island is still available for driving. You have to have a jack, peice of wood, and shovel before they'll let you drive(I think). At ocean city, jeep week is beach driving. Might be some other times/particular places, but I don't trust my jeep in oc so I'm no expert.

I take my jeep to OC a lot, and I never have issues with the local leos. Yes, you can get a permit for Assateaque and/or the Delaware beaches; both of them are geared towards those wanting access for surf fishing.

MD has next to nothing trails wise; most go south to Big Dogs or north to Rausch Creek.

If you can get past the initial inspection for the Jeep there are no annual ones to deal with other than the emissions tax every few years.

Go away from Columbia/Ellicott City to find less expensive housing, but cheap is going to be hard. Check Carroll County, it may be better. You will drive more, but realestate may be cheaper.

Good luck.

Hope you had good news about the job, if you did and want a great real estate agent pm me and I will get you the name. I just moved from California and had to go thru that whole process, it was a pain! I like Howard county, but it is expensive.
