I met up with a couple friends in New Hartford to check out some trails that they know. These are legal state forest roads. We were having a great time until we came to a muddy area with a few big holes in the middle. I made it through without any problems (man I love the Super Swampers), my friend in his stock Taco slammed his way through it, and then the Land Rover buried himself in it. The attempts to pull him out resulted in twisting the crap out of his bumper, and partially breaking his tow point. Then we tried hooking the front of my Jeep up to the Taco and trying a 2 truck pull, but that resulted in my tow point snapping in 2. We finally decided the only way to get him out was backwards, and that is when another XJ showed up and did the honors. The twisted part of the bumper was completely torn off after the Rover was pulled back out.

Front corner of his bumper is torn off, headlight is crooked, hood is stuck shut, tow point bracket broken, and fog light housing cracked. That was all I saw before leaving the trail. There were no fluids leaking, and no damage underneath the truck.
nothing in CT is worth a 2.5 hour drive unless youre talking about the very few pieces of private property local clubs have permission to use.
Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;
Can You Find The Area On Google Maps And Post Link To It Pls?
I Love To Check It Out
I think he's talking about the Nepaug State Forest, off of Rte 202 near Canton. I was up there mountain biking last weekend and saw some Jeeps go by. I followed them but only managed to find one 'trail'. I too would love to know where in the forest the good stuff is.
