PV4WD just had our first run down to Rocky Mountain Terrain Park in Carthage. We had a BLAST! John Steele is the cat that runs the place. He's got something for everybody, that's for damn sure! Camping is $10 per night per adult and it's $20 a day to wheel (per adult) For a couple, it'd be $60 for the best wheeling you'd find and awesome camping! Can't go wrong!

He's got a rifle range, skeet shooting, a small dirtbike-style oval, two mud runs (one hard one easy) a bulldozer and a bucket loader to unstuck people. He's got two great big rock piles, one of which has a huge log-bridge across it!

The trail that looks the best is called "Shoulder Deep". It looks like something you'd see on Ultimate Adventure or Tough Truck Challenge!

He even runs snowmobile trails there in the winter (when there's snow).

PV4WD WILL be going back a LOT! I know I can't wait for our next run down there!

Sorry for the plug, but anyone up in NewEngland that wants to wheel NEEDS to check this place out!

I promised John that if I had a good time, I'd tell folks about it. He's got flush toilets, a shower, a 'lodge' with kitchen... it's great!

As John tells me, he's also completely off the grid and the more folks that visit, the better his facilities will become! As a result of PV4WD's club visit, he was able to purchase another solar panel! Fantastic!

He has access to a number of junkyards in the area and many local friends with tools, welders, torches, other emergency repair type gear.... This place is awesome!

www.rmtp.us

Check em out! I'll post up some pics we took!

Here's a link to our Picasa Gallery for the RMTP trip. I attached some of my favorite pictures though!

Here's the bigger of the two rock piles


Here's a picture of two of our guys coming down "Pumpkin Eater". MUCH more difficult going UP!

PV4WD goes out damn near every weekend. I think there's been maybe 2 weekends that we haven't done something since... March?

Of course we're up in the bangor area but anyone is welcome to come along! The info is posted up on our site (Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive) we've got members all over new england and like meeting new folks.

Sooo... don't be shy, just because you're not in the club!

I am in Portland. Just picked up an 04 rubicon a few weeks ago. I am also looking for some people to go wheeling with.

Well I am new to offroading in general so I would like to start from the basics. Looking for some trails in this area. My jeep is still stock suspension with 31s. I plan to upgrade next spring to something bigger.
