What constitutes "REAL Wheeling?"

after reading What constitutes a "REAL jeep?" I want to know what constitutes "REAL wheeling" to you,

To me, at some point you fully flex the suspension and scare yourself and your passenger or your spotter at some point in the trail, dents show proof

real wheeling is when you go to an offroad park for het day or weekend and break things that you cannot afford to replace. You bring all the hamburger meat and alcohol you can afford, set up tents in the middle of the woods and chill for the weekend with your friends/ girlfriends. Then your social life/ relationships/ schoolwork suffers as a result ..... oh wait, thats just me

"Real" wheeling is something you don't have to pay admission for.

Offroad park?
If I ever have to pay to go wheeling, I know I've done something seriously wrong.

why is that so ridiculous?

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;

Not rediculous, just a foreign concept to those of us in the wide open west.

I see it like ski resorts...an established park can offer awesome terrain and great trails, an awesome experience...but there's just something about being in the backcountry.
