    Thanks for the help Sully. I will keep an eye out for him.

    Yeah, you arn't having any problems as with the fire are you? Such a horrible thing to see. God Bless those and their friends and families who lost their home or life to the fire.

    BTW, I live near San Jose. Are there any other four wheel sites close to me? I think Hollister is the closest but it is an hour away. It kinda of makes me mad that if I get a craving for some mud. I have to go my local park at 2 in the morning. haha Oh well.

    Excellent! Just keep your headlights dim so no one sees ya. (I assume it isn't a designated off-road area, but maybe it is)

    I actually found a good spot at the local park. The park has a foot deep river through it and lots of baseball fields that get over sprinklered every night so it is always muddy!!! Of course I don't do it often because I have to keep my headlights off and lay off the brake as much as possible to not be seen.

    The place down the street is where someone is trying to build indistrial buildings.But they have been trying for 2 years!There is a 40 foot long ditch that fillls with at least 2 feet of water.And we made it like a track so we can just have some fun and do jeep drag races.It will be awsome.

    Please take this the right way but it's people like you that give 4 wheel drive enthusiasts a bad name. People show up to play ball and you've torn up the field. They start bad mouthing all 4 wheelers and give us a bad public image. Then they start trying to shut down the few legal places left for us to go.

    Thanks alot dude.

    No, I'm pretty sure they just blame it on dumb *** drunk teens with nothing else to do. I have thought about it before and I just realized that they have nothing to take away from me. The closest off-road site is a ways away. And I really don't think they blame it on off-roaders. If you have seen this actually happen before, please tell me because I don't want to be at all responsible for taking away a 4wd spot from everyone.

    Eric,what you should do is go and find an empty dirt lot.Or ask a buddy who rides dirt bikes where they ride in the local area.And you will find a fun spot I am sure.

    Found a christmas tree farm that has a big dirt parking lot that doesn't drain water at all! Damn its muddy, I just got to worry about the po-pos because it is in this rich town where there are always lots of 5-0s. The farm is owned by one family so I'm just gonna try asking them first. This is definatley the problem in living in rich suburbs. There is basically no empty land that no one cares about.

    I'm here north of Sacto and watching this thread closely! I'm also looking for some wheeling spots. I know that there are a bunch of areas around but I don't want to wheel alone! :P
    1989 Sahara, 4.2, ignition upgrade, Pioneer CD, 8\" sub, 1\" shackle lift, Bombproof motor mounts. Lots to go!
