Private Off Road Parks

4 Wheel MagazineOff-roading is an exciting way to spend the weekend. It is something that gets you out of the house, out of the city, and into the woods for a thrilling adventure using your favorite four-wheeler, dirt bike, and more. There are public parks that allow you to go off-roading and then there are private or member only off road parks that you must pay to get into. There are some people who feel that the private off road parks are able to provide more fun than all other options. If you haven’t given them a try, perhaps it is time that you do.

National Parks and Free Areas to Ride

Off-roading in national parks can be exciting. These trails are often less challenging because they are more natural. However, this does not mean that you should expect them to be easy. There may still be flooded areas and steep climbs, depending on where you are riding. The problem is, many of these parks strive to protect the environment. In areas where certain animals may thrive, you may have an off-limits area to protect their habitat or their breeding ground. Often, there are no set up campsite areas for you to use, no electricity, and very few facilities. They are perfect for people who are just getting started and want to see what the off-road adventure is all about.

Why Paid Parks May Be Best

4 Wheel BibleIf you look at some of the biggest and best paid off road parks, you will discover there are a lot of features to enjoy. A great example of this is located at Windrock, which can be found in Tennessee. It is an off road park that provides visitors with cabins and more than 300 miles of trails that spread out over more than 72,000 acres of land. It provides virtually every obstacle that you could want and it isn’t the only park that offers these features. As a member, you will have the opportunity to meet others who love the same activities and you can all gather up on the weekends to hang out and have a great time. Some of these parks also offer events throughout the year to ensure that you always feel that you are being challenged to push yourself and your chosen vehicle further.

Protecting the Parks

National ParksIn every case, whether you are venturing into a national park or a private, paid park; there will be rules to entering and in some cases gates to pass through. In the event that you are a paying member of a park, you can expect to have a higher quality security gate like the solar powered driveway gates seen on the driveway gates for sale site. These gates are put in place to not only protect the campground from unwelcome guests, but to ensure that vandalism is kept to a minimum. It also ensures that if you leave your RV behind while you go off in your off-road vehicle, you will know that it will be as you left it when you return. Most national parks or public areas do not promise to protect what is yours and that is perhaps the biggest reason people choose to pay a little more for fun.

De-Bugging the Trails

There is nothing more fun and exciting than off-roading in your jeep. It is a thrill that anyone who doesn’t do it, will never truly understand. There is a certain challenge in it that pits man, machine, and nature together in a unique mixture. However, anytime you combine man and nature, you are bound to also have a few things that are not so enjoyable and every enthusiast can tell you that de-bugging the trails is not always easy.

Things That Buzz and Bite

When off-roading, especially during the warm weather months, it is virtually impossible to avoid mosquitoes and other insects. They seem to attack you and leave itching bites when you are having the most fun. If you stop to take a break or to regroup with fellow adventurers; the bugs swarm you to the point that they drive you insane. It gets even worse if you are attempting to off road in an area that is swampy or heavy rains just fell. It becomes even more torturous if you know that the insects and mosquitoes will follow you home, hiding in your jeep, and then breed in your yard. That is why many off-roaders choose to fight the mosquito infestation of their yard before it ever has a chance to begin. Perhaps this is something you should also consider.

Leave the Bugs Behind When You Go Home

No one wants to spend a weekend getting attacked by insects and then go home to more of the same. Whether you are going to a camp or home, you will have most likely had all of the bites you want to deal with, and you are tired of smelling like insect repellent. In this situation, you really only have one option. Prevent the bugs from getting a grasp on your lawn or your most favorite campsite by using preventative measures to eliminate breeding grounds. This means ensuring that you do not allow standing water to stand long enough to become a breeding ground and keeping the area around your home free of leaves and stuff which will hold water. You may also consider getting a propane mosquito repellent for yard because these devices will catch the mosquitoes that follow you home before they have a chance to multiply.

Enjoy Your Personal, Insect-Free Space

It is not possible to eliminate all insects from your life. No one can promise that you will never receive another mosquito or gnat bite, but we can say that you can lower you chances of being bugged when you are out of the woods and back on the main roads. The person who said that everything has its place was right. Mosquitoes belong in off road areas and you may have to deal with them in that area, but your home is not where they belong. To win, and keep them where they belong; you will have to work at debugging after you get off the trails. It is not going to happen overnight, but by using propane traps and repellents, you can enjoy an outdoor experience that does not include bug bites. Are you ready to be bugged less?

The Ultimate Rig Accessory

It is true that big boys play hard. We are a group of people who enjoy getting out for the weekend and exploring all that we are capable of doing. To us, it does not matter whether the weather is rainy or sunny. We have designed our vehicles to be able to keep up with us, regardless of where we want to go and play on the weekend. Each one of us has our own 4X4 or Jeep and each one of us totally enjoys seeing how far and how hard we can push them.

We Play Rough and Tough

Jeep BumperOur group is not afraid to get a little dirty. We feel that showers and garden hoses are our best friends at the end of the weekend. Therefore, mud bogging and using our Jeeps and 4X4s for what they are designed for, is what we enjoy most. Off-roading, getting our hands dirty, and enjoying extreme camping in remote locations is what we do best. We look at maps and find hidden areas to spend our time. If there are no trails to follow, we are not afraid to take it through the woods. We do it because we love it. We do it because we can, but it wasn’t always that way.

Improving Our Experiences

rearswingAt one time, we were like most other people who enjoyed camping out. We stuck to the trails and we loaded up on the weekends and went to hang out and have a good time. Then, we decided that life could be better if we created vehicles that could go where we wanted to go. That way, we wouldn’t have to be around people who felt they were free to get drunk at campgrounds and become annoying. We began with upgrading our vehicles to be true off-road vehicles. We added high lift jacks, lights, lift kits, bigger tires and everything else we add to them. Life became about creating a bigger and better experience. We pushed ourselves and our vehicles to go where we wanted to go. Most often, it was not where normal people would venture out to. Therefore, we also had to look at tools that did not include our vehicle.

The Most Important Tool

The vehicles we love and cherish were half the battle and the fun. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to out to the areas that we go. Steel bumper bars can push through most anything, but it is not everything you need on a weekend camping trip in the middle of nowhere, near a lake or stream that other people have not managed to get to. We needed to find a way to have a little power for lights on the darkest night when the moon’s light was virtually non-existent. We also wanted to be able to power our smartphones so that we could take advantage of GPS and do other things. This meant we had to find a good camping generator as well. I’ll be the first to admit, without it, our camping trips and off-roading would not be what it is today. For me, it is our ultimate rig accessory because, without it, our lights, radios, and other stuff would not be worth much.


I will be doing clean up on the Ftp part of the server! I don’t plan on deleting anything that will afect this site but….I am deleting old pics and graphics to free up space.

I have mad a back up of everything.

I will be doing this in about 1 month to give everyone notice.

If I frack it up i will fix it but all i can frack up is pics not the forums.


Operation: Bondo-no-more

Phase III (Rocker refab.)


Fixing rust, improperly installed patch panels and rock proofing.

My Scout was damaged in a hail storm and so I decided to Line-X the whole truck.

This proved too expensive…so I wanted to paint it Spitfire Orange.

To do this something had to be done about the front fenders, rockers and quarter panels.


Rockers were cut off and cleaned leaving the rust on was important.
