The Plymouth Run

So I'm curious what others think

My club is looking at passing on this weekends Plymouth Run - it seems the trails are a muddy mess, and we are expecting a week of rain beforehand. I am unfortunately, the only mud bug amongst a group of rock crawlers. The thought process is (and of course should always be) Tread Lightly -

How do my fellow forum dwellers feel on this point? feel free to chime in, I'm "conflicted"

OK really, 24 hours and no one has an opinion? we can chat endlessly about regearing, covering the topic ad nauseum week after week but no one has an opinion about mud?

Here is the bigger point - organized jeep event. private land with owners permission. I am led to believe that shooting rooster tails of mud into the air is *bad* and on public land I agree. But on private land as part of an organized event, I fail to see why it is bad or should be avoided. Tread Lightly is used everywhere, and was used in deciding to postpone going until another date. I would never be "that guy" tearing up the countryside illegally, but I don't see the issue on private property with consent - it may have been all those years on a dirt bike.

OK rant over - proceed now and tell me what an insensitive A hole I am

PS Is anyone going to the Plymouth Run this weekend? I may just go if anything to see the other rigs

the Plymouth run was canceled do to too much mud,, if i had seen your post i would have replied sooner,, remember a lot of the land is private and we don't want to loose our rite of passage. you should have come out to Toland Sunday,, it was awesome.

there are no trails 'close' to boston. you have to drive a bit, toland mass has nice trails. also westfeild has some nice ones, other than that you need to drive to NH or ME. find a local jeep club, north country in NH, new england jeeps here in mass,.
i'll be heading back out to toland in a few weeks. i'll give you a shout when i know the date. and thanks for serving our fine country.
