Well, not tho that extreme but close enough just respect others property rights. No one likes to find another car parked in one's parking spot. Kinda the same thing. although, it does suck that we do not have an official off-road park anywhere near. Maybe that's what we need to concentrate on instead of riding someone's land. Just a though. Pm me if want to do something about it. Might as well try

I know you didn't mean to cause a stir but true wheelers take this subject very seriously.

No biggie.. Out here where I am landowners Tell the cops to prosecute anyone who they catch tresspassing. Usually the po-po end up writing citations with some pretty hefty fines.

Redsand Illinois just needs to let people wheel on state land like Indiana does so they can make money off of it, but since that makes since you know they won't do it. Kinda like letting people license 4 wheeler, etc for back roads

2000jk This is exactly why I want to move to the UK, green laning is legal as long as you aren't harming anyones property. I don't see the harm in driving through a vacant lot behind an industrial park where the only witnesses are tress. And when you're a broke college student who can't afford the gas to drive to cliffs or badlands I take what I can get but I always respect the land I'm on.

Are you a part of this group? Or know if they're on Facebook or something? Would love to be a part of them...I'm in Frankfort. Looking for places to off road! And some people to go with.

60mg We have a group Jeep Almighty that's out of Palatine. We're not crazy active and by far have a closed FB group and a public page, and a blog www.jeepalmighty.com. Everything is still in development phase. In any case, we're not really a CLUB but a group of people who wheel together from time to time and use FB functionality to announce events and post reports and pictures. If interested, shoot me an email, so you'll be getting alerts when we go somewhere.
