Now, I don't think brookhaven lab donated property to the state.
I thought I read it somewhere , but apparently not . I tried to google it, to get the facts. ...found nothing.
Sorry for the mistake.
But still, there is a lot Pine Barrens on the island. I'm sure they can find some place for us to 4 wheel if we keep pressure on them.
This would bring revenue. Personally, I would like at least 2000-2500 acres or more.

|Fun sized||What about taking the squatter approach? I know Brookhaven lab is on William Floyd Parkway, where exactly is this land they donated? What if we just show up there and occupy the land for a day. Lots of big lifted jeeps and other 4x4s all converging on the same spot could make an impression. Or since that's probably trespassing, we could just convoy up and down Wm. Floyd.|

How would we get the word out to all the legal 4x4 vehicles on Long Island?
We might have more turnout if we stay on the Island. Not everyone could make the trip to Albany. Work, the kids, etc...
Is there any other place on the Island the rally could be held? Maybe in the center, ...like Riverhead? We could just totally flood the town with 4X4's!

|nmarchiselli||I see some major potential in this movement. I see tons of jeeps on the roads around the island there's gotta be a ton of support|

|local15Rob||Absolutely , I'm in! Let's get organized.|

|Fun sized||County level may be a better start. I'm sure News 12 would give it coverage|

|66fordman||I have Been following Your posts. NY State already makes a boatload of cash for the beach permits..It seems logical they would make more for a more traditional off road area. I have been to My local Senators office at the capital(Kemp Hannon)twice in the past. He has always Been receptive. I will call his office and find out when a good time is to rally Albany. We don't want to plan a rally when they are in recess.This would have to go to The Nassau and Suffolk Town Supervisors as well as The County Supervisors. If anyone thinks this is a good start, let Me know! I don't want to be the only one on the Capital steps with My ball joints hanging out!!|

|nmarchiselli||I'm all for storming Albany maybe even make it an off-road trip up near Albany so we can get all muddy before we make our point|
|07-28-2014 07:28 AM|
a couple weeks ago, I would research who to contact in Albany about our beach pass being only half season at Smith Point, because of the Piping Clover.
We need a place on State ground to 4 wheel drive trails on legal property, and I suggest the old brookhaven lab property, that was just recently donated to the state of New York.
the person to contact in Albany is First Assemblyman Palumbo.
by the way, I like the idea of storming Albany with all Jeeps and I off roading vehicles to show we mean business on Long Island. We need legal land for trails!

|local15Rob||I will look up when the next fishing show is and ask those guys some questions. Good idea!|
|07-22-2014 02:42 PM|
I'm from Long Island too (just signed up on WF today). I don't know much about this new land that opened up, but I love the idea of creating designated wheeling areas. As far as beach driving goes, I know LIBBA seems to be very organized and fought Albany for a lot of the small amount of beach access we do have. Maybe reach out to LIBBA for advice?
Are there any organized off roading clubs on the island?

|local15Rob||How about we storm Albany with a huge convoy of jeeps and off-road vehicles to show the that we mean business . Letters and emails will help , but news worthily shit is what helps. We should have a voice when it comes to the money that we pay in taxes on Long Island . If we protest and volunteer to help build this space ,maybe they will give us one.|

Once I find out who to email in Albany , we should all send an email to that person and tell him/her how badly we need a recreational area for our jeeps that is legal here on the island.

|local15Rob||I Completely agree . It would give the people that live on the Island, and PAY TAXES on the Island and opportunity to enjoy the pass time that they love, without having to travel 3 to 4 hours every time they want to wheel. Also the events and family time is also on key. More businesses would open on the island for off-roading . All positives!!|
|07-12-2014 06:21 AM|
I think all the Jeeps should get together and write to Albany about making the new land that was just donated by the brookhaven lab, should be used for trails when the birds are nesting on the beach.
We have to write to Albany, because it is state ground. We must all write and request that this land be used for recreational 4 wheel drive use.
Long Island needs it. It will bring tourism . Maybe even Jeep Jamboree will come here! !

Can anyone recommend the best mirrors for removing the doors. I won't do it frequently so I am thinking mirrors that mount to the door hinges make the most sense.

|Ampd X||This is sad news. I was hoping to find somewhere on the island to off road. I think there are some trails upstate in Sullivan county. About a 3 hour drive. Being from Long Island, I would also be interested in a local club if anyone knows of one.|
|03-28-2014 03:45 AM|
|local15Rob||We do live on a island, so any real off roading will be West or North of us. Sand is what you will find on this island. You will find some spots, but they are not legal anyway. Stick to the beaches and keep your jeep out of impound. With good weather coming they will be looking for us in the good spots anyway. And if you find a good spot,keep your mouth shut and don't post it. Other folks my have the same spot, don't ruin it!|
