The video that I showed was on private property with the owner's permission. That trail is his personal trail and he has meetups there at least once a month.
Additionally, as stated there IS legal offroading in the hampton roads area, but not much of it.
--There is a place in VA Beach up near Laskin & VA Beach Blvd that is private property and the owner allows anyone to come on and wheel every friday night starting at 6PM.
--In Chesapeake, there is Rock Rd which is not illegal and the land owners do not care if people are wheeling there before dark.
--Tim RD, I just found out who the real owner is and am working on getting permission to use that land legally.
--RC Airport, where I lost my TJ, is not illegal and I have personally gone back there and cleaned up the trail because some idiot from Moyock was going there to dump tires.
--Finally, there is Lee Hall in Hampton. That is not illegal, but as stated people going out there and trashing the place and being there all hours of night may make it become illegal. There is a club that wheels it pretty regularly and they are making a point to work with the city and the apartment complex next door to keep it open and available.
So before people jump to conclusions, maybe more information would be necessary. I have shared the locations of with y'all for Tim Rd and Rock Rd because they are very well known spots around here. Tim Rd the police do hassle people because there was a club that had permission about 6 years ago and those people didn't listen to the owner and dumped trash and trespassed in other areas they were not supposed to go. Rock Rd, very well known spot, haven't ever heard of police hassle there, and the company that owns the land doesn't care if people are there. heck it's their dump site.

Somebody is riding on their high horse...
I agree that respect should be paid to the natural environment, which means staying on the trail and leaving the trail just as clean as it was (if not cleaner) before your arrival. I am a solid believer in minimizing damage and disturbance to the natural habitat and creatures/organisms on and around the trail.
However, to think that people just aren't going to go offroad here around Hampton Roads in unrealistic. If it is your opinion and practice to only wheel where it is specifically stated as legal then that is your preference, but don't judge others for doing otherwise. If efforts have been made to keep vehicles out then its not somewhere I will go, but if it is clearly accepted (such as Rock Rd) then I see no problems with it. If the owner doesn't care that people are using his company's land to go wheeling on then why should you?
I am aware that public lands are being closed and irresponsible actions give our sport a bad name, but eventually enough of this will cause a privatization of offloading lands and more ORV parks will open up creating even more room for our sport to grow. At least that is what I would like to see happen...

this whole thread is full of fail.
there are no public wheeling spots in southeast va.
if you dont have permission from the property owner, you are wrong.
apparently the mods here dont subscribe to that theory, or this (and alot of other threads) would have been locked long ago.

If it was just engine damage, then I'm surprised they totaled it. I would think the value of most TJs would outweigh the cost of putting in a new 4.0.
Anyhow, good luck with the search. You going to be looking for anything different this time? Maybe an LJ?

|Kidduhh||Damn Charles. You only had that one for like a month...|

|freonburn||Totaled. Time to start searching for the next one.|
