Little short on the fine there^
MGL Chapter 90 Section 121A.
Whoever, without right, enters upon the private land of another, whether or not such land be posted against trespass, and in so entering makes use of or has in his immediate possession or control any vehicle, machine, or device which includes an internal combustion engine or other source of mechanical power, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $500.
If it's a local PD, your probably looking at the fine + an offroad tow bill of $250+ and storage on top of that.
If your nailed by MassEP, especially in an "environmentally protected" area you could loose your Jeep entirely as they can confiscate the vehicle as an "instrument of the crime" and seek forfeiture. Even if they loose at the forfeiture hearing, your jeep will be in impound for a year+ until all trial proceedings are over.
Just food for thought.
