joemd60 05-12-2009 12:43 PM

G-Pur 05-12-2009 02:41 PM

DJeep98 05-13-2009 03:54 PM

DJeep98 05-13-2009 05:05 PM

What kind of wheeling is it? Mud, rocks?

DJeep98 05-14-2009 06:44 AM

Never been there, it a state forest in Hopkinton NH, Hopkinton - Everett Lakes OHV Trails, Merrimack County New Hampshire ATV Trails

G-Pur 05-14-2009 10:00 AM

Great, Sunday is better for me anyway.

joemd60 05-14-2009 05:52 PM

Now let me tell you what I learned at the Lancaster meet and greet. First it was a great time, second they had a mud trail down back and I had fun watching but would have liked to participate.
So what I learned was there were some very capable jeeps that either got stuck or could not make it up the muddy rut filled hill, although I am sure to some extent it attributed to driver error.;)
Than there were the brave few that attempted it with stock jeeps with the wrong tires and failed miserably, than had to be winched out .:D So my point is, this sounds fun as long as you or we are all aware of what we will be driving through.
NH can be a long hike back to MA. with a jeep attached to a wrecker or no jeep at all.:D

DJeep98 05-15-2009 08:08 AM

You definetely have a point there, but don't wheel with your eyes closed...
I know it doesn't sound good but worst case you can always turn around, plus if we're gonna have two or three rigs we can pull each other out.

Sounds good DJ.:)

DJeep98 05-21-2009 06:22 AM

So how many candidates do we have??? Again its gonna be SUNDAY 24th...

joemd60 05-21-2009 08:22 AM

It's my Mother's B-Day but I may still go, where and what time is the meeting spot?

DJeep98 05-21-2009 12:36 PM

Well I want to go as early as posible, plus I don't know where's everyone is from. We can meet at the first Liquer\rest area on (93N) Any other sugestions??

joemd60 05-22-2009 09:51 AM

I am coming from Worcester, naturally I will be taking 495N to 93N. So any point off 93 to meet is fine. I hope more guys from the area would like to go, it would be nice to see a few more jeeps.

DJeep98 05-22-2009 10:26 AM

Well I'm in Wayland\Natick area, so I'll be taking 95 to 93.
We can meet at that REST AREA\LIQUER SORE (NH liquer sore)
Yeah see so far we don't have that many people ahh... but I'm going anyway. Got to have fun...

joemd60 05-22-2009 11:05 AM

How about giving an exit no. in MA. off 93 and maybe we can meet there. I am not familiar with the liquor store off 93 in NH.

DJeep98 05-22-2009 12:59 PM

Yeah we can meet up there, make sure you look at that link I put up earlier, and look at the direction for the off road trails, because it's a little different than the entrance for the park it self. If I"m not misstaken its some where of off RT13...
I plan to be there around 11'30 esh...
by the way what color is your jeep?

G-Pur 05-22-2009 03:44 PM

I'll see you guys at the entrance at 11:30. I'm assuming that we'll meet at the spot on the link that you put up DJ?

joemd60 05-22-2009 04:44 PM

I assume we are meeting there, my jeep is black. It is about and hour and forty minutes from my house so I hope to see you guys there. I will wait at the entrance for you guys.:)

DJeep98 05-23-2009 08:29 AM

Super, we'll meet there arond 11"30 ish...

joemd60 05-23-2009 09:21 AM

Should I wash my jeep first.:D

DJeep98 05-23-2009 01:38 PM

ofcouse...

G-Pur 05-23-2009 06:24 PM

I want mud pictures after the run. It's my first run, so I need to have some non-poser shots.

joemd60 05-24-2009 10:54 AM

So I sit here at Franklin Falls Dam and discover, those directions are completely wrong. So I guess I drove an hour and 45 minutes and missed you guys.

joemd60 05-24-2009 12:22 PM

I have an update, it pays to make some calls before venturing into the unknown. I spoke to Park Ranger in Hopkinton NH. And he said the Hopkinton Everett Lakes is not for jeeps, only ATV's. What an awful waste of fuel,time, and what could have been a fun day.

G-Pur 05-24-2009 01:45 PM

dude, we both drove to the parking lot entrance to the trails. Yes it definitely was a waste. I think we're going to try another place next weekend. Perhaps someplace closer. I heard there were trails out by saugus

joemd60 05-24-2009 01:56 PM

Don't trust the webs directions either. It is best to call to verify, the directions on the website are trails... Bicycle trails.
