No Limits Jeep Club!
 
Hey all in the MD area! Me and a few of my buddies are trying to get a new club started. We are going to be called the No Limits Jeep Club or either No Limit Jeepers, have not decided yet... Im trying to see how much interest there is in a new club in this area... Let me know what you think. This thread will be a general discussion for trail rides/meeting/wrenching and just get togethers if we can get this thing off the ground. This is not the only forum this will be on so make sure to come out and meet everyone once we get this thing off the ground :wavey:

That sounds cool! Where in Maryland are you guys mostly?

No Limit Jeepers sounds better, but that is just my opinion.

Militaryman4455 09-07-2010 04:19 PM

Cool, either sounds good to me! We are all over, from Frederick to hagerstown and some up near Greenridge National forest and other places as well... I dont know of any on this forum... Most of them are on Jeep forum.... I was banned from there because of a dispute with some mods but I promise Im a good guy :D

phantomofrussia 09-07-2010 04:21 PM

Gotcha I am not that far then I guess living in Rockville(there really should be more rocks here but there isnt :( )

When I get my Wrangler I will join. :)

CapptainObvious 09-07-2010 04:23 PM

I'm down to check it out. Been trying to find people to wheel with and somewhere to do it.

Militaryman4455 09-07-2010 04:24 PM

I know where there are plenty of places with rocks... One club Im in has exclusive access to a place called blue ridge with some buggy level rock crawling as well as smaller things for stockers... There is always Rausch Creek and there is a new place called the Hagerstown trails.

rubicon07 11-06-2010 09:47 PM

I am in. Let me know. I am in Baltimore. I have a 98 TJ and a 2008 JK rubicon.

No limits is automatically placing limits on the limits of time and space. Why don't you call it something less limited.:bottom:

Militaryman4455 11-09-2010 11:27 AM

That doesnt make much sense to me but we have been playing with other names too.... Off Camber Jeep Nuts, Roll 'em if ya got 'em and a few others that I cant think of right now.

TJe0454 11-16-2010 10:46 AM

URascal 11-27-2010 08:37 PM

Count me in, I'm in Hancock. Always looking for someone to go with, got Greenridge in me back yard.

I live in Columbia, it's been pretty hard to find legal places to jeep, any suggestions? What's close by, for stock fun. I haven't put much money into my jeep yet.

Nothing.

There are not any local legal wheeling areas.

Bloody Ponds in Glen Burnie, Yellowgates in Crofton, Coca Cola Drive off Rt 100, and the old Land Rover Test Track in Upper Marlboro all are illegal and off limits. Even Trails Rd was nearly closed when locals put up a gate to block access except for locals. The issue is that people (predominately not jeepers, use these places for illegal dumping of trash. Bloody Ponds and Yellowgates were used as dumping areas for stolen cars from Baltimore City. Coca Cola drive is acually owned by two separate entities: CSX Railroad and Howard County; that property is currently in development. The Land Rover test course was closed back in 1997 when they built their own course down off MLK Blvd in Lanham.

That being said, here's the post I end up putting up about twice a month. If you are wheeling on "the stream by the bent tree with a beer can in it," then it is more than likely Private Property. If you do not have expressed written permission to be on said bent tree beer can stream, then you are trespassing.

If you want to wheel, support the sport, visit an offroad park today.

Here's a list that has been put together over the last 15 years or so:

MARYLAND

Assateague Island, Worcester County, MD
National Park Service - Requested Page Not Found (404) (U.S. National Park Service)
Yearly permit required ($70). The area consists of 12 miles of sand beach within Maryland and additional beach South into Virginia. It should be stressed that this is nothing more than flat sand.

Green Ridge State Forest, Allegany County, MD
Welcome to the DNR Forest Service - Green Ridge State Forest home page
Green Ridge State Forest offers an 18-mile loop trail located on East Valley and Stafford Roads for off-road vehicles. It should be noted that this trail is a non-technical fire road.

PENNSYLVANIA

Rausch Creek Offroad Park - Joliett, PA (in the area of Tower City & Tremont)
Rausch Creek Off Road Park
A yearly membership fee of $10 is required. This membership fee applies to all drivers and all passengers. Once you are a member, the price to wheel at the park is $35 per day, per vehicle, and $5 per day for passengers. Rausch Creek offers over 1000 acres of terrain for wheeling. Trails range from stock through highly technical.

Rock Run Recreation Area - Western Pa
Western PA 4x4 Trail Advisory Committee :: Index
On site primitive camping will be available for those instances.

The members of the Advisory Committee will be coordinating all trail rides; please do not contact the park for OHV information (they will direct you back to us). The WPA4XTRAC will provide trail guides. Trail rides are limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration for all events is required.

We will offer three trail rides each day: green/low blue, blue/low black, and upper black. We do not have a red trail rating, but we certainly have trails that would garner a red rating at other parks. The trails were cut with smaller SUVs in mind (such as Jeep Grand Cherokees). Full size vehicles will find the trails to be very tight. Suggested equipment is as follows:
Green/low blue: stock vehicles and those with a mild lift (15 vehicles per trailride)
Blue/low black: 33” tires and at least one locker (10 vehicles per trailride). Potential for body and drivetrain damage.
Upper Black: 35” tires(minimum requirement), two lockers, and winch. Body and drivetrain damage are very possible. (15 vehicles per trailride)
To register for one of our trail rides, please include your name, address, phone number, trail selection, club (if applicable) and general vehicle specifics to dan58@marylandcreepers.com. The cost is $25/day plus $5 for passengers. Primitive camping is $10, and you must notify us 1-week prior to camping. Staging for trailrides begins at 0900, with a short drivers’ meeting following.


VIRGINIA

George Washington National Forest - Harrisonburg, VA
George/recreation/ohv/index.shtml
George Washington National Forest (GWNF) offers miles of offroad vehicle travel on its forest service roads. These roads are largely non-technical fire roads however they offer wonderful weekend camping activities.

Crozet - Crozet, VA
http://www.xjsrule.com
Run by Chris and Heather Packard, the site of the Virginia RockCrawling and Offroad Challenge is opened periodically throughout the year for opening wheeling. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Big Dogs Offroad - Gore, VA
Home
A fee of $75 applies for 3 days or $65 for 2 days. The area is open 4 times a year for seasonal wheeling events. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Other Notable Areas

Wharton State Forest- Pine Barrens, New Jersey
Department of Environmental Protection
Flat, sand, water, mud.

Uwharrie National Forest - Troy, NC
Uwharrie Off
A fee of $5 per day or $30 per year applies. Individual trails vary in length from 1.2 miles to 3.4 miles, but the ORV area networks the trails that they may be connected in series of un-recrossed lengths of up to about 20 miles. Trails range from stock to highly technical.

ellman605 01-30-2011 06:25 PM

Id be down but seemed this failed.

Militaryman4455 02-06-2011 11:26 PM

Sorry guys! I just dont get on here very often. Im more on JKOwners and Pirate.... If ya'll really wanna do a meet then lets get one together! I would prefer to meet in Frederick but I guess we can take a vote.

Ill post up 3 places I know of that seem to be decent places and we can figure it out from there...

1. Hard times Cafe and cue in Frederick MD (can meet at other business if this is a problem)
2. Hard times Cafe and cue in Hagerstown MD (can meet at other business if this is a problem)
3. For a meet and greet/ trail ride we could always do GreenRidge in Cumberland

Just vote 1, 2, or 3 and then we will get a date set... If we have enough attention we could do it this saturday... Also, here is my face book. Just add me and write me a message and I will add you to the MD Jeepers group on there. It was started by my friends and we mostly know each other.

You do realize that hagerstown is closer to greenridge right? :thumb:

So far frederick hard times has vote and if we decide to go wheeling it will be at greenridge... Lets get some more opinions and then we'll start to make a list.

I meant that if I had to choose between Hagerstown and Frederick, my vote is Frederick. I live in Baltimore. I'd be down to wheel Greenridge too.
