maybe if you think of canada as only the soo. Canada is a big country and has lots of trails as good as the south.


honestly I would rather go to sault ste marie than places down south sometimes. The trussel park is getting really good after the work they have put into it. plus there is a lot more up there that hasn't even been found yet, I'm sure. I prefer wilderness wheeling over well worn in park trail anyday also.

Im Cool with the No Pants thing. Is it pants optional or just take them off when you feal like it? I dig it either way. We have a guy in our group that is naked about half the time when he has a few cocktails by the fire. No big deal, really. After my build is done im open to going more places. Just gota plan so i gots the funds

True, I haven't been to deep into Canada and like I said, what I did see was beautiful.
Might have to plan a trip. I just need to figure out how to get warm weather without the black flies.

I look at southern wheeling and the scenery and trails the same way I look at those unwilling to travel to canada and the up and just bitch that michigan sucks.

Michigan has some very fun trails that can challenge many rigs, as does canada, and badlands, and harlan, and tellico, and tennessee, and missouri, and colorado, and utah, and......

x2. places like the Soo, or DI are close enough that I can leave in the early morning and be wheeling before dinner.


Granted, if you have a real aversion to cold or mud, then, well, living in the wrong state, aren't we?

Another reason I switched back to building a full bodied rig. I like snow wheeling and sloppy wheeling in greasy mud is always fun.

I'm not much into driving into bottomless holes at the mounds, but real trails out in the forests/swamps/etc, it adds an fun element.

I've never even once considered those places to wheel mainly because we don't hear much about them, most of their websites suck as far as info, and what pics i've seen don't ever show "moderate" terrain.

After reading that there are lots of moderate trails down south i'm much more inclined to check them out, as i don't have some extreme machine.

I've wanted to hit the badlands for a long time because, "theyhave something for everyone", plus i heard great things and seen some sweet pics.

almost nobodies pictures will even show moderate terrain because when looking though pictures online most people find them somewhat boring unless they are scenic. So most people will never put them up. Offroad parks usually don't put up mild parts either because they don't want people to think "thats the best they have and its not worth driving there for"

Comfort zones make me

But then again, my stock LR Disco on 31s didn't have a straight panel left on it after I wheeled the piss outta it for a year during one of my jeep builds just to cure the itch.

I guess the point of all this is: If you enjoy the outdoors and the sport of wheeling, you owe it to yourself to see the gorgeous terrain all over the country. No matter where you go, there is something for every rig level. If you've never traveled out of state, do it! Push past whatever mental restrictions you're placing on yourself and prepare to be wowed by places other than "home".

I've been told by a few seasoned wheelers to run whatever you have and learn how to wheel before dumping a ton of money into the rig because the mods you do you might not like or may not fit your driving technique.

Also I figure most don't venture over to full size bronco.com much but most of those guys are grow the west side of the country. There are tones of photos from there trail rides that make ya drool and go shwing.
