One of their favorite hang outs was behind the TGIF on west main just east of 131.
I dont know if this is where this truck is stuck at, but its a good place to start[/QUOTE]

I would bet money this is where it is at. A lot of poeple tell me to go out there and wheel. I always tell them it is illegal. They always say everyone else is out there so it is ok. Or we will go at nite when no one is around it will be ok.

It seems like they should sell there junk and buy a college education. Then in a few years they could afford to wheel legaly and not wreck it for the rest of us.

Beat their ass, trash their rigs, and then call the cops.

Lighten up a little guys.



We ALL were young and stupid at one time. Live and let learn.





Things have a way of working themselves out.





Leave it to the property owner to pursue trespassing charges. Is it really your concern?


I dont condone illegal wheeling, but you wont see me rushing to contact the "5-0" if I see some kids wheeling in the ditch.

True, I was young and dumb like that once and honestly if it wasnt for the cops being called and almost getting in a shit load of trouble I probably would still be doing it.

YES, it is ALL of our concern when this casts a bad light on those who wheel legally and are dealing with public land being shut down to wheeling on a daily basis.

It may not directly effect you, but it affects the sport as a whole.

I did a lot of stupid stuff when I was youger, if I wasnt pointed in the right direction I would still be doing it. If they didnt learn from a $450 doller ticket I have no pitty for them. They are just stupid.

There is a offroad park in kzoo called kids in the mud, just for these activities.
$450 would most likely buy a season pass for their whole group.
f them and thier excuses that dont add up.

Hey lighten up. Drinking and driving doesn't really hurt anyone. We all did it when we were younger. You know, live and learn. No big deal. It won't hurt anyone. They're young and will figure it out.

Hey lighten up. People using high capacity magazines in shootings are in the minority. Gun violence is a small percentage of deaths in the U.S. People are just over reacting........ no big deal........... really, nothing will come of it. Things have a way of working themselves out.

In case you hadn't heard, our public lands are getting shut down all around us. Anything the anti's can use to use against us, they will. These kids have been told and they are still doing it. It might be time for a little more expensive education.

Sorry, no sympathy for them on my end. As Al mentioned he has posted comments on their FB group, he and I have swapped PMs and posts with them on another 4x4 forum, obviously not making any kind of impression on them. I don't know how aggressively the DNR & local law enforcement follow up on leads like this, but heard a rumor that DNR was provided with a link to their FB map showing all of their preferred illegal wheeling locations.

What's your home address and best time for me to stop by when you're not home? I've got some new tires I want to try out and your yard would suit me fine. I'll be in and out in 5-10 minutes, and won't disturb you.

No worries, right?

Yeah, tell that to my neighbor who's had his field ripped up a few times over the past few months by similar mouth breathing morons. Oddly enough, they don't leave their contact info behind to repair the damages. So you should be ok with that, too, right?

Then who does? If these guys don't get in trouble more, they will keep doing it, ruining it for the rest of us.

No butt hurt here, I just wanted to see quick you would change your tune if it was happening to you. It's always ok for people to f'up other people's stuff, but watch the back pedaling when it has personal consequences.

I play mall cop in my neighborhood because who says the window lickers that rip up the field across from my house won't decide that my yard looks equally tempting? I like driving down to the corner store in the summer. I don't need everybody between here and there thinking I'm the local cornfield killer.

I agree, if a $450 ticket didn't slow them down, time for the big hammer to fall. I did enough stupid crap when I was younger to realize when it was time to do it the right way, I'd say the same time is now for this group.
I only needed 1 $75 DNR citation to figure it out, if you don't after $450 you are some kind of stupid in my book.
