Yes. Steve, correct me if I am wrong, but I think Rosco and yourself attended VJA Annual Campout and Picnic last year at the Plymouth State Park. We could ride in that same area that my father and I took everyone for the club ride. It is only about 15 minutes away.

Hi, My name is Andrea..new here as of today. I don't belong to a club...have only had my Jeep for a couple of months.

But I'm very interested in learning more--don't want to get in over my head. Never off-roaded before (still have stock tires).

I'd like access to all of the groups if possible.

Thank you!

Hi Andrea,

Unfortunately the areas that you wish to gain access to are restricted to the club's members of the NEA. I would love to grant you acces if you join one of these clubs.

You may think it may be too much $$$$ but the clubs average only $40 per year, have a wealth of knowledge, and can show you mild trails for your stock rig. The club's also have regular scheduled events and typically allow at least one trail ride for free before joining.

Scott,

I thought that I might have to join a club to read other posts. I am also under the impression that I need to modify my Jeep first (new tires, maybe lift, etc.) in order to qualify.

And that in itself is another problem..where to begin!?

Here is my advise. Join NEWJO or another club that does rides on Class VI roads for stock vehicles. We can send you to a good shop to modify your Jeep. Donenics Auto and Jeep in Hampstead, NH or Elias 4WD Center in Townsend, MA. I have had work done at both shops and had great service. When those guys modify a Jeep it is done right.

Andrea,

First of all welcome. Many of our clubs have opportunities for stock vehicles. You'd definitely want to consider making mods if you plan to get into the sport but you don't have to do that immediately. A good place to start would be to join a club. I am a member of Deep Woods Extreme in NH. I am not sure where you are located. Clubs can help you learn about the sport and about what mods to make for your vehicle. I was in DWE for almost 10 years before I had my own vehicle. We have a pretty good group of stock and less modified vehicles and even some of our more modified guys are looking to do some milder wheeling again.

I would recommend speaking with Domenic Pono-Domenic's Auto & Jeep. His number is 603-329-9439 and you can catch him M-Thur around this time of year he goes snowmobiling in Rangely on the weekends. He can definitely recommend what you should do with your Jeep and he does the work too. He is very well known and respected both in this community and the outside customers that he serves.

Feel free to PM me or e-mail me-tammyllucke@verizon.net anytime for info.

Hi Steve,

I'm glad to see you've stopped by our little home. Unfortunately the areas that you wish to gain access to are restricted to the club's members of the NEA. These forums are the working areas for the NEA's land access teams. If you require information about various land issues I'd be more than happy to discuss them with you.

We are always accepting new clubs as members. Membership is only $5 per member and gains access onto NEA land as well as representation on a state, regional, and national level. For more information on membership

We currently only have one member club that is based out of NY so that is why that forum is pretty quiet-but we would love to have more!

Welcome Andrea! First off let me say congratulations on picking the "high road" and taking an interest in responsible off-highway recreation.

Secondly, let me dispell what these jokers are telling you. You don't HAVE to do anything to your Jeep. You could certainly leave it mostly stock and have a blast on any number of occasions. I would recommend that at the least you find yourself a set of more aggressive all-terrain tires. It will certainly make you life a little easier and your trips more fun. Sets can usually be found used and at a good price in places like the classified section on the forums at {url]www.NEOW.org[/url]. You'll also want to get some minimum safety items like a recovery strap, basic tools, a jack, first aid kit, and a small fire extinguisher.

Lastly, as most people here have said, a club is a great way to meet new people and learn the ropes in a safe, educational, and fun environment. I tihnk I can safely say that ALL the clubs that make up the NEA are full of great people. The question is which one fit your needs, location, and abilities the best. On that note, a few good choices for you may be Baystate Jeepers, The newest NEA club New England Jeepz, or Freedom TrailRiders (a shameless plug for my own club :D ) Each of these clubs have their own website, usually host some kind of publiclly open events (meet & Greets, open trail rides, etc) and would be more than willing to answer questions or have you along for a ride.

All in all, you're heading in the right direction. :up: good luck on your quest, and hope to see you on the trails.

Hi Andrea - please also feel free to check out NEJeep. We are an all Jeep club with lots of very experienced Jeepers as well as new wheelers. Most of our members start out like you and you'd be surprised at what a stock Jeep can do. We do wrench fests and the guys will help you with installs and where to start when you're ready to start modifying.

Also keep in mind, being a good wheeler is about the driver's skill before the rig capabilities. It is always advisable to understand how to drive off-road and know your rig before modifying.

Most of our membership is based in CT but we do have members in MA, RI, and NY. Our events right now are held in MA and NH and we do a lot of camping weekends. And we have a lot of female wheelers and wives/girlfriends that attend 8)

Our forums are free so stop by and say hello.
