    Just moved up here in Jan, I live right outside Bar Harbor. I usually go wheeling up on Stud Mill Rd., sometimes in the summer I do the roads off of Rt 9.

    Ah, the Stud Mill... I have many fuzzy yet fond memories from out there. It makes me miss my UMaine days.

    Anybody do any wheeling in southern Maine? Berwicks? I'm originally from Elliot, and live right across the border in in Dover. Keep meaning to ask Archie from Archie's Offroad in Wells if his crew is ever headed out, but haven't been up there in awhile.

    Anybody following/got any updates on the progress of Wicked Hills off-road park up in China? I've had his site bookmarked for a while now but no updates on the site since Sept. 2012. Would LOVE to see another facility open in Maine--especiially in that neck of the woods!

    Hi. Just moved to the Auburn area last summer. I would like to go wheeling before the brush sprouts.

    Also, I have to take this opportunity to shamelessly promote my stuff for sale. I left the workforce to pursue a degree and need to drum up some cash. Plus, I am transferring and can't afford to drive the taco to portland every day. :(

    First time posting in this section, I think. Home from work for the weekend and went for ride last night when I got home. Found a big snowdrift on the way up to some ponds that I like to fish. Today I wanted to get past the drift. Dug out about 25 to 30 feet of it. Drove on top of it for another 30 to 40. A nice little valley opens up to the northwest of the and winter winds piled the snow deep. First one in this year, but the ice isn't out yet. Another week.

    Saw on the New England BS thread a group was up in Lewiston yesterday. Lots of water and mud to play in. :)

    I'll have to check that thread out. I try to stay away from mud when I'm out by myself. Snow is easy when you get stuck. Just dig it all out and you are good. Mud can require an extra vehicle though.

    Crossed a place where the water was running across the road. Went back after I crossed to keep the water from going down my tracks to save the road, but all I found was water running right under the surface. The more I poked around the worse it got. Wouldn't want to be the second guy through this spot. First Picture.

    Found a place a couple weeks ago that almost swallowed my truck. Got lucky only half the road was soup. Lost a mud flap in there though.

    Looks like a good time! Yeah, it's hard to push your truck knowing you might get stuck and not have any back up.

    I keep an eye on this website: http://www.4x4groupbuy.com/store/index.php
    They have a storefront in Auburn.

    I know there is a popular shop in Portland I've never been to. And my go-to guy Archie is in Wells.
