    trail riding/ exploring is my all time favorite!

    I grew up near a creek and had 4 wheelers and go carts. So as a kid thats how we spent each night and day, wheeling in the creek and following it for miles, setting up camp and pretending to be campers out in the wilderness. Now that im 29 I still find it exciting and fun, going down roads and trails that arent visited to often, and just exploring areas that most people cant see

    Am I the only wuss when it comes to shelf roads? I mean, I'm in Colorado...

    I white-knuckle the steering wheel if there's a steep cliff on either side of me. Therefore, I prefer low-land muddin'.

    Sand is the best in my opinion and my favorite four wheeling. It can be challenging because there are so many different types of sand... beach (Pacific or Gulf in my case), desert, dunes, arroyos (washes)... The humidity affects drivability on it as well. What is great is that if you do get stuck, it is clean... just dig out and let more air out of the tires and drive out!

    trails/exploring for me, just not many places in MD to do this, (still searching though). want to add trip to CO to bucket list but looks like an ark is more appropriate than a 4x4 right now. agree on backyard for a choice, all i can do for now is pose.:cool:

    Trail riding and exploring are my favorite, although I do enjoy watching rock climbs and mudding. Nothing more relaxing and stress-free then taking the trail home! Good thing we have lots of trails in the U.P.

    My offroading is associated with bowhunting, so basically I'm driving through dirt, mud, or deep snow to get back into my hunting area. It does require 4-wheel drive for most of the area I'm talking about.

    I'm driving a prerunner here, and yes it has gotten me through a LOT, more than most people would believe, however now that I've grown out of destroying my daily driver and with over 100k miles on it. I prefer to run through nice desert roads, sandy beaches, and some slow crawling... No more killing my truck over jumps and high speed racing anymore
