Re: Maryland wheeling spot
I'm currently a member of that club. I was one of 27 vehicles to get ticketed for "operating an offroad vehicle (which includes tagged vehicles, thanks to a change in that law) without written permission from the landowner." To say it was a "misunderstanding" got all of us, except the club founder/leader, out of anything more than a court appearance - in my opinion, of course. I hold a different view of the whole situation. With that said, that club has hopes of establishing an offroad park in MD.
There are no offroad parks like Paragon or Rauch Creek in MD. There are some dirt roads in western MD that are considered legal "offroad trails" that a Honda could pass through. Outside of those, there are NO LEGAL AREAS to offroad in MD unless you have written permission from the land owner.
That said, there are a couple of spots, the one in Crofton/Odenton, and one up in Pasadena, that folks routinely wheel ILLEGALLY. Has my point gotten across yet? Best bet, talk offline to folks you see running around in built rigs. Someone's bound to give you some info. It won't be me though - I'm glad I got off lightly with my run in.
