    I have that wheelin itch that I just gotta scratch! The NECK5ers haven't done anything in long time. It would be great to get everyone together for a trail ride. Most of the wheelin spots I frequent have been slowly fenced in and smoothed out. The only places I still know of is a pit down the street from me and some other pits and powerlines on the cape which get boring quick.

    1. Who is interested and has a truck ready to wheel?
    2. Where shall we go?
    3. When should we do this?

    Are you back from your work trip?

    I'm trying to go wheeling this sunday out at the MA/CT border. Fairly mild trail work, nothing super tight or technical. It's on private land and requires a $20 "donation" to the landowner per rig. If you want to go, PM me. I can bring you as a guest.

    Other than that, I'm down.

    That particular outing is cancelled. I was the only club member going and my kid is sick and won't be well enough for a full day out in the cold on Sunday.

    Since I couldn't go out to western Mass, and Glenn could not make it....

    My daughter and I went for a ride.

    We took a ride down to Plymouth beach. It was a balmy 20* with a windchill of "I can't feel my ears" so we didn't stay long.

    We had some time to kill so we went to get a closer look at some gigantic windmills that were just put up nearby. Is anyone else disturbed by how massive these things are? Just giant things that don't blend in with the landscape at all. They remind me of the machines that rose up out of the ground in the War of the Worlds movie.

    Stopped and got an on trail shot while playing around the trails in the woods near the windmills.

    They put some of those windmills up on a friends farm in upstate NY. They're monstrous... Had to bring in a few cranes to put them up.

    Oh, I just thought that's what people who owned B2s were into. :dunno:

    I would love to visit silver lake dunes someday, but it's not in my immediate future.
