what's everyone's thoughts on corec being able to leverage DEEP to get us local areas to wheel? I joined up and paid their fee because it sounds promising. Would be great to have something that's local.

They're still a long way off but good progress seems to be happening. I've been reluctant to join with trying to balance building the jeep and working on joining this club so I wouldn't have much time to help out. The only thing that concerns me is they don't have a vetting process in place to weed out bad eggs. Hopefully no one comes in and ends up halting or setting back any progress they have made. It would be cool to have some class 6 roads like they have up in Mass. The property they have now should eventually set as a good example for how the organization can create, maintain, and monitor the use of land dedicated to offroading. That is, if they can hold on to that property and nothing bad happens with the owner. Theres a lot of what ifs that could happen and ruin it all but like I said, from the outside it seems like good progress is being made and I'm just happy someone is out there trying to make Connecticut begin to realize we're not all teenagers with POS jeeps and trucks with 4 wheel drive that look to rip and tear up every mud hole we find just to get the vehicle dirty to post on instagram.

They are a lobbying organization with a long road ahead. Numbers are needed and frankly will take anyone that pretty much fills out an app. It's up to the general membership to watch over our right to wheel and change behavior. We have to monitor it. All of us...

The key thing with COREC is that they decided to represent multi use, not just jeeps or not just atvs and side by sides. While it makes the organization big, everyone is in on the ground floor starting to work together. Personally, I am a believer in the unified voice that many of the Land Use Advocates preach.

There are many that have said "We (they) tried before, but failed. There will never be any offroading on state land in CT. " Matt House wouldn't accept that. Remember, it took Marc Pouliot and NWOR 10+ years of working with New Hampshire Legislature to get Jericho Trail open to the public. The never give up attitude is what got it done.

There's a gigantic liberal, tree hugging hurdle in front of it all that makes their mission seem hopeless.
A blue state government, hot air ship, that's so inflated with bureaucracy that it can't even turn or maneuver.
But Rey made a great positive point, "never give up".

  WE are responsible to reach out to those rogue, illegal, beer can slinging, yahoo wheelers and educate them on the right and wrong way to participate in this sport. Point out to them that what they are doing is wrong and that not getting caught or "nobody says anything"  DOES NOT make it OK.  Tell them the benefits of belonging to organized communities.
Join a club. Convert.
  My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
  To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Ive brought this up before. There is a reason adult riders in CT arent required to wear a helmet. Get 400 paticipantes at the State Capitol in an orderly organized fashion, even the liberals take notice. 400 votes is a scarey thing to them and they do notice. There was a helmet law in the 70’s. It was overturned.  Its doable with persistence and orderly numbers.

Persistence and numbers of the tree huggers is why we do not have any public land wheeling.
nada! Shopping for parts for new build.

So, then again, create a force to be reconded with. It isn’t the tee huggers. It’s all about State Liability is why we have limited access.

I did join to at minimum donate $25 to the cause and be notified of trail cleanup days but I'm with Joe here and worried without a vetting process there will be plenty of bad eggs.

In the comments of the facebook posts alone it was turning into a zoo where COREC had to then post rules to follow because they don't want to have a bad image.

I think the individuals running it are very smart and determined so I'm willing to help when I can and make the dream a reality. They have land so its a step in the right direction now we just need to make sure people don't trespass and ruin it for everyone.
