I'm heading to EXPO East from Dartmouth, MA on the Thursday night after my grandson gets done with football practice. Coming home on Monday. Looking forward to it.

I live near Freetown State Forest. No true "adventure" riding in there. All roads are easily accessed by a car.....except after a big rain or in the winter...

Yeah it’s hard to find stuff in state. We just “discovered” nauset beach OSV program. Different, but so fun. Don’t ever want to do the beach the “normal” way again!

From north central MA, near the old Fort Devens!!! Nothing really in this state-we usually head to VT in the Green mountains. Stock '21 TRD sport, which I am absolutely in love with. Have done some camping over the summer out of it, still working on my ideal setup. No desire for a rooftop tent, we use a Gazelle 3T tent, which is fantastic!

We really don't have much here in mass, I love in Berkley and like @RoyB said, just some dirt and sometime wet roads. I did get hung up on a rock once there.... that was fun...

Hey guys, so 3's company. I'm out in the Boston area 2-3 times per week for work. Let me know if that works better for you since it's closer than Tree House, but either works for me. What weekends do you have free? I can create a Rally Point after we decide on a location.

Just to get the conversation started, have you guys done any trails in NH/VT/ME? I've been on some pretty cool Class VI roads in NH. I've spent a few days exploring the state with some other buddies. I have a list of the Class VI roads and have been trying to check them out one by one. I have them in a spreadsheet organized by town and county. I've been trying to map them in Gaia, Google Maps and OnX

Check it out :smile:



I did some winter camping in the White Mountains over New Years, it was a good experience!

Yeah man, I don't care where we meet up, just thought Treehouse would be cool to bring the pups out to. I've done some NH/VT Trails in Green Mountain NF and White Mountain NF. Also did day 1 and 2 of the Trans-New Hampshire Trail (couldn't find camping for night 2). Sold my roof top tent last year in very early spring and ordered a new one but due to shipping delays still don't have the new one. Hoping to have it this season.

Currently driving a 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2.

Hey bud,

Always looking to meet new people and make new friends. Trying to stir up the pot here and see if we can rally the troops. It would be nice to get a small group together to start off with. I think we have 4 active people on the thread now since I kicked the tires. We should try to do a meetup on a Saturday in the next few weeks if possible.

What dates work for people? I'm pretty flexible. Throw out a few dates and we can see what works for the group.

- Morning meet up
- Check out the trucks and gear
- Plan a trip?
- Maybe do some exploring in NH depending on where we meet / weather

Are you guys using Gaia for nav / planning? These are some of the Class VI that I have done in NH. There are tons more to explore.

Hey guys, just keeping this thread hot....

How does the weekend of 1/22 or 1/29 work for people for a morning (9:00 AM) meetup? I know that we discussed possibly meeting up at Treehouse however I think that might be better off when the weather gets warmer. It might be better to choose something that is closer for the majority of the group for our first meetup. Let me know what you think about time, location, dates.

I would suggest we meet at the location below. It's my office in Woburn in Cummings Park. There is PLENTY of parking as well as a Dunks, Starbucks and a bunch of other stuff in the area. The other benefit is, if the weather and ground conditions are permitting, we could easily hop on I-95 and be on some Class 6 roads in an hour or so.

I'll create a rally point once I get your feedback. It would be pretty cool if we can get 5-10 rigs to show up!

Thoughts? I'm Psyched.:smile:

Possible Rally Point
400 W Cummings Park, Woburn, MA 01801

I'm up for either day. Prior commitments prevent me from heading north after meet and greet.

Great to see we’ve got folks in Mass! I’m in Central MA - Sterling. I’ll meet up @ Tree House (Which one?) - that sounds like a great plan. I’ve got a 2008 Jeep Rubicon with some mods. I’m a member of Baystate Jeepers, try to get out at least once a month. Have wheeled up in Maine and Central/Western MA. Would like to do more overlanding trips w/ camping over a weekend.
