I drove a bus down 5th ave for 30 years, that was my off roading.
My retirement gift JL to myself will be in my driveway soon and the local roads for coffee and a doobie will be max off roading I'll be doing.......
Maybe another ride down the Blue Ridge Parkway.

My buddy that has worked at jeep for 25 years estimates 1% go out of their way to off road. I have no desire to crawl rocks.

This forum are not your typical jeepers.

Yes, I go offroad. AZ pinstripes and some times it's not level out there.

Haven't been to Big Bend for 25 years but need to get back there again. How's that Black Gap Trial?

Still waiting on my JL, but I took my JK off road all the time in the nine years I've had it. The whole reason I bought it was because it could get me farther into the backcountry than my own legs could. Granted, it was my daily driver too, so I never did anything too crazy with it. But I made sure it saw rocks plenty, including several trips to Moab.

When my JLR gets here, I'm gonna be on the trails the first weekend, flat out stock... because why wait? I am jonesing for the desert.

If I wanted to just stay on the pavement, I'd be driving a muscle car again (my upbringing was classic Mustangs). But I want the dirt!

We went south to north, so we went down "the step" but the step was by far the easiest of the technical. Lots of off camber narrow steep trail to navigate. Best trail we did on the trip.

I didn't do much off-roading in my TJ. I did go to Camp Jeep in Branson, MO in 2002, and a few roads that I would classify more as "rough gravel/dirt roads" than true off-road.

I think this time will be different. I am waiting for my JL to arrive, but have already downloaded the Badge of Honor app and located the trails that are within a day's drive. I have also been talking with a buddy of mine who is pretty heavily into ORV's. He is going to show me around the OR stuff around here. I don't intend to get into anything rated 7 or higher. We'll see if that changes and if lifts and bigger tires show up.
