Up here in Northern Michigan, we have thousands of miles of state owned trails where you can find everything from sand, dity, clay, mud......anything you could want to play in. As a matter of fact, the middle of June, our 4x4 club is coming to our place for the weekend for a trail ride. Very fun! Did a vouple of them last year and had a riot! Other than that, the lower part of the state is mostly mud bogs, and we do plenty of them as well!!!!!!!!

A town called Hollister has a State Park, a little further South to a joint called Clear Creek. Haven't wheeled at Pismo Beach which is the dunes, just never done anything for me wheelin' on dunes.

Pretty much required a couple time a week for me to slop in some mud.

I have a buddy who's filling some lowland down by a river with all the fill I can bring him. The trail's pure mud when it rains and not much better when it's dry so you need 4 WD to reach the fill site.

It's really fun running my IH 4x4 or my F-450 down there with a full load of dirt.

I usually ride right out of my garage if I want to, but I usually ride tracks like LACR and Glen Helen.
