I'd like to connect with some local off roaders and learn more about the sport that I will be investing in for many years to come. Just a chance to listen and learn. My Jeep is pretty much stock right now and will take me some time but I don't mind since I have so much to learn so if you have suggestions of groups to get together with I'd love to hear them.
As for Watertown; I live near there and wasn't aware of anything. Love to hear more.
You know, I haven't connected with any local off road clubs because they are mainly all jeep clubs and owning a HUMMER and off roading in this state I'm basically the black sheep of the off road community. My buddy has a capable F-150 and him and I usually go out and find places to test the abilities of our trucks. I belong to a national HUMMER club called Club Hummer Off Road but I'm the only person in this state affiliated with them.
As far as the Watertown spot goes, it's owned by the golf course and like I said before I'm not sure if we are supposed to be up there playing around or not. Almost everytime I go up there is some high school kid buried to the axel in his stock chev 1500.
And I have to pull him out. Anyways, this place is right on the crow river directly across from the golf course. (can't remember the name of the course) It's got some good hills to climb but nothing technical. It's a fun place to go mess around for a half hour or whatever. If you're coming into Watertown from Waconia on 10, take a right onto the street just before the Crow river bridge and follow that down a couple miles. Once you get past the trailer park keep winding around till the pavement become gravel. On your right you will see tracks going up a couple hills. Up there is the spot.
