I drive a 2012 Pro-4x in what seems like the coldest place on Earth. Looking forward to participating here!

cjs83, I'm in Minnetonka. You?

So do you know of any offroad parks within and hour or two that can accomodate a newbie (never driven the offroading vehicle, I've only been the passenger)? My car is also stock in every way - so far.

Thanks!

Welcome from Duluth.
Gilbert OHV park (on the Range) is the only dedicated place I know of. There are also plenty of nice forest trails up here in the Chippewa and Superior National forest areas.
I'd also recommend checking out Midwest Overland Society's blog for more local info; most active members are located around the cities.

Iron Range OHV is the best. Been up there a few times when I had my Cherokee, only once with the X.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/trail_detail.html?id=13

They will be having an open house, May 17th. Generally a bunch of Jeep guys, but it's a great group. Organized trail runs for everything from mild to extreme. I'm planning on being there. Don't be afraid of being stock. My first time up there in my Cherokee it was bone stock, and I brought the X up there about 2 weeks after I got it, highway tires and all.

Hopefully I'll make it up there before the open house, I'll post up if/when I get some plans going.

Welcome!

we as MN Xterras should get together and head up there for this, would be an excellent chance to meet everybody and hit the trails. what you guys think?

It would be great for me - generally to learn the ropes of off roading without making a wreck of my X.

Thanks mmke, I'll check those out too. I'm assuming you wouldn't recommend the forest trails until the snow clears?

Yeah I'd definitely wait until spring. If any of the roads are plowed you'd most likely end up playing chicken with a logging truck. Let me know if you want any info and maps for those areas, or if you come up I'd be happy to go drive around. I'm also all stock so far, so nothing to daunting.

I went up there yesterday, and yes, that's a great group: friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

It was amazing to see what a stock Pro-4X was capable of doing. I quickly got a feel for the dimensions of the car and where it can/can't fit, something I didn't have to deal with so far in 8 months of owning it. The main take-away: remove the damn mud guards. A two or three extra inches of ground clearance won't hurt either.

It was an education and also a lot of fun.
