Welcome to Jeeping Off-Road


The Mad Brit's Jeep Page




Driving a four-wheel drive vehicle in the backcountry has traditionally been referred to as driving off-road. However, if that means going off the trail, it is unacceptable. Forging new trails through the wilderness and bounding over obstacles is reckless, damaging to the environment, and visually destroying the backcountry experience for the next person.

Although driving off-highway or off-pavement may be less exciting terms, they are more accurate.

In the United States there are hundreds-of-thousands of miles of off-pavement trails. So when we leave the pavement, we go four wheeling, off-highway, off-pavement, trek, boon-dock, wheel or whatever. we do not go off-road. Gravel roads, dirt roads or muddy, rocky trails, are all considered off-highway and can provide a wonderful off-pavement experience. Please follow the rules of Tread Lightly! and travel only where permitted. Stay on existing, marked trails.

Remember, when driving your four-wheel drive vehicle, the future of four-wheeling lies in your hands. Please be a responsible, four wheeler and Tread Lightly.

 What's New

August 2013

Damn it, I accidentally did it again. I bought another f' ing Jeep. I bought a 2014 JKU Rubicon and have sent it to American Expedition Vehicles for the usual, totally unnecessary build. I am hoping it will make a good Alaskan, Canadian, Baja cruiser and will not let me down as much as the last JK did.


A lot because I have not updated these pages in a long time!!

A woman from Los Angeles, CA who was a tree hugger, a democrat, and an anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland, near Colville , WA.  There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract.  She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree.  As she neared the top she encountered a spotted owl that  attacked her.  In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her crotch. In considerable pain, she hurried to Mt. Carmel ER to see a Doctor.  She told him she was an environmentalist, a democrat and an anti-hunter and how she came to get all the splinters.  The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.  

She sat and waited three hours before the doctor reappeared.  The angry woman demanded, “What took you so long?”

He smiled and then told her, “Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area.  I'm sorry, but they turned me down.”
