Wheeling With Our Brothers To The North

If it weren't for dedicated people in the sport of four-wheeling, we would all be doomed. The groups who maintain trail systems and open new areas for us to use are the backbone of the entire off-road community, ensuring us places to take our vehicles in the future. Randy Bodin and Charlene Pigeau decided to open Charlene's family's 122 acres in Southern Ontario, Canada, to off-road vehicles five years ago. With the help of many local enthusiasts the land has been transformed into a trail system that would challenge any level of driver. From boulder fields and rock ledges to bottomless mud and steep, eroded, tree-rooted trails, it has something for everyone.

The area is host to the annual Looney Run event, named after the country's $1 coin. It attracts around 30 vehicles each year from Canada and the surrounding states. Ontario seems like it would be quite a haul for the weekend, but it's only half an hour over the border of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the city of Sault Ste. Marie. They offer rustic camping onsite and all-inclusive package deals with a hotel and restaurant in the nearby town.

For more information on this property or the events they host, contact Randy Bodin at randyb@vianet.ca.
