How often does everyone go offroading?

Generally how often do you guys get to/try to go offroading, a week, a month?

I go on a offroading TRIP about once a month and hit a tiny local trail once every two weeks probably.

whenever i get the chance. My last trip was to Colorado Off Road Extreme 3 weeks ago, my next trip is tomorrow, and i have a 3 day trip planned for the weekend of the 8th of June, Late June another trip planned, Mid-July another, and 3 trips in August. Essentially every other weekend I'm up wheeling

the only trail near me is made for rock crawlers so i dont even try taking that.

when i go "offroading" its usually in some big puddle i find. that only happens a few times a year. luckely my friend is going to be making a mud pit in his yard

On average once a month or so. There are planty of trails around here, I just don't hit them up that often, partly bacause of cost, gas and powerwasher at the car wash etc...

2-3 times a year. I'd love to go more, but don't have time, money, or a good all-out trail rig yet. I'd like to turn the Ranger into a true trail rig, before I start going on lots of trips.

Not very often, nothing local that isnt completly insane-i like playing in the mud but i dont want to kill my truck either, i want her to stick around for a while
Although the last time it was in the mud i had to pull my dads truck/trailer out of the mud, he pretty well buried it and i had to pull him out-who would of thought a ranger pulling out a dodge ram
She got good and muddy that day

I'm going up to Rausch Creek Offroad Park tomorrow to get in on an annual membership so I can go whenever I want. I wanna try to make it out there every other weekend this summer and make one or two weekend camping trips up there as well.

There's a bunch of local trails to mess around on as well. I took my truck out on a test run the other day up the mountain and didn't even have to kick it into 4wd.

every couple of times in the summer. That's usually at the local city dump though whenever I need to haul stuff off. rutted pathways, small dips etc... -Mike-

atleast 3 times a month but sometimes I hit up some trails 3 times a week. It really depends on my mood. I try to get out for some serious wheeling every other month but lately this has been difficult for a number of reasons.

A few times a year, just whenever I get to go home and then I'm out everyday for like a week so it adds up days wise, but not that many individual trips.

I'm not a mud guy. I love rock crawling. I go up with a group of us from the RMFTC (almost all Rangers too) and we have a blast. Mine's the only stock truck, but I still put it in places most never dream of going.
