Had a great time today at the April Fools Run, MA edition. Thanks Ernie/Bass4Runner for putting the run together & for all the folks who came to wheel.
We has a total of 15 rigs (4 Jeeps, 1 Monster 4Runner, 2 Frontiers, 1 K10 Chevy & 7 Xterras). The sky showered us with rain most of the day making the trails muddy, the puddles deep, the hills & ledges very slippery. Everyone did great, picked good lines & didn’t incur any major damage.
Two new trails were also featured today in addition to our regular ones at Gremlin. First one was the alternate entrance/exit from the gate to the landing. The second one, a loop near Diaper Hill.
Check out further details & pictures on the event post in our forum.

The 11th annual Back2School Run 2015 (B2SR’15) proved once again that September isn’t just for new notebooks and sharpened pencils. B2SR kicked off the fall wheeling season with a bang!
Base camp this year was the Shir-Roy Campground where, like last year, we had a whole section of the campground booked exclusively for Nexterra. Wheeling was on the Little Monadnock Family Trails.
We had 36 registered drivers, plus their guests, who started arriving from early on Friday afternoon, then into the late night, with the final numbers arriving by early Saturday morning. The weather was much warmer this year, providing comfortable nights. The Saturday activities started with a drivers meeting led by Mike C. & Ernie. The drivers then split into three main groups – greens, blues & black trail groups, and headed out to LMFT for a full day of wheeling.
This year, some of the trails were impacted by recent logging activities, but that didn’t take away much from the wheeling experience. Over the course of the day, folks had a great time with all groups tackling some interesting challenges on the trails.
Later that night, back at camp, we were treated to a fantastic BBQ dinner – Ernie, Mike R. & Chris did a great job on the grills, filling our hungry bellies after a long day on the trails. MC’s Tiff and Mike C. provided after dinner entertainment by hosting an awesome raffle, with a multitude of prizes from our sponsors. We also had a special raffle for a Power Tank that went home with Michelle Landry!
The night wound down slowly around campfires. Our members shared their trail experiences and discussed trail damage and what we wanted to do to our rigs for next year. After a good night’s rest, we enjoyed the co-op breakfast that was coordinated by Michelle. The rest of the morning was spent cleaning up and breaking down camp.
We want to thank all those who attended, for being a fantastic crew to wheel/camp with, and most of all for being part of Nexterra! A big THANK YOU goes out to our event sponsors!! We truly appreciate all of your donations!
Until the next Nexterra event… tread lightly my friends!
