    Durham 4×4 is doing a trail clean up on Boundary Road in North Oshawa on November 3rd 2012.

    Along with this is the board from OF4WD. If you would like to get involved or can bring any trucks or trailers to haul out a lot of construction debri and scrap metal, Please sign up on the OF4WD website. The link is posted below.
    Many thanks from Durham 4×4 and the OF4WD.

    Durham 4×4 has stepped away from the November 3, 2012 clean up of Boundary Road.

    There were many variables toward the desision to pull out of the Boundary Road Clean Up.

    When we had our coffee meet on Wednesday evening we all gathered around to listen to the information I was recieving from the townships and city works department as well as the DRPS.

    In the past there has been a lot of illegal activity in the area, stolen cars, burned cars, people under the influence as well as trespassing onto private property.

    We at Durham 4×4 do not condone any of this and when it came to discussion it was concluded in a vote with the members that were at the coffee meet that we did not want to be associated with these people.

    Since we did the East Cross Forest clean up in 2007, it was decided by most people at the time that we would just stay away from there so that we are not lumped into the 1% or so who still frequent the area.

    We are not discouraging any individuals who would be willing to help out with this endeavour. There fore we will leave it up to each person to deside for them selves if they want to volunteer to help out or not.

    If we are not to be associated with drunk people whom liter and trespass using their 4X4 trucks then we better all sell our rigs and find another hobby. We have complaints all the time about stuff like this all over the province. One main area would be Bobcaygeon where they have many issues with locals causing problems on the trails, however due to the hard of work of so many in this community we have come above the clouds and fog to shine and show that we, members of the OF4WD are not those people nor do we condone that type of activity. We have to work together to forming an image of what proper off-roaders really are even though we take a bunch of flack. We persevere and it eventually comes around to us where people are now seeing us in a different light and including us in trail maintenance work, trail signage and funding events. Other areas of the province are starting to see this vision, while this area is not quite on board yet I think we should still push in that direction.

    As a last ditch effort I have called both the Snowmobile clubs to offer assistance and joint forces. If this is not received well then we will re-consider this entire initiative.

    I just got of the phone with the Port Perry Snowmobile club, they are totally on board and want to join forces on this.  Also, Lafarge is game and wants to send a few people and supply all the safety gear for the volunteers.

    Stay tuned for more details
