Derick Wiaderski, President of Ocean State Jeepsters, states
“The Nature of our Hobby, which uses undeveloped and non-maintained roads at typically very low speeds (less than 10 mph), this enables us to appreciate the beauty of our surroundings. Unlike the motorized sports illustrated by the media, OHRV use is a hobby of skill and strategy rather than speed. Our excursions have opened up the regions natural artistry to many that would otherwise be unable to access the “back woods”, This event is one of our ways to give back to the community and to help keep these areas open for others to enjoy”.
