Re: Wheeling with kids

Of course it all depends on the driver and trail. That said, I think my daughter is probably safer when we are off road, rahter than on pavement in town.

Re: Wheeling with kids

best family fun around!!!!!!but like said use caution and bring extra supplies for when s**t happens. Wheelin with kids around is great fun, but put more people at danger if parents are not being responsible with there children.Keep a close eye on them at all times little guys and gals move fast and can be in harms way to quickly.Small people get out off line of site easy and can easily get run down,over or killed.Bring them out just keep them close and teach them proper trail rules, from when there young .It will help keep trails open for them when its there turn to drive

Re: Wheeling with kids

My son (who's 5) and I LOVE to wheel and as he gets older we'll do more. I have taken him out since he's been 2 and I use a wheelchair - he helps load it some times too!!

As the others have said you should drive differently depending on who you have with you. I do - or at least since my accident that put me in a wheelchair!!

Ti, 5AT

Re: Wheeling with kids

YES. It is much safer than being out on the road!

Re: Wheeling with kids

I wheel with my kid all the time....its hard to get him out of the drivers seat though.....it could be because he is 18 and doesn't have his own FJ yet

Re: Wheeling with kids

My daughter (2 years old) did Hell's revenge this year. She had a blast. She loves to wheel.

I think wheeling is safer than freeway driving. Of course I fancy myself a careful driver. I worry more about other people on the road causing an accident at high speed.

Re: Wheeling with kids

agreed to all. my son loves it and all the guys i go out with get a kick out of him as well, and of course i enjoy having my son around for some good quality time that both of us can enjoy. he is 5 years old and i take him with me almost every time. when its time for spotting or scouting just let them get out and go play in the mud, or mess around in the creeks, help throw rocks and limbs into holes, its all good fun to them.

Re: Wheeling with kids

Can't wait to take my kids one day!!! Still a few more years until I have to worry about that though.

Re: Wheeling with kids

Life's too short not to spend as much time with you kids as you can. Use your head, don't do anything stupid and enjoy the time you have with then. Soon they'll be teenage and won't want anything to do with you.
