Wheeling spots

Anyone have any suggestions for wheeling spots in the lower mainland? all i have found are a few spots in langley and forest service roads in chilliwack. pretty unimpressive after coming from dawson creek, where you can get stuck in the tim hortons parking lot.

I went sledding there a few times but never went 4x4ing, my brother-in-law has tons of pics of his quadding trips down there and its just awsome. and there is lots of oilpatch activity there so there is all kinds of new trails and pipelines to follow. if i didnt work all summer i would go there in a heart beat.

STOP buying coffee at Tim Horrible. 98.49% of the time it is crap, no one in the bloody place speaks english, and no one knows how to make a proper cup of coffee. Last Tim Horrible is NO LONGER a Canadian Company, it is owned by Wendys...

If you want a good cup of Joe in the morning, hit a Husky station. They have great coffee, hell even McDonalds is better than Timmy Ho's...

OR in Langley my favorite Java Joint is
http://ethicaladdictions.com/langleymap.php their coffee is fresh ground (by the cup)
