Default Military Training Networking help

Ok folks, looking to tap into the mighty power of the GreenSCREEN.

I will be working with a civilian company providing upper-level training to a particular military group that would like to do a long-range vehicle course. It's a pretty small group, driving civilian vehicles, lets call it a small convoy. Curriculum will consist mainly of off-road driving techniques and field mechanics. At this moment, it looks as though the movement will be between Nevada and Idaho.

What I am looking for is any points of contact for private land owners, with a decent amount of acreage, in Nevada, Idaho, Southeastern Oregon, or possibly Northwestern Utah.

Other than sleeping soundly as a patriot, I am not sure what we will be able to offer in return...though I am pushing to be able to award a small amount of money for "leasing" the land. It would like be less than 8 hours at any one location.

Looking for fairly urgent help in locating a few training areas. I can go into a little more detail, via PM/Call/Text/email. Thanks TBHers!!!

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestion. I would prefer to stay away from state/National parks and avoid the licensing/ permits and overwatch that comes with it...but I will have to research that as back up plan.

Moab is too far outside the training area.

Anybody know of any private ORV/ OHV areas around there?

I reached out to a friend that has also been in a particular military group that has done some serious driving/training for the desert. He said they used BLM land in Nevada but to make sure that you stay off of any reservations.

Try reaching out to any JEEP clubs in the areas you are interested in. If anyone knows they would be the ones. May try a club around your area. they may know some contacts in other areas.

Thanks guys, I'll have been looking into the state/federal lands...apparently Obummer cutting the funds, shut down a significant portion of the roads/trails on a lot of the parks. I'll keep researching.

The Off-Road clubs is a good idea!!..I'll check into that as well.

All input is appreciated.

I don't know if they would be open to it, but try contacting the Winecup Gamble ranch in Nevada. The ranch is over 1 million acres. The ranch has a website

I did a similar course in Nevada, outside Hawthorne before heading down to Nellis for some CAS.

I would suggest BLM, and downloading one of the Hunting apps that lists land owners and going that route. There is also NAS Fallon in Nevada that has some large training areas. In Utah, you have the Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR), up in Idaho you have Mtn Home AFB and there are a significant number of ranges out there.

But for what it sounds like you want to do, I would go the BLM and Hunting App to contact land owners. If your guys are going to be bringing stuff from the armory, I'd suggest offering some shooting time with the local LO's as a thank you.

The statement of work calls for advanced OR work, as well as Field Mechanics (FMC), and it sounds like they want some "other" scenario-based events. The company that has the contract has proposed a 3 day site-survey for me, the other lead instructor, and the PM...for May. The course is very short in duration, for how much they are requesting as far as curriculum. The proverbial 10 pounds of &%^$ in a 5 pound bag If I can find adequate training areas we will build a great course. I thought about using OnXmaps...not sure I have the time for all that legwork, hence trying to reach out to the Green Screen.

Thanks for the suggestions guys...again, any ideas are appreciated.

My dad used to run the aviation training group out of Fallon. I'll see if he still has any contacts out there. Tons of BLM land and as long as no exercises are going you could get through a lot of the training ranges. Some of the best fishing I've ever done is up there, if I ever draw a sheep tag I know where to hunt over there too

In Nevada. Looking for any last minute leads.

Saw a massive bull elk (on the edge of the road) shortly after crossing the boarder into Nevada. Giant antlers in the head lights
