Mine is sitting in a bike I don't own yet.

Gear you don't mind being permanently stained and smelling like pig shit.

A good lock for your truck and throw everything in the bed/tailgate/trailer in a locked compartment - the trailhead gets pilfered, A LOT.

A mistaken idea that it's a maintained trail network. It may have been, back in 1986, or 1886. Now it's a fucking maze of trails that just go haphazardly all over, so if you get separated and alone try to find a colored trail (red, blue, orange, etc.). If it's not marked, no guarantee whatsoever it leads back to the parking lot. Some of the trails dump out onto the county highway or state route. I run a GPS there, I know the trails well but I still find new stuff every time.

The knowledge that the main trail ruts are deceptively deep and not to be taken lightly. Especially the blue trail on the left side of the forest. The quad holes will eat your bike.

That said, I love riding there...it's like a playground where you can try everything, and experience a ton of different obstacles and conditions in a day. It will make you a better rider, if you don't puss out and stick to the easy shit.

Or it will eat your bike and leave you smelling like my socks after I've ridden Tar Hollow in 100 degree heat while wearing winter cloths.

OK, Sparky! Sounds like a man with the plan! I have a Vstrom, ttr250, and 4 other bikes, so anytime you are ready, let's ride!
I'm off this week and next, if you got time, thinking about doing a few overnighters. What's up with you?

No, but you can run over bicycles, according to Luke. But only if they are two-a-boob, or is that two abreast? Ask Luke, HE knows ALL the traffic laws!

Your awake past 11PM? Or is this a case of sleep posting? It's Swingset, you know he's just making fun. Next he'll talk about how great his wife is for hiring a 21 yo babysitter for him when she goes on trips.
