Any additional details on this place? What exactly is it? I'm interested.

It's located just off of I-85, near SC-18. It is a vacant industrial lot that the locals are using for mud bogging and 4 wheeling. It's really rough from all of the mud play, and wasn't large enough to keep me interested for more than 10 minutes.

I'm also sure it's not exactly legal, I would advise to ignore this spot.

Free X-Mas Trees

If you enjoy riding up to the mountains with your family to choose and cut your tree, one of my neighbors is giving them away for free. There's a variety of sizes, & pretty nice shapes. I didn't see any "Charlie Brown" trees.

They are on Wards Branch Rd, just off Hwy 321. About 20 minutes West of Boone. Bring a saw and wear boots or shoes with good grip, because it's steep. I got our tree a couple days ago, there were a few hundred (200-400?). Nobody was there, but a sign said "Be careful it's steep, take all you need for friends & family. God bless."

They aren't bundled, so are bulky. Need a pick-up, or maybe you can wrap it up in a tarp?


Ho! Ho! Ho!

Iron Mtn. was actually in pretty good shape. The horse trails less so.

Virginia Horse Trails today

Rode all of the seasonal trail between 16 and 21 today. Some excellent traction - some sheet ice(not too much). About 3-4 significant trees down across the trail. BBQ @ Shirley's was good as usual.
