There will probably/possibly be one more Pachaug camp-n-ride this year Swathman. Keep an eye on the official thread.. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...777479&page=36
There's no promise of "free crawfish" though so I'm not sure if it would be worth the drive down from NH!!...
al .....lost you and pfunk at the lake where we all took a break . did you find some new trails? i have done about 6-8 netra turkey runs in the last 2 years,it is not a race ,you can take your time and have fun. netra is 45$ to join and 40 -45 $ each evnt ialso did a ama sponsored turkeyrun /dualsport in the berkshires this year , the scenery ,views ,riding was awsome i highly recomend doing this one if it comes up next year

Not at all. Flying thru the state forest really wore me out. Picking the bike 4 or 5 times did me in for good. I think the fact that they had no sections that where you could relax a bit had a lot to do with it. This ride was none stop full on enduro shit.
I loved it right up until I hated it.

Edit: Made a better version. In the first cut, I totally missed the part where he called Ed Gary..."This is Ed"

Looks like Craig, sounds like Gary. Even the camera was bleepin' by the end.

At least he was out there, I haven't even washed my bike from Hammer Run.

When you reach that certain condition of being tired, nothing is fun anymore.
