i would not feel comfortable telling others about this ride or going on it. unless i first told them that i thought they would likely be riding illegally at least part of the day.

just my $.02
Just got back from Yannipalooza - had a GREAT time and never went past a single gate, posted sign or tank trap. Genuine good times, and an excellent bunch of hosts (thanks again guys!) in a superb riding area. Will get pics up tomorrow night, goin' to bed now!

Not sure what you mean, but if you want to subscribe to this thread, go to 'Thread Tools' and then select 'Subscribe to this Thread'. That will make it a lot easier to locate/follow what's going on in the future. If that's not what you mean, send me a PM.

hmm, i guess not

i thought you'd been banned.

for the record i wasn't involved in the AA300 hoo-rah, until you brought me in by posting about your poor treatment of me during the Hot Spring Rally.

I thought the AA300 hoo-rah was over by now.

i'm glad that i appear to be wrong and safe, legal fun was had. my information came only from reading the TT thread. i've run into Kelly more than once and he's always seemed a stand up guy and i have friends that contend he is also.

as for Yanni/Ryan i can't speculate why others "give him so much shit". i can say i've commented about him more than once b/c i know for a fact he's taken customers into areas that were clearly illegal in the past.

i hope he has cleaned up his act and is riding legally and giving back to the community (either by donation of time or money). by posting my comment i was attempting to keep the thread positive and keep others out of trouble. if you read my post i only said "i don't have any idea how he would do this.....".

Ryan and Kelly are stand up guys and we couldn't have asked for better host. Why does everyone feel the need to give him (Yanni) so much shit. Let's keep this thread going in a positive direction. If you would like to subit an upcoming ride, I highly encourage it. Otherwise, please post elsewhere.

I have not heard of anything going on other than the Acme ride down in your neck of the woods.

The Acme ride does sound like fun but the price is a bit steep if only riding on Saturday

Acme Ride

We have decided that Saturday pass is 35.00 instead of 50. There is music Saturday and the Camping is included.

Thanks for the clarification. Is there a specific time to be there or can you arrive any time?
