JC,
Gimme a shout via PM and I might be able to take this a step further. No gar-un-tee's but I'll give it the ol' silver-tongued try. Plus, I like to SEE the ordinance/statute/AAC or whatever it is they use before I start bumpin' my gums. Sometimes it just a matter presenting the facts and then politely pointing out HOW DAMN STUPID....oh, er, I mean presenting a new proposal.

Seriously, gimme a shout and I'll work this with you. Worse that can happen is nothing changes.
Jim

I hope I don't get flamed by other users of the Fort Rich ORV trails for revealing this "secret." It's kind of a pain in the ass to get on base as every soldier has a different idea of what the rules are. That in itself should keep the crowds down, which is good because trail traffic is a total free-for-all. Ride safely and respectfully so we can all continue to enjoy the privilege. There's some fun terrain there for lighter bikes (like my ex-DR350.)

Sadly, they don't let you ride the tank trail Tom refers to that'd run you to Eklutna.

It took an email to the head dude this year but the road got swept yesterday! Still a bit of dust in places but this rain will clear most of that up.

The road is in good shape but the Eklutna overpass still has a lot of gravel. Also, the bridge between T-bird and Eklutna on the Old Glenn has been closed so you will have to take the Eklutna exit to make it to Eklutna Lake rd.

Dang! I remember back when we could drive all the way back to the glacial moraine at the far end of the lake and nobody cared. Used to take Boy Scout troops up there for weekend campouts, had picnics, etc. Army held glacier training back there and Jeeps, 3/4's, and duece-and-a-halfs all went back and forth without tearing up the road. Doggone desk jockeys ruint it all!

Mom took our '68 Olds Cutlass Supreme back there.

Ripped the oil pan right out from under the car.

Not sure what she was thinking.

Later that evening Dad's perspective seemed well thought out.

Good time.

Nice! You're old school Alaska...you remember the Shade Tree, the Ice Palace, and the mx track we had on the flats between the bridges I'll bet.

Nice! Probably watched you race it. I was out there on a mighty Honda SL100 and a Hodaka Dirt Squirt.
