Nice!

You were lucky to find those houses, they are so colorful! Great train pics too! Definitely worth trying to sketch.

Its a shame that heartless scrappers are gobbling up all this good stuff....
Found it! After 3 or 4 rides around out there and with overcast skies I was able to find the place. 478 Underwood Rd., Vestal NY 13850.

It burned down sometime this past year. No wonder it was so hard to spot.



Unfortunately, no sign of the cultivator or most of the other junk around the house. The old cars are still there and the mint green toilet but I'm guessing they pushed all the other junk, cultivator include, into the foundation and covered it up with the fire debris. If you feel like digging around in the ruins you might be able to uncover it.
Sorry bout that FixxiT.

I know how you must feel man. I was disappointed too and I don't even own a tractor. I searched for the place, found it and the item I wanted to find was gone...or buried. If you want we can go out and dig it out. I feel like I owe you that much. But maybe some scrap hauling neighbor too all the metal stuff, who knows. Want me to go talk to the neighbors?

Met up with some local guys for a ride this morning, 2 KTM's and a KLR. I'm the least experienced of the group so thanks for putting up with my slow speed today guys. Definitely learned a few things and only dropped the DR once and I'm blaming that on a slimy root in muddy condition...on a street tire.



Finding dirt...



Pretty nice so far. This is where we tossed the coin to decide which trail to ride. Stupid coin.



Mud and ruts. The KLR also had a crappy street tire on the back. We both paid for that...



after riding down the trail/creek bed we decided to give this trail a shot. Walked a bit of it and it looked decent enough...



had to turn back when we found a tree blocking that trail, back to the creek bed...



which lead us down to this...



Dan and Karl crossed to see what's on the other side. No go so we headed back the way we came...








I fell shortly after this...



Great ride and I appreciated finally having someone to ride with. Hope you guys let me tag along again. I promise to get a knobby on ASAP!

If anyone is following this thread from the area we're trying to find other riders for local rides. One of the guys I rode with today started up a page on Shutterfly. If you're nearby and would like to ride with us stop by and introduce yourself.

http://binghamtonadventureriders.shutterfly.com/

I also started a thread in the Regional section...

Found a great new road I'd totally forgotten about. It's just across the river from my old house in Great Bend PA. It runs through State Game Lands and ties into some other dirt roads. Nice riding and I didn't see anyone else on the SGL road. The other dirt roads were in gas well areas and got pretty busy around 5:30. I guess thats when the shifts change. Otherwise they were also clear of traffic and a lot of fun to ride. I wonder if I can ride on the gas pipeline??? Anyone know?

A few pics of the SGL road.

This is known as the Million Dollar highway. Guess it must have cost a million to build back in the day which was probably way too much for a road from nowhere to nowhere.







Kept me on the pegs a good part of the ride.

Great pic's! Those SGL roads are some real hidden gems. I love discovering and exploring new ones. Gas related traffic can definately get heavy at certain times, even areas well off the beaten path.

I live and ride a lot between Lawton, PA and Laceyville, PA. There are some awesome new gas pipelines around here, however all of them that I know of are private property. Technically, the NG companies forbid ATV's (not sure about other vehicles), but in the end it's really up to the landowner. My neighbor takes a quad on his pipeline without issue.

There's an awesome stretch of pipeline that is just off the edge of my land. It leads up a steep hill to the dirt road a mile away on top. Until recently, I used to rip up and down it all the time, I can even get some decent air in a few spots. However, my neighbor just had the NG company plant some high octane deer food plot that runs the entire length, so out of respect, I now stay off the pipeline.

That's good info to know Matt. I'd read something last year on this site that made me think it was fair game riding the pipeline. I'm rethinking it now. I don't want to ruffle feathers and given my limited riding experience I'm probably better off staying on SGL roads.If you know of other areas that are user friendly I'd appreciate the info but do it thru PM's since we don't want all these other FF's knowing about them.
Do you have any specific nights you're free to ride? If you do I can meet you half way after work. There's a ton of dirt roads between you and me we can entertain ourselves with.

I know. When I came off the dirt road and saw that shit I was blown away. Speedsville it basically an area of people living in old worn out RV's and cabins but it's on the fringe of Ithaca which is also a lot of people living in the back of the car but coupled with high spenders on daddy's buck going to Cornell and Ithaca college. A huge conflict of interest in more ways than I can put into words. Those "cottages" rent for $1000-$1800 a month!

No dirt tonight, bridge building instead. We've got a big project going on and I get to drive through daily to watch the progress. Headed over tonight to watch for awhile. Tried to find a place on the hill to get arial shots but no luck.

One of the old bridges coming down...



Want...









That middle beam was giving them problems, it was fitting a little loose I think. Watching the guy try to inch it over with a small pry bar was interesting. I love this shit and it's been fun watching it progress for the last year or so. Everyday my ride in to work is a bit different and so far traffic has been moving remarkably well.
