I've got zombies in my AO ... Don't head my way, it may cost you many bullets to get to my place unless you go by boat.

What is up with all the Zombies in Maine? Not good... I'll never get to the safe house

Training classes

In post #2 I was adding training class information and found this on Jimmy Lewis's Off-road school website, http://jimmylewisoffroad.com/ , I found it interesting in doing a self evaluation of my rider ability and thought others may find it interesting as well.

Beginner: (If you feel you are in this category, our school may progress too rapidly for you. Please make sure you let us know if you are a Beginner rider so you do not end up in a more advanced class.)

Not comfortable with clutch and throttle operation, stalls often, jerky with application.
Cannot come to a complete stop and accelerate away without putting a foot down.
Not comfortable putting only one foot down when stopping.
Not comfortable standing while riding.
Not able to ride above 30 MPH on safe dirt roads.

Novice:

Comfortable using front brake in slowing.
Can slide the bike by skidding rear wheel.
Can come to a complete stop and continue without putting a foot down.
Able to ride above 30 MPH off-road when safe.
Stalling from bad clutch use is not an issue.
Comfortable standing while riding.

Intermediate:

Can track stand the motorcycle for a few seconds at a time.
Comfortable on single-track.
Comfortable using both brakes in stopping and able to control skids.
Can loft the front wheel from a stop and not have the bike move forward much.
Can do full steering lock turns and figure-eights.
Comfortable sliding both front and rear wheels and able to produce and control the slides.
Comfortable riding the bike above 50 MPH off-road in safe conditions.
Not intimidated by different soil conditions (sand, mud, rocks).
Not intimidated by steep uphills and downhills
Comfortable jumping the motorcycle and riding in rough conditions without bottoming the suspension unexpectedly.

Advanced:

Comfortable in all conditions described above.

Able to loft the front wheel and pivot turn the motorcycle.
Able to ride up and down ledges that require wheel lofting.
Can predict braking distance and rarely pass braking points.
High level of understanding safe speed versus the conditions.

You should have hobbled your butt down my way... I've been hunting all day. Beautiful out here. Could have set you up in a lounge chair. All kinds of activity. I tried to call in a nice buck two hours ago but he was skittish. Right now i have 20 turkeys 15 yards away. You need to dust off your bow and come out to play.
