I'm pretty familiar with the area, and just a heads up the cool hill in the last picture is either private property or city/cemetery property. The county is getting kinda pissed about all the make shift dirt tracks all the four wheeler flat billers are making.
That's cool you're able to make it pretty far up in altitude in that area, normally it's totally locked up until end of may
Thanks for the heads up on the hill we were playing on. Saw tracks all over it, and trails right off of it, and there were no signs saying it was off limits, so I just assumed it was safe to fart around on....oh well. Guess a little signage would probably go a long way.

I hear what you're saying about the snow drifts, and to be honest I really don't want to muck up a good thread with a bunch of back and forth banter, so if anyone wants to talk more about me messing up (which I do all the time... ), please just shoot me an PM.

Also, who quotes all the pictures?....noob....

No matter how awesome he makes that bike, it will never be a KTM. And we should remind him constantly.

The Wolfpack eats a dinosaur

Last weekend the gang got back together and gave 'er hell for a few days. Most of the pictures from that ride can be seen here:

I think we left an impression on everyone....in fact, Sean is working on our sponsorship as I write this. Here's a few highlights:
