They didn't really go into significant enough detail. I mean, would it have taken any extra time to detail your injuries, the distance between you, or the fact that he was vested up and armed with a rifle and you hit him several times with your handgun?

I also enjoyed the "neighbor dispute" scene.

Good luck.

Honestly I was a little disappointed myself but they did warn me it would be about a 45sec spot. I also think they should've used the crime scene photo I sent them of the marijuana instead of the stock footage. I guess that's why I'm a cop and not a producer on a national tv program.

I guess that's why I don't watch it anymore.

so, as it turns out, the "video" I took at Luke's on the day of the rail bed ride was actually a bunch of pictures...I had the camera in the wrong mode and what I got was 622 pictures spaced 2 seconds apart. 99% of it was at Lukes house, because the battery was weak. Got a couple pics leaving the gas station in Plain City and exactly ! pic of the rail bed, when we stopped to assess the water situation. I really was back-assward that day...got video from my still camera and still pics from my video camera at least I was able to keep the bike going in the right direction the whole day.

so anyway, I trimmed out a little more than half the pics and added some lame royalty free music off the web and slapped it all together to create this cheesy video. remember, you were warned that its lame:

Making pancakes out of lemon aid. Sounds like all our video had some issues.

Really quite tonight.

a few of us met up at Southington Off-road Park yesterday.

Cool place considering the neighborhood. Sort of a small bike or big balls kind of place. Lots of sand and tightish single track.

Any picyures/vids from anyone present?? Gorman ?

I took some but have to get the ambition to do something with them.


It was nice to see some fresh faces yesterday. I think if we locked Z@ch, Scuba Jay, Meef and Oh-Tard in a room for a couple hours we could make the Blue Collar Comedy Tour look like a hack show.

As far as riding goes, there's a little for everyone there from the true beginner up to the trials rider who likes to play. There's 1,500 acres but as Jay said, most of it is swamp!

If you stay in the quarry area you probably won't have to wash your bike, it's mostly grit up to marble sized rolled round gravel that gives you zero percent traction. There is also a sand pit that will test your skills and ability to stay upright at speed. I saw many bikes leaving that looked as clean as when they came in.

The woods are another story. The ground is semi virgin with newer quad trails, all 2 track quad wide just like everywhere else on the planet. Some places the ruts get deep but for the most part, anyone can ride them, there are no real hills, just small inclines that any bike with a knobby can make it up. Some of the turns are pretty tight for a quad and the duel ruts can be challenging to ride at speed where you jump back and forth to get the good rut for the turns. The ruts are only mear inches deep for 90% of the trails but as time marches on, they'll end up like everywhere else.

Also, the loops are marked with colors so you shouldn't get lost very easy. Once you work your way back to the quarry, just ride around the rim until you get back to where you parked.

When I go back, I'm riding the 250 more so I can go up the jeep climbs and the suspension testers so I don't fear tearing up the big girls. The 640 was a pretty good ride there but the 950 wasn't as much fun because the battery was getting weak and I was afraid of flooding it and not getting restarted but in the sand pits, it was a blast.

As you can see, I didn't avoid the fun stuff

This just isnt fair! I want to get out and do some single tracking, but finding a 250 dual sport aint going so well. Found a couple, but $500 in fuel round trip. Truck mpg sucks!

Scubajay, and I went back today. Found a really sweet trail, I didn't find yesterday. It was really slimy this morning. But it dried up very quick. After jay left due to "sand in his vagina" I went into some of the jeep trails with some friends on quads. I buried the 250 once, but had a blast in the rockier sections. I plan on going back next month.
