The main entrance is at the other end of the road. Leave the camp/parking area, cross the road and ride about a mile on the grave, the clubhouse is on the left, the only building on the main gravel road that still has walls.

Do you have a link to their site? I did a little seaching and came up empty.

Looks good -
Anyone going to be down there anytime soon (NOT on daytime Thursday). Need someone to dial 9-1 and hover.

That road was closed by a locked gate last time I was by there (took my CCW class at the shooting range behind the campgrounds). It looks like the main entrance to the clubhouse is off of 82.

Mala Bunny and I are talking about going down on Friday for next month's Atv/Mc weekend at Southington and staking out a nice area for ADV inmates if anyone wants to camp.

Busy with quads but doable. Crow is better in my opinion. Less traffic, more elevation changes. you can camp at Crow as well.

it's still worth a ride up at least once and very beginner friendly and has different terrain. (sand, big ass rocks) I was a complete and utter woos on my scary bike, but I do know it was beginner friendly even though I chickened out.

Bring Alicia and I'll bring the TTR.....but she might have to fight Meredith for it. Or you can steal the TTR for a weekend if I don't go.

The people made the trip worth it - it was great to finally meet Matt, Meredith, Alex, Jay and Kevin. And of course, see Joe again.

Alex giving MGorman some pointers

Farm Ride

Being beat to shit on the trail beats being beat to shit anywhere else Fun ride, when I wasn't dragging the Dizzer outta the muck - Southern Delawares still a swamp.






Was a good gear check day - 661 pressure suit still works, the Gaernes are waterproof - and iPhones don't float (Otter makes a good case.. saved my ass)
