Cause it was a level way above mere FUN...

Thanks Hatch,
That is especially gratifying since you are a "been there done that" guy who KNOWS what I am talking about.

You have been with PAR from the beginning and are clearly a PAR OG.

Just had in mind some simple meet/eat and ride on a SAT or Sunday type rides. A little street and as much dirt as we can find.

While there are a few of us "old timers" still around - and I hope will be here for a long time to come - we must also recognize the active military part of PAR and with that the inevitable movement of these fine guys and gals to other parts of the world. The list is way too long to name each of our PAR riders who have gone on to other worlds to serve our country. But if you have been on this thread for any length of time you will recognize names like Riggy, Rucked Up, Frothenslosh, Reidinitaly, and on and on. Now we are losing MItrnsplt and Rotorhead. Godspeed to all of you.
Then there are those who while not military have passed through the area long enough to make friends and enrich all our lives. That list too is way too long but thanks for joining us. It’s been a trip.
Happy Birthday PAR.
Thanks Vic! All of you guys will be missed here, due to all of you fast-as-hell guys molding me into the DS rider that I am today. Hopefully up in southern NJ, there will also be a group of FASTBURNERS that I can unite with. I don't leave till the end of May/beginning of June, but will be on leave for 3 weeks in April....so I still have a few more rides with everyone!

It's 270 miles to north Alabama,,,
We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
Hit it.




Gonna be a pretty weekend for a long distance beast ride.
Don't ask where.
It don't matter.
Anybody interested?

Heavy sand in all these areas...

Helos 30 36.237 86 47.786
mini tank 30 35.932 86 48.729
air plane (s) 30 34.309 86 53.768

trenches 30 33.109 86 56.218
AA Guns 30 33.191 86 55.288

Good luck.

for grins stash a little geobox and we can add to it with each visit...
Thanks for this, will be a big exploration for the boys and I. Don't know much about the geocaching stuff but my 11 year old would love to stash something for others to find and then go back and check.

Again, thanks!

Whats brox? I would like to ride. would that be a ride for the road toad or the bergman? Have kinda like atv type tires on the bergman. You'd be suprised what it will do off pavement.

I'd be in for a brox ride sat? I probably fall into the slow category though.
