I was assured that signs are posted, at least in the information kiosk. Other signs are also posted, but are frequently stolen.

I'm assuming that alcohol enforcement activities are on the rise this year. With the federal reimbursement dollars associated with Operation Dry Water, Boat Safe, and others, the agency would more than likely have officers assigned to those duties that bring fed $ back into the agency, rather than focusing on duties that do not have reimbursement $ attached to them.

If it would have been me, I would have confiscated the illegal liquor and brought it to an ADV function for proper disposal.


Just kidding!
Thanks for all the info guys!! Perhaps since they had been having a couple of beer while fishing there for years, that they thought it wasn't an issue. My friend did note that the sign only said something like 'no alcohol beverages on the landing' or some such. I'll relay the info...

On another completely different note. We had two good friends stay with us, who brought their sons and their dirt bikes. We had so much fun teaching those young'uns and watching them ride that we came up with an idea. How about a family ADV campout at the Munn Farm? Father/son, father/daughter, moms, whomever wishes to come, camp and ride in a very safe environement. I think that would be a blast. Anyone with chilluns interested in that?

I would even control my hatred for trailed bikes since the kids can't actually ride to WV. Moms would be welcome too. But this would be a family with kids camping weekend only. We could do the adult campout some other weekend. Do we have any takers?

I might be interested.. My son, who is 4, has had a PW50 for a year now. He still has the training wheels and the throttle set pretty low but he loves to ride. He especially like to follow Daddy around. I know he would enjoy camping in a tent and riding dirt bikes. Now Momma only does camping in the RV.

Sounds like a good time. I could bring my WR too. Let me know if you get something together.

Sounds good. We have about 40 acres of open hay fields to let them loose on, and about 100 acres with trails. Perfect learning place with nothing to hit. Even might have room for an RV, somewhere. This will be a family thang.

I'd love to, but my baby and I have taken the day off to spend some time together. Nothing personal, but ADV guys are not a part of our plan.


I'd be good for Thurs or Fri though!

Well that's mighty kind of you Jeff. My son (12)is showing a lot of interest in riding his Honda XR 80. It's running rough and I need to get it straighten out. But if the dates work, I'd love to get him out, it's been awhile.

I'm leaning towards Memorial Day weekend, if we can get enough who want it. Am planning a low key, camp, ride, relax, weekend. Have a couple propane grills that can be used for cooking. Lots of fire wood for campfires and smores cooking. Might even get a porta-john if needed. Wives are welcome, but will they camp? We do have hot showers and nice toilets inside for them if needed. We can use the woods! God it is great to be a boy, the whole world is your toilet.

So far I know we have a 10 y.o, a 7 y.o. and me (52 y.o going on 14) The bikes are a CRF70R, a PW80, and XR100, etc. It would be neat to have an ADV-in-training gang photo op.

Jeff,

Well we are out on Memorial Day weekend, my Father will turn 75 on June 2 and we are going to throw a nice party on his farm. He doesn't know, should be a hoot!

Thanks anyway, y'all have fun.
