    Rode AAA Farms today. Pretty neat place. Two-way trails are a little sketchy and finding your way around with no maps or trail numbers is a guessing game, but overall cool place. Couple of sort-of challenging hill climbs due to how muddy it was today. I think the guy is playing with fire not having waivers, as it's 90%, fairly open, high-speed double track, but perhaps he's got it figured out. I'll gladly pay the extra $10 and drive an extra 30 mins for Brushy 9 times out of 10 but still had a fun time.

    Did you ride there with the Hooligans? We had a small group go yesterday.

    So what's the scoop on this place? Open to the public with $10 donation? 7 days a week?

    I grew up in WS, is this out south of Yadkinville? Might bring a bike when I visit next time... :ricky


    Also, no offense to 4-wheelers, but are there a lot of them? Bad enough meeting a bike in a blind turn, but I wouldn't want to meet a 4-wheeler...

    Not really a donation, the owner will come up to you as soon as you pull in with his hand out :lol3, which is fine, but whatever. Yes lots of 4 wheelers, I would say 5:1, and two way trails, I see some insurance/lawsuit issues in the near future.

    Thanks, I'll probably pass. Y'all have fun!

    And he calls it a "donation" to avoid some of the liability issues. Like a tip jar, he can probably get away with a lot more with the IRS too...

    He's probably headed for trouble...

    I can't really knock the old man for trying to make some cash, I think he calls it donations so he won't get sued incase of something. I hope nothing bad happens cause some of the other places around here now want you to become a member and all this other horseshit and this guy seems to have more trails than the other places around here.

    That's Ron Awad (NCHSA A-rider) and Andy Parker (VXCS-B) trying their luck at keeping up Russell Bobbit. Saw that vid the other day. Ron posts the vids from most every race he runs. Where'd you come accross it? Are you a fellow NCHSA guy?

    I pretended to race at Sandlapper (mostly just tried to stay out of the way) and ended up having a very nice trail ride. Too many old injuries to get in racing shape again so I stick to dual sport rides and the SC enduros (gotta love resets/pauses).

    Anyone race Brown Jug yesterday? Man that course is getting beat up (like most of the NCHSA courses), still had a good time, did ok in my class despite being horribly out of shape from insufficient practice over the winter.
