    The trap shooting last year was fun! Thanks JD.

    Will have plenty of ammo and clays this year.

    Everyone is welcome, including your pooch. Keep in mind we have coyotes, bears, eagles and armed neighbors, plan accordingly.

    This is not a Swampy event, first off it's free and the riding is just a great excuse to get together to camp, eat, drink and enjoy the outdoors.

    Probably, the road condition is variable, dependent on how much rain we've had.

    Last year, Steve the off road noob made it in and out a few times on his loaded Super T.
