    I have a feeling the new route will be directly outside their new fence, if they do indeed build a facility.

    If there are any more advertised Camp n Rides depends mostly on the staff policies and what kind of enforcement they plan to use. Previously, you were pretty much fine to have alcohol outside of the Summer season as long as you don't give them a reason to come talk to you. I can safely say that the Summer season is definitely out. How aggressively they enforce the policies outside of that remains to be seen. I certainly don't want to be the one they make an example of.

    Hi, I would like to join you. Experience wise, I pretty much finish last of the B’s (of those who complete the NETRA Enduros). I do not wish to hold you back or bog you down, I do not know your experience level. Or perhaps if I am too old and slow I’ll just follow your tracks as I do not know the trails.
    QQ: Should I have studs?

    It was absolutely perfect weather. Trails had a lot of washout debri but most of the fallen trees were cut away. The first water section was the deepest I've ever seen. Water was tank high. Have no idea how anyone didn't suck it in. The wyassup section was heavily rutted from trucks. It was very muddy and if you went into the uber deep tire rut, you were fucked. They are still logging like crazy around that road leading to baby head. It was the first time in my 11+ years of riding Pachaug that I ever made it out in February. It was just coolaid and myself. Another group of 3 to 4 riders where also at Spaulding. No ice. It was like late April. I'll post video of the first water section soon.
