Yes the riding area is a public venue and open to anyone. However you may want to stop by and check out the event. The NMA does a lot of great stuff especially in the area of fighting to keep public trails open. Membership is only $30 and it includes a subscription to Trail Rider Magazine. With over 100 miles of arrowed trails 80 riders should not be a problem. There are no set departure times and people can ride at whatever pace they like. Plus there is a nice BBQ Saturday afternoon.

Hope to see you there but regardless have fun and be safe riding!

I've never camped out there -- do you think there is going to be enough room for a truck and a tent if I arrive Friday evening? ๐Ÿ˜

I guess I'll be prepared to sleep in the truck...

Not trying to jinx it but weather-wise it's supposed to be really nice ๐Ÿ˜

Mini's don't do well in the ruts. I luv them, but they got their 'issues'. Great pics Joe!!!

The boy that got lost was my responsibility. He's a relative newbie, and learned a great lesson.

Whenever you get lost, go back to where you last saw someone...and STAY THERE!!! If you can't find your way back to that place...carrying a fire source(bic lighter) is a great thing to do. Find an open area, build a small fire and STAY PUT. Someone will be looking for you. The fire will keep unwelcome wildlife away, and will give you something to do(keep it going). Carrying a small led flashlight is also an incredible help. Easy to pack, throw them in ๐Ÿ˜

If you gotta sit out in the woods all night...trust me, you'll be glad you got that SMALL fire. Caveats are if it's extra windy, otherwise...๐Ÿ˜

I'm not advocating building forest fires, but I've been broke down, and stranded all night in the woods...if it weren't for the fire, life would've been different that night. The possibility always exists that you could be out there all night. In my experience, night in the forest without fire isn't good on the mental.
