    Well I know a guy in this neck of the woods that is supposed to be opening his many acres to folks like us for a fee, and if I ever get my paws on a trailer I plan on making it to Paragon, but other than that, I drive my stiffly-sprung junk to work and occasionally school.

    That's all I have happening. :confused:

    Damn. :(

    I'll be ready in a month or so. We've been in Rhode Island, at the end of RT44, climbing some good rocks and running some mud in Holbrook lately.

    I have a camper/camground up in Warrensburgh. (north of lake george) They don't open till may. But i was gonna try and do something then. Tent sites available. I don't know of many trails in the area. We just moved there last fall. I didn't have time to "scout" out new stuff.

    Did you have to drive through a couple of culverts (tunnels) under the highway? There is a decent trail that runs up the back side of Prospect Mountian. 4 1/2 miles uphill. All the fire access roads are still legal to run. But thats the only one I have done. I am going to get topigraphical maps for the area and scout out some new trails.

    I ripped my dual exaust off my 76 on that run. Went through one of the washouts straight. The rear pipes dug in when the back dipped in. I got stuck and had to back up. Folded the pipes all up. We used to run the mountian bikes on this trail 4 hrs to climb it, it 1st or 2nd gear ONLY! 15 min to go down!! YAAAAHOOOOOOO!!!!!

    I'm thinking late spring or summer. I might have a place for us to go in Albany county, it is actually state land and we can camp out in the ghost town that is suppose to be there.:cool1:
