I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
How far is it from you? It takes me just over 3 hours to get there.
Yes, that place seems to go on FOREVER. Then you get to a sign that marks the end of their property... and the trails keep going and going and going.... You can ride the trails all the way to Famous Reading Offroad in St.Clair (if you don’t know it, look it up. It’s another great place to ride.)
I’ve also been to Centrailia. It’s an old abandoned coal miners town the they caught the coal seam under the town on fire. They can’t put it out, so the government just bought everyone out and blocked off access to the town. It’s pretty cool to go riding through a ghost town, I just wish the a$$holes would stop tagging everything with spray paint.

Is that underground coal fire in Pennsylvania?

I think I've seen a what on earth episode on that.

I went to Famous Reading once on a guided ride with the guy that broke their red trails, it's the hardest wheeling I've ever done. I thought about getting the membership there, but I don't know if they've broken enough difficult full size trails yet.

I'm only about 2 hours from AOAA and 90 mins from Rausch. Where I was in jersey I'd have been about 3 from AOAA and 2.5 from Rausch.

FRO is 20k acres... I’m sure you’ll find somewhere to ride.

So here's where I'm at after that ride -

  • Need new relays for the fuel system
  • Clean out and maybe redo the fuse boxes
  • Pull the fuel cell and re-install the fuel return (blech)
  • Maybe do hydramat instead of the walbro pickups?
  • Figure out the intermittent fuel leak
  • Brakes/pads/rotors on all 4 corners (parts are at least a month out here, go figure)
