My credo
I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
The only speed limits I remember were 5 mph and 15. 5 was for the campground and the parking lot area. 15, I think was on the trails. For us, 15 mph would have been a real rough ride. So, it may have been more for the SXS and ATVs that buzzed around like locusts everywhere.
At 15 MPH, my SxS was a smooth on those trails as a Ranger on the highway.

You must have felt this one was worth a repeat performance?
When I went thru it Saturday night I didn't have Amanda with. When we went out Sunday taking her thru it was a priority.

When I pulled into the little deer trail looking entrance at the beginning that headed down into the obiss she got concerned lol.

Last years trail ride... I never even seen the tubes. Didn't go on the trails this year. I'm kinda bummed about the entire thing now.

I did mean that you posted the same video twice though.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I was thinking earlier that it might be fun to here the conversation in your truck sometimes, instead of the music.
