www.ATVWild.com that is!

Well, what a week. It started October 15th driving down from MI. It ended one week later, Oct. 22nd going home. In between we hit all 6 of the HM trails. A couple of them twice. A little bit of the "local" trails. 425 total riding miles. 1282 total Jeep miles.
We had a total of 11 guys staying with Marty and Lisa in Browning Fork Trailhouse #1.This was my first time there. Good thing I didn't bring the Willie Wagon. Very tight parking. We had guys from MI, VA, GA, IL, MO and KS. Fathers and sons. Cousins and Uncles. Old friends and new. We had to trailer the quads most days. Not a big deal to me as I brought a tiny trailer this time. Still at times it felt like I was on a paved trail. At least to this flatlander! A couple of switchbacks I think I saw my own tailights. 52 is fun between Matewan and Gilbert.

One of my new favorite pics:


I even picked up a riding buddy. I almost flicked off the clump of mud I thought he was!


I had a slight mishap with my Popo on the last day. I hope it will buff out.


Probably not...
Now, now. It'll be all right!


Here is the link to my pics and videos. Lots of duplicates as I combined everyone's pics into a single album.

It was there when we rode up to it. Black popo plastics further up the trail. Honda parts too. I don't think I left any behind!

That's quite the collection of photos and vids. Thank you very much for sharing. May I be the first to say:

Glad you are OK, but how in the h3ll did you end up there? Where was the trail originally? Which trail was it?

Black trail, 32, Rockhouse. Heading toward 19 from 12/Gilbert.
I was going up this hill.

At the top it slid sideways and backwards then dumped me off. I landed on my back with the quad coming down on me, upside down. I pushed it off me with my legs and it landed upright on the stump at the top right. It did a little pirouette then barrel-rolled down the mountainside. 4-5 times I'd guess. If it hadn't been for the tree...it might have joined it's black and blue Popo cousins at the bottom!

Thanks for the well wishing. Nary a scratch or bruise on me! I must be living right!

In our group there were 5 guys. Another group of 5 came up behind us and helped out. Probably took about 30 minutes or so. I rode it back to the cabin. Kinked a radiator hose when it got pushed back. Shortened it to take the kink out and we were good to go.

Very nice pics and vids. Nothing like riding with a bunch of good friends, especially when you travel a distance. Glad you survived the mishap. Now you have a winter project to keep you busy.

all kidding when you think about the way we ride vs people who just ride their atvs for hunting or to plow the driveway we're lucky they havent started pro-rating coverage. My buddy next door bought a new 350 grizzly last september and as of last week he has a whopping 52 miles on it Smile Thats not even a good days riding for any of us

The new ride is home...the new ride is home! (insert Steve Martin's voice as "The Jerk")


Coral even seems to like it. No helmet, but it was just in her tiny back yard.
