Any bars near this place where I can get a dinner that night and maybe enjoy some adult beverages?


That's OK Chris , I have lots of EARPLUGS from the Mill... haha
Yep ! ! , there are lots of bars , Kelly's ( good home cooking ) , Vowinckel ( great italian food ) , Blue Jay Bar (closest to us ), Ray's Hot Spot for a band , a Diner and a few others , but not sure about their food . This area caters to hunters and fishermen all year long if that gives ya any idea .
I spoke with the owner of the lodge yesturday ,( he's on the town board and BIG atv advocate ). Forest Lodge # 814-927-8790 . He said not to worry about reservations until a couple weeks before we go . If there is heavy snow or heavy rain , he'll understand cancelations . But , he is in the process of trying to get ANF trail caretakers to groom ALL trails .( Snowmobile AND ATV ) . So we ATVers can always ride the trails even with a heavy base . He's also trying to get them to open the old railroad bed to us . It would be like having a main highway from in town Marienville ( 50 ft. from Kelly Hotel / bar / restaurant ) the whole way to Russel City store near Timberline trail ! ! ! I told him many of you are from central and eastern Pa. so he said he would be more than happy to take your calls and answer any questions you may need answering .

OK, the wife said she will go, but I need to get heated grips on her bike. I hunt out of a camp in Vowinckle and can tell you that the PASP patrols the highways agressively for DUI. The rails to trails would be huge for the town of Marienville but there is alot of resistence from landowners alog the rightaway.

I've heard they patrol pretty heavy in that area , but I don't drink & drive anymore , so I've never really thought about it . I'm usually the DD when we go up for bear camp . Usually wait to get back to camp and break out the Private Stock. beach

Good to hear you'll make it Feasanthunter . It'll be good to meet ya .. thumbs

I reserved a room at the lodge, and I'm mailing the ANF permits. Looking forward to meet you also 4x4dad. I think I parked near you at the toy run, did you have a 30' enclosed trailer? Wife and I should roll in about 7pm on friday.

LOL .... no my trailer is only 16 ft. , but hooked to my Pathfinder , it looks alot bigger . Gotta get a bigger $$$$ tow vehicle .
If all of the members keep reserving this early , I better get on the ball before I have to sleep in the trailer ... LOL Sure hope the roads are good that day. I've never towed on slick roads before . I can imagine it could be a little tricky .
By the way , Forest Lodge has the Trail Permits for sale on site at his store .

I told him it would be nice if he would get registered on here so everyone could ask thier questions directly to him about the area and all the future plans for the trails he's working on . thumbs

Decided to go ahead and book a room at the lodge ahead of time since it sounds like there is going to be a good turn-out for the ride . Also , he said to let us know , the trail groomer people were acceptable to the idea of grooming the ATV trails at thier last town meeting . Not sure if all the details are worked out yet .

Spoke with Frank the owner about a place to congrigate once we all get settled in . He has a fire ring right behind our rooms if the weather is tolerable or room that's larger than our individule rooms . Apatment type room I believe he said . I figured with the DUI chances in the area , this could be a safer alternative for those that would like to relax with other members and have a couple wobbly-pops or adault beverages .

I am taking friday off, so i think i will be coming over from my camp in the morning, depending on the roads if i have the trailer with me.
Looks like we have quite a few here, and i know there will be some others.

Dont forget about the firewood ban(bringing it from other countys) if anyone is tending a fire. I'm sure the rangers will be around to keep an eye on us.
