Hello everyone.

Sorry for not visiting or writing for so long. From September 2013 to October 2018 I was not making ends meet financially. I opted to sell my truck (my only way to carry my ATV), and started driving an economical car. ATV riding was limited to my property. In October 2018 I landed a good job and immediately began dreaming of trail rides.

In January of 2020 I bought an SUV and a trailer, so now I am able to go riding again.

During the time I couldn’t carry the Rubicon I used her primarily for property maintenance in the form of plowing snow and maintaining the trails behind my house.

With this Covid-19 pandemic and a heaving economy I don’t know what’s in our future.
I don’t want to rely on the Government to keep bailing us out. They drag their feet way too much. For this purpose I am building (actually rejuvenating) food plots on my property in hopes of improving the prospects of harvesting deer. I may be eating a lot of venison this coming winter.

Though I have an old Ford tractor I don’t have any ground prep implements. They were sold to pay bills years ago.

Implements for the tractor are too expensive for my budget so I’m going to do the ground prep work with my quad. I began by installing a Black Boar Implement Lift system.

I also acquired a Black Boar Disc and a Cultipacker. And I have plans on designing and building a furrower (plow) to be used with the Lift System. I'll attach some pics later.

Glad to be back in the saddle.

Was surprised it still exists! It once was THE primary source of info for ride communication.

I like the fact it focus on PA. Used to be a real active place.

Good old days. I'd drive 6 hours four a snow ride one way, ride, sleep in a snowmobile trailer, then six hours back.
2008, Was more or less the atv killer,, defaults on everything, house bubbles etc

2020 is going to be the killer of all things, most rides are off, if, IF, they go on, it will most likely be not worth the bull$hit.

I plan on doing my thing, either way,and deal with it

2020 so far has been a challenge. All of our riding and camping trips were canceled, but now that is changing. Some events have been re-scheduled and people are getting out riding now. Going with a group this weekend to ride some state trails.

Events planned from this time on looks like they will go on as planned.
