If we are busy and can not catch it live, will it be available later?

Is that in large vehicles or ATVs? My wife and I will be on ATVs. Larry

ATV only this weekend.  I don't like it when they mix the big trucks with the ATVs.

I don't like it either, but it happens sometimes where we ride. Larry

Too late! We have already turned this thread into an ATV thread!   :lau:

Those look like great places to ride. We go to a place that's only 8 miles from my house and it's free and nobody bugs us. It's called 5A and is something like 8 miles by 3 miles. They have been riding there for many years before I started to ride there. I can't believe I'm so lucky to have it so close. Larry

Stupid people have manage to get all the good free places to ride closed up or fenced off.   Takes money to ride now.   We use to ride Treat Mt. Rd. a bit and someone burnt a log truck up one night.  All the good old places ended like that here.   
The place we are going tomorrow has a huge mud bog and the back 40 acres has track, trails, jumps, and cars to drive over.  No bad for $15.  Here is a video from my boys helmet cam when we rode the mud bog in April.     Plowing through mud at West Georgia Mud Park

Wow! That looks like a great ride thru the mud! We don't have a mud pit that large, although if you look hard enough, you can find some mud at 5A. We have lots of water and the larger ATVs float them thru it.

June and I only have small Yamaha Grizzly 300s and we "ground out" really bad cause we are so low to the ground. We got tow ropes hooked to the front and backs of both ATVs, so others can pull us out. But we have a great time anyway. Lots of dry trails to ride on.
