and of course we did tread very lightly and put all the squirrels back in their place :D

and along the way we came across some possible future cache sites, such as this beaver dam...

We are always hearing about Dave and Connie, but what about Steph? Does she 4-wheel, ATV style?

I'm jealous, those were some awesome trails, That dam was creepy when you drove beside it, being lower and all. That mud hole must of been the one a little further on the left. I don't remember it being on the trail. we rode southern Maine (Shapleigh) this Sunday and the trails were so different than those ones, they spoiled us. But the veiw on top of Abbott Mt. was worth it, and yes, we parked at the bottom and walked up.:) It would also be great to have ATV caches on the trails up there, I'm to far away to maintain them but I'll def be back riding.

I didnt think it looked to bad either until it just swallowed the whole damn atv. I was very lucky I was able to retreive Connie with out a lost of life. It was a near miss. I guess I need to start straping her into the atv

If you look at the pictures and realize the trail before the hole was really good and the trail after the hole was really good you realize this whole thing could have been avoided if Hiram had gone first.:D

I dunno dave, I got around that mud hole with no problem... :rolleyes:

I see that you forgot to add the part where my atv finally did end up pulling you out because your winch broke... :p

You just wait till you start riding another person on your machine. You will see how much harder it is. So really if you look at it from that point of view you will see that I really have superior riding skills.:D

ok, so lemme get this straight,

1) you're calling connie (yes lil miss constance topping out at about 5'1") overwieght enough to hinder your riding abilities

and

2) why would there be someone else on the back of my machine?

Ah . . . now these stories show the reality of the situation . . . thick, oozing, tire-sucking mud . . . understandable now . . . looks like it would suck you right in and keep you there.

Now you're learning . . . this is why my friend Joe always lets me lead . . . figures it's safer if I'm leading and he is behind me. ;):D

If I was a betting man I would guess that your read of the owner's manual consisted of the following . . .

"Congratulations on your purchase of a Polaris ATV. Now here are some important safety rules to remember and . . .
