It takes TWO HOURS to go TWO miles through this wonderous maze
of boulder infested & muck filled trails! PLUS the SEVERE off cambered climbs & descents require ALOT
of help from everyone to get each & every quad & rider safely to the far side. By the time we finally escape
this crazy series of obstacles , our GPS's have saved our bacon once again! HE! HE! With the sun behind the clouds
& us going left , then right & up & down every 100 feet or so , it soon became impossible to know where the HECK
we were???????? The trail split into so many side trails , that it numbed the senses after awhile.
Once back on our main trail & it being a half
day ride , we head off towards Frackville . As we near the last CO-GEN we make a last minute detour a few miles north
to the soft coal banks alongside I-81 to let the youngsters buzz up & down a few coal banks. Speedy & Lee both get
frisky & successfully blast up a fairly steep coal bank & yell with glee at our success! HE! HE!
Jim & his 520KTM is bound & determined to
show us that his dirt bike is really BAD & heads off for the knarliest & STEEPEST hill climbs . Everyone moves
their quads from the upper lip of the coal banks in case Jim & his 520KTM dirt bike blasts to the top , BUT we need
not worry about that today! LOL! AS you can see by the photo ABOVE right ! , Jim & his 520KTM dirt bike DID
NOT conquer these hills TODAY! HE! HE!
With a big smile on everyone's face , we head off for the final leg of this atv adventure & BLAST the last few miles
back to Motel 6! YEHAAAAAAAAA! DON'T want to leave NOTHING behind! VAROOOOOOOOM! Off we go!!!!!! About half way back
, we spot Brian & his two kids having a nice family ride & enjoying the great weather. We stop for a second to say
HI , but soon are blasting across the landscape in search of that LAST RUSH of excitement before having to load up & go
As the last Speedball rolls over
into Motel 6's parking lot , squeals of delight & high fives are exchanged amongst these HAPPY
atver's ! YEHAAAAAA! WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!
After thanking everyone for their help & assistance
during our Great Adventure today , I load up , shower this crusty & sweaty AARP atv body & head south on I-81 with
tunes blaring from the speakers of the Speedball Express! Hope to see YOU next time!!!! Your AARP atv buddy!
