    Pretty sure I’ve done all the Hatfield McCoy via dirtbike except the newest two or so trailheads. It used to be a couple of the other new ones allowed tagged jeeps not just ohv’s? (Googled it, Ivy branch, which is now closed) “Not sure it’s quite what you’re describing or looking for since camping isn’t allowed on the trail system and the Jeep trails are honestly kinda limited if I remember correctly. But aren’t there some good several day backcountry routes on the upper peninsula of Michigan??

    My place in moorefield is a cold weather camping option for next weekend if the rain in the forecast changes. I’ve got some trails and there’s a good system of private roads to explore, shooting is fine but I’m afraid of tannerite...

    We used some Tannerite to dispose of some left over pumpkins - fun stuff and no mess to clean up.

    I’m doing something that weekend as it’s blocked off. Relic run has always interested me, and it would be a good reason to wheel the red 78 40 with the rest of the museum pieces including Bob and Schmucko. I think it’s the same date as the Virginia cancer charity wheel too, so we have to decide which one.

    Last year's Relic Run was June 9-11th. Wonder why they pushed it up a month and a half. I'd definitely drive my 40 to this but continuing on my bad luck for 2018 events my wife's birthday is on the 28th. :bang:

    I’m out of the country, returning on the 25th. I might be able to get my poop in a group in time but I’m old and worn out.

    relic run is a good event. It has really grown over the last few years. I would say one of the biggest reason its now in April is the heat.

    Blowers posted that the VA charity run is already sold out. That makes streamlining a decision easier. I’m all for doing this relic run. Always nice to try new events and trails.
