This weather sucks

If this weather doesn't get better soon, I might have to put the new RM on the trailer and head down state or to Kentucky. Does anyone know of riding areas down Carbondale way?

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

There's a IDNR off road riding park just outside of Marion called Little Egypt. In my opinion it's the best of all the IDNR parks. They have a website.

Thanks. I found a place outside of Marion called Williams Hill Pass (www.williamshillpass.com). That must be it. If we don't start getting better weather in the next week, I may need to make a trip.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

At my house, I still have snow on the ground. I 'm not sure if any riding areas in northern Illinois are open yet.

Take care and ride safe,

Actually Williams Hill Pass is another park in the area. Look for the Little Egypt Park...It's a far superior riding area. From what I've heard the Williams Hill facility has had insurance problems is not open regularly. If I can find a link to Little Egypt I'll post it.

EDIT: Try This...www.leormc.org

I just got back from KY on Thursday guess what the weather was 30's just as sucky down there for the week i was there

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
