FYI the Two Harbors, Silver Bay, & Finland trails are all closed for a couple more weeks thanks to Mother Nature making mud out of everything.

Talk about ill timed. Can't come in the winter, but the spring.

Anyone have any recommendations of a seat upholstery shop that can make my seat thicker? About to try to do it myself but would rather pay someone.

You going to be there? A couple friends and I are going separately. I don't go for the long stop and go slow groups. Anyone here that is going is welcome to come with us.

It was a beautiful day to ride in Emily, MN at the Pork and Ride which is a benefit to support local trail development by the Over the Hills gang ATV club. They did a great job hosting the event. Great rides. Great food. Lots of prizes. Somewhere near 200 ATV's were at the event. Blue sky's and 65 degrees. Trails alternated between to dry and dusty to really wet and mud from last weeks torrential rains. Different groups left at different times and each group went out for different length rides up to 70 miles. here are some pictures.

Sorry...just caught this. Yeah I was there. I was in the 50mi group that left 2nd. Had a blast. Zero breakdowns in our group, just a few easy stucks to pull out and minimal stopping for breaks.

We ended up not going out separately. Went with the first group out. Everything went pretty smooth. An Arctic Cat broke something in the rear and the rear wheels wouldn't drive. He had to go four wheel drive with just the front's under power. A few got stuck and had to be winched out. A couple of machines overheated from mud in the radiator.

We didn't go the 70 miles that they had planned for the first group. The couple on the Polaris's in the fifth picture are friends from work. They rode the Friday night ride. They went down some of the trails that were taped and closed off on Saturday. They had to turn around as the water was too deep to get through and no way to bypass. Bill told me some snorkeled machines went through and the entire machines were under water except the tops of the snorkel.

The food was good at the dinner after the ride. I left about half way through the prize drawings. I had to do some serious cleaning on my ATV when I got back to get the mud off. Overall had a great time.
