We went and had a great time. Rode about 4 hrs, and only left then because we were cold and hungry. Next time we ride on a chilly day, we will plan ahead and take coffee, cocoa, hoodies, and FOOD. We weren't sure how long we would want to ride this time, but the trails were wide open because the foliage has died off, and we found trails we had never even seen before. Got some good speed up. Had to turn around a couple of times because Truman Lake (and all of the mini-lakes) are up, and over some of the lakeshore trails, but the dam to the strips is not even close to being covered. The puddles aren't too bad, either, just mud for the most part, the rest of the ground was dry. We all got stuck or high centered at least once (Rickey a few times), even the Grizzly found a Deepwater Sleeper Puddle (MUCH deeper than it looks!) out by the little lake by the brickyard. Met a nice guy on an Arctic Cat 650 from Pittsburg, Ks. He rides Colorado frequently, and we talked about that. Now we want to go more than ever! Also met a father and son up from Pomme de Terre Lake. They said that they are cracking down on riding around the lake on the gravel roads and trails there, so they come up to ride their Yamaha 225 dirtbikes. Not a whole lot of trucks in the parking lot, but a nice day of riding for all who came. We got about halfway down, all loaded up, and realized it was hunting season. Talked to a couple of older guys on quads when we got there about it, they had only seen 2 hunters and their truck on the SE corner by the road, and they had told them that they were not allowed to be hunting there. The hunters said they were "just resting". No other issues, great time riding. Reg got some more practice on the Raptor back at the strip, he is working on getting the shifting down on it. Still likes his bike best, though. It gets stuck less than the others. The lil' waterbug just skims over. :P
Happy Trails,

I'm not sure, but I think some of that land on the south side of the road is open to hunting. I'll bet if I'm wrong Shane can straiten me out on that. One thing you do have to watch for around deer season is the hunters. A few years ago Paula and I found a pile of deer guts on one of the trails on the south west side of the ridding area where someone had gutted the deer. I'll tell ya what, that was pleasant to look at. :evil: {At least I think they was deer guts :? }
