I hope it's better than it shows on the web. 14 miles????? Pine center is also open, and wouldn't be surprised if Solana opens (40 miles)

I'm almost positive I'm open for the 17th. If you guys say it's worth the drive, I'll be there. I can fit 4 atv's on my trailer. I think I would head through St. Cloud anyways, right?

Yes, you would head thru St. Cloud unless you took HWY 25 thru Foley.

You have never ridden Spider before? There are well over 14 miles of trails, I am unsure why the site says that. There is plenty of good riding to fill a day or more of riding.

The 17th seems like it will be a good fit thus far for myself and others.

Nope, never rode there. I always rode private land near my cabin until my buddies decided they would rather spend their money at the bars then on an atv. Been on my own since.

I have graduation parties that weekend.

Roofer, mark down that Sunday. You'll be getting some mail in the next few days.

Yeah, for sure there is more than 14 miles. Maybe that's the atv only trails, not including multi-use. It's a fun trail to ride, definitely a full days worth.

How much of the trails are big enough for a side by side? A guy on another site may come with, but is asking about bringing his side by side instead of his atv's. Would it be worth it, or is there alot of two track trails?

LEP, you talking about memorial weekend Sunday?

I think the majority are class 2 trails but if my memory serves me correct a lot of the fun ones were 2 track. It would be a toss up.

I personally wouldn't want to run in a sidexside but about 50% of the trails are open to them. We had one in our group last year and they ended up trailering it about half way thru the day and opted for a standard atv.

Thanks for the info.

I invited a few from the nyroc site.

Looks like most of the trails are open now. Can't wait to try out spider lake. We should have a good group again for this one. ;\)

Also, I looked at my trailer again and it's only rated to haul 2400 lbs. So I can only haul 3 on it I guess.

There is a possibility of one or both of my uncles coming, and also my girlfriend with possibly a new machine... we may do some "looking" this weekend. I also mentioned it to a few others so it should be a great time.

Good to hear the move went good! You'll have plenty of time to unpack when it gets miserably hot in a month or so.

I wish it would have gone better. Our closing got pushed back a week and a half!

    • Keep voting democrat, Minnesota.....
    • Human nature. Especially when one is emotionally invested in elections.   I haven't commented too much on this Russian stuff. Could be true. Could be all just many upset about the election results.    At the very least, Trump may be just getting a taste of his own medicine(the claim he had evidence BHO was not a citizen, the National Enquirer stories about Cruz)
    • Did "YOU" and the "WIFE" enjoy growing up in the cities?  Me personally I grew up in a farm town in southern MN and have lived in Shakopee for the past 25 years.  I absolutely cannot stand living in the cities.  Everything is amped up 500%.  Driving is nuts. Traffic is nuts.  Ever ride your bike down Minnehaha falls on the weekend?  Kids sports is outrageous.  In general if you want to fish, sled, atv, your driving up north...with everyone else on a Friday night.  Unless you get lucky as heck most neighbors are either phony as heck or you never see them.  Seems as though most folks never leave the house.  Unless you have lots of space/land you will have neighborhoods doing fireworks whenever, dogs barking, snowblowing at 10:00PM etc...  Kids rarely go out and play in the cities.  I've discovered that they are constantly being shuttled to event after event, so the notion that the kids on the street will play together is few and far between.  The schools, at least in Shakopee have been great from an educational standpoint!  However because they shift classes and actual schools every few years, my girls have never had the same classmates.  In the town I grew up in we only had 120 kids in the class, so you pretty much knew every kid.  Bussing can be quite limited when your kid wants to do afterschool activities and sports.  Talk about income inequality...in my hometown the farmer was generally the "rich guy" but you never really knew it.  In the cities you definitely know who the rich folks are and boy does it bring out the competition in folks.  And I'm not talking CEO's and big wigs, I'm talking 2 professionals pulling down 6 figures each.    That's the other thing most people skim over when talking about the greatness of the metro.  Sure if you can afford $125 tickets for the wild game, or $85 tickets for a play, or "shopping" as your activity it IS a great place.  But if your not willing to pony up the money for those events it can be a little boring.  That's why I enjoy Shakopee in that I can head down to the river and take a nice long walk in peace and quiet.  Especially in the winter!   Maybe because I'm getting older and older but this notion that life is all about money, money, money seems less and less important.  Granted I understand you have to make a living and provide for your family, which is why I deal with it, but ultimately you have decide what your family wants out of life.  That is why I am encouraging my kids to seek a life away from the big metro area.  Especially since they enjoy being outside so much.  Full disclose we bought a small cabin last year as our way to "deal with it".  Now I have a place to go to get away AND in 6 years when my youngest graduates high school I will be out of here...  Good luck!!!!
    • True, but we have liberal corporate run media and the fact you are seemingly blind to that fact shows your bias.     
    • my old house was a 6.5 x 12' (No V front) with an outside 2x4' in front for bathroom.   I really didn't notice any difference in towing it.  I know a guy who had his house built with about 2' wide V in front which opens the entire area up quite a bit and he wishes now he would have went 3' wide.  And this still gives you plenty of space on the V to put your LP tanks.     Wish I would have done that on my new 8x16'.   The little gas the V front may save you, to me is not worth the value of that extra space.    
    • I thought there was no point?
    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
