After Kyles recent weekend at RC we are revamping the trail setup here to accomodate more jeeps with less congestion.

Hey Mik, when would be a good day for this?

That's a great idea. If it's some easy trails, I could bring the wife, and let her see how much fun it really is, and then she'll let me go buy all the mods I want. Pure genius, looks like I'll be getting those Bushwhacker flares, 4 inch lift and 37's sooner then I thought

We just need to pick a Saturday. I love getting nooby's hooked, fun to watch people when they finally see what even a stocker can really do. Dirty secret of the jeep world, you don't need to be lifted, locked, geared, and sittin on 42's to have a good time.
Mike

If you bring the wife and can convince her to try driving you may even get your "wishlist" of goodies. Be careful what you wish for...

It will be nice to see what my rig is capable of doing. I had a 03Sahara back in 07 that I never got to have fun with. I do not want to let that happen again. Besides now that my son is older and is into it,we want to do it together. Looking foward to getting together.

Looks like I am getting my promotion at work, but I decided to keep my Jeep.

It will become a glorified trail rig.

So Cheers to me saving up to mod the crap out of it.

Where are we going on Saturday?

From Treasurenet.com:

Potterville: Located in Ulster County. Near Wawarsing, heading up Lundy's Road off of 209 in Napanoch. Bridge and dirt road accessible by foot only. Reportedly
haunted, as a murderer was caught and hung and several people started dying for no apparent reason afterwards.

Potterville was established sometime in the 19th Century and that there was a lumber mill there, owned by a Mr. Francis Potter, that burned down. Presumably, this was the sole employer and income source for the town folks; since it dried up, people began leaving the place. In 1927, there was a horrendous flood, which accelerated the exodus. There also occurred a horrible murder there; a man killed each member of his family and then pulled the trigger on himself. This gave rise to the legend that restless ghosts roam Potterville.
http://www.potterville.org/
This website chronicles some recent pictures of Potterville by Alexander Sosiak and Robert Ruggiero. Alexander had heard the legend of Potterville in his youth when he visited friends in a nearby town. The friends had always promised to take him to see Potterville, but for some reason the subject only came up on party nights so the friends were usually too scared or drunk to make the trip. Finally, in June of 2001, Alexander decided the time was now to visit Potterville. He made the trip on a rented mountain bike. It was a beautiful late spring day; perfect for taking pictures. In October 2002, Robert found and read the online write-up and pictures of Potterville. Robert grew up in neighboring Ellenville, NY but never realized until very recently that this place ever existed, not to mention Lundy Road. So inspired was Robert by Alexander's article that he decided to drive down to Wawarsing on an November afternoon, even though it was raw with snow flurries. Robert parked his car adjacent to the Lundy Mansion entrance and hiked on foot up to Potterville (about three miles) to check the place out for himself. Disappointingly, instead of buildings he found virtually nothing. Robert was told by the local news media that the Town of Wawarsing Highway Department came up in August, 2001, two months after Alexander made his mountain bike and photographic sojourn, and razed the whole place to the ground. Reportedly it was because the owners of the plot that Potterville stands on owed back taxes. Robert would have loved to seen these relics. Robert documented his trip on Lundy Road and what was left of Potterville. The Potterville Bridge that enters the town still stands. It is comprised of four large diameter steel culvert pipes laid adjacent to one another. The big gash that was depicted in the June 2001 photo has since been filled in with crushed stone, probably by the Town of Wawarsing Highway Department when they launched their invasion.

****

I am interested in seeing what is left. Anyone have a metal detector?

Here is the trail (B) from my house (A). 10 miles.

Thanks Everyone. Looking forward to buying some new wheels and tires and lifting it up.

Then I can replace stuff as I break it.

Greetings from Yonkers!!

I wish I took a look at this thread sooner, I'd love to join you all this Saturday but it's a little too short notice for me to get off of work.

How often do you host these rides BushWrangler?

I've had my Jeep for about 2 years now and have been off road twice, both times at Rausch Creek and both times were guided rides. A group 101 and my own private 201 ride (was TONS of fun!!)

Hope to see y'all on the trail sometime!
