We could hide beers in the field! Probably work better with a little snow though, warm beer sucks!

The prize is, the more you find the harder(but more fun) it is to find the last of them.

we could use Blue Moons, Rolling Rocks and Bud Light Platinum. If we bury them in the mud they should stay cold enough....

Agreed. I hope not this weekend. I have to visit the family this week in the flatland known as Long Island.
Brian, I'll be in Plainview on Saturday visiting my parents. I'm more then willing to tell them I have an "errand" to run, and meet up for a ride through the trails in Bethpage State Park

You guy's are killin me! Seems we could do better by placing coolers full if ice'd down beer along the trails and maybe use gps coordinates to find them. Or maybe just light a fire and sit around with the coolers and the beers, seems the best option. Least expenditure of energy per beer ratio...

Bush, had a blast. Good wheeling with you again. Nice place you have there and that Bar is CRAZY! Thanks for the hospitality and it was great meeting the others for the 1st time.

Mikd, I'm up for that 101 whenever you are ready to have it. Good to see you again as well.

See you all again soon, I hope!

Tal, workin on the 101 "curriculum" right now. Gonna try and make this as realistic and usefull as possible. Been racing since I was a kid, have attended racing schools so I'm trying to copy their approach. Last summer I ran my 9yr old through many of the old Skip Barber performance driving techniques with her SxS. Was really cool to watch a kid learn threshold braking, countersteering, forced lane changes, etc. Lots of fun. I came up with the idea after seeing how much my older daughter hates driving and was determined that the younger would have the required survival skills. At 9 years old she can hold a pretty mean drift right past the cones as long as the ground is frozen (not enough power when the field is dry). Will never forget the first time she pulled up to me and stated "it's most fun when it slides!" ...mission accomplished.
To sum it up I love this stuff. This is the approach, present an idea or skill, discuss it, then take your jeep and actually try it.

Planview! I grew up in Bethpage and my parents are still there. I am quite familiar with Bethpage State Park, the bike trail, the 'old BMX bowl. It has been quite a while since I have been there tho.

Ascent and descent of steep grades
Using the clutch and idle crawling
Speed and momentum

Just a few off of the top of my head, I'll try to come up with a game plan. Reading and talking about this stuff is one thing, getting your jeep out on the trail and actually experiencing it is the real way to do it.
You forgot log bridge crossing

Hey James! Haha, we gotta build that log bridge. Would be very cool, a real test of skill, nerve, and luck! The question is how high off of the ground? A foot or so and its just an ago bruise, 4 or 5 feet and your puttin a lot on the line literally.

Yes, they all sound familiar! Have not heard those names in a very long time. I think we might know the same people. Small world.

Who's up for a good ol' fashion BMX jam....there's some cool dirt jumps up by me in Orangeburg that my son and I stumbled upon while hiking. I'll go buy a new Mongoose, or even better, a new Haro and we'll all get really, really injured.

Haha yes lots of injuries! Took a header on my old mtn bike on my trails today, damn thing seems to be more dangerous than my dirtbikes. I don't know why but the wrecks on the mtn bike always hurt more? It's as if it slams you to the ground.

Man my neighbor did that today too over at the Stewart buffer zone. I went riding and almost did the same thing today at the same spot! He went about a few hours earlier though, and completely bent up his front rim. mtn bikes are so much fun though just flying thru the trails!

Looks like you all had a great time!

I'd love to be a part of a 101 when ever it happens, or a RC trek as well!

Was anybody out at stewart buffer zone today? I saw two jeeps, one between the bridges with a somewhat large body lift and another right up near the gate with two people by it and American Racing rims. I believe that's what they were. Well, if anyone was there I was the kid with the go pro on my helmet and my dad with me.

Don't think you'll find too many people on here are wheelin the buffer zone. The penalty if caught in there is just too steep. Ashame really, the buffer zone could make a nice off road park for many different users and bring much needed money into the area but with NY being controlled by liberals probly not gonna happen.

I live directly across the st from the buffer zone but never go in there. Cutting some more of my own trails today.
