Stage could be set...............

This R could be a blessing or not, we'll know in the next 24 hours.  You'll see what I'm talking about in today's video.  So for now, go out and have some fun.  As there isn't much happening around here to watch, not unless you find watching water freeze special.

  4. well what can I say? I HATE the guys that say they hate the negative people. Newsflash kids, we are NOT being negative!!! We are just saying it like it is. Yes we ALL wish is was cold and there was 4 feet of snow around all winter. Fact is that winters suck anymore. The snow will NOT last. Comes and goes. A I will say I will bet on this is the way it will be from now on. Even on Long Island 30 years ago there was snow all winter long. Even today there isn't a drop of snow on the ground. This is the new normal winters people. We have to get used to it. If you cant deal with it then you should just sell your sleds. We all complain when its stinks out. But Id rather ride a few times a year instead of not at all. You just have to ride when you can. The snow will come back. Give it a week or so. I haven't been out yet but hopefully next weekend I will be out. Im not like that guy dave that says I WILL be riding on a foot of fresh snow in 2 days. I am the guy that says "I hope we get snow so I can ride next weekend". Truth is, NOBODY knows til its on the ground. Hopefully get a bunch of snow this week. I am praying.

    1. Having a positive attitude does help a little. I was preying just like you and we got some. It wasn't a lot but enough to get my fix. Rode Friday afternoon and Saturday night. Interior trails were ok , main artery trails had rocks and dirt. 50 miles cost me set of carbides. Was it worth it. YES. All bars were packed and everyone was having fun. So don't shoot me down for calling the snow that we got. I will prey with you for more snow this weekend

    1. Well YES you SHOULD stay home and not destroy the base. Negative? Explain how SAYING THE WAY IT IS, IS NEGATIVE? If you dont like reality, then dont ride.

  6. The Long Island guys just shoot themselves in the foot, one pretends to predict weather and fails but drives 5 hrs to ride in 6 inches of fluff to waste a set of carbides, little does he know he did more damage, but them kind of people don't respect equipment, the other guy is hate,suck and what not. I spend the same for all permits and I been riding old forge, tug hill and beyond for 28 years the bottom line is until there is a base with powder I will not attend nor will I bitch about the condition, I stay home or I go when good,the way I look at it is even if there's no riding this year I still owe tow money cus I underpaid for the great years of winter fun had, I'm from eastren pa., 5hr ride and respect my equipment, quit being heros and crybabies and predicting snow totals

    1. Jack well said! Thank you I do as well respect my equipment, I don't have money to waste foolishly , and enjoy the scenery from fresh snow. Not the snort and rocks. I can drive to daikers if need be. Dot get me wrong I would much rather ride over white snow . How ever I'll just wait until the time is right , and if it isn't ill just wait longer But when I do things will be right and I'll enjoy myself. Hope to see you on the trails

    2. Sorry MR jack but dont say "long island guys". I am from Long Island and I will not waste my time driving up there if the trails are bad. Its not worth it. And I have the money to waste on carbides if I choose. Heck I can buy a new sled if I choose to wreck mine riding on crap. But it is NOT fun riding on dirt and huge bumps. Not my kind of riding to run 15mph cause the trails are in terrible shape. So stop hating on long island guys cause they are more well off than you are.

  7. hey jack good to hear from you! I got ten years on you but I agree with you. this place will never be the same again. weather is the big problem plus other things I can't mention. I not going to kill my sleds to go 50 miles. then come home and wash them for two hours to get all the slop out ! no more complaining and I only have 50 feet to the road with no snow on it all winter! it's so hard to let go when it was good up here but the day is coming! when it's not worth it anymore. how's that shoulder doing ? john old forge!

    1. What's up John! How are ya, shoulders fine but cost me some riding that year. Years ago friends lived on joy tract and sometimes roads were sketchy now it would be a challenge but that's we're we are these days, when conditions r good I arrive bang out around 300 miles and leave

    1. can you guys please tell me where you get your weather forecasts from? One guy says almost 2 feet last week, now this guy says snow everyday this week. There is only flurries and snow squals in the forecast this week. And you guys wonder why people get upset here.

  12. Looks like they might have a base starting after the rain and cold temperatures. Does anyone know where the yardstick is located that is on the website oldforgesnow.com/mobIle. If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks.
