This is some exciting news for those who ride the Hatfield McCoy Trails!! The trail authority is working on a connector to connect Rockhouse to the Buffalo Mtn Trail. I copied and pasted this from a blog on the Hatfield McCoy site!!

Devil Anse Connector...starts soon...
Devil Anse Connector to start work today
Big Jim here comin' to you from the heart of HMT Country.
And boy do I have some big news for you. In about two hours work should start going full tilt on the new Devil Anse Connector that will hook up our famous and super-popular Rockhouse Trails to the Matewan area.
As you know, Rockhouse is very popular -especially among our extreme riders- and it is housed in two counties - Mingo County- via Gilbert and Logan County via the town of Man. Some time back it was announced that the next phase of work for HMT would be to connect trails together starting with connecting the trails in Mingo County together then connecting the trails in Logan County together. Well, construction on that phase starts in earnest today.
Awhile back I ran into somebody I know who is in the know who told me "something big is coming real soon," but would not confirm anything. So Monday evening I ran up to the town of Man where Deputy Director Johnny Fekete lives and met with him after the town council meeting where Johnny shared the good news with the town council.
Fekete said work will soon be completed over the next two months on the Rockhouse trail connector that should make a lot of different people happy for several different reasons- not the least of which would be lessening ATV traffic in one residential area.
I hung around a little to talk with Johnny about this.
“We will start pushing on Wednesday on the Devil Anse Connector, “ Fekete said. “This is a long time proposal and when it is completed it will connect the Rochouse Trail to the town of Matewan.”
Fekete said he hoped the project would be completed in a few months, barring any unforeseen delays.
“This is our big project for the year.” Fekete said the idea for the Devil Anse Connector goes back a decade or so to the early days of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails. Now that most of the trails are completed the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority is looking at connecting them together.
Currently the trails offer over 600 miles of managed trails in and around several towns in Southern West Virginia. The trails have proven to be a great success in regards to bringing in tourism dollars to the area and the HMRRA wants to continue that success in making the coalfields a popular tourism destination.
“This will be a very big thing for our riders, “ Fekete said of the Devil Anse Connector.
Great news for the trail riders and area businesses!
Come on up, here to Michigan, with so many great trails, covering half our state! So many trails it would take a life time, to explore them all! Get with me and lets plan a trip, where I can save you years of trying to find the best of the trails, towns, restaurants, lakes, hill climbs, campgrounds, so much clean sand, you'll think your riding in Arizona lol!
Summer will be here, before you know it!
If your over 50, so as to have more in common, join me, and lets ride!

With me being in and out of the forums so much I just wanted to start a post and let you know what I was up to when I wasn't here being a mod.
Over the winter months I pretty much hung out in the shop and online. Not riding much. I did get to meet up with the coal country riders at Motorama.
I took some time in the winter to clean up the quads and fix anything needed for the upcoming riding season.
Like cleaning the clutch and fixing a warn coolant hose on the AC H1.
I also added ammo boxes for storage not knowing they will save my butt in another month or so.
I changed the brakes and fluids on the AC 500.
And a front bearing
At the wifes request she got her seat recovered
Then I ended up trading the teryx for a new commander.
I fixed the light on the trailer from the tall pines incident and we are ready to roll!
The first event was Trail Jam at the Lost trails where we met a few friends from ATV Illustriated, Power Sports Marketing, and On the Trail TV. We also helped with the poker run.
Next we headed to Tall Pines ATV Park in Andover NY.
Right about now the weather was perfect for riding and I wanted to ride like every weekend. Besides the rides I spent some time learning about trail maintenance and economic impacts of trail systems by visiting the AOAA and the Bald Eagle State Forest. I was able to meet those who are working on the AOAA, Lance who wrote for quad mag and alot of DCNR people in charge of maintaining and managing the forests.
Then we attended the Renovo Cruise for a Cure organized by Centeral Mountian ATV along with Bucktail medical center relay for life. It was about a 50 mile ride connecting Renovo to the Bloody Skillet. We camped at Whiskey Springs and ended up riding there, Bloody Skillet, and the connector trail to SSRT.
