  1. Yeah Buddy, another Great Day on the snow ... Hope you enjoy the video .... ...
  2. Some times the problem with hand held radio's are they are kind of "line of sight" accessories, meaning, if you ride in any mountainous terrain with gulleys, valleys, etc, you might not get reception to the other users radio. But if the terrain you ride in is relatively flat or rolling with not to much terrain to "hide" behind, or you can get on a rise or ridge top (and your son understand this as well), then the radio's work great. A couple more options you might consider, although they aren't cheap either, is the Garmin Rino 700 series GPS/Handheld Radio ... if both you & your son had one of these mounted on your ATV, you would be able to know exactly where he is (and he would know where you are) & you would be able to communicate with him. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/576031 Or maybe the Garmin InReach Hiking GPS/Satellite communicator (This is what I have) ... you can't talk on them, but you could text each other, you can text the wife if you're going to be late, & you can send an SOS if needed for help. (Might be a little to much for an 8 yr old thou) https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/561286 Or maybe the Garmin InReach Mini ... again, it might be to much for an 8 yr old. But it is an option. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/592606 Anyway, these are some other options for you to ponder. ...
  3. I like winter riding ... or at least the kind I do, on Tracks. Get covered in snow, snow melts when I get home, and The Beast is clean ............ WHAT !?!? ...
  4. Yup, it's been a pretty good year out my way snow wise. And yes, hopefully all this white stuff will help replenish a few lakes & reservoirs. However, flooding is now a concern as well. And we've already had a few mus slides in my area, so I sure hope it doesn't warm up to fast. Thanks for watch'in the video Mike Explorer Guy, I appreciate it !!! That's what they are forecasting, more snow. And since this video was made (30 Mar) we've had two pretty good storms come thru. Bad part is thou, they have been warm ones with lots of rain. And where I live we've only had rain & where I ride, some snow, but mostly rain. So I'm hoping I can still get up there in a few days. There's a ski resorts south of me thou that had received 22 inches of new snow as of yesterday & another 17 inches over night ... so yeah, relentless for sure .... WOO HOO !!! Thanks for watch'in the video Frank Guy ... THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!! ...
  5. WOO HOO !!!! .... Fresh Snow .... Hope you enjoy the video .... ...

    Yup, I'm a pretty lucky guy for sure Gregorio Guy ....
  8. Glad you enjoyed the video Frank Guy ... I wouldn't say the tracks throw up THAT much snow ... .... here's a couple photo's to show you. The first one I have the 5 inch wide fender extensions I made on, the second one, I took them off to see if I would really get that much more snow thrown me ... Ah, after that ride, I put the fender extensions back on ... Thanks for watch'in the video too Frank !!!

    Glad you like the photo Curtiosity Guy !!!
  10. OH MAN ... getting off the trail at the 6:48 mark lets a guy know the snow is still kinda deep ....... ... Looked like a fun day ... WOO HOO !!! ... except for the break down ... BUMMER !!! ...
  11. Yup, spring has sprung ... I sure hate to see the snow melt ...... ........... Hope you enjoy the video ... ...
  12. I was gonna write a big long speech about me riding alone .... but I deleted it. Lets just say, you ride how you want, & I'll ride how I want ... and most of the time, I ride alone ... and I like it !! Been doing the "Alone Thing" for over 50 yrs ... hunting, trapping, snowshoeing, camping, and ATVing in the spring, summer, fall & winter (on tracks) .... and I'm still here. But like some have mentioned, if one does ride alone, don't do stupid stuff, don't take unnecessary risks, have the means to spend a night or two in the wild, let someone know where you plan to spend the day, and if possible, have a way to communicate with the world or send an SOS. (i.e. Garmin InReach or a SPOT device.) .... BTW, I only got the way to communicate with the world in the past couple years., before that, I was TOTALLY alone ....... YEAH BUDDY !!! I'm not trying to justify or say a guy should ride alone, but if a guy has someone to ride with, SWEET !!! ..... If not, well then, you either sell your ATV or ... You Ride Alone !! WHAT !?!? ...... ...
  13. Why Thank You Frank Guy ... THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!! Glad you enjoyed the video & THANKS for check'in it out too !!! ...
  14. GO TRACKS !!! ....... WOO HOO !!! ...
