thanks to steve cook for the video!
The trails in the area are awesome... we headed out from Mountain Breeze Motel and headed a short .5miles to the Rockhouse Trail system (formerly the browning fork trail system) right accross the road from wally's - awesome spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

The trails....
They offer EVERYTHING! from easy- well let's just call em Black diamonds.. DIFFICULT! We had a little bit of everything.. and then throw in a bit of rain overnight and you got it ... MUD!



There really is a bit of trail for different levels of experience and no shortage of breathtaking views!

But , well you know how it goes when you get a lot of testosterone in the area... IT WAS ON! seemed like being a twin gave you rights to tag team other people.. one instance really comes to mind.. I was admiring the scenery when out of nowhere come two KTM's on either side of me. i quickly look up and see a LARGE mud puddle.. well really it was the size of a small lake.. and I was just about to get a little muddy.... a bike on each side passed me and then jumped in front of me.. ya you guessed it.. this girl went from clean to dirty in a matter of seconds.. i wiped off my glasses and started to plot revenge.....


After a great day of riding we ended up back at the motel and a quick shower, a hose down outside for most of us in the car wash and we were in Bill's backyard having a fabulous bbq and a jam session !!!






An awesome trip!!! Thanks to Hatfield McCoy, Bucky's crew and of course our fearless and organized leader Bill!!! hope to see everyone soon!

Hatfield McCoy Trails... West Virginia- wild and wonderful!

WOW! AMAZING! KNARLY! MUDDY! FANTASTIC!


ok just a few to get out of my system! This was my first "Official" Dirt Trax trip with the crew.. As I was packing I really wasn't sure what to expect.. I mean in all honesty. I am a true snow girl.. i love snowmobiling... we have an atv here at home.. but we use it mostly for snow removal,work, running around the fields and going to our friends cabin... was I really up for all the mud and muck!? Not to mention the trip down with the boys!

Trip down... an early start to the day and the weather was fantastic!!! let's hope the sun follows us to West Virginia! we were about 1000km into the trip and luke had a few things to say about camera guy kyle's "stuff"...

15hours of driving with 4 stops.. o Even a Truck wash!!! it really needed it!

The trip went by pretty quickly and we arrived at The Mountain Breeze Motel , complete with some cold bevvies and a firepit and rocking chairs..THe next morning we were unloading our atv's and getting the breakdown of the day from Bill Reed when these two HUGE buses pulled in... and both were pulling trailers.. one open with some bikes and ATv's .. seems like this is definately the place to ride!! but who was on the bus'???




So luke, with a cheshire grin walks me over to the bus to see who it is.. I guess he and Bill had a little late night discussion and were anticipating the arrival of a couple of country singers... and the one who arrived first... Bucky Covington and his crew... you might remember him from the 2005-06 season.. both Bucky and his Twin Rocky auditioned and Bucky continued on...

Apparently these boys and their crew ride! rock on! Bill and Luke had it all planned last night.. I am ready to get this ride going!
