I have alot of places to ride around my house (some of you have seen the road that goes to it lol)
A friend of mine just opened up alot his property as a recreation park. We already have a harescramble track and were working on more tracks and trails. We're going to build an enduro track this speeding which I'm looking forward too
I've been to a few parks, one here locally is really nice but I highly recommend a few days at hatfield McCoy to anyone!

I don't even bring my ATV to Florida anymore, even though I'm there 80% of the time. Most anti-OHV state in the union. Only one pay park I know of and it's two hours from me. State Parks are a no-go and the closest National Park with OHV is two and a half hours from me.

Now in Georgia, I co-own a small piece of farm property that's 38 acres and can ride my neighbors 330 acre farm, plus have a number of places back in the swamps and around the rivers to ride...

Nope, I pretty much limit my riding to water up to the bottom of the seat...

This is from a couple of years ago, summer of '08 I think. Alapaha River during a severe drought. If y'all have ever heard of "Hogzilla" the largest boar ever shot, it was killed about four miles from where this pic was taken...

'small' town, 20000'ish people. Everywhere outside the backyard is free game for riding. Snow everywhere! Of course the best spots are off the beaten trails. Extremely lucky to have so many small lakes, ponds, marshes, that collect tons of snow so close to town. Lucky that 95% of snowmobilers trail-ride, and don't break trail into these amazing spots
