Here's the rub. Anyone who bitches about a $40 repair bill while in the field needs to find a different hobby.

Back on topic, a local park would be great and I'm looking forward to it.

Point is somewhere to rent tools and fix your shit would be nice but like whiterhino said the park would have to be busy enough to accommodate that


Now they would get FREE WELDS.


All others will need to pay, or go Geocaching.

Good Luck with the new park.
If we can help in anyway, please let us know.

If and when I have any news to report, I will post it in here. This is not an extremely easy process.

Trail types?
everything. you have 1700 acres to work with, i assume you can build up all kinds of challenges.
Full size only or cycle and atv's as well?
I would have area's that were truck/jeep/suv only, and then areas that were cycle only, and then some areas that were mixed.Rocks?
definitely. a total must.
Hill climbs?
shouldn't that be sort of a given?
Mud?
i would say that it would be important to have a mud pit to pull in some customer base, but make sure it's a damn good one. i don't personally "mud bog," but the people i know that do will build there own pits and bog on their own property. now, to lure them in you would have to build an awesome mud area. and have a competition bog every other weekend or so to keep money rolling in. you'd be surprised at how many people show up for a bog with a purse.

What about location? If it were just outside the Oakland County line, how often do you think you would visit?
once a month or so. maybe more.

If you need any help building trails or obstacles, PM me. I'm totally willing to come down and help when i can. Good luck, and may the Force be with you.

I am interested until I've hit every trail once, then I'm bored.
If you have enough trails to keep me exploring for a day, you get me for a day.
If you have enough to keep me exploring for a week, then you get me for a week.
But, when I'm done exploring, I'm done.

I grew up 20 minutes from Silver Lake. I've been there twice. I was bored after an hour both times.

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze,
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me off forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in.
