OHV trails had been closed for 11 years

About 25 riders and supporters celebrated the reopening of phase one of the Rattlesnake Bay OHV Trails in Mississippi’s DeSoto National Forest in September, the American Motorcyclist Association announced.

The Friends of Rattlesnake Bay off-highway-vehicle group joined U.S. Forest Service officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for 9.5 miles of trails in an area that has remained “temporarily” closed for more than 11 years.

Driving off road presents a host of challenges for any driver. Four wheeling can be especially intimidating for new drivers. Those initial concerns are understandable. It takes off-road experience to build skillset and confidence.

If you’ve considered going off road but are reluctant to do so, relax. The following information should convince you take up the hobby. While you are reading this remember: in town, you can be in a pile-up as the result of other driver’s errors and actions. Off-road in almost every instance the driver made the decision and judgment that lead to his predicament.

After years of talking with new 4-wheel drive owners, here is my perception of the Top 10 Fears of newer drivers, and what to do about them.

Ruger 10/22 Take-DownAfter the mandated California 10-day waiting period, I am still in the market for .22 LR lever action rifle.  My criteria is for a small, light-weight lever action that is easy to stash anywhere.  Well, my local gun store had no lever action rifles meeting my criteria. 

But, they did have a Ruger 10/22 - Take Down semi-auto version with stainless barrel and synthetic stock.  Best of all, being the Take Down version, the barrel separates from the stock and both pieces fit into a padded carrying case. Well, it isn't the lever action that was on my wish list; but, it is small, compact, light weight and easy to stash just about anywhere.  And, it had an appeal that I couldn't turn down.  Ten days later it followed me home.
