It’s been far too long since I’ve posted.  My time away on tour, the move to Vermont, and trying to squeeze in some riding has left this site baron.  Well, I’m back at it, and hoping to be updating more regularly.  One of my priorities, after getting settled in the great Northeast, was to get the Husqvarna TE610 out in the wilds, and see what I could find…

Dead-Ends or Not, the Husqvarna TE610 loves the wild…

Up in this neck of the woods (literally!) there is a popular item to have, special atlas’ called the Gazetteer.  Put out by DeLorme Publishing, there is one for each state showing much more detail of back-roads, and even some “trails” that are no longer maintained by the state, but are legal to ride on.  The problem is; it seems that some people, or at times, logging companies, have roped off areas, closing them to easy access.  I came upon a few trails that were supposedly open to the public, being public roadways, but that had ropes across the entrance-way.  Trying to find my way, based on GPS, the Gazetteer, as well as a few other resources, but hitting dead ends, became a bit frustrating.

One thing that I have been working on is a better way to film with the GoPro cameras.  Up until now, the best solution was to strap 2 to my helmet, one facing front, the other facing behind me.  It made for some interesting footage to cut between (stay tuned for some posts with video), but ultimately, I wanted some action from lower to the ground.

A few RAM products later, and I am getting close to the perfect hitch for these damn cameras…
