Hello all, My name is Joe and I work with industrial machines. MtnBob gave me the info for the
site on my last visit to his office. Bob speaks very fond of the group so decided to join up. I have
not owned a quad since I was a wee lad but decided to get one. Its no monster but it seems to
get the job done. So far I have visited the RAC area in Pottsville and Saint Clair areas. I am in
Bucks Co but there is no legal areas to ride so I have to drive 2 or 3 hours no matter what. I have
no wife or childern at this point. I do spend most of my time working and tend to put helping people
with their problems first. That leads to a lot of weekends working to get machines going to get
factory production going again. So when I do have free time I spend it practicing with my new
slow smoker or working on friends cars or my own. I hold a state inspection lic and am ASE cert
for automotive service so I have plenty of people looking for a hand. I hope to meet some folks
and spend some time on the trail.

I just have to get to know what areas you tend to ride so I can pay entry fees and fill out the forms. Past that it is 3 hours
drive to ride no matter where I go. It costs a bit in fuel but who cares I do enjoy it.

from my website http://www.swampcatr...com/events.html Most of the places we ride are in green. Blue is seasonal.

I have been going to Saint Claire the last couple times. So far I cant complain too much with the area. I have not
been up to Trevorton but once and it seemed ok as well.

I make no claim to be "good" with a quad. RAC is pretty easy going as there are a ton ofdifferent areas. The areas
I have been to have had a good mix of trails, rocks, hills ect. I just need to get a GPS for the quad as wandering
around is an easy way to get lost.
