Season opener trail run in Ardbeg! May. 4th - 5th

Alright folks, just found out i got the Saturday off guaranteed and this will be the opening weekend for all Ontario trails, so lets go wheelin'!

The plan is to meet for 9-10 am in Parry Sound or Ardbeg on the Saturday morning and wheel both the North trail and South trail over those two days. Obviously we'll be camping overnight on the Saturday so come prepared.

More details will be available as the date gets closer and if we don't get much interest over here, i'll post something up in SONTT as well.

So who wants to play!!?!

No thread is complete without a few videos teasing everyone...

***just so everyone knows, most obstacles are off the main trail. Ardbeg hydro line is a pretty stock friendly trail for all rigs..***

The videos make me drool, but the only downside I am facing is, I wont have my lift till the end of may, as I am waiting for my ATV to sell so I can use that money for my lift. I see you mentioned the trials are stock friendly.

So would I be okay to spend the weekend with you guys with my truck still stock?

If so I am really interested

Absolutely! Perhaps i shouldn't show videos like that because i don't want to scare people off in the least bit. You do not need a lift at all to do Ardbeg. (I didn't the first year as well)

The main trail is very stock friendly, no lift required, 32" tires would do just fine. Its the side obstacles spread throughout the place that makes it interesting. You can really pick and choose just how extreme you want to go but the main trail is super easy....

Okay sounds good, I have the Saturday off, but working sunday, so might just have to be a day trip for myself, but I am defiantly up for it if stock can run the main trial.

So count me in

Even coming for just the day will be a great time. But there's nothing like sitting near a fire, in front of a lake with a cold one in your hands after a great day of wheelin. That just can't be beat. You may want to call in sick Sunday

Yup, i'll be at the M&G this Sunday. I may be a few mins late tho. Gotta pick something up for the truck before hand.

Stop playing, you know you're coming!

Besides, gotta test the new mods out anyways AND imo letting your Tacoma laze around for the weekend just to do yard duty is a serious case of offroad neglect.

I'm liking the new sig! .

If you can get the Sunday off, i'd say it'll be worth your while.

See you this weekend then. Doubt i'll be staying for lunch either since i'll have the dogs with me and .....

Last year a guy did the south trail in a stock pathy with half bald all seasons. Only needed a little help (in pouring rain up a hill).
