    Will do, man. Right now it is raining like hell, maybe it'll snow in January...? Oh well, guess I'll have to sneak into an open field if I want to get her feet muddy :(

    Im about 1.5 hrs from you but usually end up going north in michigan. You can take the ferry across the lake and end up where there are trails. Check out michigan under midwest section.

    If you look in the midwest section you will find something. Most those guys go to badlands.

    I'm back down in Lake County. I'm from north sub's back in the day (1970's 80's) still lots of friends with farms. Most of them sold and nothing but Mc Mansions. My godson lives just over the WI border has friends with farms they do a lot of mudding crazy kids. They don't want the old guys going. I even have a hard time finding trails in north west WI. they all have ATV's and don't why I want to take my truck, the trails are narrow. Heck people ride them into town it's legit to drive /ride them on the roads. If you find some place i'm in.
