    gonna try my best to make this trip, i've always wanted to check out H.M.

    how are you guys camping ??? tents, cabin, rv ??

    i don't see rates for tent sites on big earls site ??

    is there any decibel or spark arrestor restrictions ??

    i'll answer my own last question.....
    heres where you get the trail permits, online or the trailhead staff center, which looks to be open daily from 9-5

    I don"t know???????

    Last year we all used tents, but my dad has a old and ugly camper thing that slides into the truck bed, and my bro-in-law wants to use it this year, so i dont know if i will be sleeping in the slide in camper or in my tent, but i think everyone else will be using the tents again..

    I think my dad payed for me at the camp ground , and i think it was about $8 or $10 a night because you get to use the Shower House, and Restrooms, and they also claim to have a Washer/Dryer, but i dont remember seeing them and you probably have to pay to use them. It was nice to take a long shower after riding all day..

    As for the decibel or spark arrestor restrictions, I dont know!! There probably is some kind of restrictions, but i heard some of the loudest atv i have ever heard out there. I was planning on running my CT pipe and silencer, but i do have a procircuit spark arrestor i can put on..

    Some of us rode our atv from the camp site to the trailhead staff center to get the trail permits, and some got them online..

    Will my old Answer spark arrestor fit your pipe???? If so you can borrow it!!I:I It may look legal, but it looks like crap. Look at the Answer spark arrestor in the pic, i think the packing is fried in it just by looking at the sticker on it..

    thats a nice offer, i could always throw my trinity pipe and LRD silencer back onto my bike off the black bike, that silencer end looks just like your answer racing one

    i was talking about my new dyno port which will be going on my bike, it has no stinger sticking out at all ??? i can even see the holes in the tube inside, it also connects to the pipe stright on, not the usual factory style bends at the pipe to silencer joint, and cannot be used with that style silencer

    I hope you guys have better luck than we did down there... it was repetitive and boring to me, but I'm used to rugged and rough terrain. Hope you guys have a blast, and be safe! I:I

    What part of the Hatfield McCoy Trail System did you ride on was it the Bearwallow Trail System it has approximately 53.27 total miles, or the Buffalo Mountain Trail System that has 70 total miles, or the Indian Ridge Trail System it has approximately 63 miles of trail or the Little Coal River Trail system it has 41.1 total miles of trail, or the Pinnacle Creek Trail System it has approximately 70 total miles of trail, or Rockhouse Trail System it has 92 miles of trail.. That is only 389 miles of trail, WOW that must get very repetitive and boring..lol

    We will be riding the Little Coal River Trail system and from what i understand it is the easiest, and i will be riding with my dad an 11 year old nephew so i cant go very crazy. Unless we split up in to a fast group and slower group..lol
