Snow in the desert is truly a special kind of beautiful Rich. No wonder i came out here!

The first time i got to ride my old 450S in AZ was at Sheridan Mtn/Smith's Mesa trail system. This was in 2011, a full three years after getting here. The financial issues of 2008, among others, meant that i simply couldn't afford to register and tag it, so it sat in my garage.

At the lowest point in late 2008, i took it to sell to Ridenow in Surprise, AZ. They insulted me with an $800 offer to buy it, and i am forever grateful that they did. That first ride re-kindled a lost love of trail riding. That old Foreman rode like a lowered civic driving over landmines, but man are they tough. I've been WAY out in the middle of nowhere by myself on it...and never once did i give a second thought to it bringing me back. It is now gone, traded on the Pioneer. Those are big shoes to fill, Mr Pioneer!



My first lost mine discovery ( well...it looked lost anyway ). Near Cherry, AZ.



Don't really know why this pic has always fascinated me so. Warm summer day on the same Cherry ride. One thing about AZ is that when you get out in the boonies, you always seem to find unexpected stuff.



Rock domes near Perkinsville, AZ.



The semi-famous Smiley-rock trail...



****'ss canyon in the fall...


From DeSoto mine, looking east toward Bumblebee and I-17.



Heard a God-awful noise echoing off the canyons, looked up and...



Utah? Nope..outskirts of Sycamore canyon, just SE of Sedona, AZ. I love southern Utah and its terrain, so it should come as no surprise that this mini-utah is one of my favorite places to ride.



Imagine being way out and coming around a curve and seeing this? Another example of "the stuff you find in AZ".



Obviously, these are all ATV pics. I have Pioneer pics posted here under my name if you want to see them. The Pioneer is a relatively new thing...but i have 25 years on quads, so it makes sense that i have more pics.

If you want to read the story behind some of the pics, i occasionally pretend i can write at my blog: Headed West
Older stuff is jeep Cherokee and hiking. Newer is quads, with a SxS coming soon. Some thoughts mixed in for good measure.

Hope you enjoyed!

I don't have any pics with the Pioneer yet, but these are some of the places I like to ride.

This is one of my favorite places in the world to be.

An old mine that was abandoned around WWII




Shifting from the Mountains to the Deserts that are out my back door.

BADASS!

See mods, this is why we need a "Ride Reports" area!

CSFI, where is this? Idaho? Colorado?
Thanks! This is all in Eastern/Central Oregon, I should have some snow pics with the tracks about the middle of Jan or so of these same areas with snow on them.

BTW DG Rider those are some really cool pics you put up, looks like a hoot to ride down there too!

My wife wants to live someplace green. I like the desert..and green too, for that matter.
We have considered Oregon before for these reasons, but i have heard that it is like Washington, California, and more and more, Colorado in that a bunch of libertards run the state and its getting hard to take a pee without a permit.

Tell me...how is the off-road scene in Oregon?

Well that is true to a certain extent, the liberal losers in two counties on the west side of Oregon pretty much control the state unfortunately. That being said the people in Central and Eastern Oregon are as conservative as Idaho and states like that. Because of this we pretty much just wave our tall finger at Portland and do what we want. You couldn't pay me to live on the west side but over here we pretty much consider ourselves part of Idaho as we only live about 15 minutes from the boarder. As far as the off-road scene here there are literally hundreds of miles of roads and trails here in the desert and 100's more up in the timber near Baker, OR about 2 hours from here.

As for wanting to live somewhere green, that would be the west side of Oregon but is she sure she wants to live where it rains ALL the time? My sister moved over there from the desert and HATES the place because of all the rain. It's beautiful to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there for this reason AND to loony libs.

This time of year. I ride in snow. These are photos of my property in WI. This is where the Pioneer will spend most of her time.

All of these snow pics have me longing for some snow. It has rained 5 weekends in a row and my property has two spring feed creeks that keep overflowing due to rains. So every time I ride I'm slinging mud. Someone posted about the clay stains on their sxs. Mine seems to come clean when washed but I don't want to spend an hour a day cleaning just to get muddy again. Keep the pics coming.

Did some coyote calling today, so I got to visit more places that I like to ride. Didn't take the Pioneer but that's not what you want to see anyway:D
