Bummer about the break-in, that sucks. I hate thieves.
Loved the new video ! Nice editing and soundtrack. I watched a couple of the others when you click on this link.

Thanks for doing that so people can experience the trail before riding there. Make me want to ride there now. :D

Want to do some night rides there soon, maybe with a group of riders. That would be fun and challenging.
I love mountain biking because I haven't found anything that is more FUN !!
Of all the paths you choose in life....make sure some of them are DIRT !!

Commuting miles in 2012 = 1065
Total road/trail miles = 2800
Number of rides = 152
Trails ridden = 28 different in MI, 2 in Oregon

Just had to say I agree with Santa Cruz. THIEVES SUCK! Hope the lowlife scum get caught soon. I've read that it's been happening at a few trailheads around Ann Arbor too.

Mikesathome2....AWESOME VIDEO! Loved the panoramic view! Really well done.

Careful with bringing guns out there. The Canton police have been naughty toward some law abiding 2nd amendment advocators out there. I was going to start carrying before I heard about the troubles they had. Made up charges, harassment, illegally confiscated property, illegal search and seizures, etc.

Good idea...maybe the bears are breaking into the cars...lol.

One more thing, a wallet has been found out near the pump track. Anyone who lost one please PM me and describe it.

Not really. In my case the witness said that there were at least 2, maybe more black males in the car. They rent cars & buy the cheap window tint & put deep tint on all windows so you can't see in. They were driving a late model gray buick w/TN plates. They've also been hitting lots off of Huron River Dr, Bandemere Park, almost every local park/rec area where they know that people leave vehicles unattended for long periods of time. Had a detective in IL contact me as they tried to cash my checks using a woman's stolen identity from Roselle,IL. Cop said its a large gang of thieves out of FL. SOBs!

I really can't see how one could justify shooting and killing a person for breaking into a car.....as George Carlin said "It's just STUFF".....

But, then again, killing a person over trinkets is a treasured human trait. Who am I kidding! Kill away!

I don't see why anyone would put them selves in a position to be killed for steeling "stuff" or trinkets but that's the way it goes. If you do stupid *beep* then you can expect stupid *beep* to happen to you.

But isn't kind of stupid to know that what you are doing could potentially get you killed and you just ignore the danger for some "STUFF"? Besides, nobody said they were going to kill anybody, maybe just deter the perpetrators.

Imagine this...thief attempts to break into car...a person yells stop and pulls their concealed gun...thief sees gun pointed at his nose...thief poops his pants and runs away...thief decides to get a normal job because he doesn't like guns pointed at him...hurray for all!

If the thief poops then runs away, sounds like he could easily be mistaken for a bear.

I was out there a week or so ago...no yellow jackets, no thieves, no bears. Based on the cars in the lot, Santa Cruz and Ibisman might have been out there, but I didn't run into anyone on the trail.

We'll just see how you feel when you shoot and kill someone, who took your CD's out of your car.....I bet you'll feel like a rockstar.

A gun should be the last resort, not one's first reaction.

Ha, spoken like the true lib. Never said anything about killing anyone bozo. It's called gun control. Usually you won't even pull your weapon out ...just pull your shirt up and show it. Of course you could catch them busting your Windows out and if there is 3 or 4 of them confront them and get hurt I suppose. Course I'm not scat.
