Went down to Brimstone office today to pick up my 2013 annual pass and they have gone high tech with new sensor wrist band. Also told me they are increasing security on park because they are having problems of people riding without passes. 2013 annual passes are $85 nowBrimstone's going "High Tech". 04616

Yes you get the 10% discount in Jan. $85.00 is regular price. not discount price. They said patrol officers would have electronic sensor readers out on trails with them to scan these wrist bands and expect to see security more often .

Over the top thats for sure, with the price of gas and the pass going up do they really think this is going to help them get more bussiness. Guess I will just stay here in WV and ride all the outlaw trails that I can stand. I really do like Brimestone though.

Still cheaper than Windrock's annual permits guys...And as far as extra security it isn't fair to those that are honest and buy their permits to have people trying to cheat and not pay.

Well its Pay to Play, if you want to ride most anywhere these days. As far as Brimestone vs Windrock, Ive been to both more times than i can count and it breaks down like this IMO, Windrock takes better care of their trails and has more to offer in the way of close amenities like restaurants & hotels. Brimestone has tougher trails mostly due to lack of up keep and your pretty limited on amenities. Brimestone was always a better deal because of the lower price but i guess like everything else it costs more and more each year to keep these places open and running.

Well I get a pass for three places every year. Now it cost $208.00 instead of $188.oo. Not bad for 101 thousand acres of land. Moreover, I am thankful to have these places to ride. Just saying.

I bought 2 yearly passes this past weekend. No complaints here. Good riding and not that bad of a drive.

Actually it's better, it eliminates all the paper and ink and filing......Also, your personal photo, any medical conditions, info and contact is now encoded in the electronic band along with the customers photo for ID, when the security scans it all this info will show up, if the photo doesnt match then they someone is trying to cheat.

Also the personal info and medical condidtions are important, for instance IF security gets called or finds someone non responsive they do a quick scan and find out who the person is and what if any medical problems they might have. and can notify EMT in route, if the person is injured and can't respond or gives inaccurate info due to being hurt or something. These bands will be given on all permits, daily through yearly.

Brimestone was always a better deal because of the lower price but i guess like everything else it costs more and more each year to keep these places open and running.

Gunny, Dudley and Rhondy have been doing trail work with the D3 for the last 4-6 weeks. they try to simply bring blue trails that have turned red back into spec, same for green.

As far as taking care of them Dudley tells me he always get's stopped when they are on a trail with the dozer people saying, they are ruining the trails by working them......most people come to Brimstone for the "tougher" trails and majority want them left in challeging condition.

Huntsville is No Oak Ridge so naturally not as many Restuarants and hotels, but between all the cabins and camp spots from various renters to choose from, there should be accomadations for everyone. And yes, insurance goes up, fuel goes up, employee's have to be paid and so on, so Yes.....but they do try to keep riding open and affordable.

Also, Brimstone and Windrock are private business'.....neither get any help from the state or local governments. Harlan get's help from the state of Ky for Adventure Tourism, the TWRA also gets funding from the state to help. When Windrock and Brimstone has the pay the bills soely by permit sales and whatever sponsership they can get.

$85.00 per year = about $7.09 per month
$85.00 per year = about $1.64 per week
$85.00 per year = about 24 cents per day

All open 24/7/365.........Brimstone appreciates all it's riders and the Southern SxS Club.

I currently keep my yearly passes on my key chain. so what does it cost when I forget my new fangled wrist watch at home and need a new one. I know that'll happen.

Ride Cost comparison: I pay $400 a year or volunteer 40 hrs to maintain a family membership in an 800 acre ride park 60 miles from my house. Let me spell that again "eight hundred acres"....because we have no where to ride.

I will drive 5 hours to Brimstone, 20 bucks is not going to change my lifestylle one way or the other, yet. Will most likely buy the triple crown pass this year, they should come up with a bundle price, Brimstone, Windrock (never been yet), and annual WMA......have Dan's maps now on GPS so ready to ride.

I would say about the same to reprint the ID badge but not sure. just keep it in the RZR, wrap it around the grab bar or zip tie it to the unit somewhere? no forgetting

For the record this is what I was talking about like heith. The price is still way worth the value I love Brimstone but the wristband is not as easy to keep up with as the old card ID. Also im not a huge fan of johnny law at the end of the trail holding us up checking ID and passes of all my buddies (I hardly ever ride in a group of less than 5) and that can get old quick.
