how many of you guys would be interested in a group ride in western indiana to do some riding.
the park is 800 acres on an abandoned gravel pit with a mix of everything from dunes, pea gravel, mud, and rock crawling.
check out the website and photo gallery....yea, you guys know you wanna come!

i've been here before, like i told you before Moto.....never with the rhino...back in the sport bike days...
i would at least consider it....i believe they have campgrounds on site now......
i don't think it would be anything like riding at Evarts or Windrock or Brimstone though.....just my .02

I have been to little egypt a couple of times, but that is about it. I normally am not a big night rider, but I guess I need to try it with you guys sometime.

Just let me know when you go. I should be able to go. I try to go 2-3 times a year.
With the rhino you can go back to 4x4 area.

I know what you mean about the long drives.....when we went to Black Mountain in Evarts, KY last year it took about 6 hours...but we stopped a couple times....if you have some guys to drive with it ain't to bad though.....

I took the Rhino to Interlake the weekend after it re-opened. It was actually pretty cool. We were only there for about 4 hours so there is a ton of the park that we didn't even get to explore. there are no maps or anything so if you don't know the property(which i do not) it's somewhat tough to figure out where all the trails are.

I had some vacation days to burn so i'm off until Jan. 5th, so i'm trying to get some buddies rounded up and head back over there and check it out again. It's only about an hour away from me....

Moto,
this is what another guy told me on another forum about Interlake....

I believe if they are registered in their home state they are good to ride up to so many days a year If you live in a state that dosen't have ATV registration then you have to register your ATV with the Indiana DNR. It cost 30 bucks for 3 years and you can ride on any county rode and state parks that allow it. Go to the DNR website and download the form and send it in with your vehicle info.

https://secure.in.gov/apps/dnr/snow_atv/
u can print the PDF here and fill it out.....it's only 30 bucks for 3 years......if i were you, i'd come ride it one time...if you like it and think it's worth it....buy a registration.....

I've been to Redbird when i have my Honda Rubicon......and way back when before the gov't took it over on my 400ex.......that place is awesome if like a challenge.....steep hills...

it's been about 1 1/2 years since i've been there, but i can only imagine it would be somewhat tight with the Rhino......

to me, having the Permit is worth it, even if you only go there once a year....it's only 30 bucks for 3 years...thats only 10 bucks a year.....don't eat out one day and it's paid for
