Today we went riding at the local trails with the friends and family. After making the loop around the trails and had gotten to what we call the "knob" it’s an old reclaimed strip mine, with a lot of climbs and mudding. after a few climbs and playing around having fun we stopped at the top and started talking to some of the others there. Naturally they were drinking but wasn't too bad. Still on their own balance. We were just out having a good time talking and seeing some locals we hadn't seen for some time then all at once a guy comes rushing up the hill, you could tell he was mad, and I was thinking to myself this can't be good. And on the back side of the knob is a slip of dirt basically a straight up and down high wall. He steps off the quad and just shoots the fuel to it goes flying down the slip flipping several times. Then starts ranting and raving about how some guy had taken his four wheeler for a ride without permission or something like that. Then he takes it a step farther and calls this guy and says if you want to get your quad back you need to come pick the pieces of it up I just launched it down the slip. I was thinking wow you’ve got to be kidding me. This guy didn’t really just do this. So he tells him to bring his ride back to him. And he would pay him for any damage he done to it. So the guy who took this fourwheeler for a joy ride comes up to the knob. And he looks at his fourwheeler sitting there in rubble and doesn’t even stop. He just bails off the fourwheeler, and punches this guy in the face and the fight is on. At this point we are sitting at the bottom of the hill in the playground area and I say it’s time to get outta here. I don’t know what else happened but its times like these that just make me want to stop riding. If you’re going to drink don’t get wasted and ride. Now these guys are going to be at it every time they meet all over nothing. I mean really? A joy ride. He should have just meet and dropped off the quad and fought it out not destroy the other ones ride. It was not good by either one on what they did. This is what happens when drugs and alcohol mix. It’s just any more times can turn bad out on the trails. A lot of times over nothing that matters. Needless to say we got out of dodge quick on this one, cause I didn’t know just how bad it was going to get before someone was hurt or killed and having the family with us and wife’s and stuff they didn’t need to be around that. I just didn’t know what to do. For once I wasn’t able to settle down the conflict. After seeing him launch it off the cliff I wasn’t going to say nothing to the guy hitting him. I mean yeah he didn’t need to do a joy ride drunk on someone else’s fourwheeler but I could have been handled different. Than him getting mad at him for the joy ride, and totaling out his quad. I hope he did kick his “arse” for it. That is just crazy. That is all I can say for it. What’s your guys input on this? It basically ruined my day of riding. I know I shouldn’t let it but that was hard to witness, I had never seen anything like it before…..
