FAIR for ORV
Time to get out the ORV keys.

The petroleum industry and their
share holders thank us
for our loyal support.
Our gift that keeps on giving!
Should this Trail Report not be updated
when you visit this page, check out the National
Weather Service site out of Gaylord for the Atlanta area 7-day
forecast to see what's in the immediate forecast as well as current weather
Update - 4/10/14..
Trailways are going into
summer hibernation for the sleds so get out the ORV keys. Some snow cover
still out in the Gaylord area.
Much of the snow cover has gone but in hilly,
heavy wooded area's there is still a bit of wet pack. We're around a good
80% snow free with open area's about 99% bare ground with the grasses just
showing some green.
The sled trails are shot and the ORV trails will
have a smorgasbord of condition changes from dry to mushy to icy.
Friday is the only dry day in the forecast as
moisture moves in Friday night on in to Sunday.
The land is awakening and rain or shine it's a
great show to hear and observe!
Keep the eye's peeled on the roadways especially
at dusk through dawn hours.
SLOW DOWN One deer hit might be 3 deer
killed. They're carrying the new crop of the next generation.
The deer are extremely hungry and the new grass
growth just beginning along the roadways will be bringing them out like
ants to the picnic basket..
Daytime Highs Friday and
Saturday should reach the low 60's. The cold front moves in beginning Sunday
with highs in the low to mid 50's. Monday to Wednesday temps should hover
around the mid 30's. Thursday begins the bounce back with highs in the
Nighttime Lows tonight are to drop to the
high 20's, mid 30's Friday night, low 40's Saturday night.. Sunday in the
low 30's then dropping to the teens Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Precipitation forecast calls
for dry cloudy skies Friday then the chance for light rain moves in Friday
night. Saturday the light rains continue turning to all out rain for Saturday
night and Sunday. Saturday night might even bring a thunderstorm. Monday
might return some snows then the skies dry up Monday night on in to the
coming mid week.
JUST IN CASE
Still some ice pack on the side trails that
are in heavy wooded protected area's with potentially deep frozen
over puddles. Don't let that glossy ice fool you.
Keep a bucket of traction dust and a square
nosed shovel handy in case you get in a pinch out in da boonies. Even with
4wd. That is just 4 wheels spinning crazy.
It helped me on Wednesday morning while out
for a bunch of info, forecasts, maps, satellite & radar and
every aspect of weather and climate you can think of.
Any significant changes in conditions,
the Trail Report will be updated as warranted.

They keep a selection of Antler Velvet supplements derived from the
Red Deer raised in New Zealand..
Consider all the minerals and nutrients
the elk uses to get those antlers so flippin' huge and strong in a manner
of mere months. These minerals and nutrients help the body cope with arthritis,
sore joints and muscles, growth factors for bone and muscle health.
From those living with aches and pains to body builders and sports
junkies, it's in there!
Side effects of Elk Antler Velvet usually appear in Autumn which
may include growing antlers, an urge to bugle, scrape the ground and head
butt any thing or any body that comes near your harem. A slight inconvenience
but they do fall off in the spring.
