Thanks, we're all set. I reserved a Polaris 500 Classic two seater for $225 for the day. Resereved a cabin in Old Forge and we're in the middle of digging out all the old ski clothes.

I hope it snows while we're there. Should be a blast.

You'll Love Old Forge !!!

Where are you staying ?

There's a great place for pancakes and sausage right in town .... can't remember the name ???

You'll be able to stay out of the nasty stuf and still hit all the good stops .

Have fun !!!!!

I just got back from riding. In Old Forge as a matter of fact. We ride there usually once a week, Lake George area, Vermont and elsewhere 2 or 3 other days per week. I ride about 4,000 miles annually. I will PM you my contact info. Call me and I will give you full skinny. I know the trails like the back of my hand. To enter the trail system is about 45 minutes to an hour from home.

If you would like nice scenery and not have to worry about a million snowmobiles and have smooth trails, try a little more northeast of Old Forge at Clear lake. You can dump off at Charlies Inn (restaurant bar, with rooms). It is on Trail 7 and goes all the way to the Candian border. Smooth as can be and with out all the traffic or permits. I have ridden all of the trails in upstate NY and these I find to be some of the best.

Can you tell this will be my first ride? Can two people go on one machine? Or do we need two for my wife and I?

Old Forge conditions are supposed to be very good for this time of year.
Shane and Huge, cant wait to ride next week.
Ron, When are you going? There will be a pretty good contingent of OSO'ers up riding for new years.
