ATV SCOUTING RIDE

My friend Ernie, who I met through the Alberni Valley Hillclimbers Quad Club, needed a partner to accompany him when he did a trail research and reconnaissance yesterday.  We had a great ride and I learned a couple of neat ATV trails that connected areas I had ridden in previously.

Ernie shone the flashlight so my camera could focus

My brother Charlie just completed this structure for a client.  They affectionately call it the doghouse.
