Oh lord, here I go again...As one of the old farts please exercise caution when riding off into the deep woods with strangers. *warning given in good conscience*
Ok that aside, the ads sound like a great place to start. Check with your local DNR and see if they sponsor any rides. I know our area here in Ga did years ago...need to check into it and see for myself if they do now LOL
