4 Wheeling offroad at the peak of the fall season
There was nothing like coming to the top of the mountain, and reaching a clearing that gave you a view across the valley.  Time and again, we stopped just to look at scenes like these.  It isn't often that we can get lucky enough to not only pick a perfect weekend as far as the fall season foliage goes, but to have the fortune of good weather to enjoy it is a real bonus.

 

 
 

 

     
     

  

     
   
     
 

  

 

   
 
As the weekend wore down, we had plenty to talk about over the camp fire Saturday night.  Mud holes, great weather, fall foliage, trespassing laws, posted land (or lack there of), Jeeps slipping off the trail, new parts, new carbs, shackle lifts, broken transmissions, and what we'll be doing next hunting season.  Let's talk about clearing our own trails on the land we own up here.  There's potential back there.  And we won't have to worry about squirrel hunters.
Over the glow of the campfire, came the glow of two Mac laptops, up linked through a broadband connection ... researching.  What did we learn?  Well we learned that the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes of the Vehicle Code (Title 75) section (a) and (b) states:

3717. Trespass by motor vehicle.
(a) General rule.--It is unlawful for a person to knowingly operate a motor vehicle on private real property other than a private road or driveway without consent of the owner or lessor of the real property.

(b) Operation of motor vehicle on private road or driveway prohibited.--Except when necessary as a result of emergency or when necessary to provide the operator a means of turning his vehicle around on portions of highways where no other means of turning around is provided, it is unlawful, without the consent of the owner or lessor, for a person to knowingly operate a motor vehicle on a private road or driveway. There shall be a rebuttable presumption that a person has knowingly violated this subsection if the owner or lessor of the road or driveway has placed, at or near the points of entry from public or private vehicular access, a gate, fence or similar obstruction or a readily visible sign that would reasonably convey that the unauthorized operation of motor vehicles on the road or driveway is prohibited.

 

 

Great shot of the campfire Lewis.  There's something about a campfire that contrasts two battery operated laptops browsing the Internet that just give you a warm feeling.  Or maybe it was the roman candles and bottle rockets that did that.   Alright, who threw that thing in the fire?  Give me another beer.
