We're going to host a meeting to discuss starting a RL4WD chapter in the Madison / Sauk City area. We have landowners interested, trails to mark, and more riding areas to create. Being there are now dozens of RL4WD members in the area, it's time to talk about making their own chapter. 

Ryan Harden from RL4WD will present and have materials available on how to register a club with the state, get a checking account, how to run meetings, etc. It's not as difficult or expensive as some would think. 

Starting a chapter under RL4WD offers many benefits such as being part of the universal membership (fundraising split) and not having any membership processing costs. You'll also get your own section on the website, be in charge of your local trails and events, and have the availability to obtain affordable club landowner insurance. 

After the meeting, we'll grab lunch and do a ride in the afternoon or maybe survey some areas we want to scout. Please bring a CB and/or 2-meter ham radio if you're going on the ride. Make sure your vehicle meets the rig checklist, print that off and sign those here - https://rl4wd.com/trails/waiver

The trail ambassador program is participating in our second SARX training as part of the Air Coordination Group. The Air Coordination Group, or ACG, is a joint effort of air assets in Wisconsin spearheaded by Wisconsin Emergency Management. The goal of the ACG is to provide local emergency management with air assets for search and rescue, damage assessment and law enforcement operations. Units involved in the ACG include Wisconsin National Guard, Civil Air Patrol, State Patrol, WI DNR, Coast Guard, Flight for Life, WI Drone Network and the trail ambassadors as ground support. 

A little background on the SARX training. This is the 3rd event for the WEM Air Coordination Group, where we dedicate a full day of training to the air assets involved in the group (including the trail ambassadors). Last year we did the training in three separate locations, where the trail ambassadors were involved with two of the three. We used Bryan Much in one spot as a ground target and myself and Scott Burkhart were in another spot being targets and ground support crews being directed towards the victim.

This year, we are in charge of one location: Dyracuse Recreation Park. Our job is to setup a few training missions to challenge the air assets in locating ground targets and guiding search teams to said targets. This is actually a two-day event, with classroom training on the 28th in Baraboo and field training on the 29th(if anyone wants to attend the 28th training please let me know, it’s a great training exercise and it’d be nice to have representation). Sadly, the 28th is also the ORV funding meeting, so that rules myself and Rob out. I will be driving down to Baraboo after the funding meeting to retrieve two dummies from the WEM team.

On the 29th, the day kicks off with a briefing at the Baraboo Airport at 6am. Division 1 trail ambassador & responder Amanda Stibb (Princeton Fire Department) will be going to this meeting as she is our ground safety officer for the day. At this briefing she will be representing us and collecting 5 air to ground radios from WEM. Back at the park, we will start setting up at 7am. We need to set out two dummies in the park that can be spotted by the air team. However, they won’t be in easy to spot locations. The third target will be a manned volunteer. They will park their machine at a designated spot and walk away from it. No vests will be worn. We will have a Army National Guard officer assigned to our location to assist with operations.

In the morning, we will have a UH-72 Lakota fly over to the park. About 15 minutes prior to that, we should see fixed-wing aircraft from state patrol, civil air patrol and possibly DNR. The fixed-wing aircraft will work with the helicopters in identifying the ground targets. They will also radio our team once they are inbound so we can give them more direction.

In the afternoon, the same scenario will take place, however instead of the UH-72, we will have a UH-60 Blackhawk. This aircraft will have thermal imaging and the ground targets will be re-set with a little more challenge. I will try to get a thermal blanket on the dummy as well from a survival kit.

Safety is going to be a major priority for the day. The park will be closed so we won’t have to worry about others in the park.

Watch for more info in the coming days as we solidify the plans for the training.

We're hosting our first Fall crawl at Big Snow Resort, the owners of Indianhead and Blackjack Mountains near Wakefield, MI. In August, we scouted this amazing facility and built crawling trails on the mountain while we brushed level 2-5 trails as well. 

The cost is $15 per rig and $48 per night for a room so $63 a day to stay and play! If you plan on going on the public OHV trails, you'll need a Michigan ORV sticker (click the link to purchase). If you're only riding on-site, you do not need an ORV sticker. RSVP for this event with Big Snow Resort at - (800) 346-3426.

Trail maps are being made and will be available for print and GPS files soon. 

The trails on the location are being built to be slow-speed trails. A few are level 3-6, the trails in the woods on the mountain are very slow and crawly. Many of the trails are being upgraded from flat dirt in the basin, to more of a challenge. Some trails are just hilly but mostly flat, others are nice and crawly, the point is there's something for everyone but we're they're still building. 

Enjoy the amazing views at the top of the mountain, the delicious food and drink at the Sky Bar & Grille and enjoy the pool, hot tub, and sauna. Play games, explore the local shops and eateries and relax in a way only Upper Michigan can do! 

Live music at the Sky Bar & Grille Friday AND Saturday night! 

Groups will begin forming Friday around midday, you do not have to be ready to go at any specific time, look for trail guide ambassadors who're ready to go and be on channel 16 on CB or 146.460 MHz VHF 2 Meter Ham Band (preferred if you're going on the public trails). 

Groups will be forming and going out continually so the CB and Ham radios will be essential. 

There are two fuel stations and local food a few miles down the road if you need to resupply. 

Rules - 

You must follow the rig checklist -  https://rl4wd.com/rigchecklist and be sure your rig is ready to go. Your parking brake must be functional and hold you on a hill. You MUST tie down all your gear as we'll be on some fairly steep hills on some trails. 

Everyone must sign a waiver https://rl4wd.com/waiver print these off in color and pre-fill them, then sign at the front desk and hand them in. 

There is a zero-tolerance policy for driving after drinking alcohol. Do not screw this up for us. 

Dogs on leashes are allowed and they do have pet-friendly rooms. You are expected to pick up after your animals and yourself. 

We require a working CB or Ham radio. You can get a handheld ham radio for under $100 (some as low as $25) and while you don't need a ham license to buy or listen, you do need a license to transmit. We urge the use of Ham radio because it has far better range and local repeaters, but CB should still work in a smaller group. Ask questions about all this in our forums https://rl4wd.com/categories/communication. A huge bonus for having APRS ham radios (sends tracking info we can all see on the map).

This event is family-friendly and you will not be forced to do trails you're not comfortable with. While Trail Guide Ambassadors will be taking groups out, you are free to leave the area and do your own thing, just as long as you're with a trail guide if you're going on the private trails. Relax and enjoy this amazing location at your own speed! 

If you have any questions, be sure to list them below. If you can't make this event, more events will be made here in 2020 so don't fret! 

We'll be hitting the local food areas together, the on-location waterfall, and more! If the hill is not wet, we'll ask to trek down the ski hill a time or two as well.

Join us for the 2nd annual Fall Crawl! Camping, riding, and rock crawling adventures at this 500+ acre park. Enjoy all types of trails and crawling with 1-3 level trails and up to level 10 play areas! 

The park features a nice sign in area, showers, bathrooms, fire pits, camping, wash station, parking for the big rigs and more! 

The ultimate goal would be to open the park to RL4WD full time, these are the first steps! We must prove to the village that this is a viable option. We want to promote a local chapter starting in this area to assist the park and town with RL4WD events. We'll continue to host events at this location until a local chapter can take over. 

RL4WD only. Must be licensed for road use and pass inspection. Must have vehicle insurance. Must have one valid RL4WD member in each rig at all times. 

Elders - Arrive at around 9 am Friday to do a final inspection, setup, and trail work. 

Members - Registration will open Saturday/Sunday morning at 9 am and will only run until 9:30am. Registration will be at the main building as you drive in. If you miss registration, please contact Ryan Harden at 920-946-3549. 

Preregistration for rigs and campsites are mandatory.

Trail Maps and Trails are Here - https://rl4wd.com/directory/businesses/on-trail/embarrassriveratvpark 

Trail Guides will be in the park, please call for them on CB channel 16 to aid you if you need a spotter in an area. We'll also have some Elders and guides to take newer folks around, while advanced riders who pass tech inspection will be allowed to roam and explore at will. 

This 528 Acre park has been in operation as an ATV park and campground since 1998. We've been involved in the development of this park over on the ATV and UTV sides and we're now advocating for RL4WD use a few times a year (or maybe more often). 

This area is very rocky and you'll enjoy beautifully designed crawling trails, some of which are right next to the Embarrass River and the small falls. Excellent opportunities for pictures and videos with your rig! The park is actively building more crawling trails out of rocks to keep the trails sustainable for may years of RL4WD use. 

We'll have all the trails signed and leveled for you. Trails are directional so pay attention to what way the trail is going on what days. This one-way trail system is in place because there are many trails you can't pass on.  

Please stay on the trails. We'll do our best to ribbon off mud areas that were not designed to be maintained. That being said, there are some below ground plane areas (aka mud areas) but they will most likely have a rock base and are sustainable. Again, please please please do not go off the trail into a swamp or mud area, only ride in areas on the map. 

The perimeter trail is the tamest trail that connects all the other trails. All stock vehicles should have no problem on this trail. Please pay attention to the signs and levels. Some trails in this park are not advised for beginner drivers or non-lifted machines. Severe vehicle damage or injury could result if you try something beyond your skill or vehicle level. 

Safety Rules - 

Everyone must sign a waiver. You'll be given a wristband that you'll need to present at the Tech Inspection Shelter just before the bridge entering the trail area. 

All rigs need to have tow points front and rear. All vehicles will be inspected and it's your responsibility that breaks, throttle, suspension, lights and electrical systems are in perfect working order. If the safety inspectors suspect your vehicle isn't safe, you will not be allowed on the trails. Period. Exhaust must be quiet and the speed limit on the trails is 10mphbut your average speed is going to usually be 1-3 mph. 

A current ABC Automotive fire extinguisher is required in all rigs. It must be securely fastened and should be within reach of the driver.  

All gear in your rig should also be secured so it can't shift on hills. This will be checked at tech inspection. Some of these grades exceed 25° so this is very important. 

Seatbelts are required at all times for all participants. If you have people in your rig that are not belted in. You will be asked to leave without refund. Period. If we see pictures of people not wearing belts post-event, your membership will be void and you'll be banned from further events. Yes, this is a serious thing, do not take this lightly. Your safety is our top concern! 

Do not take your rig in the river. This should be pretty obvious. The current in the Embarrass river is very strong in many areas. It is not advised to swim in the river either. No lifeguard is on duty. 

If a hill looks too steep, it probably is. If the obstacle looks too large to drive on, it probably is. Trust your judgment and don't take chances. Don't allow peer pressure to make you do something you're not comfortable doing. We are a group that strongly believes in family-friendly fun and we understand that everyone starts somewhere. Under no circumstances shall riders bully other riders or shun them. We're here to build a riding community together! Trail Guides are here to help you through something but it's always up to the driver to inspect and navigate, Trail Guides are not responsible for your actions. 

No Alcohol is allowed on the trails. Period. Not for drivers, not for passengers. Alcohol and riding do not mix. Anyone suspected of drinking will be asked to take an on-site breathalyzer or we'll call law enforcement to aid. Again, don't screw with this rule, it's for the safety and image of our entire group. 

Any emergencies please dial 911! Otherwise, police department Mike Weatherwax Shawano Sheriff Dept. - 715-526-3111

Not sure how deep some water on the trail is? Get out and take a stick from the ground and poke in it. This allows you to know if the bottom is soft or hard. any of these areas also have bypasses, some don't. 

Media - We highly encourage taking pictures and videos to share with your friends and family! BUT we ask that you do so carefully and ethically. Don't post pictures of rigs doing things that would shut down the trails. Also, be sure to disclose that this park is not open to RL4WD use except for special events only so there isn't any confusion. 

Campsites should mind their volume and generator noise. 10pm is quiet time. Please keep fires to a manageable level and you'll get a $5 coupon for firewood that's sold on site if you get a campsite. Do not drink and drive even if it's at the campsite. If you're going to have some drinks, walk, don't drive. 

Please have flashlights for night time walking as the park is very dark in some areas. 

Police your tobacco butts. Don't toss them on the trail or in the campground. 

If you see any trash on the trail, pick it up and collect it.
