Have you ever thought about wrapping your full Jerry cans with a saran wrap to keep some of the dirt away from the nozzle?
That's a Good Idea, Thank's for that. I actually used them on my last trip and the mud had already dried and caked on. I spent a while trying to clean them off with my fingers and a rag ... and blowing on them .... to make sure no dirt was dropping in my tank. I also carry a funnel for easier filling. Sounds like you've had experience with this. Good Idea!

Aj, you don't need to carry all that rope/straps with you, all you need is a small boat anchor. I use it here in the peat moss bogs where there is nothing to hook on to. A small axe or hatchet in the box to hammer it in and you are good to go.
I thought about using a anchor. Though I wasn’t quite sure on how well one would hold up, so I just carried a few tow straps. Good to know though. Thanks for the tip.

I just saw the mud from the picture and thought, how could I keep it clean if it was me....lol
Glad you like my idea.

In the military more condoms were used on rifle barrels than for their designed, intended purpose.

Look at Danforth Anchors. They are smaller and lighter weight than many others.

Just got back from another Northern Maine trip. Only 3 days, but lots of beautiful weather and lots of miles. Here's a good spot with my buddies on Thursday. We've got a Honda, Can Am, the King, and a Polaris SxS.

That is my kind of scenery. Beautiful. Where In a northern Maine did you ride? I have been wanting to get up to NH, and perhaps Maine to try some trails.

So on Wed, we did a Nice Loop. Sherman, up to Shin Pond, over to Island Falls, and down to Benedicta. That picture was taken in Patten, Maine. The big mountain to the left is Mt Katahdin. I think we did around 165 miles that day. The only drag was the trails were SO Dusty. Hasn't rained up there forever and Man! Had to really space out so we could even see. I just checked my new Twin Air air filter this morning. Gotta wash it later today. What a Blast Though!! Everyone was having a Great Time!

So trying to keep this thread going. Us folk that live in the Northern States have a limited riding season, but there's gotta be a lot of you guys that are still in the warmer climate areas that get to ride year round. Get some of your Trail Ride Pic's up here so all of us that live in the snow belt can drool and look forward to some spring riding!!

Some pictures have a back story that is actually more interesting than the picture, or adds a certain dimension to the picture.

When applicable, I attempted to capture that below each photo.

In the picture above, you have to zoom in and look real carefully on the trail ahead . You will see three deer running. There were actually four, but I was holding my cell phone and driving while snapping those pictures. I was only able to capture three at the most.

Zooming in again on the picture above, you can see that the field now narrowed . There are two deer.

The picture above does not do this brook justice. It is absolutely breathtaking. It meanders through the woods, babbles, winds, changes shape and is just beautiful. My friend that was riding with me when we discovered it was so taken back by this brook that I named it after him. This is now “Eric’s Brook”. This is not the first thing that has been named in honor of him, or his family. For those of you that are firearms aficionados, my friend Eric is Eric Rohrbaugh. He and his brother Karl are the designers and builders of the Rohrbaugh R9. They are also all around great guys.

Above and below….. tough to capture through trees , down a cliff and from a distance, but this is a hidden waterfall that I photographed during a dry spell this summer. I need to revisit this after the snow melt has contributed to the flow.
