http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g268/teamaerostar/aug%20camping%20in%20salmon%20arm/augcampinsalmonarm045.jpg

the end of this part of the day was hell ....we took the wrong trail without realizing it and I ended up killing my clutch on a steep hill trying to get back to camp....in the end we had to abandon my atv and Kelly had to ride the boys atv and I had to double the boy on hers to get back to camp before dark.....we made it before dark and with the help of our house sitter posted on another web site for help....help arrived the next day with a local and his friend on their huge Yamaha's

they went to the place where I left my 250 and towed it back to base camp for us.

Looks like a great trip. Gotta love the chinese knock offs. I learned to stay far away from them or close to camp.

nothing like that at all really ... i fried the clutch simple really could have happened on any brand.
it was the trail we were on (not ment for us ... very steep for not having a run at it).

these atv's have only cost us maybe $400 total over the last yr for repairs and parts.
