    Looks like fun. Chemung definitely looks worth the trip.

    Default great pics!

    HIGH DESERT DRIFTER -
    Yesterday I had 3 mates gathered around the computer, pouring over your photos, droolling! Everyone turned a nice shade of jealousy green!
    Your pics are the next best thing to being there. Many thanks. Now the guys know what I am raving about! One of my oldest mates, Johnno, used to go panning and exploring Aussie "ghosts"with me, many moons ago, and I could see the glint appearing in his eyes as we went to Mina! I might have a travelling buddy next year!

    Dumb question time.
    Those ATV's - are all models manual shift or can you get centrifugal clutch (automatic) models?
    I only have one leg and it's not, unfortunately, on the gear changing side!

    You can get ATV's in both auto and manual. But auto's are really becoming the most popular format, just like in large trucks since technology has greatly improved in automatic transmissions. Especially with models having 4X4 ability.

    Get yourself an automatic ATV with 4X4 and you can go even farther than you thought you could.
