personally i'd kick everyone off and hunt.

what we do is get an old car hood. strap huge foam pads too it. when it snows you can fit up to 3 people on it and drag it behind a vehicle in the snow. we wear full on motorcycle helmets though, so i in no way recommend this....proper disclaimers, i'm not responsible, you will get hurt, etc.

can be done in the mud too or with huge pieces of carpet, but snow and an old volvo hood do well.

Why do you need snow or mud to drag a hood behind a car?Just use the probally existing tall grass :banana: a helmet?I suppose... or you can run without one just have a long tow rope and dont fall off...

Whats this foam or carpet I hear about?

depends on terrain and kind of driving. the hills we sled/snow tube on have resulted in hospital visits for broken bones, KO's, separated shoulders.

150 mph without a helmet? 180's at 50 mph? that's an exaggeration but the point remains - where to draw the line?

foam/carpet just makes for a smoother ride.

I liked the vision of 300 acres of plastic forks.

build an offroad race track....
stack a bunch of rocks to play on
put trails every where in between
build a rally track
a mud pit
a camping area
invite 1000 people or so and call it WCSS.....:)kidding only about the inviting the 1000 people.

but, build the rest:grin:

basically build a public ORV park.have peeps sign waivers,which by the way will lower your insurance.and charge folks a small fee to use
this is my dream......
cheers, brian

With 300 acres, if it is all pretty much flat land, you have a lot of possibilities. I would definitely make a small-scale off-road setup, something to just have some weekend fun on (mud pit, some big rocks to climb on, maybe some other "custom" challenges) and for sure would need a rally course, and a more aggressive Tuff Truck course. Id leave a nice large area open and just make it grass. Then install some facilities (some bathrooms, maybe an outdoor eating establishment, and some water spouts here and there), set up a stage and then get some good insurance and start hosting shows/events :banana:

Of course, if it were me, the back 40 acres would be my private collection of parts cars :lol:
