Last sunday I took my halftrack out for a spin through the woods and I felt like sharing.  I am driving and my friend is video tapping it.  It is not very exciting, but it was a fun drive.

Good stuff!  It's always good to see folks having fun, WWII style.  The woods you were driving in. That looks like prime PTO or Viet Nam ground.    papajoad

That is the property that I was talking to you about before.  The land that might be good for a tactical event.

Great video!  Though I think any tree-hugger who sees it will have a fit! Grin

The ground would make a great Battle of the Bulge or Hurttgen Forest scenario terrain.

Where is it located at?

It is located near Patterson/Piedmont, MO, which is 120 miles South of St. Louis and 30 miles North of Popular Bluff.  He has between 160 and 250 acres of usable land with about 40 acres for camping.  We were there once for a paintball game when it started snowing, moving through the cedars and brush during that snow was impressive.

That would be a great place for a reenactment!  I live about 40 miles east from Poplar Bluff and that would be an easy (and short) drive for me!
