Off Road Family Fun

By
Real Estate Agent with C21 Alliance Realty Group

The summer is a great time to get away and enjoy family fun. 

Our family enjoys riding atv's. We have just had a week away with the oldest two granddaughters- and their atv's in Central New York.

If you have never visited the Central New York area- It is worth the trip. We have our second home in a small town, Gilbertsville. Gilbertsville is 30 miles west of Cooperstown and  30 miles north of Binghamton. The area is mostly farmland with rolling hills.  We own a cabin and 30 acres of land- where we can ride the atv's on the trails we have made through the woods and meadows.

Daniele and Molly are very talented atv riders- Not your typical girlie-girls. They each have had their atv's since they were six. Daniele is now 11 and Molly is 8 (and is helping write this blog- dictating over my shoulder).

We spend lots of time talking about safety and the rules of off roading. The girls have learned to respect the environment and responcibilty of caring for their atv. They have also learned that their grandmother does not "go as fast" as they do.

 

 

 

It was a great week of enjoying being together- Enjoying sport and at the end of the day....

 

 

Enjoying the a huge sundae! Life is Good!

Barb - Glad you spent some quality time with the family.  It is really beautiful out in that area.

My only experience with an ATV was when my seller had me hop on to tour 100 acres, we went up and down hills along a stream, I though I was going to die and told my self once was good enough....never again.  :)

Hi Jennifer- Yipes that is scary. ATV riding is tricky and training is needed. Off road is so different than what we are used to. You really need to know how to ride before getting on one. Our trails go over a stream, hills, rocks and everything else the woods have- The first time I road it I thought... never again- but those big begging eyes of the kids make me say- hey you only live once! Thanks
