"I had a great time and learned a LOT with Scott and the crew at Northeast off Road Adventures. After taking the Revel off-road course, I gained a ton of confidence and knowledge that I've since used. Scott has purpose-built trails on his property, and the views from hunter Mt in the Fall will be spectacular."
