  1. Nicole, once again great picks and we thought Higgins Hill on Andrews Corner or some of the hills off high street, or Duly street car friendly most times, Tucker street at most times car friendly and fun but, had issues intersecting Washington Street unless you bailed before bottom all were fun going down before plowed, sanded, salted… Many other off road locations too from the memories locally good to get away too like in this post 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂

  2. Two thumbs up for Wingmasters!
    While living in W Mass, our family had the good fortune to attend several of Julie’s presentations. She was working with Dick Lucius at the time, & also doing some programs on her own. She is fantastic!
    We brought her to our chidlen’s school for a presentation, as a result.
    You will learn so much, see birds of prey up close, & appreciate this knowledgeable woman & her message.
    Two of my favorites: (1) Native Americans prefer the golden eagle as a national symbol for our country. These eagles are actually better hunters than the bald eagle. (2) Julie’s anecdotes about living with birds of prey, & microwaving frozen mice!
    Don’t miss this opportunity.
