Dirt Roads close to Home

By 1pm today it was in the mid 50's and sunny. I went for a little ride mostly on dirt roads close to home. By 3pm I was back at the house and it was 68. The roads were recently graded and It rained a few days ago, so the sand roads near here were just about perfect. Fairly well packed down. The red clay areas weren't as dry and a little trickier but not really bad at all. So here are a few pics from Screven and Bulloch Counties, GA
Beaver Road


Crossed the Ogeechee River at Rocky Ford.



Continued on to Ponderosa Road.



I took a side road off Ponderosa and Whoa! What was that in the edge of the woods?


I'm not saying I heard the distant sound of banjo music. Or, the faint odor of a meth lab in operation. But it was sort of creepy

Moving on. All of the cotton hasn't been picked yet.



I just liked this tree. Many of the hardwoods have been replaced with pines.



An old house in the woods.



Nice old Church where I stopped for a snack.



There was only one grave here. Didn't expect to find a revolutionary war veteran's grave out here.



Another abandoned tenent house.



Almost home, Stoopto Road.



We don't have the best riding in South Georgia, but the season is long.

Nice report, looks like some fun places to explore. The Ronald MacDonald is more than a little creepy. Style points added for being a KLR pilot...

Beautiful photos and that Ronald McDonald santa clown in the woods is freaking great.

I'd be drawn back there endlessly I'm afraid.

Yes, there's a strange attraction there. Probably wouldn't do it on a Silent Night though.

Thumb Great Report

Enjoyed the pics and your comments. There are many great dirt roads out there and although south Georgia is relatively flat,... it's still great to be out there. Thanks for posting.

Thanks. It was a good day to be out. It's more fun to be riding in south Georgia than reading about riding in some exotic place, though I enjoy both.

Update

This guy is still there. The chain could be a trick to get someone to come closer. .

It's a rough neighborhood.

I would not veer to close. Ronald McDonald is the most creepy icon of the century. Out there in the middle of those woods, I would suspect only bad things happening in those parts. Run as fast (ride as fast) as you can.

Dead end road, if you run/ride the wrong direction, he'll be waiting for you when you return.

I need to follow you sometime, Liberty county dirt roads are few and far between and usually short.

If you don't mind following an old man. There are actually quite a few near here. Very tricky (for me) if it is too dry or too wet. 2-3 days after a rain is great. Sorry for the late response, I'm on a little tour, Al, MS, TN. In Nashville at the moment. PM me some time.

Might follow waaaaaay behind

I can ride rain or shine, I don't like roads without trees on a hot day


Good luck on your trip.
