Curvy part of the woods. I think we talked a little about this around the fire. As long as you maintain the 30mph speed limit through this road you'll have fun.

Better Late than never!

Thursday night there was only three of us and it was peaceful. The moon was bright and lit up the sky.


HTSRocker and I rode 120 on Friday. What a great day, but I forgot my camera. Got a few more campers Friday night.


Saturday's ride was much shorter. In fact we spend 4 hours eatting lunch, brought a whole new meaning to all you can eat.


Got back after dark on Saturday night and relaxed to a great campfire.


Had a great time and it was nice meeting some of you guys. HTSRocker thanks for the great riding and all that food!

The camera still has a full charge and the Memory card is practically empty. The Friday ride was a pretty much a forest get familiar tour with some exploration. We did cross the new river without a bridge and while that may have not been a big deal to MR Guns it was for me, I new it could be done. Thanks for taking a chance mr. The next time maybe I'll be on a louder bike that doesn't weigh as much ... or maybe you will.

We later rode up on a pond that would be great for a camp out, private, isolated, most likely is good to fish or swim, The best part is it would be free. The down side is the shiter would be a hole most likely full of frogs and snakes.

The forest is full of practice roads for your cross country dream ride with the exception of elevation changes. As easy as you want it.

After lunch We met a local entrepreneur, an interesting most likely kept character that has some control over a spot to stay for the non-campers. We also didn't go back to camp the proved way.

Road construction, creeks, fear ... for me anyway on the stupid big bike. Panic, fail, wait for help. Sometimes, with a heavy bike it is best to wait for help, I tried and to move the pig, then I waited. The head returned and helped me stand the bike back up.

Mr., explored a few reasonable trails for me to find easier passage, the further you trail south the less GS friendly Florida is. The further you are from sea level is better around here, should you be on a bike that you really can't control.

Have to work on the ribs now, maybe we will get back to this later

You know, it's just as well someone didn't have unprotected sex that moonlit night unprotected or he may have ended up with what seemed like a flame thrower when he urinated.
