My question BD is what happens when your rear sprocket is larger than your rear wheel???......... Like mine.

So that's the reason I ride so damn slow in the woods. I thought the bike was handling funny.

Stupid Dogs--Finding Stupid Dog Spring

Me and Bash3r got out a couple weekends ago and had a hoot finding stuff.

The full story is here

http://www.bigdogadventures.com/2MissouriFallRide.htm

But here is a little video that Bill took that will give you a hint of all the fun we had.
Bill is a wiz with this video stuff.

Man, BigDog, I wish I'd been around. And if you'd held on to that key, there's a great place to camp between that tower and Alley that's a couple miles back off 106 on Bay Creek. Another day...

I told BigDog that was the "Key to the City" but I think he wanted to make sure he got some more things on his bucket list for next time :)

Thanks studad...

Hey Bash3r - I'm going to get one of the Sport video cameras...thinking the Contour Roam2. The only thing i don't like about it is it doesn't have a removable battery.

$250 is my limit for something that might spank a rock or tree.......is there something better out there?

I don't like the boxie design of the GoPro's but if they are better I can compromise.

Let me know your thoughts....Thanks

I hope you two didn't have to pay to camp there with remnants of bikini parties gone by, but no actual bikini girls.

Bedtime Story

When it got late-----I saw Bash3R's eyes gettin' "Sweepy"
I brought out my little story book of lightweight adventure travel and gave Bill a bedtime story.
I signed the book---and told Bill I'd will that book to him when I died--but he couldn't have it just yet !!!!

"Now I lay me down to sleep---I ride the creeks that are way too deep"
