Lisa's..........this time, but it's hard to beat Susie's. It's just not on my "around Red Bud" (but not in Red Bud) loop!

I'd like to do one, and I could leave a trailer hitched to the minivan so my wife could provide South MO emergency support. Lodging available at the cabin, depending on where we wanted to start.

Thoughts?
Yes!

Took a small band of orange out yesterday and rode south until started raining.


We took a short hike to look a bridge I've been scoping out for a couple years

Was there a while back--------without a gps you may never find it------you'll have to take a hike to get to it.
Just about 200 yds.
It's on an old road that isn't even there anymore.

It's here:

N38 00.013'
W89 39.454'

The road is somewhat grown in but you can still follow it, about a 1/4 mile walk. Park at the first creek crossing, move fast stay quiet...that's all I'm gonna say.

I don't claim to know much about bridges but it looks like a pretty common design. Now I need to go find the one you were talking about.

freezing rain fun.

Well Saturday I went to Kansas city from Jeff City on 50. not to bad other than stops due to not having the right gloves. then I may have stayed a bit longer than I pland and got chased down by the storm on the way back to Jeff. Around tipton I stoped for fuel then the race was on. I made it before the roads froze but as you can see I picked up a few pounds of ice. As far as I can remamber this is the first time that I have riden in freezing rain.

here is a video I made with my cold shaking hands and also some blurry images.

Hey Mizzou fans, does anybody happen to have tonight's game on their DVR or Tivo?

I took Stuboy, and at halftime my phone started going crazy with messages that we were on TV. I'd like to get a screen shot or clip of whatever they had up there. His Kindergarten class (not to mention grandparents, mom and I) would think that's just pretty cool.

Anybody?
