Tuna, I think you're correct!

B/c we rode gravel and got to Trail 81 or 82 pretty quick from that Dam.

Golly, I dunno. I'll just have to get lost all over again.

Or I could break down and get a spot..... Hmmmm.......


Oh ya! I'll be seeing you this weekend!

Exciting Times

This is how I'm feeling right now.

I have my movie, 300 playing and I'm posting about my weekend/work riding that I did Sunday & Monday this past week.

Most of my excitement is the adventure I set out on tomorrow.

Terra Firma near Clayton, Ga is happenin' and I plan on getting the East TN Tag as well. I get to see a bunch of good GA D.O.G's look forward to a great east Georgia/Tallalulah Gorge/Western South Carolina picture taking,

And I have yet to start packing

A few pics from this cool ORV Mgt area we have close to home in Ringgold, Ga.

Earlier this week myself and my usual partner in crime on his KLR headed out for Houston Valley. We had an open invitation for peeps to join, but even the guy's g/f didn't want to go. I can't tell if people are intimidated by Houston Valley or just have a more relaxed Sunday evening in mind. Who wants to ride in the dust and mud puddles all day and get bruised from falling?

We waited for a minute at one ethanol free gas station in the Valley, fueled up then proceeded to a quick lunch;

As we headed out, I noticed my partners easily accessible directions to get to Houston Valley;



Winding through some back roads in North Georgia, we made it;



I'm always happy to pay my dues for using the maintained fun trails.



A couple of funny signs;



After hitting a couple of whoop-tee-do trails, a stop for photo. The trails were perfect in my opinion, nice, smooth, not much dust and only a handful of other atv's and dirtbikes.

Brent's g/f got him this for the mighty KLR, to protect from all manner of creatures and bring luck on fearsome journeys;



My DR decides to take a nap on this down-slope here, and golly gee! Pointy, hard rox do hurt, and left me with a bruise or two. But luckily, no worries about the DR and I pick my Honeybee right back up and thought I might want to remember my downfall here;



I fell b/c of my great skills of 'target fixation' on these guys;



But I did make it back up to my partner and we took a short break;





Which I found this guy attached to my bike after my pee break ;

There's quite a bit of riding down here. If you're coming to Chattanooga look at the Scenic City Chattanooga thread in the SE Region or the DOG's thread. Holler if you do!

Hey Ginger ~

It was my riding partner's paper directions from the Houston Valley Ride, the last RR I posted. The paper was on his KLR tank and I made fun of him for having a scotch taped piece of paper for directions to the trailhead.

Believe it or not, that piece of paper stayed on the DR for a couple of months, thru the Clayton Rally and several other rides during October & November
