I like all of that area all the way south to Hwy 12. Paved roads and dirt roads are good.

I make it over that way from time to time. I think UncleJimmy has gotten pretty familiar with the area, I'm still half-lost once I get on the other side of Hwy 15.

Good riding over there though

On another note, I doubt I'll make it down to Utica. Looking at the schedule I think I'll have way too much end of the semester BS piled up the week after that. I'll keep it in mind. Might give me a reason to try and not wait until the last minute on everything for once.

Cool. My in-laws farm about 5000 acres at Teoc. The big equipment shed to the right off teoc rd if you're coming from Hwy 7 before you get to the curve, All that is theirs. Also the levys along teoc creek and extending into the hills a bit.

Our land is off CR 89... If you leave N. Carrollton headed the other direction, it kind of runs between Carrollton Rd and Jefferson Rd

We've been up there for ten or so years, and I don't think I've ever gone straight or turned right at the "fruit loop"! I need to ride out that way sometime just to look around! I also didn't know Carroll County was the biggest.

I don't know that for a fact... Was mostly talking out of my @$$. But looking at a map it's pretty close.

I stand corrected. Lol. I looked it up. 628 sq miles. Doesn't even put it in the top 10. I still stand by the number of gravel roads per sq. mile statement. Maybe it just seems bigger because the gravel seems to never end.

Lol. Yes, miles and miles of gravel road. Carroll County does a pretty good job of keeping them graded too.

It's always a good day for riding when we get to chase Trailblazer / Bob around!

I have a thought for a new challenge---

Instead of pinning a $ 100.00 bill on a bull and trying to grab it off---lets pin one to Bob's helmet and see if anyone can catch him

pretty sure he would keep it all day

As long as you provide the hundred I'm in... I'll use my contour to get some good footage of y'all trying...
