The sketch of the house could definately be it. Its been 15 years. A friend tried to fine it again several years ago and said that the house was no longer standing. Do you have any coordinates or directions on how to get to the site?

They moved it a few years ago. I'll help you out with that later.

Thanks. I have been wondering about it for a while and hope to take a ride up there soon.

Where can I find the route you have made or come up with? I'm from Laffayette area and would like to ride the route. I looked around a little on your thread and couldn't find it. Show me the money... I mean map...

This time, I am trying to route up to Arkansas and the Trans America Trail. This information, instead of being the stingey bastige like I used to be, will be posted on ADVrider.

For those of you who are new to ADVrider, check this out. I have assembled a route that I orignally planned to circle Louisiana. I gave up on it for a little while, but have decided to continue working on it. The route extends (so far) from Leesville, La to Shreveport, La. Covering some 170 miles of dirt roads, trails. I will include in the route info different loops which are interesting, bypasses, POIs, campgrounds, and the things mentioned below.

I will post the routes in .gpx and .gdp formats. I will try to include gas and food waypoints. On here, I will also include the better restaurants to visit, as well as locations of motorcycle shops just in case.

All I ask in return for posting the routes, is that if you do ride the route, to post pictures here or a link to your ride report. Does this seem fair?

FOR SOME REASON, I have lost all of my route info, except the northern portion which I just rode.

Here is a pic to wet your appettite

What a great clean and attractive city! Nice to see those in LA. Remind me, what is the name of the restaurant across the street from the river and the visitor's center at that round about thingy? Good burgers & sandwiches!!!
You should do a quick video of the Plantation road there along Cane River Lake too.

That would be the Pioneer Pub and Restaurant.

I do need to do that run also.

GPX/Map

I am fairly new to ADRider. This is actually my first post... I see a lot of chatter in this thread about the maps of Louisiana you put together, but I am actually having a hard time finding the maps themselves. Are they posted somewhere in this long chain? Or is it something you posted somewhere else?
Thanks

Where is the route posted? I would love to get the tracks if possible. Just started Dual Sport riding 16 mths ago. Heading out to RayHyde in May for official training, but it is more of an excuse to go ride out west. Live in BR and and having a hard time finding dirt routes around the state.

Caravan- You're from BR? Don't know where to ride?

If it's not raining, let's go ride next Sunday.

If you don't know where to ride, you haven't met the right group of guys.

Post some of your routes, I will be happy to do the same. Just start riding 15 months back and have covered about 7k mile of La roads. Made another 1k in Arkansas, and 500 or so into Ms/Al.
