Was out riding at ANf on Sunday. Apparently they are doing some emergency helicopter training. They did several low level flights on the west end towards Sumatra. As I was loading up and leaving, I noticed a large "2" board in the grass. No more than 5 minutes later, the same helicopter was doing a low level flight back out towards that area. Not sure if it was training or out keeping an eye on things.

Forest was dead as a door knob. Saw one guy fishing and dat wuz it.

Hey FF neighbors... I'm down this way for the weekend and brought my 530 along to do some exploring. Anyone riding ANF this weekend? Figure it will be more fun/safer if someone else is around...

No real plans, mostly just looking to get some seat time in the sand. Thinking about checking out Tate's Hell ohv tomorrow afternoon and poking around the southern part of ANF if there's time. Maybe head up to the north side on sat or sun depending on what the fam does.

Any advice? Recommendations?

visiting

I'm riding in from NYC in a couple weeks to ride w/ my bro and my son who both live there. Any recommendations within the Apalachicola Forest as far as routes? We're gonna do the Tally-Apa-PCB triangle one day, then try to visit the Forest or something else the next day so any recommended ride welcome please-

Thanks,

Kriv

First DS Group Ride

I normally ride the street and will be riding Sunday @ Helen Guard Station meeting up with a group. I have a
2003 KLX 400. Been riding for 40 years, not dirt bike for a while though.

I hope it's not too chilly out and I'm looking forward to a fun ride and get used to what to bring & have etc

See whom ever out there.................

Made it out to tates he'll ohv area this afternoon. Nice ride, weather was perfect and forest was great. Some nice camp sites so long as the weather is cool. Was hoping for some trials but still had a good time riding the roads. It was nice to get a chance to stretch the 530's legs... Don't get to do that off road much up north...

I think I'll head to the north side of ANF tomorrow and ride the ohv up there...

Cheers!

New Bridge

Any of you FF's seen the new bridge placed in January by the Forest Service?

Here's what it looks like


And here's where it is:


Buzz personage: this is the location of a BBTOR tag that either you or Joey set. There was an ancient bridge at this site, the pilings of which are still visible. The bridge is about 1.5 miles (est) E of the shooting range.

It took a lot of lobbying by the m/c community to make this happen. To my eye, it's the most positive sign of continued OHV use of the ANF for more than forty years.
